Thomas, I didn't know her... however, from all accounts, she was very well-loved in the family.
So long and thanks for all the fish

Elisa, thank you for this information about Pcss Margaret's biography.  Is it in German (sadly I speak and read German very poorly)?

You are most welcome, Martyn! The book is really wonderful, entirely in German.

Elisa, 'wie schade' (is that right?).  I shall live in hope that I may find something in translation.  Thanks all the same.

What lovely pictures.  Who is the child?  Is it Princess Johanna?

Yes, that second picture is of Princess Margaret and Johanna .  I think both of those photos are from Zeepvat's Queen Victoria's Family.

After Johanna's family died, Margaret adopted her. She was devastated when Johanna died of menigitis in 1939.

For I did never have the honor to know her I'd like to know what kind of person she was in your opinion, how she appeared and how you experienced your meeting(s)[/quote]

I corresponded with Pss Margaret for some years in connection with my book, and I was a guest at Wolfsgarten for lunch the day after Prince Harry was born.  We wet his head.   The Princess opened her archives to me, and gave me a tour of the house.  She also made it possible for me to go into the Mausoleum, and put me in touch with other family members as well (or rather put in good words about me.)  I met her again in 1989 when she was in NYC for Prince Henry of Hesse (Enrico d'Assia's) first art exhibition in NYC in 25 years ... a real surprise to see her there .. took photographs of the different royal guests ... inc.

Wie Schade is fine.   Franz's book is superb, lots of lovely photos. Unlikely that the book would ever be translated into English.
