Depends on how many relatives from the side of the groom's grandmother attend. There could be some of France, Württemberg, Savoy

Today the family visited the "Boccone del Povero" soup kitchen in Palermo. On the occasion of the wedding, this organization and another in Naples have received a donation to provide meals for a month.

The family are well related plus we often see a gathering at these weddings from various royal houses.

I think they are not going to attend to the wedding for the volcano's crisis, It's a very grave situation with thousands of evacuated, hundred of people who lost their homes and obviously all their things, the little ones their toys (some of them don't understand what is happening), it's not right time to go to a wedding, even if they are family and close friends, and they will support Felipe and Letizia's decision in this complicated moment for their own country for sure.





(Another possibility has a name: Urdangarín, he could attend to the wedding and this way they avoid yellow press, which it's the best they can do it.)

I don't think they go to the wedding because of the volcano situation. And of course it's the best decision.

I like the bagpipes playing for the bride's family and her little page boys wearing kilts.

It is a very beautiful cathedral.

I'd like to get a better look at the bride's dress, the only detail I could really make out was the lace bodice and sleeves.

There does seem to be a crowd gathered which is interesting since it's in Italy and not Spain.

The duchess of Calabria is wearing the traditional Spanish outfit for the mother of the groom: a long dress and a mantilla. The dowager duchess seems to be repeating her outfit of the 2004 wedding of the (now) king and queen of Spain. A pity the Spanish RF is absent.

The duke and duchess of Huescar were spotted among the guests.

Lovely to see an actual horse and carriage being used on the wedding day.

Tilia C. 09-25-2021 06:22 AM

I'm looking forward to better pictures. Everything seems to be done in great style, with the carriages, the incredibly beautiful cathedral and the bride looked beautiful, even though one can't yet appreciate the details of the gown. I'm curious about the tiara. It's certainly not the diamond button tiara which the mother of the groom and most of his aunts wore. So it's probably from her own family, though it can't be ruled out that there's still another tiara in the groom's family. Maybe one from Princess Alicia?

Wasn't everything sold? Perhaps a tiara from the bride's family?

I think it looked like a modern fringe tiara. In style like the one owned by the late Princess Irene of Greece, Duchess of Aosta.

Tilia C. 09-25-2021 06:37 AM

On looking closer it might be the diamond tiara that Emma Ruiz de Azcarate Garcia-Lomas wore when she married Manuel Morales de Borbon dos Sicilias. It was a Mellerio tiara that goes back to AD Maria Anna, according to Christophe Vachaudez. But waiting for clearer pics to be sure.

I'm not sure how many tiaras Alicia had. The ruby tiara was worn by some of her granddaughters, but I think it has been sold meanwhile. Also the sapphire tiara has been sold, according to my knowledge. But I can't find my notes quite now. :sad:

The family must still have this tiara that belonged to the Bourbon Parma and that was worn by a daughter-in-law of Ines at her wedding in 2007.

Infanta Alicia sold the set of sapphires, and from the set of rubies Teresa still has some pieces, but others were auctioned. At the auction of the Parma Bourbon jewels, two tiaras were also auctioned.

Video of the Couple leaving the Cathedral. At 0:47 one can get a good view on the tiara and it is not the one worn by the daughter-in-law of Princess Ines

Looks like a pearl topped diamond fringe?

Seems like a lovely classic gown, remind me of Alessandra of Hanover's gown.

Wow, that Bourbon Parme diadem is one of the most elegant around, I must say.
