Is there any specific connection between the groom and/or his parents and Duke of Edinburgh?

Prince Hassan, brother of the late King Hussein, and Princess Sarvath, are good friends with the British royals, and a selection of European royal houses ...like the Badens.

Prince Ludwig & Princess Marianne of Baden appear in the photo. Prince Ludwig is standing behind Princess Marilene & Prince Maurits of Orange-Nassau. Princess Marianne is standing behind Princess Sibilla & Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg. Princess Irene of Greece stands between Princess Marianne & Prince Ludwig. I believe that the two females standing either side of Prince Louis & Princess Tessy are Princess Sophie of Baden or Princess Aglaë of Baden (daughters of Prince Ludwig & Princess Marianne).

It’s lovely to see so many Euopean Royal Families attending the wedding; especially the Duke of Edinburgh.
