Both the groom and the bride graduated in medicine; Pablo works as a plastic surgeon, while Maria Elisabeth is a pediatrician.

As for Princess Lelli, I guess she is Maria Teresa's twin sister, Princess Maria Gabriela.

I never knew that they were identical twins. So whenever I saw one of them I identified her as the wife of Jan Hessel de Jong (MT). But it is more logical indeed that Leli is a nickname used for Maria-Gabriela indeed. Thanks!

It is also interesting to point out that they are also both descendants of the Kings of Great Britain and Prussia...

This will probably be one of the nicest Brazilian Imperial weddings we've seen as it will be in Petropolis Cathedral (Duarte Nuno & Maria Francisca Duke & Duchess of Braganca were married here) and she belongs to the branch of the family that still owns a place, the Grao Para Palace.

The Grão Pará Palace (CASA DOS SEMANRIOS II (PALCIO GRO-PAR) - ANTIQUUS - Terra Fotolog) is located just behind the Museu Imperial de Petrópolis, the old summer palace of D. Pedro II (only a garden separeted them then, now there is also a street). (Museu Imperial)
It was called then Hospederia dos Semanários da Corte, where the families of coutriers lived when in service of the Emperor. The Cathedral () is just one or two blocks away from the Museum and is the resting place of Emperor D. Pedro II, Empress Thereza Chistina, Princess Isabel and Count D'Eu and the Prince of Grão-Pará). Those buildings are not luxurious but are very charming. I have found those links on Internet so they are not the best but I will look for the photos I took in Petropolis and I will post them, along with some more information on the thread about historical royal places as soon as I can. Actually, Princess Paola's mother moved from London to the Grão Pará Palace when she got divorced.
