The Wedding Ball of Duke Philipp of Württemberg and Duchess Marie-Caroline in Bavaria at Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich hosted by the bride’s grandfather, the Duke of Bavaria, on this day in 1991, ahead of their Religious Wedding at Schloss Tegernsee and following their Civil Wedding at Schloss Altshausen. From L-R: The Duke of Württemberg (in the Order of the Golden Fleece), The Duchess of Württemberg (wearing the Württemberg Sapphire Tiara), Duke Philipp of Württemberg,  Duchess Marie-Caroline (in the Diamond Rosette Tiara) Prince Max, Duke in Bavaria, Princess Elisabeth, Duchess in Bavaria (wearing the Diamond and Pearl Tiara), and the Duke of Bavaria. Other guests included Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte of Luxembourg (wearing the Emerald Peacock Tiara), Infanta Elena of Spain (in the Prussian Diamond Tiara), and the Countess of Paris (wearing the Chaumet Pearl Tiara) among a plethora of European Royalty and Nobility.

There was also another Ball at Schloss Tegernsee on the eve of the Wedding, at which the Duke and Princess Diane, Duchess of Württemberg (wearing her Ruby Tiara) were pictured with Prince Max, Duke in Bavaria and Princess Elisabeth, Duchess in Bavaria (wearing the Bavarian Pearl and Diamond Floral Tiara), who hosted the Ball.
