How's this story coming?  You haven't updated it in over a month now.

Makes one wish for the lives that they could have had.

Given that the Cambridges will be having their third child between now and the wedding, the chances of Harry succeeding are pretty low. I think there would have been more controversy had William chosen to marry a divorcee, but it doesn't seem to be a major issue for Harry.

I'm happy that Harry found someone that he really loves.

King Michael was a brave and decent man who triumphed over the legacy of his father, Carol II.

Sadly, his country was taken away from him by Communist thugs just a few years later.  Apparently, the Communists said that, if he refused to abdicate, they would start shooting people.  Michael had no choice but to comply to save lives.

I can't imagine how the poor man felt, watching his people suffer under the yolk of the Ceausescu family. 

Still, Michael did see the end of the Ceausescu horror show, and eventually was welcomed back by Romania.  He didn't regain his throne, but he was very popular there.

Tsarskoe Selo Palaces / Re: The Amber Room of the Catherine Palace

There is this show on the History Channel called Hunting Nazi Treasure, in which they try to track down priceless works of art that the Nazis looted, which is still missing today.

Last night they talked about the Amber Room and where it might have gone.  One theory is that it's still in Russia, in Kaliningrad.  That part of Russia was once part of Germany, and the theory is that the Nazis hid it in an underground bunker, as the Soviets approached, and then sealed the bunker off. 

There is this fellow who wants to dig the bunker up.  However, safety concerns have so far thwarted that effort. 

I wonder if the Amber Room is indeed in that bunker.

I know that there are some idiots out there who are quick to remind us all what happened the last time a British Royal took up with an American divorcee.   However, that was an entirely different situation.  Harry is not in line for the throne, after all (his brother William, and then William's son, George, are).  So there is really no comparison to Edward VII and Wallis Simpson and anyone trying to make such a comparison, IMO, sounds like a moron.

Also, this is not 1936 anymore.  Prince Charles, next in line to the throne is himself a divorcee and so is his current wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess Of Cornwall.   So even if Harry was next in line after Charles, I don't see any issues about it.  Of course, since Harry is not next in line, this point is moot.

I wish all my best to Harry and Meghan.

Marion is a well-established actress and I personally consider her very beautiful. Her chocolate brown/auburn hair, pure blue eyes, delicate smile and flawless, fair skin

She played the villian, Talia Ra-Ghul, in The Dark Knight Rises.
