Queen Marie Jose was a very beautiful woman. I think her youngest daughter, when she was very young, was most like her. They made a handsome couple, but for many reasons the marriage didn´t last.

Marengo, please correct me if I'm wrong,but isn't the present King of Belgium Albert II so would Marie-Jose's father have been King Albert I? Thank you and I love your threads on historical Royal Weddings.

Princess Marie Jose of Belgium has such charismatic beauty, her mesmerizing eyes especially. Haven't seen many pictures of this beauty and would certainly like to see more.

STEVEN, the pictures are no longer accessible.

The wedding date, in accordance with Prince Umberto's wish, coincided with the 57th birthday of Queen Elena, his mother.
He did not like that the sleeves on Marie José's wedding gown had been sewed on the wrong way.
The sleeves were removed. The Princess wore white long gloves.
