Today, the Prince and Princess de Ligne celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary. On 10 March 1981, Prince Michel de Ligne and Princess Eleonora of Orléans and Bragança married at Rio de Janeiro. The groom was the son of Prince Antoine de Ligne and Princess Alix of Luxembourg. The bride was the daughter of Prince Pedro Henrique of Orléans and Bragança and Princess Maria of Bavaria. Fourth cousins once removed, Michel de Ligne (b.1951) and Eleonora of Orléans and Bragança (b.1953) both descend from King Francesco I of the Two Sicilies.
