Prince Jaime is the son of Beatrix's sister, Princess Irene, who accompanied her son to the church wearing a bright red outfit. Irene's husband and Jaime's father Prince Carlos Hugo sadly passed away on 28 August 2010.

Jaime, 40, and Hungarian-born Dutch lawyer Viktoria, 31, had already tied the knot in a civil ceremony earlier in the week.

The prince, who works for the Dutch foreign ministry, specifically chose wedding rings made from fair trade Peruvian gold to match Viktoria's engagement ring according to HELLO!'s sister publication, HOLA!.
