royal weddings of 2019
Royal weddings are great events that are lived with all the pomp and ceremony, although it all depends on who gets married and what their rank. 2019 has been a year of royalty links, although it is true that those who have married have little or very little relevance at the institutional level. However, they have not been less interesting.

Carlota Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam

Of the four outstanding royal weddings of 2019, there is one that takes victory above all of them: that of Carlota Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam. As tradition dictates in the Grimaldi Family, on the one hand, a civil bond is celebrated, and on the other hand a religious one. They can be in consecutive days or space weeks, as did Carlota Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam, protagonists of the great wedding of weddings.

Although Amazon has been responsible for emphasizing that she is not a princess or anyone, only the niece of a Head of State, her wedding has lived up to a royal. After a long wait came the link that seemed that it would never occur, and since it took so long to marry so many rumors of crisis and breakup, it had to be all over the place.

On June 1, 2019, and l Grimaldi Palace opened its doors to Carlota Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam to legally join. The daughter of Carolina of Monaco placed a brocade mini dress with three bows on the gray front of Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello. The look was inspired by the dress that Grace Kelly wore in her civil wedding with Prince Rainier in 1956. The 50-year-old Riviera-inspired party was held in the gardens and in the pool of the Prince's Palace in Monaco, and so relaxed was that the groom ended up being thrown into the pool by Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi, the funny brothers-in-law of Dimitri Rassam.

The best was yet to come with a night reception at La Vigie, the impressive residence attached to Monaco that was owned by Karl Lagerfeld, a close friend of Princess Carolina and her children and who died 3 and a half months before the link. For the occasion, the bride collected her hair in a fake bob wore a spring-summer 2019 Chanel that reinterpreted to her liking and was placed on the neck in a three-row necklace of Cartier diamonds that was owned by Grace Kelly, this being the second tribute to Grace Kelly. From La Vigie an official photo of Carlota Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam was taken as a really impressive husband and wife. The wedding ended on June 2 with a brunch at the Yacht Club in Monaco.

Before the end of June 2019, the already married couple traveled to Provence to marry the eyes of the Catholic Church. On June 29, the couple married at Abbey Sainte-Marie de Pierredon, in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where Carlota Casiraghi lived in her childhood with her mother and her siblings after the death of their father, Stefano Casiraghi. The inspiration for her bridal dress was Carolina of Monaco when she chose a bohemian and vintage Giambattista Valli suit with lace, embroidery, and flight that reminded Christian Dior that the Princess of Hanover married Philippe Junot on June 29. 1978. The wedding lasted two days and was hardly forgettable.

Louis Ducruet and Marie Chevallier

If Carlota Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam had a wedding in style, their cousins ​​Louis Ducruet and Marie Chevallier also had theirs, although in another style. Continuing the tradition, they separated their wedding into two, although unlike the Casiraghi, they were followed and in Monaco. They first married civilly on July 26, 2019, at an intimate ceremony at the Monte-Carlo City Hall with family and closest friends. Then a reception was held in the gardens of the Grimaldi Palace.

The big day arrived on Saturday, July 27. If Carlota Casiraghi paid tribute to her grandmother with her dress, her grandson Louis Ducruet did so by choosing the place to celebrate their religious wedding: the couple got married in the Cathedral of Our Lady Immaculate of Monaco, the same place where Rainier III and Grace Kelly were married on April 19, 1956. In addition, the bride placed her bouquet on the grave of Louis Ducruet's maternal grandparents.

Despite the chosen site, the wedding was quite private and Palacio Grimaldi controlled what was shown and what was not. It is the union of a Prince Albert's nephew without titles and away from the line of succession, so he was not given the rank that the Prince of Monaco's wedding did.

Anyway, it was a party that was organized at the Monte Carlo Bay & Hotel Resort and that even featured fireworks. Various images distributed by Palacio Grimaldi were shown in which you can see not only the enormous family unit shown by the Royal Family but the naturalness of the couple and their guests.

Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston

The wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston had all the ingredients to be the perfect link for British royalty. The only problem was that it was held on May 18, 2019, that is, 364 days after that of the Dukes of Sussex, and 7 months have passed since Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank said 'yes, I want to'. The three links were held in St George's Chapel of Windsor Castle, so it sounded like a repeated wedding after seeing three so similar.

However, due to her rank, that of Prince Michael's daughter of Kent, in turn, Queen's second niece, had a more private character than those of the previous ones. It was not broadcast, nor was there a wedding procession in a carriage through the streets of Windsor. What there was was a great presence of the British Royal Family. They were Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Harry, the Duke of York, Sarah Ferguson, Princess Beatrice, and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Prince Edward, Princess Ana, Sir Timothy Laurence, as well as the Kent. After the 'yes, I want' there was a reception in Windsor, closing the festivities with a brunch.

Jean-Cristophe Napoleon and Olympia of Austria

The fourth wedding, with more historical and symbolic than institutional weight, which has none, is the one that united in sacred marriage Jean-Cristophe Napoléon, one of the suitors to the nonexistent Throne of France and head of the house of Bonaparte, with Countess Olympia Elena Maria von und zu Arco-Zinneberg, great-granddaughter of Charles I, last Emperor of Austria.

The couple married on October 19, 2019, at the Cathedral of the Invalids in Paris, precisely the place where Napoléon is buried, a hero for some and tyrant for others. After the link, the guests moved to the Castle of Fontainebleau, where it was celebrated as loudly as once again a Napoléon has married an Austria.

Among the attendees highlighted Princess Beatrice of York and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Prince Paul of Greece, his daughter Olympia and his brother Felipe of Greece, who attended with his partner, Nina Flohr. The Grand Duke of Luxembourg, the Grand Duke Heir and the Grand Duchess Heiress, the Princes Felix and Claire, as well as Prince Louis of Luxembourg, Prince William of Luxembourg and his wife, Sibilla Weiller.

Astrid and Lorenzo from Austria came from Belgium, in addition to Prince Laurent, while Christian from Hannover and Sassa from Osma represented the Hannover. Another guest was Jaime de Marichalar, who did not want to miss a wedding in which royalty met as he did not in the other links of the blue blood of 2019.
