Catholic Wedding

If they are catholics, does their wedding a regular catholic wedding? or do they have special catholic wedding rites intended for royals only?

Hi,

The Hapsburgs of Austria are Catholic and were the primier Catholic Family of Europe for centuries.
Most of the Holy Roman Emperors were Hapsburgs and crowned by The Pope....

The Bavarian Royal Family are Roman Catholic as are the Portuguese & the various French Royal Houses.

Reigning European Catholic royal families:
- Spain (House of Bourbon)
- Belgium (House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha)
- Luxembourg (male-line House of Bourbon-Parma since 1964)
- Monaco
- Liechtenstein

Non-reigning European Catholic royal families:
- France (House of Bourbon, House of Bonaparte)
- Portugal (House of Braganza)
- Italy (House of Savoy)
- Two Sicilies, Tuscany, Parma and Modena.
- Austria (House of Habsburg)
- Bavaria (House of Wittelsbach)
- Württemberg (House of Württemberg- the line that actually ruled were Protestants, but since the last king produced no heirs of his own, succession passed to the Catholic branch)
- Saxony (House of Wettin)
- a few other German houses. Note too that several royal houses have both Catholic and Protestant, some even Orthodox, branches.
- Irish royal families, who for most part are

Outside of Europe:
- Lesotho
- several African royal families, who are not rulers of independent countries, would also be Catholic
- numerous royal families of Flores, a few in West Timor and those of East Timor

A Royal wedding Mass might be longer and more elaborate than that of a non-Royal, but no.

There is no "special" Mass just for Cathoic Royals..both the Requiem and Nuptial Masses are essentially the same for everyone.

Also the Brazilian Imperial Family and the Princely House of Hohenzollern are Catholic.

Reigning Royals are for exapmle Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, where the King or Queen is still head of state. Non-Reigning are for Example the Greece royal family, as they are no longer reigning, or the French or Italian Royal Family

When their country is a monarchy, they are reigning royals. When their country is a republic, they are non-reigning royals.

What do you think yourself breath...?The Pope takes a day off from the Vatican to wed a Royal?RC is RC for everyone,also for Royals.But thank goodness times have changed and one is no longer obliged to marry another Catholic if love chooses a protestant,or a Hindu or any other denomination for all I care.It is of no consequence in the western hemisphere any longer.It is not of this age any longer.Thank God for that.

But if they want to marry in a Catholic Church with a non-Catholic, their kids must be christened Catholics.

No,not necessarily so.They can opt for the children to choose themselves once they grow older.A wise thing.Or,they can have the baptisms performed by both a minister and a priest,as has happened here as we have several of our protestant House who married Catholics.But then we here are advanced in the way we experience Faith and put it into practice.It is increasingly of this day and age,instead of medieval times

Agree,Princess Caroline who is RC married a Lutheran & their daughter,Princess Alexandra is being raised Lutheran.

The children of Prince & Princess Michael are Church of England.Princess Michael is Roman Catholic.

I'm not sure about the children of the Dutch Crown Princley Couple,The Crown Prince is Calvinist & The Crown Princess is Roman Catholic.

Yes, they must. You can read it in the Catechism :

1635 According to the law in force in the Latin Church, a mixed marriage needs for liceity the express permission of ecclesiastical authority.137 In case of disparity of cult an express dispensation from this impediment is required for the validity of the marriage.138 This permission or dispensation presupposes that both parties know and do not exclude the essential ends and properties of marriage; and furthermore that the Catholic party confirms the obligations, which have been made known to the non-Catholic party, of preserving his or her own faith and ensuring the baptism and education of the children in the Catholic Church.139

Source : Catechism of the Catholic Church - The sacrament of Matrimony

But it only applies to Catholics who marry in the Catholic Church. Princess Maxima and Princess Caroline (with Prince Ernst-August) didn't marry in the Catholic Church.

But since her mother was Brazilian, and she did live in Brazil as a child, it's not hard to imagine, that she's "half Catholic". But if you say that's not the case, I believe you.
