Dutch Royal Invasion of NYC for Bernardo Guillermo’s Wedding
New York City was invaded by the Oranje-Nassaus over the weekend for the wedding of Bernardo Guillermo and Eva Prinz-Valdes. Many members of the younger generation of the Dutch Royal Family arrived in New York late last week for the religious wedding ceremony which took place on Saturday September 5th.
Bernardo and Eva married at the Our Lady of All Saints Church in Brooklyn on Saturday evening, with their five month old daughter Isabel christened during the wedding mass, performed by a Dutch priest. The groom’s mother, Princess Christina, sang during the ceremony, as she did for both her parents’ funerals.
Eva and her bridesmaids, including Bernardo’s sister Juliana, arrived at the church themselves, crossing a Brooklyn street before entering the church.
The Dutch Royal Family was well represented, with children from each of Princess Christina’s three sisters present to witness their first cousin’s marriage. The groom’s Orange-Nassau cousins the Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima, Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien were there, as were the Van Vollenhoven delegation of Prince Maurits and Princess Marilène (it is also believed that Prince Floris, Princess Aimée and Princess Annette attended). The Bourbon-Parma relatives were represented by Princess Margarita and Tjalling ten Cate, Prince Jamie and Princess Maria Carolina.
With Bernardo and Eva’s civil wedding ceremony taking place in March, their religious wedding ceremony was the first public meeting of Princess Christina and her ex-husband, Jorge Guillermo, since their divorce. The pair has seemingly agreed a new era has began with the birth of their first grandchild back in April.
