And I love for them to make the decision they like the most for their wedding.

The picture I saw of Maria Teresa's wedding showed her going toward the altar with her mother a few paces behind her and her attendant, her sister, also a few paces behind. This must have been because her father was no longer living.
Stephanie can walk down the aisle alone with her attendants just behind her, her sisters or whoever will be the bridesmaids. Her father can be seated in the front row. I'll bet that's how it goes. Should be nice and wonderful. Looking forward to seeing pictures here on the Forum.

Maria Teresa's father was alive when she married Henri. Her father walked her down the aisle.

Gosh, this is all wrong!! The older woman walking behind Maria Teresa, along with her sister, is wearing a fur jacket and white hat. She is some kind of assistant who helped with the train. She is NOT Maria Teresa's mother, who was wearing a blue gown and did NOT go with MT to the altar. Maria Teresa's father WAS alive and escorted her down the aisle.

British Royal Representatives To Lux. Wedding

I agree that the Wessexes are likeliest to go.-- It would be great to see them AND Charles & Camilla attending, but that's probably not likely. (Although it would be a great show of British support.)
--Initially I did read that Will and Kate were going, but then I heard they definitely weren't.--

From what I heard, Queen Elizabeth gets along very well with the entire Grand Ducal Family. Henri and Maria-Teresa were just at one of her Jubilee parties a little while back.--All of the Royal families under-stand the complexities of scheduling. It's sometimes hard to send the heir or the high profile Will & Kate to certain events.

As one person suggested, it would be cool to send Harry to the wedding, but with the current scandal and with him being in the Mid-East, I think they're letting him stay out of the limelight for awhile.--

But just imagine if he did go, and drank too much, and ended up frolicking in his birthday suit with some French maiden in a Luxembourg fountain. I think that would make the press !!

And what would his Grandmother's reaction be to this if it happened ?--->

The tradition of the father of the bride walking his daughter to the altar is an Anglo-Saxon (maybe also Continental European) tradition, and as Mary Donaldson was from Australia, a country that has Anglo-Saxon traditions it was no surprise that she wanted to keep that tradition.

When it comes to the wedding between Sonja and Harald, yes, it was king Olav who walked her up the aisle, and I've seen a wedding picture of princess Ragnhild and king Olav walked her to the altar. King Olav's mother was British and that may be the reason they choose the Anglo-Saxon tradition. I don't remember how it was when Märtha Louise and Ari Behn got married, but at the wedding of Haakon and Mette-Marit the bride and groom walked up the aisle together.

In the case of Victoria and Daniel, there were a lot of discussions in Sweden in the media, among experts of protocol, and priests in the Swedish church when Victoria said that she wanted her father to walk up the aisle, because the Swedish tradition is that bride and groom walk up the aisle together. In the end the result was that the king walked Victoria halfway up the aisle, and Victoria and Daniel walked together the rest of the way up to the altar.

Martha Louise walked down the aisle with King Harald V. and Ari was accompanied by his bestmen.

Then it seems as Willem-Alexander and Máxima followed the family tradition.

Lindy, I misinterpreted the picture. I just saw the 3 women in the picture, Maria Teresa in front, her sister and the older woman behind. thanks for information. I was not a royal watcher in those days, only got interested more recently.

maybe. but Maxima is not dutch and i think the Argentine people does the Father/daughter aisle thing, so if the father of Maxima was actually allowed to go to her wedding, i wonder if she would still follow her husband's country tradition

Back to Guillaume and Stephanie, she has four older brothers, one of whom(Christian)is her godfather.

If her father cannot escort her into Notre-Dame Cathedral one of her brothers almost certainly will, imo.

Yes this is the tradition in the Netherlands. I'm not certain but i believe also Wilhelmina and Hendrik, Margriet and Pieter and Christina and Jorge walked together.
Only Princess Margriet's three oldest son died not follow this tradition only Floris and Aimee walked together from them.

In a book that I have from the Wedding of Henri & Maria Teresa, she is sitting behind the Grand Ducal Family and named in the book.
She is a Lady In Waiting; Mrs. Christian Calmes.
Her husband was Grand Marshall of Grand Duc JEAN From 1981-1984.
He wrote the book; JEAN, Grand-Duke of Luxembourg, A Sovereign and his Country, together with Raymond Reuter. Editions Luxnews 1986.

Stephanie had red hair as a baby! Shown in her baby pictures found on the links. She had the same pretty smile then as now. Her mother, if that was the Countess Alix holding her at the baptism, looked thin and tired, only three weeks after the birth.
