Habsburg Veils

I don't know how I have become an expert on "Veils of the House of Habsburg", but following some extensive research (ie homework) here are some observations...

The veil worn by Archduchess Catherina appears to be the same as that worn by:
~ Archduchess Margherita (daughter of Archduke Joseph Arpad of the Palatine of Hungary Branch) when she married Count Benedikt Piatti in 1998;
~ Archduchess Walburga (daughter of the Archduke Otto, Head of the Imperial House) when she married Count Archibald Douglas of Sweden in 1992.

The veil worn by Baroness Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza at her 1993 wedding to the Archduke Karl, heir of the Habsburgs, was 200-years old but not the same.

There appears to be a variety of Habsburg heirloom veils as other Archduchesses have had different veils to that worn by Archduchess Catharina at their weddings. Apart from Francesca, the brides of Archdukes have tended to wear veils from their own families.

No more questions please Danielle.

Of course I have to answer! You asked, and I have a good filing system.
There's no point if all of this arcane information sits in a file unused, is there?

A gorgeous gown indeed!
I absolutely loved the fur details on the sleeves, as well as the lace veil. Just don't think that the strapless dress down the coat was very appropriate...

That lady is not Victoria de Borbón Dos Sicilias. On that wedding, she was dressed in orange.

The blue gown Catharina wore on her wedding ball was from Belgian designer Gerald Watelet.

What a beautiful dress. It was very well coordinated. I also love it strapless-uniform and beautiful!

She is such a pretty, sympathic woman, a pity that todays crownprinces let her of the hook so easily

I agree! I'm glad she's a close friend of Philippe & Mathilde of Belgium. She would've been a great princess for any country - and so pretty!

Can anyone answer this question for me please?

Is this the same Catherine who was the little flower girls at the wedding of Princess Alexandra of Kent and Angus Olylvy? She was a real scene stealer at the wedding.

She is a lovely looking woman. What a beautiful wedding and I loved her hair and the tiara style together.

Archduchess Catherina was born in 1972; Alex and Angus were married in 1963.

The Spanish press tried to match her with Prince Felipe, when she was studying in Madrid... Many people (including me, at the time) were willing to see that happen, but they were not soul mates, after all.

Anyway, both are very happy with their respective partners and that is what counts

I was actually having that rumour in mind, Elsa. In fact, I was looking forward to it as well (though Maria-Carolina of Parma and Tatiana of Liechtenstein were higher on my list )

Many princesses passed for Spain and belonged related to the Prince. The whole world wanted to marry him. The own Catharina was laughing recently at the topic, and was commenting that there was a moment in which the princesses were sharing flat and were joking with the matter.
The press that one bores very much and they have to invent news.:p :p

Thank you Warren.

I don't suppose by any chance you would know which little Archduchess was the flower girl.? She was a real cutie and I remember thinking at the time it seemed such a BIG title for such a LITTLE girl :)

Regards

Scott
