The Tiaras Come Out For Luxembourg’s Royal Wedding Dinner Gala [PHOTOS]

October 19th, 2012 // 3 Comments

I don’t know who the hell half these people are, but the women are wearing insane jewelry and priceless tiaras, so I’m intrigued.

Tonight (October 19th), Princess Caroline of Monaco put on her dandiest baubles and headed into Luxembourg’s Grand-ducal Palace for the gala dinner celebrating wedding of Prince Guillaume Of Luxembourg and Belgian Countess Stephanie de Lannoy.

The 30-year-old  Grand Duke of Luxembourg is the last hereditary prince in Europe to get married.  He and his 28-year-old bride are throwing a lavish 2-day ceremony, which kicked off today with a civil ceremony.  The Countress is now HRH Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg (and ps-she looked fabulous in Chanel earlier today).

According to my new best friend @Luxarazzi, Elie Saab was the designer of choice for Princess Maria Chantal of Greece, Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein and Clotilde Courau, who is apparently the Princess of Venice and Piedmont.  Who knew?

Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex will represent Britain’s royal family at the religious ceremony tomorrow (October 20th). 

The Grand Duke-to-be, according to the Daily Mail, speaks four languages, is a lieutenant colonel in the country’s armed forces, and has studied international politics.  Stephanie plays piano and violin, and has studied the influence of German romanticism on Russian romanticism.  You know, useful stuff.

Luxembourg’s royal family is very popular among its people and, according to Luxarazzi, is the world’s only remaining Grand Duchy.  Their surname is “de Nassau,” like the British royal family‘s surname is “Mountbatten-Windsor.”
