A ‘royal’ bride with a 19th century tiara
September 2021 has been one of the most prolific months when it comes to weddings, and it is only necessary to analyze the last two weekends to find the best wedding dress inspiration. In the long list of known couples who have said “yes, I do” these weeks, the link between the princess Maria Astrid from Liechtenstein and businessman Ralph Worthington, heir to Metropolitan Oil, has been one of the most exclusive. The Tuscan town of Orbetello hosted this religious ceremony for which the youngest daughter of Prince Nicholas of Liechtenstein and Margaret of Luxembourg, cousin of the kings of Belgium, chose a precious ivory dress with a subtle ‘V’ neckline that left part of the shoulders in view. The overskirt and the embroidery describing diamonds throughout the design achieved a very special look, with historicist airs, which very elegantly outlined the princess’s body.
Despite the personal dress, what most attracted the attention of Maria Astrid from Liechtenstein’s wedding look was the tiara that fixed the long veil. It’s about the diadema Kinsky Honeysuckle, a jewel with plant motifs made of diamonds, silver and gold dating from the 19th century. As we said, the story says that it was a wedding gift that Ferdinand Bonaventura, seventh Prince Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau, gave to his wife, Princess María Josefa of Liechtenstein, in 1870. Tatiana of Liechtenstein and Angela Brown, wife of Prince Maximilian , they also carried it in their links, in 1999 and 2000 respectively. More than two decades later, Maria Astrid from Liechtenstein combined this stunning tiara with simple teardrop earrings, the same ones her mother wore when she married Prince Nicholas and like his sister María Anunciata who, just a few weeks ago, became the wife of businessman Emanuele Musini.
