I agree; she looks older for her age.

The wedding was nice, but the added "accessory" of a pregnancy could have waited until after the wedding, but that's just my thing...

Reina 01-08-2005 04:27 PM

When I see her I am constantly reminded with what my mom always tells me (paraphrasing): when you screw around so much, a girl can lose her young, natural beauty. I kind of think this is the case. I also think that they will get a divorce cuz Emmanuelle does not look happy

I thought the exact same thing looking at those pictures- Emmanuelle does not look at all happy or pleased. I truly believe that the only reason that they married is because she got pregnant.
...mmm. I guess I'm biased, though- Clotilde really annoys me for some reason. :mad: I hope she and Emmanuelle can prove me wrong!

Lollies!

Clotilde and E. Filiberto made us ppl from Italy so proud, and their 2 daughters, Vittoria and Chiara are so lovely- I wish they would have a son soon , a heir, in fact should Monarchy come back, which is far- fetched anyway, we have not the Salic Law, only a male can ascend to the throne.

his real name is Emanuele Filiberto, Emmanuelle is a female french name.
we are talking about HRH Prince of Venezia, and of HRH Prince of Napoli, Vittorio Emanuele.

The couple has only 1 daughter and her name is Vittoria Cristina Adelaide Chiara Maria.

I prefer the claim of the Aosta´s so I would not mind this couple having no sons so that the succession issue is resolved once and for all, in favour of Aymone of Aosta and his future wife Princess Olga of Greece.

I haven't looked at these pictures before today... but he doesn't look like he's that into her. He barely looks at her, except when they kissed. Hmmm.

Marengo 08-26-2005 02:25 AM

well, this weeks Point de Vue has some pictures of the couple on holiday, he is definately 'in to her' on those pictures, they still seem very much in love.

of course, Prince Vittorio Emanuele, the groom's father, paid for it. Emanuele Filiberto, though he lived in exile til 2002, never lost his title, a title his own grandfather gave him the day of his christening, so, why should he not have a Royal wedding just like any other Royal ? in other countries, it's ppl, when paying taxes, who pays for a Royal wedding, here the groom's family paid for it.

Yeah, the Aosta are gentlemen, true to their position as royals unlike the Savoy family who does nothing but attract attention in the worst possible ways (remember Felipe and Letizia's wedding, that was the WORST spectacle the head of a royal house can provide; even if Emanuele Filiberto got married before him no wonder why there wasn't many royals in the wedding:rolleyes:, they don¡t want to mix with those rude people ).

Rosequeen 08-25-2006 01:31 PM

I absolutely LOVE her bouquet - when I'm getting married that will be the one my fiancee has in mind ;-)

magnik 08-25-2006 01:42 PM

Agree, dress ok, but these shoes:wacko:

Jackswife 08-25-2006 10:01 PM

I think the most striking thing about that day was how absolutely radiant Clotilde looked. It can't have been easy for her to be in the "condition" she was and she probably had a lot of criticism for that, but she held her head high and looked totally glowing and happy. She and EF make a great couple.:flowers:

Hannelore 08-26-2006 07:25 AM

A day of bad taste if ever there was one. (Apart from Clotilde's sisters who looked really nice, thanks to Mr Lagerfeld). No wonder none of the reigning royal houses wanted to come.

What was so "day of bad taste" about it? Was it the fact she was pregnant? Let's be real here....it's the 21st century. This isn't the olden days of virgin brides dressed in white. Some women get pregnant and decide to get married. Sometimes the baby has to do with why they're getting married and sometimes the baby doesn't. Doesn't mean it's distasteful.

Now if you're talking about the shoes, I agree with you there. Platform pumps just don't scream "wedding".

Poor Clotilde lost her refined Valentino's pumps just before the ceremony (or maybe she had foot problems due to her pregnancy)... :wacko: So she decided to wear those horrible platform shoes.

Did you know that Clotilde applied her make-up by herself?

RubyPrincess168 10-07-2006 01:07 AM

I remember watching them on the tv special about young royals. The interviewer was with Clotilde as she was trying on her wedding dress, hairstyle and jewels, and asked her what she saw when she looked in the mirror. She replied "I want to cry." and the interviewer replied back with "Tears of joy.". I thought "No, that's not what she said.".

A very nice view of the Savoy tiara and earings set:

Little pity that we don't see her more in these jewels.

This tiara and earrings are absolutely beautiful. What is the pinkish stone? Sapphires? I thought that she was a beautiful bride.

Warren 10-30-2008 03:42 AM

The tiara is composed of diamonds and pink topaz. According to Vincent Meylan in Queen's Jewels the topazes can be replaced with turquoise or jet stones.
The complete parure comprises tiara, necklace, earrings, stomacher and a pair of bracelets.

I loved her gown. It was elegant and regal in simplicity. To me, it was timeless. Her tiara and bouquet were also incredible. The only thing I disliked were the shoes.

CyrilVladisla 09-22-2018 07:33 PM

Clotilde wore a custom Valentino gown with a lace veil. Emanuele Filiberto's great grandparents, King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy and Queen Elena of Montenegro, were married at the same church.

princeofitaly 04-27-2020 11:57 AM

Clotilde's tiara was wondderful, also bouquet.
Jer gown is regal, elegant but at the same time simple.
