Thanks for the pictures, Marengo!
They were such a beautiful couple!
Irene looked so much like her sister Beatrix back then!

IMO she was the prettiest bride we (the dutch) ever had. Sadly her family wasn t allowed to join her in Rome. They watched it at Castle Warmelo of Princess Armgard, but had trouble with the cable so the television went white halfway the ceremony. Must have ben difficult for Juliana & Bernhard.

The dress was by Balmain (or Balenciaga).

Because Carlos Hugo was a claimant to the spanish throne. Theoretically it could mean that a child of irene and Carlos could become King of Spain and The netherlands at the same time. Apart from that, the spanish goverment supported the claim of Don Juan-Carlos de Borbon, and not of this rival carlist line, so the Dutch goverment wanted to prevent a conflict with spain and decided not to allow the RF to attend Irene's wedding in Rome.

Before that Irene already caused a lot of controvercy by converting to catholisism, which also played a part in 'the night of Irene' , the engagement night. Angry protestants changed the names of Princess Irene schools, streets etc. while others aproved of her free choice.

Didn't know her dress got ripped!

By the way, Marengo, I'm totally with you, this bride was one of the DRF's best ever! (I also am really partial to both Juliana and Wilhelmina as brides)

just don't really understand what Irene saw in Carlos Hugo. Just don't get it. She was so gorgeous and interesting and must, just must have had an army of viable suitors, and she picks this guy? Was he really charming or something?

The fact that Prince Carlos Hugo is invited to and attends many House of Orange family events indicates he is in favour with Queen Beatrix, notwithstanding his formerly troublesome daughter.

Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma and her ex-husband Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn gave some notorious interviews to political magazine HP/de Tijd, in which they blamed the RF of just about anything that went wrong in their lives.

-
I think that the entire country at that time was wondering what Irene saw in that guy. She was every teenage boys idol at that time (or so I have been told by several babyboomers)

I like Juliana's dress best of all btw. On pictures it is ruined by the thick undergarments that Juliana had to wear underneath it, but in real life it is beautiful in its simplicity.

-
To Warren: most of all the Queen is thankful that Carlos-Hugo kept his mouth shut without being to difficult. They had to pay Jorge Guillermo aa rather high amount to keep him from writing a book about his life with Princess Christina and esp. with her family.

No, the couple divorced in 1981. Apparently because the Carlist dream fell apart and the two drifted further and further apart. I remember that in 1997 princess Irene still had difficulties being seen in public with her ex husband at the wedding of Prince Maurits and Marliene van den Broek (at least, that is what the news stations said), but later she must have gotten used to it and they found a way to get along well enough.
