This is my favorite royal wedding! She looks so beautiful in her wedding coat & dress, walking through the snow with her father and wedding party!

Does anyone know who the little boys and girls are? Nieces/nephews of the bride and groom maybe?

A couple of photos, where one can see the dress underneath the coat.

I wondered though, as some of Archduke Otto's brothers (Robert and Carl-Ludwig?) opposed the marriage, did they all attend the weddiging? Were Carl-Christian and Marie-Astrid there for example?
It was reported at the time of the Wedding that none of the brothers of Otto
attended. Also no Carl Christian and Marie Astrid or Lorenz and Astrid.

All objected against a wedding with a mere baroness? Or they had other reasons to stay away. If it was the first one, the two youngest couple were a bit hypocritical indeed, as they had no problem to attend weddings of their own siblings(-in-law) to commoners.

The Belgian royal house requires only the consent of the monarch, so there is no issue of inequality in Belgium. If Philippe and Laurent had been Habsburgs, there would have been cause for Lorenz and Astrid to avoid the nuptials, but they aren't and Habsburg marriage requirements don't apply to them.

I have heard on another board that the main reason that so many relatives stayed away was not because Fransesca was a baroness but because of the reputation of Fransesca and her father. They were considered somewhat 'loose' I suppose.

The Thyssen bunch could hardly be considered straitlaced, with various marriages and divorces, lawsuits and adultery. It makes sense that many Habsburgs were concerned with her family being linked to theirs.
