I wonder how Irene got on with her formidable mother in law,Princess Madeleine de Bourbon-Busset,she sounds like an 'interesting' read!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Princess Irene's Gown

At first I thought this gown was boring, however I now think it's a very lovely wedding dress. Love the lace details on the top. Not one of my favorites but still, it's a very beautiful and elegant wedding gown.

It really was a beautifull wedding gown...and remained so even after it got ripped by the crowds upon leaving the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore on their way to an Audience with HH Pope Paul VI.

The lace was from the Royal House Collection and attributed to Queen Mother Emma,her great-grandmother.

In a six hour exchange at the Soestdijk Palace, Princess Irene and Prince Carlos Hugo made it plain that they expected a lavish Roman Catholic wedding in the Protestant Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam.
They wanted all members of Europe's royal families invited.
Queen Juliana would not sanction the wedding.

An Ard Ri, This statement came from A Dark History: The Kings & Queens of Europe written by Brenda Ralph Lewis.

I do not know where you get this information from (an old newspaper perhaps), but I fear that it is incorrect. Esp. the part about the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam, the last Orange-princess of the main line to marry away from The Hague was princess Amalia of Orange-Nassau, who married the hereditary margrave of Baden-Durlach in Leeuwarden (Frisia) in 1727. Beatrix was the first member of the family that got married in Amsterdam (in the Wester church, not the New church btw).

I've never heard that before,if they were to marry in Amsterdam my choice would be the Catholic Basilica of Saint Nicholas,which is the largest RC church in Amsterdam.

Wouldn't put too much trust in a book that is advertised with the phrase "beneath the splendor and sophistication of the monarchies of continental Europe are tales of scandal, mystery, and skullduggery."
Maybe you should start to add the source to all the little quotes you post on these forums, because imo it makes a world of difference were a quote originates from..
