About the extra number, read here (two last posts)

Caras is out on Wednesday so yes, I suppose the special number will be out there tomorrow. Hopefully, it will.

It would be rather a faux-pas of Dowager Duchess Claudine to invite D.Henrique's special friend to an event attended by TRH the Duke and Duchess of Bragança.

It is well known what BOTH think of the lady

Who was the special friend again? Lili Caneças, right?

I agree, the dowager duchess does not look her best, esp. the sleeveless dress at the pre-wedding event were not flattering her shape, which was very visible on the picture where she posed with the mother of CP, Princess Beatrice d' Orleans. Anyway, I suppose Claudine couldn't care less, her daughter is happily married, strengthening her stolen title and no Rosalinda in sight .

I don't see them together for a long time. I agree it would not be a smart idea to invite Isabel Nogueira to this wedding. Not only because D. Duarte dislike this friendship but also because she never was a friend of Claudine's family and she is not D. Henrique's official fiancée, but only a special friend.

No, Marengo. Lili is now the special friend of a very young man. I think Elsa and JSP are talking about Isabel Nogueira.

I loved this wedding and I love this couple but somehow I feel a bit sorry for Rosalinda. Maybe she could have been invited by Diana... but then again, she wouldn't accept the invitation I guess. In the last Hola magazine, Diana was asked "do you have brothers or sisters?" and she said "I have a sister, Alexandra". This means she doesnt consider Rosalinda and his half brother as her siblings :(

Anyway, this is a topic for another thread, sorry

I didn't recognise any Württemberg or Calabria relatives though.
So far I only saw Princess Chantal with her husband and one of her sons with the groom.
C. D'Euvreux smashing as always but Mmme Crepy must have ran out of fabric.....

The bride was beautiful. Beautiful pictures.

I have to say, I don't like the bride's choice of dress. It is VERY plain. I think the sleeve is an unflattering cut and length. I love the full veil. Very traditional.

Her eyes are so bright and expressive. You can really see the love and excitement. How old is she?

Well, the Duke and Duchess of Castro can be technically Charles and Camilla in English.

BTW, not really familiar with Portuguese royals. Who is Don Henrique's "special friend" and what is her story that would make the Duke and Duchess of Braganza dislike her?

Wow! lovely wedding - the gown was really very simple -- hard to tell in the photos but the elbow length sleeves on the "jacket" worn over the sleeveless
gown were not a flattering length. I wish there had been a bit of lace or something on the gown to make it more interesting.
Fabulous hairdo on the bride - she looks like a young woman with such a sparkling personality - her ball dress for Friday night was magnificent.
Did Carolina Herrera design the outfits for the children also?
Guests: Where was the rest of the Orleans side of the family? Where was the Duc d'Orleans? He is the TWIN brother of Charles Philippe's father, for crying out loud! And all of the sisters? Helene, Diane, Anne, etc.?
And the Duchess of Castro (Calabria?) - I think that her name is Camille -
Her gown Friday night was so ugly and the outfit which she wore to the wedding!!! Was she serious!!?? Unbelievably atrocious - what was she thinking?

I think her dress is timeless and elegant. Something that never goes out of fashion. She was a beautifull bride and i love that tiara.

That dress really aged her. She looked nice at the pre wedding ball.

I find strange that the official site of Prince Charles-Philippe doesnt present any picture or news of the Wedding...

I've talked to two friends and they think that Diana seems more in love than him. In fact, looking at the pictures, I dont see him so enthusiastic as she was, buy that's because he seems shy, IMO.

There are pics of them on the website and their engagement. Maybe the site just hasn't been updated yet.

I see love in his eyes from the pics. They look good together even though I wouldn't call them "beautiful" they are certainly handsome.

I didn't recognise any Württemberg or Calabria relatives though.
Added to them:
AD Josef and ADss Maria of Austria
AD Simeon and ADss Maria of Austria (nee Bourbon-Two-Sicilies)
The duke of Viseu
The duke of Coimbra
Don Luis Medina (brother of the Duke of Feria)
Axel Sambucy de Sorgue
Princesses Clothilde and Adelaide d'Orleans

According to manuel and Jose on the FIRMB:
Princess Cristina of the Two Sicilies and husband
The Duke and Duchess of Noto

No Wurttembergs, no Limburg-Stirums, no Aosta's, no Schonborns, none of the branch of Prince Jaques and Gersende (duke and duchess of Orleans) and none of the de la Marche branch either.

-
Now did anybody see a picture of Prince Francois d'Orleans, brother of Charles-Phillipe? I don't think I ever saw one actually.
