These days those marriages are no longer 'arranged' in the strict sense of the word. But the noble families are very good a net-working and keeping in close contact. They make sure that their children attend balls, parties, weekend-trips and family gatherings where they get to know each other very well. So the chances that they are falling in love with other nobles is quite big.

Actually the interest in foreign reigning royals is much bigger than the interest in the old German families. The Thurn und Taxis might be an exception to this rule because Gloria was, and still is, such glamorous character. The lesser known noble families usually don't cause that much interest amoung the general public. But people always love beautiful weddings, don't they?

Normally the King and the Queen of the Belgians never attend a wedding of a belgian Noble Family.

I don't remember if King Albert II and Queen Paola attend Marie Christine of Habsbourg and Rodolphe de Limbourg Stirum 's wedding in Mechelen.

No show up from King Baudouin to France for the wedding of Hélène d' Orléans and Evrard de Limbourg Sturum athough Queen Frederica did attend.

Very nice pictures, Stefan!
So Prince Amedeo of Belgium and his wife Elisabetta were there as well. Also Prince Francois d'Orléans and his new wife Theresa von Einsiedel.

No they didn't. But Rodolphe and Marie Christine's wedding was attended, from the Belgian RF, by Queen Fabiola, the then Prince Philippe, Princess Astrid and Princess Maria Laura.

But they attended the wedding because Marie Christine is family, not because Rodolfe is a Belgian aristocrat.

It's great to see Archduchess Maria-Stella and Archduchess Katarina.

Strange that there seems to exist no photo of Marie-Christine, Rudolph and their sons. (Except of that one where Marie-Christine is probably seen from the back in some pink dress with stola)Not even in that one group-photo of the bridal couple with parents and Caroline´s siblings any appearance of Philippe´s brothers and sister....Rudolph is the grooms´ brother after all....

I wonder if Rex got the names wrong and called them 'Rudolf von Limburg and Marike Stine von Habsburg'. Though I didn't recognize them at first, it might be them. And really do not know about any AD 'Marike Stine'. Can someone enlighten me?

Stefanie, I think the group picture in front of the church only shows the parents, witnesses and page boys and girls. The groom has three siblings and the bride has four siblings, but they are not (all?) on this picture. I believe that they were not pictured with her family because they were, at that moment, probably standing together with his family.

I think the gropu pic before the Church was not a posed pic but simply nhow the Family and guests same out. It is certainly the bride's brother in the pics. And she has only 3 siblings still alive as her oldest sister died at the age of 10. If i remeber it right something with a fire.

Thank you for correcting me, Stefan. I'm sorry to hear that her sister has died so early.

But with all those children gathered on the picture, I believe that they might be grouped specially to take some pis. How else do you keep all those bubbling kids in one place?

Can you also enlighten me on 'Marike Stine von Habsburg'?

According to comments on Nettys website, Marike Stine is not the Archduchess .
""Rudolf von Limburg and Marike Stine von Habsburg" are actually Damiano Minozzi and Fanny Khevenhuller,"

Wow, so Rex agency was completetly off track (as was I).

But I still wonder who 'Marike Stine' is supposed to be? Maybe the agency meant to post pics of Marie Christine, but got the name wrong and then also posted the wrong picture? At least this theory would explain why there are no pics of the real Marie Christine.

I think that a mis spelling of the name is the most likely scenario indeed. Marike Stine seems an odd combination and I do not know of any Habsburg with such a name.

I didn't mean to say that MC and Rodolphe might have missed the wedding. Instead I was just astonished that they had not been on the pictures.

Thank you for posting the photos of MC and Rudolph. I already thought they would hide from the cameras at the wedding.
MC´s hairstyle IMO looks much better from the front than from the back.
