Glamorous couple tie the knot in surprise ceremony

By Cassandra Tanti - July 22, 2020

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.

My beloved daughter Eleonore just married Jerome D'Ambrosio, my fantastic new son in law in an intimate ceremony in at the Mairie of Monaco, observing all the restrictions of social distancing, followed by a very cosy lunch that was organised at a beautiful property belonging to a dear old friend in Cap d'antillbes. It was such a lovely day, such a precious moment with so much love in the air! A whole collection of hats was produced my world class milliner Stephen Jones for all of us! The happy couple are "Je ne sais où!" on a short honeymoon before Jerome has to go to Berlin for the next series of Formula E races as the season finally is about to start! Bless them both for all the love that they shared with only direct familly and a few close friends from Monaco. No one flew in, no one came from afar… but the match was made in heaven! @eleonorehabsburg @jeromedambrosio @fhabsburg62 @mareymann @stephenjonesmillinery 📷 @luc_castel Ferdinand and me!
