The Princess was born in 1973, daughter of Count Patrick Douglas and his wife Countess Alexandra, née Freiin von Berlichingen.

Thank you very much for the information on and pictures from the wedding, MAfan! :flowers:
The bride looks very beautiful, although I'm not sure about the rather daring design of the dress (for a Royal wedding).
I was thrilled to see so many familiar faces: Albrecht and Marie Louise of Castell-Castell (I love Marie Louise’s ensemble), Ludwig and Yvonne of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn (another lovely dressed lady, although I'd prefer a hat) and of course, Princess Benedikte.

MAfan 09-10-2009 03:21 PM

Exactly, Christina is a second cousin once removed of the Duchess in Bavaria and of Rosita Spencer-Churchill.
