I believe Princess Irene of The Netherlands was part of it too. Quite interesting when one realises that she later married a rival claimant to the Spanish throne.

Does anyone know if the Dowager Queen was forbidden from attending the wedding? it would have been lovely to see Victoria Eugenie there.

Nevermind. I just saw the photo. It's breathtaking how so many of Queen Victoria's granddaughters retained there beauty and regal carriage to the end of their days.

That sounds like something that would happen in a movie or a book! How did Sophia find out - was it in the newspapers or something? Were they injured in the accident?

She met him at the wedding and then a few years later they married in a Catholic ceremony without her parents' permission. Caused a huge uproar.

Sofia did have a hard time in Spain up until Franco's death. I think that at any second Franco could have changed his mind regarding the succession upon his death - she had to be cordial around the Duke of Cadiz and his wife, Franco's grandaughter. That marriage was a disaster and in the later years filled with much sorrow over the death of the Duke and his eldest son.

a nice photo...
and an accompanying article about the dowry (9.000.000 drachmas or 300.000 dollars) that, following Frederica's pressure, the Greek Parliament handed over Sofia and the scandal that arised ever since.
