In case you haven't had your fill of royal weddings this year, fear not. Another princess bride tied the knot this weekend for your royal wedding viewing pleasure. And while it was significantly smaller than Meghan Markle's nuptials to Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie's fall wedding to Jack Brooksbank, this bride's wedding was just as stunning.
On Saturday, Germany's Duchess Sophie of Württemberg tied the knot with French aristocrat Maximilien of Andigné in a small ceremony at Saint-Quirin church in the Castle of Tegernsee, near the Bavarian Alps in Germany.
The bride is a descendant of the former royal family of the Kingdom of Württemberg near Bavaria, and she is also related to the Orléanist claimant to the French throne, Prince Henri, Count of Paris.
On the big day, the bride arrived at the church with her father, Prince Philip of Württemberg. Philip is the son of Duke Carl Württemberg, the House of Württemberg's patriarch. Per royal wedding tradition, the duchess's processional included a slew of smartly dressed children, including three bridesmaids dressed in white and wearing red and black belts. A handful of pageboys were also present at the ceremony, wearing traditional black and blue morning coats.
The bride stunned in a simple white wedding dress with three quarter–length sleeves, complete with an intricate lace veil and stunning diamond tiara—a strikingly similar look to Meghan Markle's May 19 wedding dress—and carried a bouquet of bright pink roses and baby's breath. Following the ceremony, the couple and their bridal party marched down the street in a celebratory parade, which included dozens of onlookers and confetti.
