Princess Alice of the United Kingdom, Grand Duchess of Hesse.
can you share details about sophie's? Rumor was it's from Prince Philip's mom. Aren't the Halo and Lotus tiaras belong to Linley/Chatto? Rumor has it that it was loaned to kate from them or that it went back to HM. That's why I always thought that the Hoop can be used the same way. I find leaning to that explanation since none of the three said tiaras never made to the auction. I mean it would have been easier to sell the Hoop than the Poltimore, which I suspect would be more meaningful to them.
