Elisabeth was born in 1977 and Alfonso in 1964, so the age difference between them is 13 years, just like between Mathilde and Philippe!

Probably not, there are so many nobles in Europe...I had never heard of him. And there's not much to find on the internt, apart from his job and that he apparently enjoys fishing grayling...

Some people have all the luck.
Congrats to the couple! I think it's wonderful that Mathilde's sister is getting married. :)

She looks like a nice girl -- I hope they will be very happy together. He does have quite a heritage! Wonder if he is artistic!?

Well Mathilde is way more beautiful than her sister and Phillippe is more handsome than Alfonso so I think that they are a match made in heaven; what's the thing between belgians and italians, I've heard a lot of marriages (royal and non-royal) amongst them

He may not be too small- he's 2 1/2 now and will probably be about three when they marry -- depending on when that is -- and I believe Elisabeth was a flower girl at Claire and Laurent's wedding and she was 2 1/2, I think. Plus, he seems to have such a sensitive little character, he'd probably do the job to perfection!

She was 1 1/2, too young to be a flower girl. But she was dressed like the flower girls.

I think we'll see a few photos of the wedding but nothing of the engagement. They're private persons after all.

here's more info on the Pallavincini's family palace and history (from the Benelux RMB)

"(...) [the palace] is leased to a firm that is in the banquet and reception business. Weddings, business receptions and commemorations are held there. Some in the family have apartments in the less opulent areas of the palace.
The Pallavicini appeared in Genoa in 1140 of unknown origin and are not related to the other family known as Pallavicino. There are many branches nowadays. The Roman princely line is very tenuously related as they obtained the name Pallavicini by royal decree after a bitter dispute with the other side of the Roman family, the Rospigliosi, for control of the the properties of the Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, chief among them the palazzo in the Quirinale with all its collections and treasures.
The Genose branches still own the magnificent palace in that city and there are others in Venice and Treviso. Affonso, who must be over 40, was born there.
Families of that antiquity and prestige are more proud of their permanence, service and traditions than they are of titles or styles."
