Adelaide, on the other hand, is not: she's the daughter of Philippe Drapé-Frisch, a French diplomat who moved his family across Europe throughout her childhood. The 22-year-old student met her fiance at Jeunesse Lumière, a Catholic school where the pair spent a gap year between high school and college.

The young couple were married first in a civil ceremony at the Hôtel de Ville of Nancy, France on Friday followed by a religious service at the Basilique Saint-Epvre de Nancy on Saturday attended by over 1,000 guests.

The bride wore a seasonally-appropriate white gown with a fur collar and cuffs designed by French couturier Diane Lelys while the groom's mother wore a royal repeat: a blue suit first worn in 2000 by her mother, Grand Duchess Joséphine, at her brother Henri's investiture ceremony.
