10 of the most beautiful crowns from the Scandinavian royals

While it's normal to see daily headlines about the British royal family (hi Kate and Will!), there is another royal bunch that we love keeping up with: the Scandinavian royals.

From sweet family antics to families moving their brood stateside, it can be hard to keep track of everyone belonging to these royal houses. (Luckily for us, Expedia has whipped up an interactive family tree, so connecting the dots between the families is easier than ever.)

The Scandinavian royal houses -- Denmark, Norway and Sweden -- have always been closely connected through different marriages, which means that all of the fabulous crowns and tiaras that the queens and princesses get to wear have changed hands and homes over the years. 

From Princess Madeline's aquamarine stunner to Princess Marie's floral diamond tiara and Queen Sonja's emerald dazzler, we are head over heels for all of the stunning crowns and tiaras these lucky ladies get to wear from time to time. See 10 of the most fabulous headpieces in the gallery above!
