Princely wedding

A photo from the wedding of Henri d’Orléans, considered a Prince of France by the Orléanists, and duchess Maria Teresa of Württemberg at the royal chapel in Dreux on July 5, 1957. You may notice an altar server in a lace alb girded with a red sash and in a zucchetto of the same colour standing between the young couple and cardinal Maurice Feltin, the Archbishop of Paris, praying at the throne in a cappa magna.
