Old royal wedding photos and sketches

Can we start a thread about weddings that are from long ago? Something like Queen Victoria or Empress Alix of Russia and going back. Let's post photos and sketches.

The Duchess of Albany, who married Prince Leopold I (Queen Victoria’s youngest son) in 1905. The Duchess’ gown harkened back to an earlier age and was nothing if it wasn’t sumptuous and in good taste. She wore a crown of jewels and flowers supporting her long tulle bridal veil, her shoulders were bare and her short sleeves adorned with jeweled symbols of royalty. Her bosom was swathed in tulle and ruched laces and was set off by a small bouquet of flowers. Her waist was tucked in neatly with a corset and her bodice was sharply V–ed to accentuate her good figure.

Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh (2nd son of Queen Victoria) and Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna (only daughter of Tsar Alexander II), 23 January 1874 at the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. Queen Victoria didn't attend the wedding as it took place so far away from home. Crown Prince Albert Edward (King Edward VII) represented his mother at the marriage proceedings. The couple made their public entry back to London on 12 March and were welcomed by Queen Victoria.

The wedding took place according to the Russian Orthodox rites.

The entry back into London, where the couple were cheered by the crowds. They were greeted by Queen Victoria.

Thanks pdas! Maria Alexandrovna is one of my favourite royals, such a funny woman and one of the few who wasnt to be bullied by anyone, not even Queen Victoria.

You are welcome, Marengo:)

Although, I can't say the same about Marie, I just somehow never liked her. According to me the woman was a major snob. If you want funny/eccentric, her daughter, Marie of Romania, definitely gets the cake.
