Queen Elena "is personally supervising" Princess Yolanda's wedding plans, the New York Times reports today. The king and queen will host a reception for members of the diplomatic corps on April 7, two days before the wedding, where the diplomats will present greetings "in the names of their respective governments."
Although Princess Yolanda and her fiance, Count Calvi di Bergolo, have asked for no presents, it is understood that the diplomatic corp "are making plans for a present."
Another large reception is planned for the evening of April 8, where members of the Italian aristocracy will be invited, along with guests from the government and military. The civil wedding will take place the next morning at 10 a.m., at the Palace, and the religious wedding will follow a half hour later in the Pauline chapel in the Quirinal.
