Yes. http://www.hermann-historica.de/

They have interesting objects. Most of them are military things.

The one of Irene was on sale somewhere else as well--I can't remember whether it was a regular auction  house or ebay but I know I saw it. I wonder if it didn't sell originally or is being resold? I think the price I saw it for was a few hundred dollars so I wasn't even tempted.

I have the postcard version and can't afford to spring for one with an autograph.  :)

Does anyone know what the message underneath her signature says?

The last photo of Henry & Irene was for their 25th anniversary, I think--which coincided with Victoria Louise's wedding day.

It says "Irene, Princess Heinrich of Prussia. In kind remembrance of the years of the war, 2 August 1914 - 4 January 1918." ("Irene Prinzessin Heinrich von Preußen. Zur freundlichen Erinnerung an die Kriegsjahre 2. VIII.1914 - 4. I.1918").

Really ! Did they celebrate togather ? I am sure Irene would be proud to tell George V "By the way it is also our wedding anniversary today !"  ;)

Yes--Henry & Irene May 24, 1888 and VL & EA May 24 1913. I would imagine they got rather overshadowed by the big wedding. Maybe something before or after the actual event. I would think that relatives wished them congratulations (and Henry & George V were on good terms) but for specifics I really don't know.
