110 Years Since the Marriage of Prince Victor Napoléon and Princess Clémentine of Belgium

The Newlyweds: Prince Victor Napoléon and Princess Clémentine of Belgium On Monday, 14 November 1910, Prince Victor Napoléon and Princess Clémentine of Belgium were married at Moncalieri, a picturesque village a few miles from Turin. Before the religious rites, the pair were wed in a civil ceremony by the Mayor of Moncalieri at the French Consulate. The religious ceremony uniting the couple took place in the chapel of Moncalieri Castle, built in the fifteenth century, which had been the home of the groom's mother Princess Clotilde of Savoy ever since she returned to Italy following the collapse of the Second French Empire. The Bishop of Biella presided over the Roman Catholic service. The witnesses for Prince Victor were his brother Prince Louis Napoléon and his cousin the Duke of Aosta; the witnesses for Princess Clémentine were Prince Ernest de Ligne, who represented King Albert I of the Belgians, and Archduke Friedrich of Austria. The imperial wedding was attended by the following esteemed personages: Archduke Friedrich of Austria; Princess Marie of Belgium, Countess of Flanders; Princess Stephanie of Belgium, Countess Lonyay; Prince Louis Napoléon; Princess Clotilde of Savoy, Dowager Princess Napoléon; Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, Duke of Aosta; Princess Laetitia of Savoy, Dowager Duchess of Aosta; Prince Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy, Count of Turin; Prince Luigi of Savoy, Duke of the Abruzzi; Prince Umberto of Savoy, Count of Salemi; Prince Tommaso and Princess Isabella of Savoy, Duke and Duchess of Genoa; and Prince Philipp of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Karl of Austria's not so secret divorce.

ICYMI: Embed from Getty Images  Archduke Karl of Austria was recently interviewed about his new book, his 60th birthday, a new woman in his life, and a secret divorce from Baroness Francesca von Thyssen-Bornemisza. He told Krone, an Austrian newspaper:  “Yes, since all of our three children came of age, Francesca and I have been divorced. We have never made this public before." Embed from Getty Images   Karl added:  "Of course it is a very unfortunate affair for me. Because you see that two people living together does not necessarily always have to work. We tried to save the relationship, but all too often the children are the ones who suffer. That is why the well-being of our children has always been the most important thing for me and Francesca. " Oopsies, Karl.  You should have checked with your ex-wife because she spilled the beans in a November 1, 2019 interview with the Financial Times.  "Long gone is the wild party girl who became tabloid fodder in the 1980s. Since those days she married, and has recently divorced amicably from Karl von Habsburg, the grandson of the last Austrian Emperor, Charles I, and father of their three children." In 2019 Francesca resumed the use of her maiden name.https://www.ft.com/content/878f7352-f641-11e9-bbe1-4db3476c5ff0 http://royalmusingsblogspotcom.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-marriage-of-archduke-karl-of.html Embed from Getty Images Archduke Karl's new book. https://www.thalia.de/shop/home/artikeldetails/ID148932866.html He also acknowledged his relationship with Christian Nicolau de Almeida Reid, the youngest daughter of the late Robin Reid and Elsa Andresen Nicolau de Almeida.

The Radziwill Tiara, Formerly Worn by Princess Eugenie of Greece, To Be Sold in the United States

ICYMI: The Radziwill Tiara Photograph (c) Hindman The tiara worn by Princess Eugenie of Greece and Denmark at her wedding to Prince Dominick Radziwiłł will be sold on 7 December 2020 in Chicago by the auction house Hindman. Bidding is currently at $4,400, although it is likely that the tiara will fetch much more due to its historical value. The auction house notes the following about the tiara's condition and composition: "Containing numerous old mine, rose and mixed cut diamonds weighing approximately 18.00-20.00 carats total and seven diamond simulants. Mounted in silver-topped gold. Formerly from the Collection of the House of Habsburg by descent through the the Radziwill family. Worn by Princess Eugenia (daughter of Princess Marie Bonaparte and Prince George of Greece and Denmark) for her 1938 wedding to Prince Dominik Radziwill. The tiara's seven main diamonds have been removed and replaced with paste by a previous owner." The tiara was part of a dispute in 1949 between Princess Eugenie and Prince Dominick after the failure of their marriage, when the prince took a number of jewels (including the Radziwill Tiara and a necklace of Habsburg provenance) from a safety deposit box.  Sources:  HindmanDiamond Pear-shaped Tiara | Wedding Diadem Princess Radziwill
