HRH Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Sibilla Weiller
September 24, 1994
In October this year, the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg will marry his Belgian countess fiancé, Stéphanie de Lannoy. Today’s much requested gown comes from a wedding which has a few things in common with our upcoming one, apart from the grand ducal family ties. Both brides come from a privileged background: Sibilla Weiller’s father, Paul-Annik Weiller, was a successful international businessman; her mother, Olimpia Torlonia di Civitella-Cesi, is the daughter of Infanta Beatriz of Spain (these are the same Torlonias now in possession of Ena’s Aquamarine Tiara, if you recall). And obviously, both this groom and our upcoming one are named Guillaume: this Prince Guillaume is the youngest son of Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte of Luxembourg (and he is an uncle of the Hereditary Grand Duke).

Do you say yay or nay to Sibilla's giant ruffle?
