Thank you oh very, very much, Ally! God bless you! Thoí I have that picture for a long time already, itís just today that I knew Dicki Mountbatten was behind them! I think he was stalking Maria based on his location and position. Thatís how I stalk my crush, too (sorry for this off-topic sentence).

'In The Lost Prince, Prince John is an admirer of Marie. Any truth in that?'

Prince John could not have been an admirer of Marie's in any romantic sense (though he may have liked her as an older cousin). The only time they could have met was when Nicholas and family visited Britain in 1909. John was four years old!

The munzenberg picture has always driven me nuts. I seem to have looked at every photo of the castle on the net searching for this location. I have also found a castle plan on the net & I still can't make out where it is.

Anyone know ?
Anyone been to munzenberg ?

Nice outfits by the way, & who is that strange girl to maria's left. ..........   Only joking of course, but doesn't she look odd.

As to louis ever marrying maria, surely he must have known this would be a non-starter. My opinion only you understand.

Many thanks princess. I knew I should have used a smiley in "who's that strange girl". Any misunderstanding is totally my fault.

I was commenting on her general expression, perhaps she's playing the fool as usual. It is a nice photo of maria though, & thank you for your early reply.

Anastasia's facial expression is priceless . Sorta she is mimicking her older sister who was putting her gloves on.  ;D

I've seen this several places - Flight of the Romanovs - a TV interview with LLM - and perhaps in the family bio on the Mountbattens

This coming sunday the 5th of september it will be 100 years to the day since the IF visited munzenberg, see #90 photo post by GD Ally. The date is from Charlotte Zeepvat's CAMARA AND THE TSARS & she's always spot on with all her facts. For those who like to google earth I surmise (or guess) it was taken at the southern end of the castle somewhere along the burgweg entrance. Both M & A are facing south into the sun, & by the length of the shadows I estimate the time of day to be around 11am to 1pm.  .........Wish I could be there.

About Louis Mountbatten having a picture of GD Marie at his bedside til the day he died: That seems to be true and I pretty much accepted it when I first read about it. The question is: What did his wife Edwina think about it? Your spouse having a picture of his young beloved in sight near the marital bed can't possibly be good for your marriage. Even if it's taken for what it was, just a fond old remembrance of a long past infatuation, it would be pretty troubling. Hmmm.

I think Marina would have no room to complain, considering their rather "open" relationship.

Agreed, Robert!  All one has to do is read a bit about the couple and "surprises"  DO develop!   Regards,   AP.
