The sheen on her gown makes me think it must have been a silk dream. Gorgeous, although a bit high-necked for me. I love the way it looked with the veil and diadem.

Question: why he married her?
There was no other candidates for King's daughter-in-law?

Well, she was the daughter of an Infante of Spain and a French Princess, so she came from an excellent family; and maybe, - but this is only a speculation of mine - considering the previous marriages of his two brothers to a commoner and a noblewoman, whichever Royal woman could have been a good match...

what more interesting is the fact that the brides father was at sometime an uncle by marriage to the bridegroom......for prince carlos of the two siciles, infant of spain had married in 1901, princess maria de las mercedes, the eldest daughter of king alfonso XII of spain !!.

yes the king was present.......as the footage adove shows.....but the thought has just occurred to me : where is the brides father, as it appears that the king had given the bride away to his own son !!. but i may be wrong here ?.....

Yes, you're right SLV; while King Juan Carlos rather resembles his mother...

I fear this is a problem for most of the brides and grooms on the day of their weddings...
