Not sure either... "aviation consultant" perhaps? Anyway, it's one of those jobs with airlines, where you earn lots of money... you know, like being in charge of Development, etc.

Man with the orange tie, between Kardam of Bulgaria and Eudes d'Orléans.

My guess is that it is Charles-Louis duke of Chartres, cousin of the groom ?
Since the lady walking with him is hidden, it is difficult to identify him...

Charles and Diana posed for Caras Magazine (n.676)

They didn't want to reveal where they spent their days together after the wedding. The couple says the honeymoon is not over yet, they just came back to Portugal to help Diana's mother on the preparation of the XIV edition of the Évora Clássica Festival (that happens every year in the Palace of Cadaval).

Can someone familiar with Evora tell me what is the temple behind them? The same columns were pictured in some of the wedding photos. Thank you in advance.

It is the Roman Temple of Evora. It is a symbol of Evora and it was classified as World Heritage site by Unesco.

It is often called Temple of Diana (Roman goddess). The temple was built in honour of Emperor Augustus in the 1st century AD. in the main public square (Forum) of Évora.

Thank you Regina very much. Looks like Evora should be a day trip from Lisbon. Seems like a very interesting place to visit. Thanks again

Évora

Évora is one of my favourite towns in Portugal.
It is about 1 1/2 hours from Lisbon by motorway.
Its historic center is quite well preserved and you can find many churches - the Cathedral where Charles-Philippe and Diana got married, and the famous Bones Chapel f.i. - and palaces.
Home of some of the best (and more expensive ) hotels such as Hotel da Cartucha or Pousada dos Lóios and restaurants - Fialho, Cozinha de Santo Humberto, A Tasquinha do Oliveira, Luar de Janeiro.
Try to go there on a market day at Rossio de São Braz for the local products and handicrafts.

Evora - Portugal - Alentejo - The City

Thank you JSP. I checked my schedule I will be in Lisbon on November 13, and I will make sure I travel to Evora.
This is a silly question but is Diana's Palace open to the public? It will be so nice to visit the Cathedral where the wedding took place. Hopefully I will see her someplace.
Are they living in Evora now??

Yes, the couple is living in Evora now.

I am not sure but I think only the first floor rooms can be visited by the public. You can admire family portraits, religious art and manuscripts. The palace is next-door to the Loios Convent and inside the palace yard there is a restaurant called Jardim do Paço

Thanks Regina........I am on my way.........They may even sell those wedding fans in the gift shop. They must have a gift shop if there is a restaurant.......That will be so grand......I love palaces, especially when the owners still occupy part of the structure.....

We don't appear to have a cross-reference to the wedding in this thread.
Here is the link to the Royal Weddings forum...

Diane de Cadaval and her husband attended the Jaeger dinner at the 65th filmfestival in Venice on August 31st. The Duchess wore earrings from Boucheron according to Point de Vue.

Look here for 5 photos.

They still look happy and in love and this is a good thing.

This "breats pushed up and out" mania started with models and hollywood celebrities some years ago and now even the royal ladies want to follow this "look at my breast!" obsession...

Yes, I agree they look very happy

Maybe this is just me but I look at Diana's pictures, I always think that Diane strongly resembles Francisca, Dª Isabel of Braganza daughter...
(I know I'm the only one who thinks this way... ).
