“The stairs to the cathedral turned out to be quite a job for the bridal children. Prince Amedeo’s youngest son stole the show when he lost his shoe. Fortunately, 3-year-old Maximilian was quickly helped on his way by his grandfather, Prince Lorenz, the father of the bride.”

“The wind played tricks on many guests. Princess Laetitia Maria’s headgear flew and Princess Elisabeth was just able to save hers. Her red copy is by the Belgian hat maker Fabienne Delvigne, who also designed the bag with her bright red outfit.”

“Maria-Laura breaks with traditions”, says royal family expert Joëlle Vanden Houden, who wrote the book ‘Princess of Belgium’ together with Brigitte Balfoort. “She already did that by wearing bottines in her engagement photos. A sign that she is firmly in life, I thought. In the town hall she wore a mini dress again: it is the first time that we have seen a Belgian princess marry in a short wedding dress. ”That she chose a British designer is less surprising. “She lives in London. But her mother, Princess Astrid, does not wear Belgian very often and chooses more for Gucci or Chanel.”

For the religious ceremony, Maria-Laura chose a design by the British Vivienne Westwood. “The princess has always understood and appreciated Dame Vivienne Westwood’s style,” said Hervé Verhoosel, the family’s spokesperson.

It is a silk Cocotte dress, a typical style of the designer and a dress with many historical influences. The corset and neckline are inspired by the fashionable ladies of the 18th century. The fabric hugs the shoulders, falls from the hips and is reminiscent of Greek statues. An ivory colored silk train of 4 meters completes the impressive dress. “That length has been specially added to stand out enough in the impressive cathedral,” says Verhoosel.

The train will be removed again for the reception and the evening party. The princess will also wear a diadem from the Savoie-Aoste family.

The cathedral is simply decorated, with only two impressive flower arrangements behind the altar. The princess chose the flowers herself. She wanted a lot of yellow, so it became a summer bouquet of pink, white and yellow.

The choice to get married in Brussels is not an obvious one. The couple lives and works in London, but consciously chooses to tie the knot here. “It is a symbolic choice,” says the personal spokesperson for the couple Hervé Verhoosel. The civil ceremony takes place in a small circle in the Brussels town hall. This is followed by a ceremony at 2.30 pm in the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula.
