The picture was shot at Wolfsgarten 20th of May 1965. It shows from left to right POrince Ludwig, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret in front with her dogs, behind her Beatrix von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, Dorothea zu Windisch-Grätz and Prince Philip.

I think I was referring to Beatrix von Hohenlohe-Langenburg. Don't think she got married.

Good evening Mr. Lowe. 

I am a long time lurker on this site and was recently reading the Ludwig & Margaret Geddes Thread when I came upon a post/reply (#107) of yours.  Your post in its entirety is below but the following comment within your post (in quotes) is what puzzles me...

"Another good one is the bio of Prince Richard Of Hesse-Kassel (brother of the head of the Hesse Royal House Landgraf Moritz) that is also in German. He was the child of Princess Malfelda of Italy who died in the war and raised by Ludwig and Margaret of Hesse."

To my knowledge, Princess Mafalda of Savoy did not have a child named Richard nor did Landgraf Moritz have a brother named Richard. Prince Richard of Hesse-Kassel was the son of Princess Margaret of Prussia (Mossy).

Could you elaborate and/or clarify six years later? 

Kind regards,  JGP

There wasn't a biography in English that dealt with Prince Ludwig and Margaret of Hesse & By Rhine. First there is one in German on the life of Margaret of Hesse that you can buy in Darmstadt or order from German booksites online.  Another good one is the the bio of Prince Richard Of Hesse-Kassel (brother of the head of the Hesse Royal House Landgraf Moritz) that is also in German. He was the child of Princess Malfelda of Italy who died in the war and raised by Ludwig and Margaret of Hesse.  In English, there is "Hessien Tavesty" that deals from Princess Alice down to Prince Ludwig & Princess Margaret. A more basic source.

He did not mean Richard, but Prince Heinrich "Dendy" of Hesse, the late Landgraf Moritz's brother. His memoirs "Der kristallene Lüster" were published a couple of years before his death

Few years ago, I watched somewhere a footage of an old state visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Germany...don't know which year. :(

At the ball Princess Margaret of Hesse appeared wearing a tiara(I think in some white or light colored dress)...I also think she was wearing glasses.

It was in some castle.Everybody were climbing the stairs and had to greet and courtesy the Queen,including Princess Margaret of Hesse.

I was trying to find anything on the web but just couldn't.

Does anybody know something more about this visit?Maybe pictures or a video?

If you can find the documentary Prince Michael of Kent did about Anna Anderson, Margaret of Hesse appears on that. Michael interviewed her in her garden. This was in the early 1990s, and she was then a very spry old girl, as I remember.
