Well, I wasn't sure whether Mathilde had grown up in Poland or Belgium in my previous post. So I thought that another option for them could've been a wedding in Poland. As I said in my first sentence, that was an old post of mine which was made before I was corrected about Mathilde being Belgian.

Wonderful news. Astrid and Lorenz look absolutely beside themselves happy, the whole family (families) does. Very nice looking couple, the moment I saw her I thought she reminded me of Astrid. And I barely recognized Queen Paola, that white hair threw me for a loop, although I will say that it is a beautiful color.

if you look at her left hand in this picture you can see a ring:

I believe her mother is the woman in the black suit.
I was wondering about the ring too, thanks for the photo, dbarn67. I hope we'll be able to get a close up, I would like to see what jewel it is. (Looks like a diamond from the photo, but I can't tell as it's quite far away.)

Congratulations to the very happy couple and their families. Another royal wedding this year; how exciting. I was wondering if Lili had a profession and was glad to see that the Hello article mentioned she's an arts and culture journalist for Bloomberg.

I'm quite sure the very catholic Astrid and Lorenz actually wished they didn't live together for so long without being married and are really relieved now

Was there a reason given for Queen Fabiola's absence? It is a pity she isn't there, esp. since her house Stuyvenberg should be 1 minute on foot from Astrid's villa Schonenberg.

I am sure She was inside as our former Cardinal Danneels who was invited too.
To morrow Holy Mass in the Church of Laeken for our deceased Royals. Will She attend ?

I was always fascinated by the non-reigning royals, the way they keep their traditions with so much honor and dignity, decades after the loss of their thrones. And Prince Amedeo is part non-reigning, as he's an Archduke of Austria-Este.[/QUOTE]



But not reckognized as such in Austria because they abolished all royal/ imperial and aristocratic titles after WWI. Titles like "Archduke" died (sadly) with the monarchy in 1918.
Even Austrias last emperor´s son Otto von Habsburg was simply referred to as "Otto Habsburg" in his homecountry.

3. Archduke Alexander of Austria, son of Archduke Carl-Christian and Archduchess Marie-Astrid, née Princess of Luxembourg, will turn 24 in September.
4. Prince Amedeo's own brother, Prince Joachim, turned 22 this past December.
5. His cousin Prince Sébastien of Luxembourg will turn 22 in April.

And of course there's Pierre Casiraghi, although he's not really a prince. Those are the ones that come to mind at the moment; there may be others I'm forgetting. So, you see, you may dry your tears!

Pierre C. is not "really not" a prince, he definitely isn´t!
No. 1 (sexy) unmarried prince for me is Prince Philippos of Greece!!!
Nr. 2 Carl Philip, still not engaged, of Sweden.

C'mon girls, there are some sexy Princes outside of Europe too.

Like Sheikh Hamdan:

Now, some South American treasures :

Eudes and Guy de Orleans e Bragança, they are not royals per se, but their father is a Prince.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

Sadly, Eudes is married and a father of two lovely twins.

And their first-cousin, Prince Rafael, who isn't sexy, but very cute.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.n...39375005_n.jpg

But he has a girlfriend, Talita Vaccaro:

Thanks for the crop of the ring. From what I can see, it looks like an older setting.

Prince Rafael is the complete opposite of cute.

But congrats to the couple. Kind of young but they're pretty religious? And she does kind of look like Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, which is always a compliment.

We'll have to agree on disagree, because I think His Royal Highness is very handsome young man, with those deep blue yes.


But this is not the right place for such a discussion. Prince Amedeo and his beautiful fiancé are the focus here.

I think the palace already announced she won't be there, I read that somewhere a few days ago. The dark winter weather sure isn't good for her health either. And I wonder if she retiered completly, I don't think she has the strength to attend National Day any longer but I hope to see her during the Queen Elisabeth Competition sessions.

No Mara, She was not to-day at the Mass for the Royal deceased and gave the presidency of the famous Queen Elisabeth Competition over to our actual Queen.
Sorry, but out of topic

It was a wise move to hand over the presidency, it's too exhausting and Mathilde is a worthy successor. But I still hope to see Fabiola and Mathilde next to each other there, perhaps at one of the shorter afternoon sessions or so.

To get back on topic: I hope Fabiola will be able to be part of Amedeo and Lili's wedding festivities, I'm sure it would mean a lot to her. I wonder if there will be a civil wedding in Brussels, would be nice.

It always strikes me how different people judge the looks of the Royals! Good-looks really seem to be in each individual´s eye...
I personally would never call Elisabetta "beautiful". She seems to be a very nice girl, pretty if you will. I think Amedeo looks much better than she, as far as you can compare the looks of a man and a woman.
I think he and his youngest sister are the pretty ones of the family.
Elisabetta, as well as the hereditary princess of Luxembourg are no rare beauties (like Pr. Felix´wife for instance), but they seemed to have found true love and might be regarded as very pretty by their (future) husbands and that´s what counts.
