20th Wedding Anniversary of Prince Kyrill and Rosario Nadal
Kyrill, Prince of Preslav married Doña Maria del Rosario Nadal in Palma de Mallorca on September 15, 1989. The wedding took place in Almudania’s Saint Anne Chapel: some 400 guests were invited to the wedding but only 125 could be present during the religious ceremony because of the Chapel’s small size. The guests included the entire Bulgarian Royal Family, the King and Queen of Spain, Infantas Elena and Cristina, the Prince of Asturias, who was one of the witnesses, as well as other royals and nobles from around the world.
The bride wore a heavy silk wedding gown designed by Gustavo Puente, which featured delicate embroidery and a 3-meter long veil. Rosario wore one of the heirlooms of the Bulgarian Royal Family, the Floral Diamond Tiara, which had been a gift of Prince Ferdinand to his bride, Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon Parma. Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria, King Simeon’s mother, wore the tiara for her own wedding. The bride’s look was finished by matching diamond earrings – a present from King Simeon and Doña Margarita.
Upon the marriage, Rosario assumed her husband’s titles and became HRH Princess Rosario of Bulgaria, Princess of Preslav. Kyrill and Rosario have 3 children: Princess Mafalda-Cecilia Preslavska of Bulgaria (born in 1994), Princess Olimpia Preslavska of Bulgaria (born in 1995) and Prince Tassilo Preslavski of Bulgaria (born in 2002).
Prince Kyrill is the second son of Tsar Simeon II and Doña Margarita: although he was born after his father lost the throne, he is styled as a Royal Prince by courtesy. He graduated Princeton University with a degree in Physics in just 3 years and for some time read the subject at Princeton. He now works in banking sector in London, where the family resides most of the time. Princess Rosario is the daughter of Miguel Nadal i Bestard and Isabel Fuster de Puigdorfila i Villalonga. She is directly descended from Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II. Before her marriage to Kyrill, she used to be a model and was the face of Valentino for many years. Rosario is a Professor of the History of Art and occasionally gives readings on the subject.
The family owes a property in Majorca, where they spend their holidays. During the summer holidays, they can be occasionally seen with members of the Spanish Royal Family: the two Royal Houses appear to have very close relationships.
