Duchess Jutta of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (Augusta Charlotte Jutta Alexandra Georgina Adophine; 24 January 1880 – 17 February 1946) was a member of the House of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and the consort of Crown Prince Danilo of Montenegro. When a married woman, she was known as Militza.
At the Coronation ceremony in London in 1911, Princess Militza of Montenegro, accompanied by her husband, the Hereditary Prince Danilo, wore a stunning white and gold brocade dress, adorned with diamond and pearl accessories. The couple walked in the procession of royal representatives and guests, following the Crown Prince of Italy and preceding the Heir Presumptive of Siam.
Prince Nicholas, the current ruler of Montenegro and self-proclaimed King, was born in a modest home in the ancestral village of the Montenegrin reigning family in 1841. He assumed the throne in 1860 after the murder of his uncle Danilo I, and during his fifty-year reign, he has been both a ruler and a father to his people. His leadership qualities are apparent in his interactions with visitors, who leave feeling confident in his abilities as a leader.
Prince Nicholas married Milena, and their children have formed important alliances through their marriages. Crown Prince Danilo Alexander is married to Princess Jutta (Militza) of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, a relative of Queen Mary, while Mirko married Natalie Constantinovitch, who could potentially claim the throne of Servia for their son. The marriage of Princess Helena to the King of Italy has been the most significant diplomatic support for Prince Nicholas, especially during the crisis between the Austrian Empire and Southern Slavs.
The remaining unmarried daughters of Prince Nicholas, Xenia and Vera, have yet to make alliances, while Princess Milica (Militza) Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro married the Grand Duke Peter of Russia, and Princess Stana (Anastasia) married the Grand Duke Nicholas. These marriages have had a significant impact on Montenegro’s relationships with Russia and its neighbors.
Montenegro is a small, constitutional state ruled by Prince Nicholas, who exercises almost absolute control over the country despite its modest size and population.

Mrs Ogden Mills extraordinary Boucheron Diamond and Pearl Tiara, Family Jewels of the Marchioness of Bute, her daughter. Worn by Lady James Crichton-Stuart, Sally Crocker Poole, in the year 1962. She was the wife of the 3rd son of the Marchioness of Bute.
