Never saw the Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte so happy and smiling.

The bride was almost as well related to the European Royal Houses as the late Grand Duchess herself.

While I know Sibilla has royal and noble blood from her mother's family - and I am sure the grand duchess was pleased that she wasn't just 'anybody' but at least had a 'decent' blood line on her mother's side (including a king of Spain as a great-grandfather and a queen of the UK as a great-great-great-grandmother) by virtue the queen of the UK, this statement seems a little far fetched.

Josephine-Charlotte:
* one generation (parents): king of Belgium, princess of Sweden
* two generations (grandparents): king of Belgium, duchess in Bavaria, prince of Sweden, princess of Denmark
* three generations (greatgrandparents): prince of Belgium, princess of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, duke in Bavaria, infanta of Portugal, king of Sweden, princess of Nassau, king of Denmark, princess of Sweden
* four generations (great-great-grandparents): king of Belgium, princess of Orleans, prince of Hohenzollern, princess of Baden, duke in Bavaria, princess of Bavaria, king of Portugal, princess of Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, king of Sweden, princess of Leuchtenberg, duke of Nassau, princess of Württemberg, king of Denmark, princess of Hesse-Kassel, king of Sweden, princess of the Netherlands

Sibilla:
* one generation: mr Weiller, donna Torlonia
* second generation: mr Weiller, ms Diplarakou, prince of Civitella-Cesi, infanta of Spain
* third generation: mr Weiller, ms Javal, mr Diplarakou, ms Nicolessis, prince of Civitella-Cesi, ms Moore, king of Spain, princess of Battenberg
* fourth generation: mr Weiller, ms Ducasse, mr Javal, ms Elissen, (2x unknown), duke of Poli & Guadagnolo, donna Chigi della Rovere-Albani, mr Moore, ms Campbell, king of Spain, archduchess of Austria, prince of Battenberg, princess of the United Kingdom

I've always loved that they had four male attendants - each children of one of Prince Guillaume's siblings.
Note that three of the four boys were born in 1988. All very sweet.

Princess Marie-Astrid - son, Christoph of Austria (1988)
Prince Henri - son, Guillaume of Luxembourg (1981)
Princess Margaretha - son, Josef-Emanuel of Liechtenstein (1988)
Prince Jean - son, Constantin of Nassau (1988)

I still have the HOLA! magazine from this wedding. The number of royals and aristocracy who attended is amazing.

A great Wedding and a joy for both family. The Bride Grand Father Commandant Weiler was Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte Friend. He gave her a jewel who was in the Auction to be and cancelled.

This was a VERY grand Royal wedding...so grand that Marie Chantal Miller reportedly decided to use it as the yardstick against which her own nuptials to CP Pavlos of Greece would be measured.

She was determined to outdo the Guillaume/Sibilla nuptials at Versailles.

Whether she succeeded is a matter of taste and opinion. For sheer elegance and refinement I choose the Luxembourg wedding.
