Felix & Claire
HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg, 29, second son of Grand Duke Henri, married Claire Lademacher, 28, in a modest civil ceremony in the bride's hometown of Königstein im Taunus in Germany. She is now legally HRH Princess Claire of Luxembourg. The religious ceremony, with a much larger guest list, will take place on Saturday at the basilica of St Mary Magdalene in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume in France. Congratulations!
An intriguing little fact for monarchist musicians is that the new princess, having been born in Filderstadt, Germany on 21 March 1985, is exactly three hundred years younger than Johann Sebastian Bach (21 Mar 1685 - 28 Jul 1750), if the Julian/Gregorian calendar issue is disregarded. I hope she likes his music.
