Princess Madeleine's favourite tiara, The Modern Fringe Tiara.
Its origins are unknown, but Queen Silvia started using it in late 1980s. It can be changed to a necklace as well, as seen during The Queen, Crown Princess Victoria and Madeleine's appearences with it in both forms.
The Modern Fringe Tiara is probably Princess Madeleine's favourite. She even wore it to two special royal weddings already: her own and at her elder brother, Carl Philip, and Princess Sofia's marriage in 2015.
