Hannelore, thank you for quoting Henri M's explanation of the Netherlands nobility (posting no. 62). I know how the British nobility 'works' but I also know that each country has evolved its own law and traditions. It is something I am very interested in.

Doña and Donna are formally an 'mrs' in English, but there is a difference in the use of these words in Spanish and Italian.

Usually a Mr and Mrs are:
Signor e Signora (Italian)
Señor y Señora (Spanish)

Slightly more formal are
Don e Donna (Italian)
Don y Doña (Spanish)

Donna Avogara dei Conti Azzoni Avogadro (the groom's mother) is best translated as: Lady Avogara from the Counts Azzoni Avogadro

Queen Paola was:
Donna Paola dei Principi Ruffo di Calabria and is best translated as: Lady Paola from the Princes Ruffo di Calabria

Queen Fabiola was:
Doña Fabiola de Mora y Aragón and is best translated as: Lady Fabiola (from the Marquesses and Counts) de Mora and Aragón.

Ms. Zorreguieta was never called Doña Máxima but always 'Señora Zorreguieta' in official documents. Her parents were Senor Zorreguieta and Señora Cerruti de Zorreguieta. Never Don Jorge or Doña María del Carmen. Princess Máxima's titles in Spanish are: Su Alteza Real la Princesa Máxima de los Países Bajos, Princesa de Orange-Nassau, Señora de Amsberg.
And that is correct indeed.
:)

Royaltywatcher, I agree with you on the importance of putting on sunscreen and I don't want to make this into a discussion about the benefits of our best star, the sun, but to clarify my point, I didn't mean to imply kids should be on the beach all day tanning like chocolate chip cookies. But all the same the sun IS our friend: we need outside daylight to get vitamine D. Especially kids should play outside for some time each day to get the minimal dosis of these vitamins. And no, that won't necessarily result in looking like a raisin, either.

Please don't get me wrong, I think Mathilde's kids are adorable and especially little Elizabeth looked like a character out of a painting with those lovely flowers in her hair, but again, these kids are paler than anyone else in these pictures, that was my only observation.

Hervé Thibaut de Maisières

[quote=Cathérine Bergeyck]Witnesses at the religious ceremony were: Count Charles-Henri d'Udekem d'Acoz, countess Honorine d’Ursel, marquis Edouardo Pallavicini, Prince Hugo von Liechtenstein, Hervé Thibaut de Maisières and Alexandra Olsufief.

Question : Is he a grandson of General-Major Gilbert Thibaut de Maisières who was Flag Lieutenant to the young Prince Albert and very appreciated by the royal family?

Is the place where they married the same Bastogne that was one of the towns under seige (not sure if that's the right term) during the Battle of the Bulge? The miniseries Band of Brothers featured a town called Bastogne, so I'm curious as to whether or not this is the same town?

The bride's father Count Patrick d'Udekem d'Acoz escorts his daughter bride Countess Elisabeth D'Udekem d'Acoz to her weddding with Margrave Alfonso Pallavicini at St. Pieter church. The 29-year-old Countess is the sister of Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium. The civil wedding took place on Thursday, July 20, 2006.
Bastonge, Belgium

Yes, it's the same town! Btw Mathilde's father was present at a commemoration of the battle of the Bulge in Bastogne last year.

This was no wedding in the Belgian royal family.

In essence it was a wedding in a foreign noble family with the the bride coming from the future King's family-in-law.

That the Duke and Duchess of Brabant (Philippe & Mathilde) did attend the wedding, was in the line of expectation. That Queen Fabiola, Prince Laurent and Princess Claire did attend the wedding as well, was a nice geste from them.

And of course the newlywed Marchioness Pallavicini simply is Aunt Elisabeth for Princess Elisabeth and Prince Gabriel, who acted as brideschildren.

Sisters are completely different

Crown Princess Mathilde and her sister seem opposite in their demeanor. Marchioness Pallavicini is so "earthy", whereas Crown Princess is a "blue blood out-and-out" in each her gesture.

I think I understand what you say. But I think the main reason is that being a Noble but not a Royal make brides to relax more and enjoy the weddings in a more natural way.

I thought Countess Elisabeth 'Udekem looked every inch a very happy bride and a fullfilled woman, and she didn't hesitate in showing in every smile and loving gesture towards her fiancé and husband.

Princess Mathilde also looks more shy than her sister, so it is natural that shy and calm woman make bluer princesses . But I agree with you Mathilde is the epithome of "blue blood out-and-out".

Thank you all for sharing the photos. It was a happy wedding, from the atmosphere one can get from pictures, of course.

Looks like the bride enjoys the outfits with that kind of neck. In a wedding that Katherine Bergeyck posted at Mathilde's Family thread she repeated the model, I think is suits her making her even taller and elegant. But what I loved most was her happy and fullfiled smile.

Regards,
mtbcm :)

Bless you, CAtherine!! We must be on the same train of thought today. I came to this thread earlier this morning hoping for more pictures since there were practically none in 'Hola', and 'Gala' magazine hasn't arrived at the bookstore for two weeks now! Love the pictures -- this was such a pretty wedding.

I think they are much classier than the Miller sisters proving that money cannot buy class. Another question -- is Edouardo Pallavicini married? I notice he is holding the hand of one of the bride children -- is that a child of his? Any ideas?
