A gala dinner was held at Christiansborg Palace for foreign dignitaries and select guest of honors of the queen. The event was a glittering moment not only because it was graced by some of the glittering people known in royal circuits but also because of the glittering jewels that sparkled and shimmered all through the event.

Perhaps, the top headturner of the event was Crown Princess Pavlos of Greece who wore a dark green velvet evening gown topped by an glittering diamond tiara that was once a possession of Queen Frederica. The piece passed through Princess Sophie of Prussia who was married to Crown Prince Constantine. The tiara was kept from public eye for over forty years. No one in the royal family has worn the fabled tiara since the death of Queen Frederica and speculations had it that it was even sold.
