Austria’s Archduke Alexander Kisses New Bride Countess Natacha Roumiantzoff-pachkevitch

Archduke Alexander of Austria has tied the knot with Countess Natacha Roumiantzoff-Pachkevitch in a lavish ceremony in Belgium. The Archduke, the son of Archduke Carl-Christian of Austria and Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg, and his bride celebrated their nuptials at the Eglise Saint Pierre de Belœil on September 30.

The bride, who is descended from Russian nobility, was the picture of glamour in a long sleeved white gown, boasting a deep plunge neck. Her elegant frock also featured a gentle A-line shaped skirt, as well as ornate decorate waistband.

Bride Natacha paired her white dress with a long veil, which she wore with a tiara.  Her hair adornments sat atop a half-down, half up to, with her dark blonde tresses tumbling in loose curls past her shoulders.  She wore little make-up, pairing a fresh, dewy base with natural blush and lips, and very light eyeliner.

Opting for a subtle, but elegant bouquet, she carried a small white bunch of flowers, featuring lilies among other blooms.  Her beau was equally dapper, opting for traditional tails in navy, which he wore over a waistcoat.

He opted for a tie – in stripes of navy and maroon – and completed the outfit with grey striped trousers.  Images show the happy couple beaming after the ceremony, with the groom even raising his new wife’s hand to his lips at one point, to kiss her. 

Following the ceremony, they enjoyed a reception at the  Chateau de Belœil – which is the Seat of the Princes of Ligne.

A number of prestigious guests attended the couple’s glittering Belgium wedding.  Among them were relatives, and royalty, with members of the Habsburg Royal Families in attendance among others.

Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg were among those on the guest list, alongside Prince Joachim of Belgium, Prince Jean of Luxembourg and Countess Diane de Nassau. Also at the event were Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie among others. 

The event come days after the death of Archduke Alexander’s grandmother Archduchess Yolande. Her funeral was held at the same church, the Eglise Saint Pierre, just a few days ago.
