Prince Konstantin of Bulgaria & Maria Garcia de la Rasilla 1994

Prince Konstantin-Assen married Maria Garcia de la Rasilla in 1994. Princess Maria was a lovely, lovely bride (rarely talked about). The lovely tiara she wears is the Diamond Ribbon Tiara....

Your welcome, Mandy. They really are a beautiful couple, aren't they?

I also really like Princess Maria's bouquet; very fresh!

I think this is not infanta Pilar. This is the queen-mother of Bulgaria. She is the mother of Simeon II. She is an Italian born princess who married the late King Boris III.

Yeah, that appears to be Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria, not Infanta Pilar.

In Bulgaria, we know her as Yoanna. I am not sure if this is the correct spelling.

Can I ask what "Yoanna" means in Bulgarian and why this term is used to refer to Prince Konstantin's wife?

Thanks for the pictures everyone; they are very lovely. Of all the women who have married into the Bulgarian royal family, I think Maria is the most beautiful. She has such beautiful bone structure and such radiant skin. (Miriam is my second favourite.)

I am assuming this wedding took place in Spain. Am I correct?

No, Victoria was talking about the woman in the pictures dressed in purple, who was mistaken for Infanta Pilar of Spain. It's actually Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria, and she was explaining that in Bulgaria HM is known as Queen Yoanna [which, I assume is the Bulgarian way of saying the Italian name Giovanna].

When princess Giovanna married king Boris III of Bulgaria, she became a queen of Bulgaria and she needed a Bulgarian name. I guess, she picked Yoanna, which is closed to her real name.

All sons of Simeon and Margarita got married in Spain. Only Kalina's wedding was in Bulgaria. Kalina has always been attracted to everything Bulgarian.

Thank you very much, Victoria1999 and Suturegeisha for the information regarding Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria. I have acknowledged my mistake and corrected it above.

Hi, pdas! :)
May I?

I came to this thread to post more pictures related to this lovely wedding and I saw that some information was missing. So if you don't mind I'd like to help...

At your first message here are some of the "???"

1. The lady besides King Simeon is Princess Kalina of Bulgaria.
2. Parents and sisters of the bride.
5. again Princess Kalina.

At your second message

2 - Dukes of Soria. Don Carlos Zurita, La Infanta Doña Margarita de Borbón and their sons Maria and Alfonso.
3 - Clotilde de Orleans and Edouard Crepy. (I am trying to find their marriage thread so I can post more pictures)
4 - Simoneta Gomez-Acebo (Juan Carlos' niece) and husband José Miguel Fernández-Sastrón.
6 - Arquiduchess Catalina de Habsburg, Princess Kalina and King Simeon.

Regards.

Why did Queen Sofia leave the church with King Simeon? I gather that King Juan Carlos wasn't there, but why didn't she leave with Prince Felipe as she arrived with him?
