There’s nothing more exhilarating than a royal wedding. Whenever a member of the royal family plans on tying the knot, the public waits with anticipation, wondering what wedding dress the bride will wear and what tiara she’ll choose to tie her look together. Fans of royal weddings can rejoice because we’re about to see even more show-stopping bridal fashion and lavish decorations this year. Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg is getting ready to say “I do” to Nicolas Bagory in 2023, and the couple has some exciting wedding updates.
On February 20, 2023, the Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg revealed more details about the royal couple's ceremony and reception. The court has announced that the bride and groom's families will attend the civil ceremony at 3:30 p.m., which it previously shared will take place at the Town Hall of the City of Luxembourg on April 22, 2023. After the princess and her fiancé tie the knot, they'll join their families and greet the crowd. “The public is cordially invited to welcome the couple, as well as the Grand Ducal Family, at Place Guillaume, in front of the Town Hall,” the court says. Then, the newlyweds will return to the Grand Ducal Palace via the Rue de La Reine for a reception at 6 p.m., where their families, representatives of the national authorities, and other guests will celebrate with them.
On December 29, 2022, the court shared that the pair will trade vows again in a religious wedding ceremony at the Church of Saint Trophy in Bormes-les-Mimosa, France, on April 29, 2023. The location is a nod to where the princess’s fiancé grew up.
On November 7, 2022, the Grand Ducal Court first revealed the royal couple’s engagement with an Instagram post. “Their Royal Highnesses the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess have the great joy of announcing the engagement of their daughter, Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra, to Mr Nicolas Bagory,” the English translation of the caption said. “The two families join in the happiness of the engaged couple by surrounding them with their affection.”
Along with the message, the court also shared a portrait of the happily engaged couple, who were all smiles with their arms wrapped around one another. In the photo, Alexandra is seen sporting a lilac ensemble with her new bling on display, which appears to include several different stones set on a gold band. On her arm, Bagory is wearing a navy suit paired with a green patterned tie.
The caption also addresses Bagory’s background, sharing that the soon-to-be royal was born on November 11, 1988, grew up in Brittany, studied political science and the classics, and is now working on creating social and cultural projects. Alexandra is Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa’s only daughter and sixth in line to the Luxembourg throne. She’s also an active working member of the royal family and a professional linguist. The future bride has four brothers: Prince Guillaume, Prince Félix, Prince Louis, and Prince Sebastian.
