Many thanks, but no Crown Prince?

Wilhelm the Kaiser of course is standing in the back with Dona.

Wilhelm the CP is missing. Interesting how Eitel has placed his arm in Cecelie's the way a woman who normally do with a man's arm. Irene is looking her usual annoyed-bored; she's even sitting quite sloppily. Dona has a pleasant smile.

The photo looks to have been taken on the steps of the Neues Palais in Potsdam. I suspect this date was prior to August.

I think it was certainly taken before 1914, as the men are wearing blue rather than field grey. Some are wearing white trousers, however, so I would suggest May-July.

Hard to say. The tag says 1914 and everyone looks about right for that time. WWI was basically unexpected so the attire would not have been unusual in June/July 1914. I wonder why it seems all the women are in the same shade of dark.

  According to my family history, my paternal grandfather Paul, whom I barely knew, when he was a boy  about five to seven years old, saw Wilhelm, then Crown Prince, on parade at Spandau, with senior German army officers. Wilhelm would have been in his early twenties. Grandfather definitely noticed the withered left arm, though he otherwise didn't elaborate.

Huis Doorn might be facing closure
« Reply #29 on: January 09, 2013, 03:10:29 PM »
I saw this article in the Independent the other day and thought everyone on this forum should be aware of it. From what I've learnt over the past few days, Huis Doorn (the Kaiser's house in the Netherlands where he lived from 1922-1941) hasn't actually shut yet, but is only opening for limited hours until 1st May, when the money donated to keep it open runs out. There isn't a lot of information in English, so if someone here can find out a little more by reading everything in Dutch, that would be useful (as Google translate isn't the most reliable of tools!)

As an avid Kaiser fan, I find this really quite sad, so I'm spending most of my student loan on a visit to Doorn at the end of January.

I just wanted to put this on the forum, as it really shocked me and, while I understand the need for austerity at the moment, I think it's dreadful how so much history is being shut off from the public because of monetary issues.

Here's the link to the article - you'll probably have to copy and paste it, as I'm very inexperienced with posting links, and generally hopeless with technology...
