Hummmm..she looks better than at the Danish christening, but her pants always seem too long to me.

Camilla was so pretty when she first married and now she isn't as attractive as she was. I hate it when women feel they should resort to plastic surgery or botox. The Duke appears to have gained quite a bit of weight over the years.

Who will pretend after him the dynastic rights (he has no sons)?

After him, the next in the line of succession is Prince Antonio, eldest son of the late Prince Gabriele (youngest son of the Count and Countess of Caserta, and great-uncle of Prince Charles); Prince Antoine is married to Duchess Elisabeth of Wurttemberg, and they have four children; the eldest, Prince Franz, is married to Countess Alexandra von Schönborn-Wiesentheid, with whom he had two children, a daughter, Princess Dorothée, and a son, Prince Antoine.
Antoine and Elisabeth's second son, Prince Gennaro, is unmarried and without issue.

The duke and the duchess could not go to the Royal Wedding in London because the duchess has been hospitalized in Monte Carlo.
Will e Kate: assenti i Borbone per motivi di salute
Anybody know further details? Hope that it's nothing too serious!

translation of the following please

Nella lista dei 1900 invitati a Londra pochissimi gli italiani: oltre ai Borbone, l'ambasciatore italiano a Londra, Alain Giorgio Economides, il marchese Vittorio Frescobaldi con la moglie la marchesa Bona, il conte Paolo Filo della Torre con la sua compagna Judith Warner, che e' lord Mayor of Westminster.
Is this confirming that the Frescobaldis attended the wedding? If correct, I would assume they were among the guests invited by the Prince of Wales who has a long-standing friendship with the family, and especially Bona.

"Our sources say that [the Castros] are very upset of not being able to go to the wedding at Westminster, something they cared a lot about, but because of Camilla's health they had to renounce.
In the 1900 guests list the Italian ones were very few: the Castros, the Italian ambassador to the UK Alain Giorgio Economides, marquess Vittorio Frescobaldi with his wife Bona, count Paolo Filo della Torre with his companion Judith Warner, who is Lord Mayor of Westminster."

So the articles states the Frescobaldi were invited, so one assumes they were there.

The Frescobaldis were invited and attended the wedding; they also have been asked by the mayor of Florence to invite William and Kate for a official visit to the city.

The magazine "Point de vue" (nr 3281) has the article regarding this event. The Duke has conferred the order of Francois I to Rachida Dati.
