Princess Ingrid Alexandra is set to make her tiara debut on 17 June for her gala birthday dinner hosted by her grandparents, King Harald and Queen Sonja.
The dinner will take place at the Royal Palace and see the Norwegian Royal Family joined by many royals from Europe – including most of Ingrid Alexandra’s godparents.
But what tiara will the future Queen of Norway wear for this milestone?
The Princess was reportedly gifted the Boucheron Pearl Circle Tiara for her 18th birthday in January, according to Norwegian journalist Trond Norén Isaksen.
The tiara has been in the family for quite a while and was last worn by Princess Ragnhild, King Harald’s late sister, who relocated to Brazil with her family after marrying Erling Lorentzen. The tiara has stayed with her family since her death in 2012 and was reportedly inherited by her children.Embed from Getty Images
Princess Ragnhild’s children gave the tiara to their cousin for her milestone birthday, and it is thought she will make her tiara debut in the sparkler.
The Boucheron Pearl Circle Tiara features diamond circles interlocking and has large pearls at the front. It is set in platinum.
The tiara entered the Norwegian Royal Family in the early 1900s when Prince Carl of Sweden bought it for Princess Ingeborg (daughter of King Frederick VIII of Denmark) in Paris. Carl and Ingeborg were the parents of Crown Princess Märtha of Norway – making them the grandparents of King Harald. Princess Ragnhild, the eldest granddaughter, inherited the tiara and wore it frequently until her death.
It’s not known if Ingrid Alexandra received a tiara from her grandparents or parents for her birthday, but as she attends more events in the future, we will see her in more tiaras as the future Queen of Norway.
