Prince Felix of Luxembourg has married his long-time love Claire Lademacher in south eastern France.
Grand dukes and duchesses, princes and princesses and a smattering of arch dukes lined up at the Basilique Sainte Marie-Madeleine in Saint-Maximin-La-Sainte-Baume to greet the couple.
On Wednesday, Prince Felix, 29, and Claire Lademacher, 28, wed in a civil ceremony in her hometown of Frankfurt, Germany. The bride opted for an understated look – choosing a simple white peplum sheath dress, aquamarine drop earrings, and Ferragamo bow heels.
The ceremony was an intimate affair which included Prince Felix’s parents – the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg – as well as his four siblings and their respective families.
The bride wore a traditional wedding dress as she married the second-in-line to the Luxembourg throne in front of 350 guests.
The groom’s proud parents Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Theresa beamed as Prince Felix arrived for the ceremony.
His mother posed with her son wearing a matching fuchsia coat, hat and shoes as she arrived to see the third of her five children marry.
Both of them waved to the crowds who had gathered in the Provencal town of Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume.
Prince Guilaume, Princess Stephanie, Prince Louis, Princess Tessy, sister Princess Alexandra and Prince Sébastien of Luxembourg made up the large party of Félix’s family on his big day.
Hello magazine reported that Princess Alexandra took her style inspiration from fellow European Kate Middleton.
She wore a sky blue version of the teal Jenny Packham dress that the Duchess of Cambridge sported at an Olympics gala ball in 2012.
Felix’s brother Prince Guillaume arrived with his wife Prince Stephanie, 11 months after their own lavish wedding at the Cathederal of Our Lady of Luxembourg.
Leading the other European royal guests was Prince Albert of Monaco’s nephew Pierre Casiraghi and his girlfriend Beatrice Borromeo. They were joined by Archduke Christoph and Archduchess Adelaide and Princess Margaretha and Prince Nikolaus Of Liechtenstein.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds were expected to set off on honeymoon reportedly still a secret from Claire Lademacher.
“The day after our wedding we will depart on our honeymoon, and I will personally take care of the organization,” Prince Felix told a local newspaper according to Hello magazine.
“It is tradition in our family that the destination of the honeymoon is a surprise for the bride, that is only revealed at the last minute before departure…”
Claire and Prince Felix reportedly met while studying at the Collège Alpin International Beau Soleil in Switzerland. The couple announced their engagement in December.
