Anglo-Dalmatian Nuptials

Vatican wedding for British royal

Nov. 06 ( - A member of the British royal family married a Croatian princess on November 4, in a ceremony held at the Vatican.

Lord Nicholas Windsor, son of the Duke and Duchess of Kent, married Paola Doimi of Frankopan, in the little church of St. Stephen of Abyssinia, inside Vatican City.

Lord Nicholas Windsor, a convert to Catholicism, wished to be married at the Vatican as a sign of "his strong religious conviction," said a spokesman for the groom. His bride is a member of one of the leading Catholic families of Dalmatia.

The marriage is the first wedding of a British royal at the Vatican since the Reformation. Queen Elizabeth II gave her blessing to the union but did not attend the ceremony. She has agreed to attend a post-wedding reception, to be held at the palace of St. James in January 2007.

If I were from Dalmatia, I would wear black and white.

Apart from her immodest dress, I'd say that guy got the better end of the bargain looks-wise :-)
