Lady Charlotte Wellesley and Alejandro Santo Domingo. May 28, 2016

Lady Charlotte Wellesley is the 9th Duke of Wellington's daughter. Her mother is princess Antonia of Prussia.

Alejandro Santo Domingo, the uncle of Tatiana Santo Domingo.

The couple are set to exchange vows in front of more than 200 high society family and friends at the Church of the Incarnation in Illora, near Granada, on Saturday. A reception is due to take place after the wedding at the Duke of Wellington’s nearby country estate.

The Duchess of Cornwall and King Juan Carlos arrived in Granada for rehearsals and a special dinner ahead of Saturday's service.

Forgive me for my silly question: Is Alejandro Santo Domingo the brother of the well-known Tatiana Santo Domingo?

The Dukes of Wellington hold a Spanish dukedom from the peninsular war days but I'm not sure if it's the same as a British dukedom in the peerage.

Looks like great weather for a wedding

These rich people know they enjoy attending weddings a lot. Don't they ever get tired of weddings?

Those weddings are also the best networking events. The Borromeos, the Casiraghis, the Wellingtons, the Marzottos, the Agnellis, the Prussians, the Grimaldis, the Santo Domingos, the Hannovers, us knows us. Often from weddings come another weddings, so maintaining this upper echelon in society.

Well, I do like social gatherings, but I would get tired of weddings. I guess it all make sense though.

That is Duque de Ciudad Rodrigo, Grande de España. The Duke has ceded that title to his eldest child and Heir, the Marquess of Douro. Now the eldest child of the Marquess is a girl, Lady Mae Wellesley, she will be the first to apply for the title Duquesa de Ciudad Rodrigo unless she makes no use of her right to petition and leaves that to her brother, Lord Arthur Wellesley, Earl of Mornington.

When Lady Mae will apply for the title Duquesa de Ciudad Rodrigo, Grande de España, it will leave the Wellington family, from "the Iron Duke", with whom it all started. A next Duque de Ciudad Rodrigo may well be Mr Smith next door, with this breaking the link of that title and the Wellingtons, victorious in the Battles of Ciudad Rodrigo and Waterloo.

It's interesting the dukedom of Wellington is inherited 'heirs male', meaning women are excluded but the Spanish dukedom goes to a female

Has the new Duke of Wellington also already ceded the Dukedom of Ciudad Rodrigo to his son? the late duke did that so the present Duke of Wellington was alreeady duke of Ciudad Rodrigo before he became Duke of Wellington.
Intersting also when the 6. Duke died in 1943 his daughter and only child Anne succeeded him as Duchess of Ciudad Rodrigo and his brother as Duke of Wellington etc. In 1949 Anne ceded the title Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo to her uncle so it was again united with the dukes of Wellington.

Because some years ago (i believe in 2005) the spanish Goverment passed a law that spanish noble Titles will be inherited by the oldest child regardless of gender. Because of this the new Duke of Medinaceli is the son of the late Duchess daughter which was her oldest child.

One should not forget that Spanish titles could always be inherited by daughters, in case they had no brothers. That is how the famous late Duchesses of Alba or Medinaceli inherited some of the most important Spanish titles. The change of the laws just changed from male preference primogeniture to equal primogeniture. So now the eldest child will inherit regardless of gender.

In case of the Wellingtons, there always was the possibility that the English and the Spanish titles would go to different persons.

But back to the wedding: Are there no pics of the bridal party? Seeing the bride is always the most interesting part of a wedding. I really hope that pictures will still come up.

With the addition that the heir(ess) has to petition for the title. When Lady Mae Wellesley does not petition the King of Spain about the vacant title Duque de Ciudad Rodrigo, the next in line (her brother) can still become the new Duke. Succession in Spain is not automatic, it needs a procedural handling first.
