the prince & me ii: the royal wedding

The gentleman above all gentlemen, Prince Daniel of Sweden, helping his wife’s great-aunt, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, up the stairs of Stockholm Palace (albeit maybe a bit too fast for QMII’s poor knees) at the wedding of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden to Sofia Hellqvist on 13 June 2015.


Day Twenty-Nine: Favorite wedding of all time

There is no one that I love absolutely above the rest.  I watch the videos of these weddings frequently, sorry anything before HD really drives me nutters

The Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara

Garrard & Co. was commissioned by Queen Mary in 1914 to create a copy of a tiara owned by her maternal grandmother Princess Augusta of Hesse-Kassel. The design for the tiara was changed by Queen Mary slightly. The tiara was made using diamonds and pearls already in the Queen’s possession. Extremely French in its neo-classical design, the tiara consists of 19 openwork diamond frames each with a large oriental pearl drop. Each arch is below a lovers knot bow each centered with a large brilliant. The design is based on the tiara owned by Mary’s grandmother, Princess Augusta of Hesse-Kassel, who married Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge (the seventh son of George III). In her will Queen Mary left the tiara to her granddaughter Elizabeth II. The Queen later gave it to Diana, Princess of Wales as a wedding present. She wore it often during her marriage; however on her divorce from HRH The Prince of Wales in 1996, it was returned to the Queen.

*at my own wedding*

priest: now if someone wants to say few words or a prayer it’s your time
me: *walks to the microphone*
me: *clears throat*
me: the british royal family is trying to ruin me. i feel personally attacked by british vogue, a one year old’s birthday, prince harry struggling with words, a little prince in a tiny monogrammed bathrobe, and queen elizabeth ii for calling out the obama’s and basically existing.
