Lili should be an only child and looking at her parents I don't think she has cousin (at least first cousins) young enough to be flower girls/page boys.

Oh oh, I envisage a couple of smart phones being sneeked of the pocket during the church service. Imagine a cheer going through the church during prayers. At least they are not playing against Italy.

I think that Italian time is the same as on the TRF, unless the forum adapts its time to every time zone? It's a pity we won't get live pictures. We will have to wait till the first pictures appear online.

Line of succession:

HRH Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, the Duchess of Brabant
HRH Prince Gabriel of Belgium
HRH Prince Emmanuel of Belgium
HRH Princess Eléonore of Belgium
HI&RH Archduchess Astrid of Austria-Este née Princess of Belgium
HI&RH Archduke Amedeo of Austria-Este, Prince of Belgium
HI&RH Archduchess Maria Laura of Austria-Este, Princess of Belgium
HI&RH Archduke Joachim of Austria-Este, Prince of Belgium
HI&RH Archduchess Luisa Maria of Austria-Este, Princess of Belgium
HI&RH Archduchess Letitia Maria of Austria-Este, Princess of Belgium
HRH Prince Laurent of Belgium
HRH Princess Louise of Belgium
HRH Prince Nicolas of Belgium
HRH Prince Aymeric of Belgium

Amedeo may be closer to the throne in terms of succession, but he is certainly not more important than Laurent. Amedeo does not carry out official duties for the Crown, whereas Laurent does. It is laughable to suggest that a grandson of the King is somehow more important than a son of the King.

Succession may place Amedeo closer to the throne, but that is it.

Her father's sister Marella Agnelli's great-grandchildren are the right age - John Elkann/Lavinia Borromeo's sons Leone (06) Oceano (07), Ginevra Elkann/Giovanni dei Gaetani dell’Aquila d’Aragona di Piedmonte's son Giacomo (09) and Maria Pahlen's daughter Anastasia Maevskiy (06). But they may not be that close.

exactly what I was thinking. And I'm even sure what the relationship between the two (Ettore and Marella) are since he's a not a legitimate son of Marella's father, Prince Carlo Caracciolo

Succession may place Amedeo closer to the throne, but that is it.
Prince Laurent was completely sidelined by his own father, sent away from the Court. When his eldest brother became King, Prince Laurent was asked to represent his brother once. That was it. Then the Prince got a burn out and he is still recovering from this.

In 2011, 2012 and 2013 Prince Laurent was almost "under custody". In the years before the number of independent activities (not the National Day, not The Deum, not weddings) was less than five in a whole year. For this Prince Laurent receives 213.000 Euro per year from the Belgian taxpayer.

The twitter account says that the guests walk over a straw carpet (sustainable and environment friendly?).

For sure the groom's paternal grandmother, the Archduchess Robert of Austria-Este née Princess Margarita di Savoia-Aosta. Probably also the groom's aunt the Princess Casimiro di Borbone-Due Sicilie née Princess Maria Christina di Savoia-Aosta. Both ladies are daughters of Amadeo II, Duke of Aosta and of Anne d'Orléans, Princess of France.

Lavinia is half sister to Beatrice Borromeo...hopefully she and Pierre will attend too

Did someone figure out the dress code for women? it's a bit awkward...

The Mysterious Heirs of Italian Prince Carlo Caracciolo | Vanity Fair

She inherited money in her uncle's will and in discussing the family fight over her uncle's estate she is also brought up:

’My grandfather bought Garavicchio in 1960 and left it to my father and my uncle, so everybody in the family was always welcome,” says Marellina Caracciolo Chia. “And even though it technically wasn’t [Aunt] Marella’s, my cousins Edoardo and Margherita came. And Ettore came—his daughter, Lili, had her baptism there. We all had a room there, and if you weren’t there, someone else would use your room. Even Carlo would allow his room to be used. It was pleasant, open, communal. And I must say, Jacaranda changed things very much. Because when she arrived with Fabio, suddenly it was, like, private rooms, private property. Edoardo was made to feel unwelcome. Margherita was made to feel unwelcome. I grew up in that house. I had a right to be in the house just as much as Jacaranda did.”
