What a beautiful wedding. The Danish Royal Family still put on a wedding in the right royal style - tiara and all. Now these are the sort of thing we come to this forum to see! Queen Sofia did not have on a tiara but did not look any less regal.

I really liked Princess Nathalie - the bride's sister. She looked wonderful.

Princess Alexandra and Count Jefferson are a prime exaple how Nobility and royalty should behave and dress.
I wanted to ask why the Spanish royalty didn't wear tiaras? If Pss Alexandra isn't in the line to inherit, why did she have such a royal wedding? ie: prewedding gala and concert, the tiara turnout and all.

I must admit that I´m having a hard time understand this "civil marriage". I don´t remember anything about it and since Pss Alexandra is a danish citizen, she doesn´t need a civil ceremony for the marriage to be legal binding.

I think this the welcoming at the town hall, just like our CPC was received at the town hall of CPH before their wedding.

I don't think that Alexandra is a Danish citizen. According to Princess Nathalie's Wikipedia page ( Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg ), Nathalie took Danish citizenship in 1996. For Nathalie that makes sense, because the Danishe citizenship enables her to take part in the big dressage championships with the Danish team. (In Germany there are so many world class dressage riders, that it is much more difficult to get onto the national team). From this I guess that Alexandra is still a German citizen.

Pss Alexandra is a Danish citizen, She became that on the 19th May 1998 (as did Pss Nathalie), according to her Wikipedia page: http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prinses...tein-Berleburg

Thank you for this information which is new to me. Since she changed her citizenship so shortly before her wedding, there seems to be a connection.
Maybe she still wanted a civil ceremony at Berleburg, because she wanted to acknowledge her Berleburg heritage in that way?

So short before? It was over a year before So I still think that this "civil ceremony" wasn´t that, but a welcoming at the town hall of Gråsten.

That makes two of us! I don't remember anything about a civil ceremony either! BUT:
The only thing I can think of is Alexandra's membership of the Danish Evangelical-Lutheran church! Citizenship and membership of Church of Denmark do no walk hand-in-hand automatically! At least one of the bridal couple must be a member of Church of Denmark for a legally valid marriage!. There could be a hitch there, because Alexandra never was a resident of Denmark and she wasn't baptized in Denmark, as far as I remember! However I'm convinced that detail would have been 'taken
care of ' for a member of the extended royal family.
Or what???

According to the Wiki page you posted the became Danish on 19th May 1998 and married and 6th June 1998. That makes less than a month.

Ahh, that´s right, they got married in 1998. I mixed it up and remembered it as if they were married in 1999 Sorry, then it is short before, but I think that was due to the paperwork (there is a law about this from the government).

Viv, about the membership of the church... I think she is a member, since the priest, who married them, was from the danish church in Paris. But I don´t know for sure.

And I still think it´s weird that we are two danes, who can´t remember anything about a civil wedding the day before. But I can clearly remember the welcoming at the Town Hall of Gråsten. So I think that because they were at the Town Hall that people outside DK has concluded that it was due to a civil wedding, but in fact there wasn´t one.

Well, you're either baptized into the Church in Denmark OR if baptized abroad, you become a member if you register a such when moving to Denmark. If A was baptized in Denmark, she's considered a member!
