Benedikte and Anne-Marie of Denmark, the two younger daughters of Frederik IX of Denmark and Ingrid of Sweden. Their elder sister Margrethe later became Queen of Denmark. Anne Marie also married Sophia’s brother Constantine in 1964.

Could you imagine the security involved at something like this today, when not only the bride and groom are royal, but also all the wedding party and all their families? Do any of you think we will ever see the wedding of two HRH again?

Also at the wedding of Sophia and JC:

King Paul and several European princes served as crown bearers during the Orthodox service. Besides Paul, the crown bearers were:
Crown Prince Constantine of Greece, Sophia’s younger brother.
Michael of Greece, Sophia’s cousin.
Amedeo, Duke of Aosta, a distant cousin of Juan Carlos and Sophia.
Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden, a distant cousin of Sophia (and of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh).
Victor Emmanuel, Prince of Naples, son of Umberto II of Italy.
Don Marco Alfonso Torlonia, 6th Prince of Civitella-Cesi, a cousin of Juan Carlos.
Christian of Hanover, Sophia’s uncle.
Carlos of the Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria, a distant cousin of Juan Carlos.


So at this side two rivals (for the headship of the Italian Royal House/ Savoy House): Victor Emmanuel and Amedeo. But I wonder if they were already rivals at the time of Sophia and JC's wedding.

Carlos of the Bourbon-Two Sicilies was one of the 2 claimants for the headship Bourbon-Two Sicilies House

Sybilla of Luxembourg (née Weiller) is through her mother Donna Olimpia related to Don Marco Alfonso Torlonia (= her uncle).

I wasn't aware of the men's side....at least who had which role at the JC & Sophia wedding.

With regard to the bridesmaid side I often had to think about Irene of the Netherlands. Being a bridesmaid to Sophia who married a claimant to the Spanish throne. While some years later she herself married another, rivalling claimant to the Spanish throne.

Apart from the fact that None of the bridesmaid dress seemed to actually fit the girl, that style is lovely and could be worn today with the very en trend pleated chiffon skirt.
TBF, if ever there was a couple that chose: "close your eyes and think of the dynasty" over love or anything, it is most likely Sophie and JC.

Still they look happy (together) at some of those pictures....

About 40 years later,  Vittorio  Emmanuel punched Amedeo after a private dinner on the evening of F & L's wedding  at Zarzuela .Q Anne Marie assisted Amedeo and K JC is reported to have stormed: "Never again!" I suppose QS must  have shown the same tight-lipped expression that night.

Yes. The day Caroline Hannover had to walk all the way to the cathedral on her own because Ernest felt unwell.
