Princess Maria Laura and her father Prince Lorenz of Belgium arrived together to the wedding ceremony at Saint Michael and Saint Gudula Cathedral in Brussels.

After she got out of the car, she waved to the crowds.

Maria wore the Savoy-Aosta Diamond Tiara, and her dress was designed by Vivienne Westwood.

“A dress with great historical influence,” Herve Verhoosel, the couple’s spokesperson, told Dutch media. “The corset and neckline are inspired by fashionable women of the 18th century and the fabric that drapes over the shoulders, drapes and falls from the hip is reminiscent of ancient Greek statues.”

The dress featured a 4-meter train, “especially created for Maria Laura, to create the drama and presence needed for the cathedral,” per her spokesperson.

Carrying her train were Princess Marie-Astrid, her cousin Princess Olympia Napoleon, her sister-in-law Princess Elisabetta and her sister Princess Luisa.
