Princess Salome sent me a depesche: „Share my luck, I just got engaged to Prince Achille Murat“.

I was told how the whole thing came.
Last winter, Empress Eugenie and Princess Ekaterina Dadiani had already considered it, and the matter had been brought to a close last week.

The emperor, Napoleon III, took it upon himself to give his nephew 50000 francs of Apanage annually, which harmonized excellently with the same income of the bride, and furthermore to pay his debts. Well, debts…that the young man was one of the most wasteful men of life in Paris, was well known in the city, among the diamonds, the then so celebrated – beautiful Helena, Hortense Schneider, was many a piece of jewellery laid at her feet by Prince Achille Murat. The whole marriage was arranged by one of the relatives on both sides, and she had only seen her groom three or four times, but in those circles, especially in France, it is customary for marriages to be arranged this way. She was downright in love with the young man and was looking forward to becoming Princess Achille Murat >>

Mary Princess of Orange | England | Princess Mary’s Diamond Brooch

Mary Princess of Orange | England | Princess Mary's Diamond Brooch
Mary Princess of Orange | England | Princess Mary’s Diamond Brooch
Princess Mary was born on 4 November 1631 at St. James’s Palace, the eldest daughter of King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria.
On 2 May 1641, at the age of nine,  the kings daughter was married to William II, son of Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange and Amalia von Solms, at the Chapel Royal, Whitehall Palace.

 Mary is shown wearing her wedding ring and the large diamond brooch given to her by her husband on 3 May 1641, the day after their marriage. A large pearl necklace and costly pearls in her hair, like a ribbon. A gem setted bracelet on the left.
Look at her spectacular coral gown, decorated with silver thread trim along its border, is thought to be similar to that worn for her wedding, rather than the cloth of silver-gold she wears.  The apparent weight of the fabric, falling in broad, heavy folds, along with the bright highlights along the creases, suggest the fabric may have been cloth of silver. Shimmering highlights, applied in swift, cross-hatched strokes, were used as a form of shorthand by artists, mimicking the lustre of metallic threads as the textile caught the light. In accordance with the fashion of the period, her gown is open down the front, revealing a stiffened stomacher across the chest and a matching skirt beneath.
The ribbons, which would at one time have been functional, lacing the skirt and stomacher to the bodice, were applied purely as adornment. One ribbon, however has been pinned or stitched flat to disguise the seam between the bodice and skirt.
The Princess’s brooch, the string of pearls and ribbons on her shimmering dress are rendered with remarkable precision and delicacy, characteristics that defined the artist’s finest late works.

She was baptized on the same day by William Laud, Bishop of London. Mary remained in England for a year after the marriage, eventually following her husband to Holland in 1642, accompanied by her mother and a train of four hundred courtiers. In March 1647, William II succeeded his father as Stadholder of the Dutch Republic and Mary became Princess of Orange. Her new position at court, however, caused conflict with her mother-in-law. The ill health which Frederick Henry had suffered between 1640 and his death in 1647 had meant that Amalia had effectively ruled as Regent and Stadtholder during this time. Mary’s appearance at court seems to have represented something of a challenge to her mother-in-law, with one of Mary’s ladies allegedly saying that ‘it was time the princess should run the country’, since Amalia had done so for so long.  Source: christie’s
