Yes...I agree Marie is "being Royal" here. She was so forward in other aspects in her life that it really baffles when one sees such instances.

Hi!

I ve found two curious pics of Maria ( i dont know if they have been posted here. Sorry if they re repeated!)

The first one...

Maria looking with fascionation her hubby, and this one...cold and rigid looking at the cam




And this one is uber weird!!. Valdi and George, side by side, holding arms and their wifes  sit in the opposite sides of their husbands!, showing the atypical family they were



(Sorry about my spelling :-( )

Wow! Great pics!!!!!!!!!!
Where did you get them? From any book? I know in the different volumes of Célia Bertins book there are often different pics, too, but I really never saw these here! Do you own another special and good book on the subjects? Please tell us, if yes :)
Oh dear, the one with Waldemar is really weird!!! I have seen one before, where Waldemar is standing next to George and Marie was sitting, but this one....! Was this an official photograph?? Wouldn't it be impossible???? Did it not make any scandal? Huch!
One can be lucky that Marie was so much in her own world of work and psychoanalysis, if she had been more devoted to her husband, I think she would have suffered a lot!

I got an even more intimate one in my book..."Royal Images". I spot the photo at Windsor Castle and used it in my book. I believe that they were an item...

Really? That sounds great! So you found yours at Windsor Castle? Is it also with Marie on it?
I suppose you can't post it here, because you're using it for your book... :-\

I don't have it with me nowin Panama . I can sent you a copy of the book later. It is a photo of George has an arm on his uncle, while he was reading his newspaper. I was shocked when I saw it. It is as if the photographer came into the room unanounced...

Quote
where Marie and Peter discussed about that morganatic marriage and Marie was not very happy and expressed this clearly, she also said that Peter seemed to repeat the mistake of so many descendants of Lucien Bonaparte: to marry a wife of a wrong "standard", he really seemed to be typical like his ancestor Lucien Bonaparte in that point: For him love to his wives was the most important thing, even more important than getting a "land" by his brother Napoleon!

Marie Bonaparte herself isn't from a royal family. I think that her and George marriage was morganatic

Well.in terms of royal blood this is true,but in terms of form not because the Greek royal family treated the marriage as equal,so...

Yes. But the Greeks gave her the full title because of the Bonaparte name & Blanc money. Just like Alice Leeds...

Well,at least they included her name which is not the case with Mrs. Leeds...Maybe not so royal and equal Marie was after all Princess in her own right before the marriage,so I think that the ''form'' was satisfied...of course when money included!

Was he already married there? I looks like as if Georg was still very young and maybe it was before the marriage with Marie?
Does anyone know the date?
Thank you for posting!

The photo is reproduced in the book The Camera and the Tsars by Charlotte Zeepvat. The photo was taken in 1884, before Valdemars marriage. George was 15 by then.

Vladimir first took the hand of his beloved nephew when he was a little boy. Marie was right to resent the relationship, but it was so long standing...

I wonder how Olga handled it, your brother in "love" with your son. Something is wrong with that. It would bother me if was Olga.
