On August 16, Princess Amélia de Orléans e Bragança, daughter of Prince Antônio and his wife née Princess Christine de Ligne and thus granddaughter of Grand Duke Jean's sister Princess Alix, married Alexander James Spearman at the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Carmo in Rio de Janeiro. Among those who attended the Brazilian nuptials were Princess Anunciata and Princess Astrid, daughters of Princess Margaretha and Prince Nikolaus, as well as Princess Charlotte, daughter of Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla.

Several other Luxembourg descendants, such as Princess Xenia of Croÿ and Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, great-grandchildren of Princess Antonia of Luxembourg, or Countess Sophie de Nicolay and her sons Count François and Count Guy as well as Prince Michel de Ligne, his wife Princess Eleonora and their children Princess Alix and Prince Henri (all of them descendants of Princess Alix of Luxembourg), were also among the guests of the wedding.

Lastly because many people are always interested in these matters, Princess Amélia's dress was a creation of British designer Emilia Wickstead and her diamond tiara came from her mother's family, the House of Ligne. For more guests and information, have a look at The Royal Resource.
