Lord Nicholas Windsor and Paola Doimi de Frankopan: 4 November 2006
 
Lord Nicholas Windsor and Paola Doimi de Frankopan were married in a civil ceremony on October 19, 2006 in a London Registry office.

Their religious ceremony will take place tomorrow, November 4, 2006, at the Church of Santo Stefano degli Abissini at the Vatican. This is the first British Royal wedding to take place at the Vatican in 400 years and has been awarded blessing from the Queen, who is reported to be delighted about the union.

A short biography of the bride and photo of the couple is hosted at Wikipedia under her new title, Lady Nicholas Windsor. Articles about the marriage can also be seen at The Universe The Times The Times(2) The Royalist and Science Daily and pictures of the couple are posted on the Glittering Events Message Board.

Congratulations to the couple! It seems that they have both encountered challenges during their lives and it is wonderful that they have found happiness together.

great photos! I can0t wait to tomorrow! ONly will asist te kent family or another member of the royal family?

Zonk 11-03-2006 09:09 AM

Lord Nicholas looks great! Its so nice to see him happy considering some of his issues (depression if I am correct).

In regards to the wedding...I think Prince Charles migiht pop in (as he is just coming back from Pakistan)..but he is Nicholas godfather.

ETA: Correction. I have read that some senior members of the Royal Family will attend a Party/Reception for the couple sometime in June 2007. I believe it was The Royalist...and those members include the Queen and Prince Charles.

This appears to be some sort of pre-wedding event attended by the couple at St. Peter's in the Vatican, taken November 1, 2006

Any idea what time the wedding is to take place today?

lady_windsor 11-04-2006 10:33 AM

Does anyone know if they are going to publish any pictures from the wedding?

Does any one know wheter the Duke of Kent will be attending the wedding? I know that the Queen wont attend, but what about other minor royals more closely related to him

I'm not sure, Lady_Windsor.

I have searched Getty Images but nothing is to be found so far.

I am sure that we will see a series of photos in Hello! in the next week or so, but it would be nice to see something sooner than that. :smile:

Apart from the Stuarts in exile, possibly, does anyone know of a British royal wedding ever held in the Vatican (or in the vicinity of Rome under the auspices of the Pope)? I can't think of one.

Beck 11-05-2006 01:19 PM

who were bridesmaids? eloise or estella or lady amelia or lady marina?

congratulations to them

azile 11-06-2006 12:56 PM

Two photos are available on the Glittering Royal Events message board here.

magnik 11-06-2006 01:05 PM

I thouhgt that Paola use a tiara. On those photos - which aren't good, they doesn't look good. That's only my opinion.


Congrats to the newly-weds.

Zonk 11-06-2006 01:54 PM

I am hoping those are bad pics..I try not to criticize on someone's wedding day...but what was with her hair?!

azile 11-06-2006 02:07 PM

Hopefully, there will be much better photos released because these ones do not show a blushing, radiant bride!

I too was VERY surprised she wore a mantilla without any visible jewellry- perhaps she is saving the diamonds for the wedding party in London in January. Does anyone know- are there restrictions (beyond having shoulders covered) for brides at the Vatican?

corazon 11-06-2006 05:03 PM

he photos are great! the last kent single!!!!!! I hope we can see more pictures, especially in camera press

rominet09 11-06-2006 07:47 PM

Well well well, not the most impressive bride I think (no offence intented)

Empress 11-06-2006 07:53 PM

Hey -

Where can I find photos? I have not seen any.

Thanks

Elspeth 11-06-2006 08:18 PM

There's a link in Azile's post 13.

Some of those page boys look a lot like Nicholas and his elder brother when they were children.

Empress 11-06-2006 09:51 PM

Good Heavens! Did her hairdresser get lost or forget to come?

azile 11-06-2006 11:45 PM

I didn't notice immediately but you're right! There is quite a resemblance between Cassius & Columbus and their uncle Nicholas when he was about their age- here are two photos of him as page at Charles & Diana's wedding photo 1 photo 2

Danielle 11-06-2006 11:51 PM

Maybe I'm missing something here, but what's wrong with Paola's hair? :ermm: It's covered by a veil and you can hardly see it. From what I see of her and the dress, she looks very pretty. The only 'problem' I have with the first photo is that not everyone is looking at the camera (I know it's hard for kids, but still). Anyway, I love mantilla veils and hers looks really nice. I hope there will be some more photos soon. Congratulations to the couple!

And Marina Ogilvy, (Mowatt?) the daughter of Princess Alexandra is also no longer married.

BeatrixFan 11-08-2006 11:30 AM

Bride looks a little bit like a bird's nest but nice to see the Duchess of Kent out and about and smiling. I thought she'd forgotten how.

kelly9480 11-09-2006 09:04 PM

Paola looks terrible in that second pic, but Kate looks lovely.

azile 11-11-2006 04:02 PM

Another photo of the wedding party has been issued and can be seen here on the Royal Wedding Message Board.

magnik 11-11-2006 04:06 PM

Still doesn't look good maybe more happy.

azile 11-16-2006 12:58 PM

FINALLY! Some photos have been released that show a much happier couple! See them on the Royal Weddings Message Board here.

There is also a lovely photo of them at their pre-wedding ball here.

magnik 11-16-2006 02:48 PM

Maybe it's nice dress, but there's smth in that which I don't like. Maybe it should has little longer train... Her hairdo still I think were terrible but the veil - nice. But maybe these are only not the best photos of the couple. That's only my opinion.

Her red dress was great.

Paula** 11-16-2006 04:37 PM

I'm sure it was a very beautiful marriage. I do not consider her dress and hair that awful, she's a pretty woman who looks pretty normal in her wedding.
A marriage in Vatican is something very interesting:rolleyes:

ps: her pre-wedding ball dress is gorgeous.

Lady Marmalade 11-20-2006 12:58 PM

That is interesting his aunt and uncle did not attend.....hmm....

BeatrixFan 11-20-2006 03:50 PM

I thought Princess Michael would be there lapping it all up.

Warren 11-27-2006 05:50 AM

With her daughter too, now she's newly eligible...
No need to carry an Almanach de Gotha in one's handbag when there's an opportunity to meet them in the flesh. :biggrin:

dbarn67 01-08-2007 11:56 AM

If anyone is interested the current issue of Majesty magazine (with QEII on the cover) has pictures of the wedding. Some nice closeups of the bride and pics of Lady Helen and her boys.

Velasco 12-02-2008 04:21 PM

Does anyone know what her royal connections are?

I recall the name "Frankopan" as a noble surname, from my computer game Crusader Kings, lol, and wonder if she is descended from a noble dynasty of that name.

The Frankopan family, also known as de Frangipanibus or Frangipane in Italian, was one of the most important families in Croatia. Their received the title of Count, than Prince of Veglia and during a period (ca 1400) they were rulers of almost all Croatia. I met in the uk a Princess Doimi de Frankopan, who probably is a relative of the future wife of Lord George, but I do not have more informations.

Marc23 12-21-2010 09:07 PM

She doesn't have anything to do with the Frankopans except the name...

She is indeed from a very old noble,but untitled family,Doimi di DeLupis...

Her father was a member of Croatia's noble assembly but was thrown out because he assumed all the family names he added to his own...

One other member of this assembly said:"Is it just not enough to be a Doimi di De Lupis?"

This signification was made upon the status that this family alone had...

So,Paola was born just as a noble person,not a titled on:Princess or a Countess...

CordeliaFitzgerald 01-02-2011 08:29 PM

Oy, I clicked on links in the thread and they said 'file not found.' Not fair! Especially after the comments about the bride's hair and dress. I want to see what she looked like!

SASSY 08-28-2011 02:02 PM

:previous:
Me too. I just saw them at the Prince of Prussia's wedding. Don't recall seeing anything about their wedding so I came here. :sad:

XeniaCasaraghi 05-26-2012 10:28 PM

Anymore pictures? The dress looked nice enough from the one picture I saw of it.

CyrilVladisla 01-14-2018 02:59 PM

I liked Paola's long bridal veil.

A photo of Paola’s wedding dress without the shrug and veil:

https://www.vogue.com/article/my-roy...h-royal-family

I don’t like her wedding dress. Not only do I generally dislike it, but it looks more like an evening gown rather than a wedding dress. I also dislike the shrug. Nevertheless, I find her veil very beautiful.

bertie5252003 10-13-2019 11:58 AM

The article for Vogue is so gracious and charming I like her even more now thank you

Moonmaiden23 10-13-2019 02:15 PM

Lady Nicholas seems to be everything...elegant, scholarly, patrician yet unaffected and gracious.

She is also very lovely. I wish we read more about her.:smile:

Countessmeout 10-13-2019 03:00 PM

She indeed seems quite intelligent and down to earth. Well written piece, but then again she is a contributing editor to both Vogue and Tattler so comes with the job.

The sons of the queen's cousins have all chosen well in their spouses. Well educated, successful women.

CyrilVladisla 10-14-2019 10:49 PM

From the article for Vogue, it was informative to learn Paola had originally told Nicholas that they would eat peacock like the ancient Romans. Instead they had pheasant.
