Archduchess of Austria Eleonore von Habsburg has married Belgian racing driver Jérôme d’Ambrosio in an intimate ceremony in Monaco.
The glamorous young royal, who also has the title of Princess of Hungary, Bohemia and Croatia, wore an off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera wedding gown to wed her handsome beau on Monday 2Oth July. They were joined by their parents and the Mayor of Monaco, Georges Marsan, for the civil ceremony at the registry office, while there are plans for a bigger celebration once the current situation improves.
The couple first met three years ago on a flight from London to Nice and announced their engagement in March 2019.
26-year-old Eleonore is the daughter of Archduke Karl von Habsburg and Baroness Francesca von Thyssen-Bornemisza. Her great-grandparents were the last Emperor and Empress of Austria, Charles I of Austria and Zita of Bourbon-Parma. She has modelled for Dolce & Gabbana and works as a jewellery designer.
Jérôme d’Ambrosio, aged 35, is a Belgian Formula E racing driver for the Indian team Mahindra Racing and has three wins under his belt, with multiple podiums and two pole positions. Jerome also works closely with Hugo Boss and Julius Baer as a brand ambassador.

Monaco’s Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women's Rights has launched a new chapter of its equality campaign, this time focusing on sports and leisure activities.
The National Council has passed a divisive law which requires certain workers, from care staff to speech therapists, to be fully vaccinated in order to continue working in their field.
The European Commission has announced that, as of the end of August, 70% of the adult population of the European Union has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
In what is a very rare sight in Monaco, hundreds of people took to the streets on Saturday to protest against the mandatory health pass in the Principality.
