We may - for almost sure- expect the attendance of the Dutch royal couple: not only is King Willem-Alexander a godfather to the bride: Leonie Gräfin von Waldburg-Zeil und Hohenems was also one of their bridal children at the Royal Wedding 02-02-02.
When the bride's sister married in 2021 they did not attend the Wedding itself, but the Ball in the evening

He's George's godfather, so very likely .
