Juliana was married a year before so she would not be a bridesmaid. It would have been curious as Paul was one of the few (royal) men she was interested in, but he was reserved for Greece. As Juliana was only 3 weeks away from giving birth to her daughter Beatrix I assume she was at home though. The lady on the right might be Paul's youngest sister, Princess Katherine of Greece.

Fascinating!! So much information beautifully written and extremely easy to follow.
Q Wilhelmina had so many requirements for Juliana...Can you imagine what they had to go through to find her a husband??

Is it a royal custom or just a European custom in general that bridesmaids must be unmarried? I'm totally unfamiliar with that.

By virtue of its name, bridesMAIDS were traditionally unmarried women.
Wedding ceremony participants - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I think today, people marry at various ages so the traditions get more relaxed. I think most women would prefer to have close female relatives and friends be their bridesmaids, regardless of marital status, than make sure all of them are "maids." Also, it used be unacceptable for a second-time bride to have another big white wedding, and usually only called for one female attendant. Today, women seem to jump at the chance to wear a big white dress again with another (or the same) set of bridesmaids to do it again.
I believe Princess Margaret was the first royal to use exclusively children/teens as bridesmaids because she married at a relatively late age for the time (30) and most of her friends were already married by 1960.

Just to remind, if not mistaken,that at the marriage Konstantin of Greece to Anne Marie, the bridesmaid was his mother.

A little bit more then 9 months after the wedding. But interesting this was the case for all the future greek Kings that the first child arrivied within 1 year after the wedding. Even Princess Maria Olypmpia was born a bit more then 1 year after the Wedding of her parents.
