One thought on “Wedding Ball of Infanta Pilar, 1967

  1. The Infanta Pilar looked very excellent during her pre-wedding gala, and her future husband the Duke of Estrada as well. They both look so young-and so thin! By all accounts it was a happy marriage that sadly ended with the Duke’s early death aged 56. The Infanta still hosts family reunions in her house, very well attended by the vast majority of the Spanish Royal family.
