Her Imperial and Royal Highness Archduchess Eleonore of Austria married Jérôme d'Ambrosio today, 20 July. The couple were united in a civil ceremony in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The celebration happened in an intimate circle of family and friends. The wedding between Eleonore of Austria and Jérôme d'Ambrosio had been planned rather differently. Covid-19 and related legal restrictions have made it impossible to have a formal wedding as had been planned for this year. The church wedding in a bigger circle will be celebrated as soon as the pandemic restrictions are lifted. Archduchess Gloria acted as the witness for her sister Eleonore, and Olivia d'Ambrosio acted as the witness for her brother Jérôme. After the wedding, the couple was joined by a few more friends for a celebratory lunch.
