the wedding of Countess Margherita of Arco-Zinneburg and Charles Green

Countess Margherita of Arco-Zinneburg married Charles Douglas Green on March 19 at the Asam Basilica of St Margaretha in Altenmarkt, near Deggendorf, Bavaria.

Royal Musings broke the news of their engagement in December.

The Roman Catholic service was officiated by Father Alessandro Prince of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies, and St. Margaretha's priest, Father Emanuel Hartmann.

Father Alessandro, a member of the Legionaries of Christ, is the son of Prince Casimir of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, and a first cousin of the bride's mother, Archduchess Maria Beatrice of Austria.   The bride's father, Count Riprand of Arco-Zinneburg died last August.

Due to Covid concerns, the guest list was limited to about 70 people, including the bride's uncle, Prince  Lorenz of Belgium and his wife, Princess Astrid, younger sister of King Philippe of the Belgians,  Prince Napoleon, who is married to the bride's sister, Countess Olympia. Princess Adelheid of Liechtenstein and the Hereditary Princess of Leiningen.

The PNP newspaper, which reported on the wedding also wrote that members of the British nobility attended the wedding.  One can presume that these guests included two of the groom's half-sisters, the Duchess of Roxeburghe and Alice Fermor-Hesketh.

The wedding reception was held at Schloss Moos.

The couple's civil marriage took place on March 17 at the town hall in Moos.  The mayor, Alexander Sacher, officiated at this wedding.

Countess Margherita and Mr. Green, a contemporary of the Duke of Cambridge at Eton, will live in London, where they both work.

The PNP, a local German newspaper, published an article today about the wedding, with one photograph.  I have been told that the German weekly magazine, Bunte, will have a report in the next issue.
