France 2 Will Not Broadcast the Wedding * Updated With Good News

RTL reports that France 2 had decided not to broadcast the wedding of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy. Budget cutbacks are given as the reason for the decision.


Maybe, just maybe the wedding will be broadcasted on France 2 after all. Apparently, there hasn't been anything communicated about a cancellation yet. Us Luxaholics are currently looking for confirmation or denial by Stéphane Bern, the go to guy for all things royal at France 2 and would have been reporter of the wedding.

But there came other good news our way: the wedding will in any case by shown online by Luxembourgish newspaper L'essentiel. Though I have never read a definite confirmation, I am  certain that Luxembourgish RTL will show the wedding. In Belgium the wedding will be broadcast on RTL-TV1 with Christian Cannuyer acting as commentator. At this point, a broadcast in Germany seems unlikely though not totally out of question. (In case you are German and want to see the wedding, sending a nice e-mail to the channels in question will definetely help the cause.)
