Did anyone else notice how she was looking adoringly at him and he looked like he could care less?

Yes!!! It looked like he was getting exasperated. At one point she tried to take his hand and he dropped it.

No dumb questions ...

I believe that I saw all of Margriet's children, and also Maria Carolina, Jaime and Carlos ... Definitely no Margarita, however.

To ask another question about the guests present today: The few royal guests in attendance today were not representing their own royal houses, but as personal friends of the family or the couple. King Harald of Norway is Johan Friso's godfather, hence his and Queen Sonja's apperance. But what is the extent of the relationship between Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath of Jordan and the Prince and Princess of Preslav with the Dutch royal family or this couple?

The al-Hassan&#39;s are close to the Dutch RF, while Frisso is probably close to Kyril and Rosario from London. Both he and Kyril work in banking & they&#39;re around the same age. Marlene may know more.

Shall we start taking bets on when this marriage will be over? I think they will have at least one kid. I wonder if JF will then get his rights reinstated?

Far be it for me to comment ... I&#39;m just posted because of the two preceding comments ...all the same .... concur, one kid .....

JF wouldn&#39;t be re-instated, but imo will become a senior statesman. He gets a certain independence this way.

What a horrible and mean idea&#33; To take bets on when someone&#39;s marriage will fail, and just barely 24 hours after they have gotten married.

And, Johan Friso would not have his succession rights reinstated if his marriage to Mabel were to be dissolved. Yesterday, when he married Mabel, he gave up his succession rights for good, irregardless of the longevity of the marriage.

Alexandria, thank you for the beautiful pictures. They are really lovely. I wonder if there aren&#39;t any pictures of Maurits and Marilene. Their daughter was bridesmaid and they were engaged with the guests of the church. I saw a glimpse of them on television. but I haven&#39;t seen any photos of the lovely couple.

Very nice wedding pictures.

HM Queen Beatrix I of the Netherlands hat is simply fantastic, very very stylish; very typical in HM.


I didn&#39;t realize that a hat that looks like a bird&#39;s nest was so fashionable?&#33; Call me crazy, but Queen Beatrix looks ridiculous&#33; As for Laurentian (sp?) there are no words :woot: &#33;
Actually style is subjective as is beauty and most things in the world. Helleniki has an opinion that differs from yours. Have your opinion and state reasons why you may dislike something, but don&#39;t ridicule someone elses&#39;s opinion. Such attacks will not get a favorable response. [/b][/quote]
Woah&#33; Excuse me but I was not ridiculing Hellenki&#39;s reponse; rather I was stating my opinion&#33; Is there a problem with me disagreeing with her? Did I sound as if I was being rude? No&#33; I wasn&#39;t at all nor was that my intent.

However, if you feel that was the way I came off...well that is your problem. Thanks for your rude remark and as a result I will no longer post here.

EDITED TO ADD:
That was not an attack (something to which you believe) against anyone. Give me a break. I&#39;d rather post at The Fashion Spot where people can freely state their opinion about the royals without being harassed. See you there.

Have a nice day

Jacqueline&#39;s remark wasn&#39;t rude. However, your attack on her just now was. If you no longer wish to post here, that is your choice.

Hassan Bin Talal and Sarvath El Hassan of Jordan


Is it just me or did Prince El Hassan and Princess Sarvath bring their children with them. Also, is the new Princess Rym Ali visible in the background?

I don&#39;t know if the people behind them are their children, but I definitely don&#39;t recognize any of them to be Rym.
Hassan and wife are accompanied by 2 of their daughters and their son. [/b][/quote]
And that&#39;s actually their third daughter at the back, the one who someone mistook for Rym Ibrahimi is PBadiya

I don&#39;t think the top of Mabel&#39;s dress was that bad, but that train was just terrible. I don&#39;t know what she was thinking. But, she has a lot to live up to with Maxima and Laurentein as her sisters-in-law. They are both very stylish.

I thought both Maxima and Laurentein looked absolutely beautiful. I can&#39;t believe Laurentein just had a baby&#33; She looks wonderful&#33;

I wish Johan Friso and Mabel many years of happiness. :flower:

I absolutely LOVE royal weddings, I think Mabel did look beautiful but maybe a few too many bows for my taste. Maxima looked amazing and Laurentein looked fantastic considering she has only just had a baby.
A wonderful wedding&#33;

Royal weddings are fun Although this particular wedding has been labeled as a B rated royal wedding in the press. There was an article today. Would you or anyone else like the link?

how small the wedding looks

26 APRIL 2004

Prince Johan Friso of the Netherlands married his fiancée, human rights campaigner Mabel Wisse Smit, on Saturday. By wedding Mabel without the approval of his country&#39;s government, Johan made the ultimate romantic gesture, because in doing so he gave up his right to the throne.

The civil ceremony at City Hall was performed by the Mayor of Delft, before the couple travelled to the Old Church for a religious wedding. In saying "I do", Johan Friso, who was third in line to the Dutch throne, accepted he would never be king. He retains the title Prince of Orange-Nassau while his new bride remains a commoner.

The newlyweds have had to overcome their share of obstacles in order to marry. Mabel&#39;s rumoured relationship with underworld boss Klaas Bruinsma provoked a national controversy early last year.

While she denies ever being romantically involved with Bruinsma, she and Johan have admitted to misleading the government during a prenuptial vetting process. This resulted in Johan Friso failing to win official approval for his choice of bride.

Past misunderstandings were forgotten on Saturday though when the prime minister joined King Harald of Norway and the rest of the Dutch royal family in celebrating the union.

You&#39;re very welcome konan.

There were not very many pictures of Maurits and Marilene despite Anna&#39;s participation in the wedding.

Here is one I posted earllier:

Maurits and Marilene [/b][/quote]
I would also like to add my thanks for the wonderful pictures. I was not able to see the wedding except for a brief glimpse on CNN. Despite all that has happened the wedding appeared have been a wonderful event. The bride was pretty and the groom was handsome :P Belated congratulations to them both&#33;

Well, I have to say I hated the dress. It would have been fine if the top half of the bodice was bows, and the skirt and the train were plain. It really looked terrible. But you have to admit you will remember it. Mabel did look beautiful though.
