Princess Sibilla Showing Off Her Bling Bling **

My wishes have been fulfilled, not only was Princess Sibilla present for the evening event of the wedding of Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie of Prussia but also did she wear her very own Diamond Art Deco Tiara. As earlier today, she was again accompanied by the Hereditary Prince and Princess of Baden, Bernhard and Stephanie.

A little excursus: The Art Deco Tiara was given to Sibilla by her parents when she got married, alas, she didn't wear it on her wedding day as she chose not to wear a tiara. Interestingly, the tiara can be worn in two different settings; Princess Sibilla decided to wear the larger setting for the wedding of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway almost exactly ten years ago and the smaller one for the wedding of Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Count Jefferson of Pfeil and Klein-Ellguth, one wonders how those two fit their names into those tiny form checkboxes... But back to Sibilla: she is also wearing a Diamond and Ruby Necklace today that must be a favourite of hers as she often wears it for formal events she attends. It was given to her by her parents-in-law, Grand Duke Jean and the late Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte, on her wedding day.

Apparently, Princess Sibilla was not the only one of the extended Grand Ducal Family to attend the wedding festivities - Princess Maria-Anunciata and Princess Marie-Astrid of Liechtenstein were in Potsdam as well. A picture of the two Princesses can be found in the photo gallery of Marianne van Dam; another picture of the lovely sisters is available on Netty's Royalty Page.
