Belgian Countess Stephanie de Lannoy walking up the aisle of the Cathedral of Luxembourg to marry Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume.  This Elie Saab gown was clearly well thought out!  This is a MASSIVE cathedral and you need an equally MASSIVE train to balance it out.  *Mwah* Goa-geous!

“I feel so sorry for Stephanie of Luxembourg. People all look to her and wonder why she isn’t pregnant yet, it must be so humiliating. I hate the “heir and spare” demand. The Luxembourg succession is fine without Guillaume having a direct heir. The world won’t collapse if he’s succeeded by a brother or a nephew. Stop measuring a princess’s worth by her ability to give birth.“ - Submitted by realgeekyroyalaficionado
