Yes, there will be a recap (about 40 minutes) starting at 8:15 p.m. German time. I have also read that the recap will be available online afterwards

Why his mother? She is a born Countess of Castell-Rüdenhausen (originating from Franconia), daughter of a Countess zu Solms-Laubach (Hessian nobility, branch of the extended Solms family and originating from the Solms-Lich branch) .

His paternal grandmother though was Grand Duchess Kira Kirillovna of Russia, and daughter of Cyril Vladimirovich who assumed the headship of the house after the main line of the Romanovs were killed in 1918.

On TV they said, the most royal houses didn't attend because at the moment are holidays.
As a family member I would take a break of my holiday to come to a family wedding, but they also said, that royal families holidays are pretty much planned and there is no extra space for such events.

Not a fan of the wedding gown, but the tiara is all right. Thank you to all who provided the links and pictures.

A nice photo of local residents greeting the young couple.
The slogan is "Rule us please" in German.

One man doesn't seem to greet the couple.

Thank you. Do you have the link or is it the same one previously posted?

I was just going to mention that. I would hope he did that just for the camera and not when the couple came around.

They are not greeting the couple, these people are anti-monarchists who are demonstrating against the public fuzz which is made about the wedding. The slogan is meant to be satirical.

I love the tiara and the collar of the wedding gown (jacket) is very pretty, but I'm not liking the skirt. The folds at the waist just look bad.

The caption under the pic of the fallen horse said that the horse had been bitten by a horse fly and was trying to kick it off. Good that nothing dramatic happened.

Shouldn't the live stream have started again? I can't find a link

They look so deeply in love and happy. Though I love the sheer train with the antique lace veil secured to it, I'm not sure what to make of the gown as a whole. I don't like the jacket look of it. Not loving the tiara either...the larger one that was speculated on would've been my choice.
