At her sisters Wedding last year mot of their belgian relatives where present and from Luxemburg the Grand Duchess with Guillaume, Stephanie, Felix, Claire and other luxemburg Family members attended. And also the groom's Family is close to the luxemubrgian GDF his grandmother attended the funeral of Grand Duchess Joséphone-Charlotte and he attended the Wedding in 2012.

Si it is very likely that there will be several very prominent guests at the upcoming Wedding.

This Wedding ended with a divorce such as most of Prince Napoleon Children.

Wasn't the groom a nephew of Queen Paola?

The groom was indeed a nephew of Queen Paola's, Nicolò San Martino d'Agliè. He was the son of Paola's eldest sister Maria Cristina.

Here is a post with some further information about the genealogical connections between Prince Jean-Christophe Napoléon and Countess Olympia of Arco-Zinneberg, as well as a profile regarding the upbringing and education of the prince and countess.

How unfortunate, but pretty stupid to leave such a valuable piece in a car. These kind of thefts are rarely solved.

It's a big loss and sad to hear, though it was silly of Olympia to leave a ring of such value on display in the first place (heck, I'm even worried about leaving an old shopping bag on display, but I wouldn't have any 40 carat jewellery in my house let alone my car ). Hopefully she'll have learnt, unfortunately the hard way, to be more careful with her valuables.

I guess my grandparents were right to panic everytime anyone of us left something visible in the car...

The situation with the engagement ring is strange. It is hard to believe that Olympia would leave a piece of the heirloom jewellery in a car

I can't even imagine leaving a opal in the car let alone a ring of that value! What were they thinking? And on top of that her computer and identity papers. Am I the only one who thinks that the whole situation is strange? They are intelligent people and should know better. It's Paris not a small village!

Most likely scenarion would be that she was running errands and just left her bag in the car for a short period of time but short periods of time can be sufficient for someone to break into a car.

Not that long ago princess Astrid's bag was stolen from her car in Paris as well.

PrincessAstrid was in her car at the time I believe, not that that makes it worse or better. I guess we've probably all left things in our cars that others might think are risky/too valuable. When they are yours and you have them all day every day you get a little more relaxed with them.

Sadly there are a lot of jewelry thefts the latest time. I feel for Countess Olympia. Gosh. The scum whom took away her bag will not have believed their own eyes finding a 40 carat diamond in it.. I hope the Prince is insured. But the historic diamond will never return.

They recovered it and the guy who stole it is in custody. Apparently it only took him minutes which as bad as theft was is very impressive. Makes me wonder if he was targeting them in particular because if he wasn't and had been a little bit smarter he could've gotten away with so much. He picked a car and it was the mother load.
I just hope the Bonapartes learn to always keep an eagle's eye on their possessions and maybe put the ring in a safe?

I am happy the diamond has been recovered. But putting rings in a safe: you mean when it is not worn?

The Bourbon-Parmas had a fabulous diadem stolen while it was in depôt at a Notary in Paris. Sadly it was stolen as well. And we recently had a heist at the Ritz Hotel in Paris where millions worth of jewelry was stolen. And of course the heist of Ms Kardashian's jewels is also fresh in our memories. All three examples of thefts in which jewels were considered safe.

But I am happy that Countess Olympia can wear the sparkling diamond again.

Yes there is always a chance jewels will be stolen, even from safes, museums and often secure locations. But less of a chance then when you leave the ring in a bag in your car. Surely if she isn't wearing her ring, she will make sure it is some where with at least presumed security, more then a car.

True, but I was thinking more on the lines of a safe in their house or better yet hidden place in their house in a clever way. I wouldn't wear the ring. You'd be surprised the lengths people will go to to get a diamond ring much less a 40 carat one. Ladies have lost fingers or worse their lives. With more news exposure over the value of the ring more people will be inclined to look into them and what they can take. Lord I think about security too much
