Prince Guillaume and Stephanie de Lannoy
A host of royals from around the world have been invited to see Luxembourg's Prince Guillaume wed Countess Stephanie de Lannoy.
Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, King Harald and Queen Sonia of Norway, Queen Beatrix of Holland and Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan are all on the provisional guest list for the spectacular two-day celebration for the couple's nuptials on October 19 and 20.
Norway's future king and queen, Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Mette Marit, will also attend the spectacle to see Europe's last single royal heir tie the knot.
But one of the biggest journeys to attend the wedding will be made by Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan and while Danish royals Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Mary are yet to appear on the guest list, it is still thought they could attend as more names are set to be added to the list.
Several Luxembourg royals such as Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Prince Felix
Prince Louis and Princess Tessy, Princess Alexandra and Prince Sebastian will also don their best clothes for the occasion.
Following the couple's nuptials, bride-to-be Stephanie will be granted citizenship of the country.
Stephanie and Guillaume got behind their country at the London Olympics this summer as they held a blue, white and red Luxembourg scarf and flag aloft at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park, East Stratford, when they cheered on Laurent Carnol and Raphael Stacchiotti during their breaststroke and individual medley heats respectively.
