    • Apologies, that was somewhat unclear. According to my book on the Royal jewel collection, it is sometimes called the ‘wedding tiara’ because she posed for Winterhalter in it and her wedding dress. She did indeed wear a wreath of orange blossoms on her actual wedding day. Thanks for the clarification!
