I think Henry was probably gone for more of them (at least prior to WW1) than he was home--not uncommon in a military marriage. (Trust me--I know!) Their 25th anniversary was overshadowed by the wedding of Victoria Louise & Ernst August which took place the same day.

Both paintings are from Anton von Werner - and titled "Verlobung des Prinzen Heinrich am 90. Geburtstag Kaiser Wilhelm I." (The engagement of Prince Heinrich on the 90. birthday of Kaiser Wilhelm I.)

The painters can't have known what Heinrich was wearing, as one has him in full dress, the other in mes kit! Looking very smart in both.

Hello..ist me.. ;)  finally im here agian.

Well the time run so fast and now i have finding a something new and shoked Information about Henry of Prussia.

Well i just had read in Wikipedia about Henry (in german), there  stand "Outside of his marriage, Prince Henry of Prussia had two Sons with the  Hungarian singer Julie Salinger"

Well if i read the Wiki about him in english, so there stand nothing about his affair.

Well i dont know if i can belive it.. i dont want belive it. I dont think that Henry cheated Irene..He loved her.

Maby he has a affair before he fall in love with Irene sure....but not in his Marriege...

or what do you think guys ??

So, i dont know why now i found this Information...

Here i have some new and interesting Facts about Irene from the german book" Prinz Heinrich von Preußen" from Ernst Diedtrich Baron v. Mirbach

i translate from german to englisch

: Princess Irene and Henry fell in Love at the Wedding from Victoria & Louis Battenberg. (so  4 years later they married)

1.
But her great social commitment left her little time for painting, riding and playing the piano, her favorite pastimes.

The sailor's house in Kiel was actually her work, although she also gave praise, thanks and recognition to her husband.

(what i think ist sad...she did so much, i think if Henry ever thanked Irene for her Support.


2.
While Prince Henry was in East Asia, Kaiser Wilhelm II authorized the trip abroad for the Princess Irene. On December 17, 1898, the Princess arrived in Hong Kong with a small retinue, where for two months she lived in a mansion made available to her and her husband. Also in Tsingtau she preferred the stay on land opposite the ship. "But whether on board or in the country, everywhere she found herself in the best of moods in the often primitive conditions and won the hearts of all who came in contact with her." Prince and Princess made excursions like riding, Heinrich showed her the beautiful landscape.

On top of that, this trip to the Far East had another benefit for the princess (except to see her husband), she learned to ride a bicycle in Tsingtau, a sport that in Germany was extremely improper for a princess.

On April 29, 1899, she started the journey home.


(What was really interesting, that after the stay the princess became pregnant .. on 9 January 1900 she gave birth to the youngest son Heinrich.)


3.
Similar to the poplar Prince Heinrich, they also have various anecdotes about his wife, most of them in Kiel.
The architect Hulbe describes in his memoirs that his mother, before Christmas 1919, was desperate for her father-in-law's art shop because she could not buy a Christmas tree anywhere. Coincidentally, the princess, who was present in the adjoining room of the shop, heard of the difficulties and promptly sent a stately tree from Hemmelberk.


4. After the assassination of the Tsar's family, the pair of princes heard that Anna Anderson was showing up, but of course they did not give up hoping that it could be Anastasia. Undoubtedly, the princess and her lady-in-waiting made their way to the car before they drove off. The prince (who for health reasons could not join) came back to the car and said, "Ninchen, if she is, bring her right away."(so she should bring Anastasia back to Hemmelmark)
