I didn't notice immediately but you're right! There is quite a resemblance between Cassius & Columbus and their uncle Nicholas when he was about their age- here are two photos of him as page at Charles & Diana's wedding photo 1 photo 2

Maybe I'm missing something here, but what's wrong with Paola's hair? It's covered by a veil and you can hardly see it. From what I see of her and the dress, she looks very pretty. The only 'problem' I have with the first photo is that not everyone is looking at the camera (I know it's hard for kids, but still). Anyway, I love mantilla veils and hers looks really nice. I hope there will be some more photos soon. Congratulations to the couple!

Bride looks a little bit like a bird's nest but nice to see the Duchess of Kent out and about and smiling. I thought she'd forgotten how.

Maybe it's nice dress, but there's smth in that which I don't like. Maybe it should has little longer train... Her hairdo still I think were terrible but the veil - nice. But maybe these are only not the best photos of the couple. That's only my opinion.

Her red dress was great.

I'm sure it was a very beautiful marriage. I do not consider her dress and hair that awful, she's a pretty woman who looks pretty normal in her wedding.
A marriage in Vatican is something very interesting

ps: her pre-wedding ball dress is gorgeous.

With her daughter too, now she's newly eligible...
No need to carry an Almanach de Gotha in one's handbag when there's an opportunity to meet them in the flesh.

If anyone is interested the current issue of Majesty magazine (with QEII on the cover) has pictures of the wedding. Some nice closeups of the bride and pics of Lady Helen and her boys.

Does anyone know what her royal connections are?

I recall the name "Frankopan" as a noble surname, from my computer game Crusader Kings, lol, and wonder if she is descended from a noble dynasty of that name.

The Frankopan family, also known as de Frangipanibus or Frangipane in Italian, was one of the most important families in Croatia. Their received the title of Count, than Prince of Veglia and during a period (ca 1400) they were rulers of almost all Croatia. I met in the uk a Princess Doimi de Frankopan, who probably is a relative of the future wife of Lord George, but I do not have more informations.
