Well ... Congratulations to the couple!
Seniora de Marichalar is an average looking Russian girl. What is she? What is her education?

At some of the pictures (Hola for example) she looks very pretty! If she is average looking Russian girl, than lucky Russia!:smile:

I believe it's not polite to formulate your question using the words "what is she" as if senora Marichalar is some kind of a furniture.:whistling:
Ekatheryna Anikieva is a Ukrainian student of the Moscow University, 22 years old. She studies foreign languages.
Ekatheryna and Alvaro met in Moscow April 25th 2009 at Alvaro's birthday party.:flowers:

She looks sooooo young :)

It has been kind of you to provide additional information about Seniora de Marichalar. The question "What is he/she?" means that one inquires about a person's profession. There is nothing inappropriate in it.

The beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. What is very pretty for one person may not be so beautiful for another.:flowers:

The question that should be asked what is he? or who is he or how much does HE have? why should a young attractive woman marry someone who is obviously quite older than her and didn't shave for his own wedding? Who are the De Marichalars? rich? noble? both?

Thanks for your lesson of English basics. I haven't ask for it, still thanks.
The question about the profession "what is her occupation?" seems to sound nicer, doesn't it?

Since I am a Ukrainian myself and I like this young lady a lot -- I have another impression of your words.
Regards.:smile:

Dear PetraHel,
Actually, Ekatheryna is Ukrainian. The Ukrainian women are famous for their beauty for centuries. For example, Roxelana who was also the most influential lady of the Ottoman Empire during her lifetime.
Besides, Ukrainian women are devoted mothers.

Al_bina 09-27-2010 03:07 PM

Well ... Given the fact that the language issue has been resolved, it is better to abandon any further discussion related to the specifics of the English language and any other lectures on appropriate use of the above language.

Don Alvaro de Marichalar is the brother of Don Jaime de Marichalar, who was Infanta Elena's husband, and the son of Count of Ripalda. He is the member of the noble Spanish family. I am not sure about his financial status or his profession. As for the marriage bliss, it remains to be seen how long it lasts.

Both.
Alvaro is well known for his sports activities. For example he managed to make a voyage on board of his yacht from South America to Antarctida, and across the Pasific to Japan all alone. He has filmed some interesting documentary footage for TV. His business as a producer is also successful.
He is a good friend with the Duchess's of Alba son who was his best man at the wedding.
The Spanish press called him "a jewel bachelor":flowers:

Melibea 09-27-2010 04:25 PM

He is known as a playboy.

And the wedding is considered to be a joke for nearly all the press. The rumour is that there is going to be an exclusive in this week Hola. Jaime de Marichalar didn't stay for the dinner after the church ceremony, and nor Victoria Federica nor Felipe went to the wedding. This article says that maybe Jaime didn't want to appear in the exclusive.

They are going to get married again in Ukraine.

Al_bina 09-27-2010 04:40 PM

How can the wedding be a joke? They married in the church with a real priest. Perhaps the couple is going to have a municipal wedding in Ukraine. There can be only one church ceremony.

Melibea 09-27-2010 04:45 PM

Of course the wedding is valid as far as I know :smile:
I've read that they were going to have an orthodox ceremony in Ukraine, but about that we will have to see. :ermm:

Al_bina 09-27-2010 04:51 PM

Thanks for the clarification!:flowers:
Having two church ceremonies ... Perhaps it is a new way of doing thing nowadays.

Well she is loads prettier than what Jaime married.:whistling:

Al_bina 09-27-2010 05:40 PM

This might true. Infanta Elena may not be considered as beautiful according to the standards. At the same time, she is the full-blooded Princess and good mother.
As stated above, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

That's a pretty rude statement to make behind a computer keyboard.

Its a trite expression but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Commonconsort 09-27-2010 06:26 PM

Nothing rude about it at all. She is prettier than Elena IMO.:flowers:

In some cases, beauty is in the eyes of the BEER-HOLDER !!:biggrin:
