Yes it is GD Jean and on his left his wife Josephine Charlotte .
What is funny is that Georgina de Liechtenstein who was the Princess of Liechtenstein stands higher than Beatrix , Jean and his wife who at that moment were only Crown Princes !

I think that Georgina is standing on a platform or something - was she one of the witnesses for the wedding?

No, the witnesses were King Pavlos of Greece, Duke Ludwig of Wurttemberg, Duke Carl of Wurttemberg and King Umberto II of Italy.

The Comte left his Wife and children in 1977 and then the marriage was judically separated and they where divorced inn 1984.He said he was pressured by his father in the marriage. Because of this he was disinherited by his father and given the lesser title Comte de Mortain. But around 1991 the reconciled and the late Comte de Paris gave Henri's second wife Micaela the Title Princesse de Joinville. His former daughter-in-law he had given the Title Duchess of Montpensier after the divorce. Not sure but i believe the marriage was never annulled by the Vatican.

Thanks, Stefan. I always got the sense that it was a dynastic match of young royals, probably encouraged by their parents. I also feel that about the Comte's sister Claude's marriage to the Duke of Aosta.

Does anybody know which tiara the bride is wearing. Is it the same one that was worn by her niece Dss Eleonore of Wüttemberg when she married Ct. Möritz von der Goess?
