Continental royal weddings, unlike British ones, seem to a case of bring the whole family along. The Norwegians are also related to the Luxembourgs through Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte who I think was 2nd cousin to King Harold.

I think it's all down to who's invited and who's schedual will allow them to attend. Until a few years ago, Prince Charles used to attend foreign royal weddings but now the Queen usually send the Earl & Countess of Wessex. The Kents and Gloucesters also go to these things. I don't see any official engagements schedualed for Edward & Sophie during October 20th, so I'm thinking they will attend. I was just stating that I think it's time for the Cambridges to establish a relationship with their young royal counterparts and attending Guillaume & Stephanie's wedding would've been great.
William and Catherine's wedding was a different ball game, with William not being heir it wasn't a state occasion and therefore there were more friends and family than royals.
Usually royal invites are addressed to the The Monarch, and they either go themselves or send someone to represent them. Charles has, I think, only ever Prince Felipe of Spains wedding in 2004.
On 20th October, a Saturday btw, nobody except The Duke of Kent are doing engagements so anyone could go.

Also- if you wish to add more to a previous post, you can add to it by editing it without creating a whole new post.

Charles also attended Willem-Alexander and Maxima's wedding in 2002 along with Edward and Sophie. But I believe those are the only 2 recent weddings he has attended, it was usually Edward sent. I think they perhaps sent him as he was young and maybe he could have found a nice Princess at the weddings!

I got it wrong, he's only attended Haakons and WAs and not Felipes. Thank you.

Did Charles attend Haakon's with the Wessex's too? That means he has attended 3, not bad for Charlie boy. I was looking up images to see if Charles was there and saw Edward and Sophie also went to Prince Constantijn & Larentien's wedding in 2001. They love a good wedding that pair!

I am sure it was 2004 that the Queen sent all her children to various weddings as there were so many taking place that year. Edward and Sophie went to Fred and Mary's, Charles was at Felipe and Letizia's and I am sure Andrew was sent somewhere too.

Anyway, back on topic. I am looking forward to this wedding!

will the wedding have the same dress code tradition as Prinsjesdag in The Netherlands? i think i saw long dresses and hats for Henri and Maria Teresa's wedding.
its quite a diferent and nice tradition, and if they follow it, i will not be surprised as the Luxembourg royal family came from the Dutch royals in the past. (hence many similiar traditions)

Does anyone know on what 'scale' this wedding will be. Will there be as many people as William's and Catherine's (1900 people) or on a smaller scale ,like CP Victoria's or CP Fred's?

Do you mean Edward was sent because he was young or Charles? Because the first CP wedding was Philippe of Belgium in 1999 and Edward was already married.

Charles went to Haakon's, Willem's and Felipe's, I can't find him in any pictures for Constantijn's wedding. I don't know if Andrew attended a wedding and I can't remember who else got married.

I will get back on topic too: Of course I'm very interested to see the guests but mainly the dress. I'm a sucker for a dress me.

By the looks of the pictures in the wedding thread, the guests wore hats, smart suits, dresses with matching coats for the ladies. No tiaras or long gowns.

They weren't that much smaller, but being a quiet country I doubt we're going to see a spectacle in Luxembourg.

Charles also attended the Wedding of Infanta Elena in 1995. Don't remember Andrew at a Wedding but he was the repesntative at the funeral of Grand Duchess Joséphine.Charlotte. And Anne at the Silver Wedding of Henri and Maria Teresa.

Elena isn't an heir though which was what I meant anyway.

I meant that Edward was sent to all the foreign weddings and birthdays etc. in the hope that perhaps he would settle down and meet someone. I was of course only jesting, as he was already with Sophie when he attended many of his foreign engagements at weddings and such.

I meant the Wessex's attend Constantijn's wedding, not Charles. It meant that Edward and Sophie went to two weddings in 2001 and again I was jesting at them loving a wedding. :)

Perhaps Andrew did not attend a wedding in 2004, but I am sure he has attended a foreign wedding. I also found it odd that Edward did not go Felipe's wedding as Felipe attended his wedding. I also found it odd that Edward did not go Joachim's wedding to Marie as Joachim attended Edward's wedding with Alexandra, and he is course godfather to Nikolai. Royal politics! Of course Edward may have just been busy for the aforementioned occasions, but it was odd.

I am looking forward to the bride's dress too, but I am also looking forward to the guest's outfits.

I think it is not mostly about the age who attends, but about who gets along with whom. And there the age could be a factor.
I´m sure we can expect Maxima/WA and Mathilde/Philippe there because he´s godfather to the children.

If you by "scale" mean the number of guests that are invited, that will depend on how many people can be seated in the Notre-Dame Cathedral of Luxembourg, and it's not the size of Westminster Abbey, it looks quite small for a cathedral: Notre-Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would think the dress code will be the same as for the wedding of William and Catherine, as both are pre-noon weddings, with knee-length skirts and hats for the ladies. Long dress and hats would only be suitable for weddings starting after noon (for example the wedding between king Carl Gustaf and Silvia Sommerlath).

I expect the whole Belgian Royal Family to show up, they are after all some of the closest relatives the groom has in the royal sphere

Maybe some of the kids would be in the bridal party? I wouldn't be surprised if Elisabeth or Louise are picked for it.

Moonmaiden, thanks for the more recent picture of Guillaume and Stephanie. I love her new smooth and tamed hair. She looks more mature since the death of her mother, more of a depth in her face. Of course I'm presuming the new photo was taken since her mother's death. I am glad to see she can smile. What a regal lady she is! Wow!

Stephanie looks beautiful but I'm not happy to notice she's looking very thin, can't blame her though :(
