They got married in Brussels on the 2nd of July 1959.

From Fotomarktplatz:

. Albert and Paola before the altar
2. Official portrait with the close family
3. Official photo of Albert and Paola
4. During the religious ceremony
5. In the car, waving (I know it's a distant picture, but here Paola reminds me of Mathilde on her wedding day).

Paola's beautiful lace veil is an ancient family piece. It was first worn by her grandmother, Laura Mosselman du Chenoy, a Belgian (!) aristocrat. After Paola, it was also used by Astrid, Mathilde and Claire on their wedding day.

3. Princess Lilian, prince Albert, princess Paola, countess Luisa Gazelli (Paola's mother), Leopold III, princess Marie-Christine.

As you can see, Paola didn't wear a tiara, she wore flowers in her hair.

Thanks for all these great pictures Cathérine! (And to Chris, too!)

I especially love the picture of Paola at the top of this page. Paola looks so young and fresh and beautiful beyond words!

I had no idea that was Queen Paola's veil. It is beautiful and it must be very well cared for. It still looks lovely after 45 years. Thanks for those wonderful pictures! More! More!

Actually it's a lot older than 45 years :)

It's an 19th century veil.
