July 22, 1896 – Wedding of Princess Maud of Wales and Prince Carl of Denmark

' Sat out for a short while & then went in to dress, going downstairs at ½ p. 12, to the Bow Room, where all the family were assembled. I wore a black satin dress with embroideries & jet, a lace veil of old point, & diamond diadem & ornaments. After a few minutes, I was rolled through the Hall, Dining room, &c, to the vestibule of the Chapel, Christle & little Arthur going with me.
The Chapel was very prettily decorated with wreaths of red & white roses twined round the pillars. Above the altar was a large cross of white roses, & palms & white flowers on either side. All the Princes & Princesses bowed to me as they came in preceded by Heralds, &c. Dear Alix, looking so young & lovely in a pale grey dress & many diamonds came in last with her brother Freddy. She sat on my left, & Freddy & Louise of Denmark on my right. Next came the Bridegroom, in Danish naval uniform supported by his brothers Christian & Harold, & very soon after followed the dear Bride, led by Bertie & supported by Georgie. She had 8 Bridesmaids: Victoria, Ingeborg & Thyra of Denmark, Thora, Daisy & Patsy, Alice, & little Alix Duff.
Dear Maud looked very pretty in her white satin dress with a very long train bordered with orange blossoms,on her head, her mother’s wedding veil, & a wreath of orange blossoms. The Arch Bishop of Canterbury performed the ceremony, assisted by the Bishops of London & Winchester, other Clergy being also present. The Arch Bishop delivered a short & good address. After the Benediction, Maud came forward to her Parents & then to Me & I kissed both her & the Bridegroom. The Processions reformed in reverse order, & passed to the sounds of Mendelssohn’s Wedding March, as in coming, through the covered Gallery which had been arranged on the Terrace. I returned privately as I came & rejoined all the family in the 44 Room, where the Register was signed. ‘      Queen Victoria

Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara

Owned by Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna (aka Grand Duchess Vladimir) until her death in 1920, the tiara was sold by her daughter Princess Nicholas of Greece to Queen Mary. Mary wore it for several portraits before dying in 1953 and passing it onto Queen Elizabeth II.

The tiara has three settings: Emeralds, Pearls, or none at all. Elizabeth has worn all three settings on many occasions in her long reign.
