Prince Manuel von Bayern is the eldest son of prince Leopold (Poldi) von Bayern and his wife princess Ursula (née Moehlenkamp), a very well known couple of the German gotha.

Manuel was born in 1972 in Starnberg (Germany) as Seine Königliche Hoheit Manuel Maria Alexander Leopold Jerg Prinz von Bayern.

He has two sisters : princess Maria del Pilar (° 1978) and princess Maria Felipa (°1981)

and a brother : prince Konstantin (°1986).

Manuel is the first one to get married.



Here are some older pics of Manuel with his family:

A bit more info on Manuel's family :

* Manuel's mother, princess Ursula isn't noble. Manuel was born out of wedlock (Manuel was born in 1972, the couple got married in 1977). The marriage was approved dynastic none the less.

* Prince 'Poldi' of Bavaria is a very well-known and popular man in Germany. He's also the godfather of prince Carl Philip of Sweden. The family of king Carl Gustav and prince Poldi are close friends.

* Princess Felipa (Manuel's sister) is studying in London.

* Princess Pilar (Manuel's other sister) is autistic.

Anna and Manuel have been an item for a couple of years now, so a marriage was to be expected. Here are some pics of them together.

Thank you Hannelore :)

prince Manuel has a degree in biology from Columbia University in the US.

Does someone know what Anna studied ?

About Manuel's sister Pilar - Are you sure she's autistic? I read somwhere that she had a heart failure because of the anasthetics when she was operated as a baby, and that's what made her disabled. Her parents took her to Florida for a special therapy with dolphins but without much result. She goes to a special school with a lot of outdoors activities and contact with nature.

Anna really does look a lot like Princess Alexandra and Princess Nathalie I think!

Can anyone tell me exactly how Anna's family is related to Prince Richard's family? Is her father Richard's brother?

http://genealogy.euweb.cz/sponheim/sponh10.html

Anna's grandfather (prince Ludwig Ferdinand °1910) was a brother of Natalie & Alexandra's grandfather (prince Gustav Albrecht °1907).


They look a little bit alike, but not much IMO.

Does anyone know why the couple are getting married in Stockholm? I know Anna's parents were married in Sweden (as the Countess is Swedish), but I expected the wedding to be Germany.

Summary of media buzz from Aftonbladet, Södermanlands Nyheter and Swedish Radio:

Today around 350 guests, among them the King and Queen of Sweden as well as many royals and nobles from around Europe, were expected to have attended the wedding between Prince Manuel of Bavaria and Princess Anna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein in the small villages of Stigtomta and Bärbo in the Södermanland County.

The wedding ceremony was scheduled to be held at 3 PM this afternoon in the small village church of Stigtomta, and the reception is now being held at the mansion of Nääs (owned by the Swedish noble family of Wachtmeister, family of the bride on the maternal side) in the village of Bärbo, to which the guests were transported by bus. They were wedded by the protestant priest Johan Dalman from Uppsala together with a catholic priest, since the bride and groom belong to different faiths.

Let’s hope for pictures soon!

Here are three pictures of the church, from Fotomarktplatz, one of the mansion of Nääs from Södermanlands Nyheter, and a map from the local parish (where you can see the location of the villages, the closest bigger town is Nyköping):

Here“s the link to the article from the local paper about the preparations for the wedding. Nothing special :)
Basicly the same things as in GrandDuchess summary above
http://www.sn.se/parser.php?sect1=10...2=157&id=85899

a fun fact: all people that are involved in the preparations has to wear caps with "Nääs 6/8 2005" (the location and date)

and here“s the first photos of the bride and groom (from fotomarktplatz)

Yes, it's at least the 4th or fifth time she wore this dress (also at German state visit, a dinner in Stockholm and other occasions I believe), well she's right it looks very pretty on her...
