Noble wedding

Hereditary Prince Carl-Christian zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich and Countess Christina Douglas were married on December 13 in a civil ceremony in Vienna.

The couple got to know each other in Vienna, where Prince Carl-Christian works for a Swedish bank. According to the groom's sister, the religious will take place during a warmer time of the year. Spring perhaps?
The groom is the elder son of Philipp-Rheinard, 8th Prince zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich and Marie Fouché d'Otrante.
Marie's Aunt Margareta Fouchée d'Otrante, married to Gustav, 5th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. Margareta's son, Richard, who is married to Princess Benedikte of Denmark, is Marie's first cousin.
Countess Christina is a cousin of Countess Leonille Douglas, who is married to the Prince of Stolberg-Wernigerode.

Carl Christian and Christina are fourth cousins as both descend from Count Ludwig Douglas.,78596_regid,1_puid,1_pageid,48.html#null
