Wedding of Prince Henri, Count of Clermont and Duchess Marie-Thérèse of Württemberg, 1957

The Wedding of Prince Henri, Count of Clermont, son of the Count of Paris and Princess Isabelle of Orléans-Braganza, and Duchess Marie-Thérèse of Württemberg (wearing the Württemberg Small Diamond Tiara), daughter of the Duke of Württemberg and Archduchess Rosa of Austria, at the Chapelle Royale de Dreux on this day in 1957, the largest royal event in France since the Wedding of Queen Amélie of Portugal in 1886, which had forced the Orléans Royal Family into exile until 1950. The couple had five children, including the current Count of Paris, before legally separating in 1977, divorcing in 1984, and the marriage being canonically annulled in 2009.

Royal Guests and Relatives in attendance included King Paul and Queen Frederica of Greece, King Umberto II of Italy, Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain, Tsar Simeon and Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria, the Princes and Princess of Liechtenstein, Crown Princess Beatrix of The Netherlands, Hereditary Grand Duke Jean and Hereditary Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte of Luxembourg, the Archduke and Archduchess of Austria-Este, and the Princess of Hanover.
