One of the most beau­ti­ful homes in Italy, Lake Como’s 16th-cen­tury Villa Sola

typ­i­cally elab­o­rate re­cent round-the-world hon­ey­moon, the cou­ple were taken to a Ro­man palace by horse-drawn car­riage on Valen­tine’s

Day, where a cast of more than 100 ac­tors, ac­tresses, ma­gi­cians and jesters were on hand to amuse the duo. There­after came a meet­ing with a (pre­sum­ably be­nign) pi­rate aboard their su­pery­acht in the Bri­tish Vir­gin Is­lands, the dis­cov­ery of Snow White and her seven dwarfs in Colorado and a re­turn to the deca­dent days of Louis XIV in a French chateau, with cou­ple and cast in pe­riod cos­tume.

Given the pomp of her up­bring­ing and the pres­tige of a Wind­sor Cas­tle wed­ding, Princess Eu­ge­nie is per­haps one of the few for whom such an or­ches­tra­tion might fall short of pre­vi­ous fam­ily gath­er­ings, but for any­one else with suf­fi­cient money to spend, there is no lack of tour op­er­a­tors on standby to turn their wildest dreams into re­al­ity.
