The Wedding of the Year

Today, Sevilla (and all of Spain and beyond) is all atwitter because this beautiful woman got married right here in the city I now call home.

85-year-old Spanish Duchess of Alba, full name María del Rosario Cayetana Paloma Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Fernanda Teresa Francisca de Paula Lourdes Antonia Josefa Fausta Rita Castor Dorotea Santa Esperanza Fitz-James Stuart, Silva, Falcó y Gurtubay (or just plain Cayetana or the Duquesa of Alba), married a 61-year-old. Apparently she had to pay each of her six children millions of dollars and mansions to approve the marriage. The gorgeous couple will live in a palace here in Sevilla. Thank goodness I’ll be so close to them.

Oh Spain.

Hope I didn’t scar you for life with that photo.

  1. Good Morning! What is the time difference between here and there? So ironic that I had just read this lovely story about an hour ago, in the paper! I am always keeping an eye open for events happening where you and Cari are Nice that her children approved of the marriage! It is cold and raining here but we are due for a hot weekend! Unusual weather again. Love you!,

    do not talk that way about the most precious beauty to ever grace the iberian penninsula!!! i only say this because i really, really want to meet her (and she and my suegra participate in the same charity!!) and because she was, according to all acounts, the most beautiful woman in all of spain in her prime.

    I’m sorry…but that picture just makes me scared to grow old. I admittedly just read Cat’s comment and proceeded to Google “Duquesa de Alba joven” and she wasn’t bad. Don’t know what’s happened between now and then but yikes…and did you see her stylish wedding dress??

    So this was the subject matter at the dinner table with my in-laws last night – several of them actually really think this could be love (for the guy) because she must be such an interesting person. Seriously.
