Biography

Marriage

On 12 May 1965, at Dreux, France, Princess Anne married Carlos of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria, one of the two claimants to be Head of the Royal House of Two Sicilies.[1][3] Prince Carlos is the son of Alfonso of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria (1901–1964) and Princess Alice of Bourbon-Parma (born 1917). Though they had known each other since childhood, their romantic relationship began in Athens, in 1962, at the wedding of the future King Juan Carlos of Spain to Princess Sophia of Greece, at which Princess Anne was a bridesmaid.[3] The new Duke and Duchess of Calabria decided to live in Spain.[3]
