A tiara of crystals is still a tiara. Serena Linley wore a wooden one made by her husband.

Not owned by her,but loaned to advertise :P

I think she could afford a crystal tiara in all seriousness.

It's notable that in the chorus of those  who blamed Aurora in all sins there are few voices in support of her. I was surprised when I was reading in the correspondence of Sophia Demidova San-Donato (wife of Elim Demidov, half-brother of Aurora) nice words about Aurora. Sophia says that her sister-in-law was a kind-hearted and good person without any bad intentions but with just unlucky fate, "I always set her high" - the exact words of Demidova.

Well,if we speak about being a parent,it's not just about the mother,but about both parents...His father,Prince Arsen,left him in the care of his brother,while he spent time gambling in Paris...

In the biography of Prince Paul,he speaks about two meetings he had with his mother after she gave him away when he was a baby...One of them was when he was summoned to the dock where a ship stopped,a woman came out and held him firmly hugging for few minutes and soon left going back to the ship...it was the last time he saw his mother...

He was always telling his daughter,Princess Elizabeth that she inherited her character and restless spirit from her grandmother Aurora.

Actually that remark of him sounds strange as he never had a chance to know her closer, so his opinion on her was not exactly his but of those people who knew Aurora personally and possibly they were not objective.

Yes,probably from his aunt Moina,who,sort of adopted him and left almost everything to him...He spent a great deal of time with her,so no wonder where he could hear about his mother...

Also,it is interesting that he fondly remembers those few times he saw his mother...yet,at that moment he was still a child and he didn't know who "the woman" was...

I always wondered if he,or his descendants ever had any kind of contact with his half-sister Countess Aurora Helena di Noghera...after all,she was his closest blood kin and they were born only 5 years apart...

Marina looked a bit more like Wooley than Olga.

Villa "Montenegrina" or "Crnogorka" was given back to Prince Alexander and Princess Elizabeth as it was personal property of Princess Olga...Until recently,it served as a Montenegrian embassy in Belgrade...

Here is a video of giving keys to Princess Elizabeth,unfortunately,mostly in Serbian:

One can notice very formal and almost cold handshake of Princess Elizabeth and Crown Princess Katherine,unlike with other members with whom she shared hugs and kisses...

Tonight she gives her first formal reception in this house.

Meanwhile,the autobiography of Rick James came out.It's called "Glow".Rick claimed of having an affair with the Princess,but the Princess herself denied this in Serbian newspapers claiming she only met him twice 35 years ago,at a concert and at some reception where she attended with her daughter Christina,not Catherine...
