Do you mean why the French branch is not posted seperately in the French forum? Because the family is originally Belgian and the French branch is very small (and young). So to give them their own thread in the French forum won't be all that practical.

I posted at French speaking forum Royauté the news of the wedding Ligne-Orsini (and I wrote to Paul Theroff) last october.
The bride gave an interview about the wedding saying it would take place in June 2009. But it was 7 months ago...apparently they changed their plans.
Links to the interviews (in Italian)
She´s very modest...she says her wedding is "only a chapter of her extremely beautiful life":

HH Prince Michel de Ligne has been recognized by the Spanish Government as Grandee of Spain on 28 April 2009.

I read this, and was also wondering what privileges this entailed. I highly doubt that he would exercise his right to enter a church with his horse; however, there must be some other interesting privileges that come with the Grandee designation.

My God...I have just read that Prince Pedro Luiz d'Orleans-Branganca aged 26 was among the 228 lost in the Air France crash a couple of weeks ago!

He was the cousin, as well as best friend and confidant, of Alex de Ligne.
They are on the cover of Point de Vue this week...she is so pretty and he was so handsome and kind looking.

Very sad and shocking!

Yes, it is both shocking and deeply sad. In case that you haven't come across it already, there is a thread devoted specifically to the death of Prince Pedro Luiz:

Is she from THE noble Italian Orsini family or is it just a coincidence?

She's Italian, she recently played the main character in a fiction in Italy (actually was berlusconi's tv...) called "il sangue e la rosa - the blood and the rose". From her surname you can image she's noble, but I don't know.

I've tried to find out more but I couldn't find any hint,
maybe Orsini also is a very common name in Italy.

She has her own page isabellaorsini.com, but no
real information about her background.

Here's a large gallery with pics from yesterday from belga.

It's not a very common name in Italy at all. It immediately reminds to something noble, probably she's noble, perharps an offshoot of the family. Anyway it's certanly an important family, 'cause Silvio Berlusconi is her godfather

she is NOT noble, there are NO links between her and the famous Orsini family. That's why in all the announcements in which the groom is called "prince" there's no mention of her title.
The links with Silvio Berlusconi confirm that. The Italian prime minister has never hanged around with aristocracy (the two only dinners he attended with roman aristocracy in the last 10 years are reported by the press as exceptional events).
And at the birth of Isabella, in the eighties I think, he wasn't still in politics and he was everywhere considered a newcomer: no aristocratic house of the time would have asked him to become the godfather of their daughter.
