On 7 April 1921 Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria married princess Antonia of Luxembourg in Lenggries (Germany). The groom had been married before to duchess Marie-Gabrielle in Bavaria, who died in 1912. The bride was the daughter of Grand Duke William IV of Luxembourg and Princess Maria-Anna of Portugal:

This photos prompted me to look up their age difference. According to Wikipedia, he was 30 years oler than her.:ohmy:
 
Luxembourgs G.Ducal Court don't appear to be media savvy and are still in the early 2000's by the looks of their official site.
 
The Nuncio to Bavaria who performed the ceremony was Eugenio Pacelli. The Nuncio would become Pope Pius XII.
 
They went through a lot, especially Princess Antonia when she was captured by the Nazis. Plus there was opposition to the marriage because of the World war. They have many descendants today and only one of their children is alive today, dowager Princess Sophie of Arenberg.
