Elisabetta Rosboch von Wolkenstein’s title revealed
Finally after 1 year of marriage, the Belgian Court has opened up about the title of Prince Amedeo’s wife. Prince Amedeo and the Italian beauty Elisabetta “Lili” Rosboch von Wolkenstein married on July 5 2014 in Rome, Italy. Before they married, Prince Amedeo didn’t officially ask the permission of his uncle the King to marry Lili, therefore Prince Amedeo is no longer in line to the throne. His future children won’t be either. Sources close to the court have confirmed this and well known Belgian royal watchers confirmed this as well. Because of this, Lili won’t receive the title Princess of Belgium.
So what title has Lili received then? Sources close to the court and royal watchers confirm Lili has received the title: Princess Amedeo of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria and Princess of Hungary. Her highest title in Belgium will be Archduchess of Austria because it is forbidden to have foreign titles (Princess of Hungary) according to the Belgian law. Prince Amedeo’s father Prince Lorenz is head of the family Austria-Este.
Note: There is no official statement from the Belgian Royal court confirming these titles but there are many reasons to assume this are her real titles. Every Belgian newspaper writes about this and it’s not speculation, many of these things are written in the Belgian law. The court won’t make an official statement about this.
Tiara Name: Queen Elisabeth’s Diamond Bandeau Owning Family: Belgian Royal Family Last Worn: by Elisabetta Maria Rosboch von Wolkenstein on July 5, 2014 Short History: This tiara features a diamond Art Deco design with a row of interlocking diamond shapes threaded with a small wreath of leaves at the center. It’s a low profile bandeau tiara that does have a certain amount of flexibility and can also be worn as a necklace, in a choker style. The tiara belonged to Queen Elisabeth (1876 – 1965), wife of King Albert I. Elisabeth is said to have given the tiara to her daughter-in-law, Queen Astrid (1905-1935), the first wife of Leopold III, to celebrate the birth of her third child, but Astrid tragically died not long after in a car accident. Her husband remarried, and the tiara was also worn by his second wife, Princess Lilian (1916 - 2002). The third child of Queen Astrid and King Leopold III, the one whose birth reportedly inspired the gift of this tiara to Astrid, was Prince Albert, known today as King Albert II. So it’s quite appropriate that the tiara was next given to Albert’s wife, Paola. She loaned this tiara to her daughter-in-law Mathilde to wear on her wedding day as well as her grandson Amedeo’s wife Elisabetta Maria Rosboch von Wolkenstein.
The dress worn by Elisabetta Rosboch von Wolkenstein today was designed by Italian designer, Valentino. The bride is also wearing the Queen Elisabeth’s Diamond Bandeau, the tiara was also worn by the current queen on her wedding day as well!
