It is really wonderful to hear that so many members of the family were able to attend! I didn't realize that Princess Christina liked to sing. What a lovely addition to the ceremony!

That's cool that Christina will be singing - rather unusual to have one of the parents involved in such a way, but I think it's nice. Lucien, you just mentioned members of the younger generation of Dutch royals. Are any of Christina's three sisters coming?

Yes I would expect one,but that isn't officially announced by the RH.
All her sisters have always been very protective of her,and with a reason ofcourse.Now,as she will also meet her ex for the first time since the divorce I expect at least one to be present to support her morally,if she needs that,or just for fun anyway.

Btw,Princess Christina also sang on both her parents funerals and during weddings of her cousins.

Thank you, Lucien! I didn't know that. She must be a very talented singer! It is nice to hear that Princess Christina will have her family around her during the potentially stressful situation of being around her ex. I hope that she is able to ignore any stress from that particular situation, and that she has a wonderful time with her beautiful family.

Other members present are TRH Prince Constantijn and Princess Maria Carolina.No pics yet,but sister of the groom Juliana promissed the media will get their moment.Photographer Patrick van Katwijk is besides making pictures also twittering but so far no pic there either but says the photo moment was a bit chaotic as in the wedding picture when at the end the bridal couple ended up with Princess Christina alone,without Jorge.

Patrick @ Royalblog.nl

http://gpdhome.typepad.com/photos/hu...eva/index.html


More photo's will follow on the above link.As the photo moment was at about 09.00PM local time,and that took
a while as the church in under restauration and you can't take nice pics with all the scaffolding,
it just took longer,as Patrick explains while twittering.The whole bunch of photographers and reporters
didn't make it back to the hotel till after midnight,and only then could all the work on the photos' start
so Patrick requests for some patience,but the photo's will come soon now.

Who's the woman in white in the picture? Is that the bride with her future mother-in-law? I remember his sister Juliana's "debut" at the Crillon Ball in 1998.
