Oben im Bild die Hochzeitsgeschenk von Herzogin Marina von Kent, einer geborenen Prinzessin von Griechenland und Dänemark.
Sie trug das Brillant-Diadem das sie als Hochzeitsgeschenk der Bürger von London überreicht bekam, anlässlich ihrer Heirat mit dem Herzog von Kent im Jahr 1934 (ein ähnliches Diadem ihrer Grossmutter der Grossherzogin Wladimir, wurde ebenfalls als möglich erwähnt, kann jedoch nicht nachgewiesen werden)

Die sagenhaften Cambridge-Saphire gehörten auch zu den Hochzeitsgeschenken, Queen Mary schenkte diese ihrer Schwiegertochter. Der jetzige Herzog musste den Schmuck verkaufen um fällige Erbschaftssteuer zu zahlen.


Above jewels given to HRH Princess Marina of Greece & Denmark when she married HRH The Duke of Kent, they include the fabulous diamond and sapphire parure that was sadly broken when the present Duke sold the tiara for death duties.

That hugh and beautiful diamond bow brooch she received from her Mother as her wedding gift. It was orginally given to Grand Duchess Helen, daughter of Grand Duchess Wladimir, when she married Prince Nicholas of Greece.

The wedding of the Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece on 29 November 1934 was the most exciting and and glittering event of the decade. The bride and bridegroom are her seen at Buckinham Palace after the magnificent service in Westminster Abbey.

When Princess Marina of Greece became the bride of Prince George, Duke of Kent, in 1934, she indroduced a new elegance into the Royal Family.
Her gown was designed by Molyneux in silver French brocade, made in Lyons, woven with English roses of medieval design, ist was the sort of dress an englisch princess would have worn in the Middle Ages.The material for the dress was so delicate that it was only sent over to England about two weeks before the wedding.
The sleeves widened from shoulder to wrist, the cuffs faced with silver brocade.
The flowing, billowing white tulle veil was five feet long, widening at the bottom to ten feet. Holding this in place was a magnifiecent diamond tiara presented to Princess Marina by the Lord Mayor and the citizens of London. She wore two small bunches of orange blossom over each ear.
This grand head ornament was worn by the Duchess on many subsequent occasions, she loaned the tiara to her daughter, Princess Alexandra, for her own wedding in 1963 and Prince Michael inherited the piece on his mother`s death in 1968.
His bride, Baroness Marie Christine von Reibnitz, wore it at the wedding reception at the Schwarzenberg Palais in Vienna on 30 June 1978.
Princess Michael has since worn the tiara in true Russian Koskoshnik or cock`s comb style, against a black velvet halo edged by a diamond reviere of 36 stones, also a wedding present of her father-in-law King Georg V.
