Prince Charles-Philippe d'Orleans, Duke of Anjou, and Diana Alvares Pereira de Melo, 11th Duchess of Cadaval, are married in the Cathedral of Evora, Portugal, on 21 June 2008.

The thread about their engagement may be found here in the French Royalty forum.

Marengo 06-21-2008 05:35 AM

Some pre-wedding information gathered from this thread about the couple's engagement (mainly from Elsa's post):

- The wedding will be held in the Cathedral of Sé in Évora. Look for pictures here.

- Since her father, D. Jaime, 10th Duke of Cadaval, has already passed away, the bride will enter the church accompanied by her godfather, D. Duarte de Bragança.

- A group of nine pageboys and flowergirls will escort Diana down the aisle, including D.ª Maria Francisca de Bragança, daughter of Duke and Duchess of Bragança.

- The religious ceremony will be presided by the emeritus archbishop of Évora, D. Jorge Quintal Maurílio de Gouveia.

- The ceremony will have 400 guests

- The weddingdress comes from Carolina Herrera

- The groom is dressed by Dior

- Diana de Cadaval and Charles d'Orleans will have 16 wedding testimonies, among which is D.ª Isabel (Duchess of Bragança), Prince Jean of France (Duke of Vendôme and cousin of the groom), Prince François d'Orléans (brother of the groom), Alexandra of Cadaval (sister of the bride), the Duke of Feria and Countess Cornelia Brandolini d'Adda (cousin of the bride).

- After the religious ceremony, a lunch will be served at the Cadaval Palace; Cinco Quinas.

About the pre-wedding ball, from Diário de Notícias (with black & white photos):

http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/7...notciaspn5.jpg

It says it was a glamourous event, with the roman temple of Diana as cenary. Women were wearing gowns and men smokings.

About today's ceremony, it adds that the wedding was presided by D. Jorge Quintal Maurílio de Gouveia (the emeritus archbishop of Évora), along with Father Girault (from the Orléans Cathedral) and Father Senra Coelho (from the St. John The Evangelist Chapel, at the Cadaval Ducal Palace). The music was performed by the Voces Caeleste Choir, whose members belong to one of the best Portuguese Choirs, the Gulbenkian Choir.
The bride, as well as the flowergirls, were dressed by Carolina Herrera.

Wish them a long happy married life and plenty of bebes and ninos..........

Marengo 06-21-2008 12:57 PM

Finally some piece of information! I am a bit disappointed that no picture agency seems to have pictures (yet) though.
I suppose Diana's two older sisters will not attend, considering in an HOLA interview she only acknowledged to have one sister.

She has issues with one of them because of the title she claimed she inherited from her father while the elder sister claims the same title as her own. Please correct me if I am wrong. I only thought she has one sister.

Yes, Odette. About the Cadaval dispute, please see this thread:

I suppose SeegerPress will publish photos, since the Portuguese photographers who cover this kind of events usually work for that photoagency. But we may have to wait until the yeallow magazines are published...

They will. I have meet one of the seeger-brothers at Pappenheim and he said that they will have photos of the Wedding.

I love her tiara. The dress...humm... is nice. but for her age she could try another thing...not so classic.
But ok. she has always been classic so it's her style, her wedding, if she likes it's perfect.

Marengo 06-21-2008 04:55 PM

A picture from the Portuguese magazine Caras here. And read the article here.

From what I could see from the small pictures of isifa it seems that Infanta Pilar attended the wedding too, as a Marrocan prince. Also: the count and countess of Paris, Princess Teresa of Brazil, the duke and duchess of Bragança, the duke and duchess of Angouleme, prince Kardam and princess Myriam of Bulgaria, princesses Gloria, Elisabeth and Maria Theresa of Thurn und Taxis, the duke of Vendome, the duke and duchess of Castro (!) and Princess Chantal of France with baron Sambucy de Sorgue.

I didn't recognise any Württemberg or Calabria relatives though.

magnik 06-21-2008 04:59 PM

Classical bride and classical bridal gown. So different from these which we see since years. Is remind me these wore by other noble ladies from the past...
Is it her family tiara or she borrow it from her husband family?

Regina 06-21-2008 06:25 PM

A beautiful picture

They were both Perfect. I wish them the Best!

Regina 06-21-2008 06:41 PM

Thanks for everyone who posted pictures.

Diana's face was covered by the Vail, something I haven't seen for a long time on royal weddings... :smile: After seeing all of them I must say that this wedding was a real ROYAL wedding, everything was classic and elegant.

Diana's gala dress of yesterday night was amazing! I hope we can see larger pictures of the event.

It's in the Cadaval House for more than a century (it was used for the last time at the wedding of the bride's great grandparents). It's an exquisite jewellery piece with diamonds and pearls, set on white gold.


I'm uploading tons of photos... give me some time

Thanks, I'm looking forward to it.

From what I have seen, her dress is nice, but not the WOW factor I was expecting;especially for Carolina Herrera.

kimebear 06-21-2008 07:52 PM

The link is still working for me. Try the root web address and use "Cadaval" as the search word.
