It's been confirmed that William and Catherine won't attend as they have prior engagements.

Thanks. Is there a reason the palace has confirmed it won't be W&C, yet made no announcement on who will attend?

I don't think so. It's usually the press who ask the Palace about the royals' attendance at events and given there's no press coverage so far of the Lux wedding in the British press, I think no-one's really asked the question other than with regards William and Kate's attendance. Having heard that they won't be there, that's pretty much the end of the British media's interest, even if Charles or Edward attend. Harsh but accurate I'm afraid.

There's no reason for it not to be in the future engagements list though. The Monaco wedding was listed a few weeks prior to the event, so if someone is being sent I would have thought it would have been up there by now.

I have read that the Prince and Princess of Asturias are confirmed as well.

In the case of Britain, maybe it hasn't been decided if it will be Charles/Camilla or Edward/Sophie and that's why there has been no confirmation. I cannot imagine that they will send absolutely no one as that could definitely be interpreted as a snub.

I am certain it will ultimately be the Wessexes.

I was surprised to read that Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik will be there, along with Fred and Mary!

Lumutqueen, apparently Princess Ariane of the Netherlands suffers from a serious and chronic lung disease. She has been hospitalized at least twice since she was born...the first time when she only 1 month old.

I love that orange or golden dress on Maxima, in your pictures, Marika. William-Alexander looked fit in that picture too, perhaps having lost weight or doing exercises with Prince Daniel? Very dashing couple. She should wear that golden dress everywhere.

Norwegian Royals: Harald, Sonja, Haakon, MM, ML and Ari.
Crown Prince Naruhito
Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel
Duarte Pio, Duke of Braganza, and his wife, Isabel

No confirmation from the BRF as of yet.
I guess it is a short list of the wedding guests.
I think
Belgian Royals: Princess Matilde and Crown Prince Philippe
Princely Family of Monaco: Princess Charlene and Prince Albert
Princely Family of Liechtenstein: Princess Sophie and Crown Prince Alois
Spanish Royals : Princess Letizia and Prince Felipe
and presidents of European States will attend the wedding.

I also have doubt that Arabian leaders and royal famielies won't participate at the event.
[Jordanian Royals: King Abdullah , Queen Rania or Prince Faisal (who often attends royal enthronements, funerals, weddings , and social engagements)
Royals from Dubai ( Sheikh Mohammad and his senior wife Princess Haya)
Royal from Morocco (Princess Lalla Salma)]

I didn't know that. The translation of the words from the article, was something different entirely.

If you mean santé antérieurs it would translate into earlier/previous health (condition/problems), which could mean a lung disease already known to the family and friends.

Yes I did mean that, MoonMaiden said the same thing. The translation that I received from a fellow TRF poster was different. Thank you anyway though.

why only Mathilde and Phillippe? the belgian royals are the closest in blood ties with Luxembourg, even Stephanie is a Belgian and her family has known Mathilde's and Belgian royal's long before they started dating.
im sure the Belgian royal family will be all there, and there are even rumours that the young royals, ex: Princess Elisabeth would come too, not to mention that Prince Emmanuel is Guillaume's godchild.
i guess you didnt know they were related this much

Strange too , King Baudouin attended all his Nephew’s weddings .
If all the Crown Princes attend I hope we will see the Prince of Wales.

I find it very difficult to believe the the entire Belgian royal family won't turn out en force.

Thanks Stefan.

That's an odd statement...I am sure I remember confirmation beforehand that Philippe and Mathilde were attending the William/Kate nuptials in 2011.

Anyway I agree that pretty much the entire Belgian RF will be there, including at least some of the children of Astrid and Lorenz and perhaps even Queen Fabiola.

They are closely related by blood and are considered as family.

I also think they will be there. But why not confirm it. The dutch RF also don't add it to the agenda on their official Website but they have confirmed who will attend.

Sorry I don't give the full list of members of Belgian royal family.
I just mention two names ( Princess Matilde and Prince Philippe). I am sure the will attend the wedding. It is possible that whole royal family take part in the event ( Stephanie de Lennoy come from Belgian noble family, it is true that her family has an old history and it is well known in Belgium, unfortunately I haven't heard about her or her family before the engagement).
It is true by the way Stephanie and Crown Prince are related much closer to the Belgian royal families than the others.

There might be some coverage if it is Charles and Camilla, though.

(But I agree the British media isn't much interested in the Wessexes. That's is who I expect to represent the BRF. Just because they are the ones who are usually sent).
