Dear Diamanttiara, I just bought the book "Royal Weddings" which is a brand new release. I am sure it must be the one you are looking for, since it is the onliest about royal weddings I have heard about. A huge compilation of the best royal weddings from Queen Victoria, Grace Kelly, Juan Carlos and Sofia, Máxima and many others - with lots of marvellous pictures and illustrations and interesting background information. It's in German and English - you will love it! I already know how I will spent my weekend!!

I bought this book today and it's simply marvellous. Lots of photos that I have never seen before and many background information. Did you know, for example, that Alfred Hitchcock's wedding present to Grace Kelly was a shower curtain? It also shows many beautiful details such as the menu of the wedding of Felipe and Letizia or the invitation to the wedding of Maxima and Willem-Alexander. And the most fun images are those of the Crown Prince couple of Brunei. I will have a great weekend, I am sure!

Excellent, Warren! I had no idea this book was coming out. Thanks!

This looks like the Amazon page for the book, which isn't out yet in the USA or the United Kingdom.

Yes, that's the one! It was posted today with further information at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ngs-17560.html. I am lucky because it is released in Germany already. It's simply fantastic!

Elspeth 06-29-2008 02:13 PM

I've preordered it from Amazon. From what everyone's saying, it looks as though it's well worth it.

Diamanttiara 06-29-2008 03:42 PM

Thatīs the book I was looking for
 
"I bought the book yesterday. Itīs really great. The fotos are phantastic and show some really private moments backstage. And - though I think I`m an expert on royal concerns - I found lots of details I didnīt know. The japanese couple wasnīt alloud to eat the whole wedding day for example. And on some stories I really had to cry a little bit. Thereīs an excerpt from the after-dinner speech Haakon held on his wedding and I think itīs the most romantic weddingspeech I ever heard of."

Well, we've received an e-mail from the publisher of this book at the TRF e-mail account. I assume she won't mind having the cover of the book included in the post since it was in the e-mail.



This magnificent volume will fascinate all interested by lavish indulgence fit for a king!
This richly illustrated volume offers a unique impression of the most spectacular royal weddings!

Today we would like to present our new title Royal Weddings!


Nothing surpasses the pageantry of a royal wedding. Pomp and ritual combine in a spectacle few can resist. That mingling of personal charisma, age-old institutions, and contemporary mores is enough to intrigue the most hardened of hearts! These royal unions embody the hopes, dreams and characteristics of nations as distinct as Sweden, Japan and Spain. Comprehensive text and stunning pictures chronicle the fascinating details that make these state celebrations of personal commitment so unique and memorable.
