Speaking of Queen Beatrix, I have this month's Royals Magazine(France/Belgium) and it says that when Her Majesty made her State visit to Luxembourg on March20th, Guillaume and Stephanie were already secretly engaged.

I have always suspected that they became engaged either during his stint with the EU in Brusselsin Jan of this year or in February for Stephanie's birthday.

In fact, Stephanie was in Luxembourg with her future in-laws for the State visit, and Guillaume took advantage of the occasion to introduce her to the Queen. Gui and Stephanie told Queen Beatrix that they wanted Princess Ariane to be in their wedding, but Queen B said the matter would need to be taken up with W-A and Maxima because apparently the child has some health issues(problems de sante anterieurs according to the publication)

Does anyone here know what that means? Thanks

Finnish MTV3 quotes swedish Expressen's paper version article:

Ulrika Näsholm from the court press department told to Expressen, that in addition to Victoria and Daniel, more members of the swedish royal family may attend the wedding. Also Carl Philip and Madeleine are invited.
- If more members of the royal family will be present at the wedding, we will update the events to our calendar, said Näsholm.

And Expressen tells also that Estelle travels with her parents, they will fly via Copenhagen. Estelle will not be at the church but according to Expressen she will be near her mother.

Yes I do know what sante anterieurs means, and it's nothing serious but it could interfere with being in a wedding party, depending of course on how long the ceremony is, how much waiting around, how much excitement might set it off.

And what about the monegasque princely family? Will the princely couple attend? And P. Caroline? I remember back in 1987 the crown couple of Luxemburg attending Monaco Grand Prix and i got the impression that there was some degree of friendship between the two families...

Yes, it looks like there will be a very big royal turn out for this wedding.

Maria-Teresa and Henri attended Rainier's funeral, and Guillaume was present for all of Albert's enthronement celebrations. Guillaume was seated in the very front row for Albert and Charlene's wedding, in fact he can clearly be seen in video only feet away from Albert during the Mass.

Henri and MT were seated at the table of honor-the bride and groom's table-for the Gala dinner and ball the night of the wedding. Caroline was right next to Henri and I have seen photos of them chattering away.

In other words the two families are very close. I am 99.9% certain that Albert and Charlene will be at the wedding...as for Princess Caroline, I doubt it.

I suppose we will see pictures here on the Royal Forum. I would not know how to tune in to foreign television shows other than the major ones such as the BBC, which is on my Direct TV lineup. It is a contrast to the British royal wedding, where the attendants are known in advance. Some things kept close to the vest. I suppose Stephanie's sisters will be her attendants, and perhaps Princes Alexandra of Luxembourg.

I think the only adult female attendant might be Princess Alexandra, to help manage the bridal train.

But since Guillaume has several Royal godchildren including one of his two adorable nephews, and Stephanie has so many small nieces and nephews I would not be a bit surprised if the bridal party consisted mostly of small children.

I think Felix will be at the altar with Guillaume as his best man.

Mariel1: We watched all of Victoria and Daniel's wedding on SVT online. I'm hoping that perhaps that there will be a TV channel broadcasting that will be accessible online for this wedding, too. Naturally, I will be checking into the Royal Forums to see if anyone has info for us on that. I also have "bookmarked" in my Favorites many youtube clips from Victoria and Daniel's wonderful day, which I enjoy viewing again. So, if we don't get to see the wedding, surely there will be youtube clips. Hopefully...
In this world, where there is so much gloom, a beautiful royal wedding is so uplifting.

I am sure that you can follow online the wedding on the 20th October. Unfortunately you are get to know the most information about the evening just couple of days before the wedding.
I don't worry because I won't miss this wedding. Last year I wanted to watch online Princess Charlene and Prince Albert wedding. Unfortunately you can't see the civil ceremony on 1st July 2011 because only Monégasque chanel broadcasted the event. On 2nd July I was anxios I was going to miss religios ceremony as well. An hour before the wedding I found an online link , God's for heaven I could watch it.

I am certain they will attend it in return. Do you know other royal couple who will be present at the wedding?

I don't think, generally Countess Sophie and Prince Edward represent British royal family at royal weddings.

You're right but it seems odd the BRF hasn't announced it yet
