A Special Thank You, to Mr. Benjie Castrillo for sending this Wedding Article to Us This Morning.

NEW YORK, N. Y., June 1 – One of the most noted social alliances that has taken place in this country occurred here today, when Prince Albert Radziwill, of the ancient house of Radziwill, was married to Miss Prudencia Milmo, who comes from an old Mexican family, which was
high in the councils of that country during the regime of the monarchy.
St. Francis Xavier’s Church was the scene of the wedding, which was celebrated by his Grace Archbishop Corrigan. The ceremony was followed by the nuptial mass, the Rev. Thomas E. Murphy, pastor of St. Xavier’s Church, being the celebrant.

The bride is a decided brunette and a noted Mexican beauty. She is 26 years of age. She can rightfully claim a good share of distinguished ancestry. Her mother, who died about three years ago, was the daughter of General de Vidauri, who was Prime Minister in the court of the
ill-fated Maximilian and also a commander-in-chief of the imperial Mexican army and Governor- General of the northern province of Mexico. General de Vidauri was executed in the public square of the City of Mexico at the same time Maximilian was put to death.
Miss Milmo’s father is of Irish extraction. His estates in Mexico are vast. The Prince, who is 30 years old, is the oldest son of Prince Matias Radziwill of Warsaw. The young people will leave for Europe on Wednesday.

Archbishop Corrigan Performed the Ceremony

Before a Brilliant and Distinguished Gathering

New York, June 1 – One of the most noted royal alliances that has taken place in this country occurred here today when Prince Albert Radziwill, of the ancient house of Radziwill, was married to Miss Prudenciana Milmo, who comes from an old Mexican family which was high in the councils of that country during the regime of the monarchy. St Francis Xavier’s Church, the scene of the wedding, was prettily decorated.
The church was crowded with the Catholic aristocracy of the city, and there were also present relatives and friends of the contracting couple from Europe and Mexico.
His grace, Archbishop Corrigan, robed in the full canonicals of his office and attended by two deacons and four sub-deacons, sat on a throne before the Eucharist, where, with all the elaborate detail of the Roman Church, he united the young couple.
The ceremony was followed by the nuptial mass, the Rev Thomas R Murphy, pastor of St. Francis Xavier’s Church, being the celebrant. The rich and impressive service was carried out in all its splendor. The musical program rendered throughout the services was especially elaborate.

The bride is a decided brunette, and a noted Mexican beauty. She is twenty-six years old. She can rightfully claim a good share or distinguished ancestry. Her mother, who died about three years ago, was the daughter of Gen. De Vidauri, who was prime minister of the court of  the ill fated Emperor Maximilian and also commander-in-chief of the imperial Mexican army and governor general of the Northern province of Mexico. Gen. De Vidauri was executed in the public square of the City or Mexico at the same time Maximilian was put to death.

Miss Milmo’s father is of Irish extraction. His estates in Mexico are vast. Besides his town house at Monterey, he has, some miles out, a fine country estate, la Mesa de Cartujanos, acquired by his wife’s family by a grant from the King of Spain. The prince, who is thirty years old, is the eldest son of Prince Matias Radziwill of Warsaw. The young couple will leave for Europe on Wednesday
