There is one article written on Sybilla on Royalty Digest (the old one). Quite informative. You can write to buy back issues.

Royalty Digest also did a 2 part story on Charles Edward himself. 'Poor Charlie' I think was the title, or something similar.

Very regal photo of Viktoria Adelheid:



Does anybody know which tiara is she wearing?

I don't. The turquoise & diamond is the one she's usually pictured wearing and is still in the family. This photo was not too long after their wedding so perhaps it was a wedding gift from either the groom or her family?

It could perhaps be loaned from the previous Duchess, Marie:

The tiara could be the same but I can't see that Marie would have given it to Victoria Adelheid and it wasn't part of a 'Coburg collection' to go from Duchess to Duchess. Perhaps she loaned it and that's why there are few photos of VA wearing it?

Thank you for your answer GDElla...To me,the tiara does look similar indeed,but I am not sure that it is the same one...if one takes a closer look,they are different.At least I think ;)
