Many thanks for some interesting pictures. One thing I like about Boris and Giovanna is that they didn't overdress their children - Simeon and Maria Luisa look tidy but are not covered in frills and flounces!

Did Giovanna continue playing the cello after her marriage?

You are welcome

Yes i agree..they were dressed modestly

And yes she continued playing as she wrote in her memories "Even after my marriage my love for the cello never died and when always when i had time i set and played"

And her children said it also.... In the palace there was the piano of Ioanna... Simeon said she played the piano very good...

Nice to hear about Giovanna's music.

John Gunther also says that Boris was a considerate husband, in that when he and Giovanna were first married they didn't go out much, as he wanted to give her time to settle down in Bulgaria and learn the language first.

Yes it's true but sometimes Ioanna later acussed him that he is always too busy and don't spend enough time with the children...

I did one tribute re telling the story.... I uploaded it on 25 October on their wedding day..

Oh really?, Tsar Boris III always seemed to me a very present father for his children...

Wonderful new video Elly!

I imagine most wives complain at some stage that their husbands are too busy to spend time with the children. I'll have to ask my father whether my mother, now dead, ever said that of him, when he had a demanding job which took him away a good deal, spent weekends as a gliding instructor, and many evenings attending night school and  studying for exams!
