What happy news! Congratulations to the prince, his fiancee and their families. By the way, is Prince Jean, Prince Jean Christophe by any chance? He is a very handsome young man...

It will be great to see a French royal wedding, I don't think that I have ever seen one, from memory. I wish the couple lots of happiness.

No, Prince Jean Christophe is a Bonaparte, of the former Imperial family of France while prince Jean, Duke of Vendome is an Orleans, a descendant from the last king of the French.

Only 3 months Jean's cousin Prince Charles-Philippe married Duchess Diana of Cadaval. But as the bride was from Portugal the Wedding took place there. And in 1999 Jean's brother Eudes married Marie-Liesse de Rohan-Chabot but the celebrations where scaled down because of the death of the late Comte de Paris (he died on the day of the cvil marriage).

The new duchesse de Vend˘me might be Philomena de Tornos.

That is to say, she is the lady who accompanied Jean to the Petit Trianon

I do not want to rain on anyone's parade but are we assuming they will marry because they showed up together at the Trianon??

Congratulations to the couple. I saw a picture of them at the auction at Christie's. She looks like a lovely lady. Good fortune to them!
