Aga Khan Wedding

If you are a regular follower of all kinds of royalty, you are probably all too aware that the previous weekend (the one before the one that ended yesterday that is) had some kind of a royal and royal-related wedding frenzy going on. In Sweden Princess Christina's son Gustaf Magnuson married Vicky Andrén, in Monaco Andrea Casiraghi tied the knot with Tatiana Santo Domingo and, as reported on here due to its guests, Prince Muhammad Ali of Egypt married Princess Noal Zaher of Afghanistan in Istanbul. In addition, Prince Rahim Aga Khan, son of the 49th and current Imam of Nizari Ismailism, Aga Khan IV, tied the knot with US model Kendra Spears in Geneva, Switzerland in relatively quiet fashion.

As quiet is not necessarily their fashion, the couple had a big bash to celebrate their nuptials at Manhattan’s Museum of Natural History on Saturday night. Among an array of Hollywood stars and supermodels, one name on the guest list especially caught our attention, Prince Vincent of Liechtenstein. "Vincent who?", you might rightfully ask. You can now either go and check the family's genealogy (spoiler: you won't find him there) or just read on.

Since his Adriana Lima days, Prince Wenzeslaus (or Wenceslas, if you prefer the French spelling of his name), the second of the three sons of Prince Philipp and Princess Isabelle, has for some strange reason often been described as Prince Vincent in the US media. Common explanation is that he goes by the name himself (which would be kind of weird but who knows), that the European media call him that (which they don't), or that they simply don't know how to spell Wenzeslaus (and who can blame them). Anyhow... The idea that Prince Wenzeslaus was among the guests isn't too far fetched as members of the Aga Khan family have attended at a bunch of events of his family in the past and he also knows a supermodel or two.
