Letizia was wearing Queen María Cristina of Austria’s Pearl and Diamond tiara. Made by Francisco Marzo in 1886, the tiara is set in platinum and was a wedding gift to Queen Maria. Inspired by the Russian headdresses, the tiara came into the custody of Alfonso XIII then was passed on to the Countess of Barcelona, María de las Mercedes de Borbón.
