Monday Tidbits for October 1: Another Wedding...

Shockingly enough, we have more wedding business on our hands:

--Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth-Mills, formerly Prince Nicholas of Romania, and Alina Maria Binder held their religious wedding in Romania this weekend. The couple were married civilly last year. The bride stated in a previous interview that she would use a designer from Bucharest for her dress, which includes hand embroidery in the Romanian tradition. Nicholas is the grandson of the late King Michael I and at one point in time held a place in the line of succession to the (defunct) throne as well as the title of prince, but his succession rights and title were withdrawn in 2015. Family relations are strained; neither his mother, Princess Elena, nor his aunt, Margarita, Custodian of the Crown, were at the wedding. [YouTube]

--The Earl and Countess of Wessex paid a visit to Ireland, giving me a chance to see the gorgeous color of this repeated Emilia Wickstead dress again. The Countess of Wessex Blog has full coverage of day 1 here and here, and day 2 here.
Royal Family

--Queen Paola was brought home to Belgium after suffering what the palace said was a mild stroke while on vacation in Italy last week. She's said to be recovering quickly and is already home from the hospital. [RTBF]

--And finally, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie joined Queen Margrethe last week for the opening of a new exhibition showcasing some of her fairy tale designs. That one would be fun to see.
