What Félix and Claire Have to Say

"It is a tradition that the wedding is celebrated in the bride's native. We wanted to respect this beautiful tradition, which, I think, is also a sign of respect to my future in-laws. Moreover, the history of Königstein is directly linked with that of the Grand Ducal Family which increased the symbolic power of the choice.", says Prince Félix in relation to chosing Königstein im Taunus as the place for his civil wedding to German Claire Lademacher. If you would like to know more about the town and the history connecting the Grand Ducal Family to it, have a look on the website of the cour; it's handily available in French, German and English.

The future bride whereas gave a comment on why they chose the Basilique de Sainte Marie-Madeleine in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume as the place for the religious wedding. "We both have wonderful memories of summer holidays spent in the south of France, both at the property of my parents near Lorgues and with my future in-laws as well as our respective families and friends at Cabasson. The idea of getting married in the Provence came naturally as we wanted to add to those precious moments with our loved ones.", says Claire Lademacher. Again, more information about the basilica is available in French and English on the website of the cour.

For the full interview have a look here.

In difference to what was reported by the media earlier, it will be the Archbishop of Luxembourg Jean-Claude Hollerich who will officiate the religious wedding. The boys choir "Pueri cantores", the Orchestre de Chambre du Conservatoire de la Ville de Luxembourg as well as the organists of the local basilica and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Luxembourg will arrange the music for the occasion.
