I can only find a picture of Friedrich Josias as a boy. Does anyone have a picture of him as an adult?

Thanks Eric and Euro for killing off the subject. Sadly I was privately messaged the answer to my question and now know why the whole family morganatic or otherwise was dropped.

I believe I gave you my impressions about it...why would the morganatic branch have any doing in what the family did?

There is no contact between the morganatic descendants of Johan Leopold and the dynastic descendants of Friedrich Josias.

In the unlikely event that Carl Edward had wanted to return permanently to the UK after WWI, would this have been at all possible?

Would George V have, after a reasonable period, restored his Albany dukedom?

It's doubtful in my opinion--George V had almost 18 years between the end of WW1 and his own death to consider it and I don't think it was ever a factor. CE had been to England often in those later years and even visited with his cousins so he wasn't still off in the wilderness at that point.

It seems somewhat tacky for the bride's father to wear his American military uniform to the wedding.

I thought he was paying honor to his own service as well as the importance of the occasion. Full naval dress is for the most special of occasions only. For commissioned officers, evening dress uniform is the same as civilian white tie and tails. The Dinner or mess dress uniform is equivalent to civilian "black tie" requirements.  It's not like the old royal weddings where he could just wear the uniform of the country. He's an American military officer and would be forbidden to wear the uniform of a different country. I'm sure it was his daughter's wish that he father wear his dress whites.

My husband wears his dress blues (not his more formal Mess Dress) to weddings. I would love for him to wear his full dress uniform when giving away our daughter in marriage.

Tacky?  Kelly's father is a naval officer, and he wore his dress whites, which is what he is supposed to wear, actually ... and he looked spiffy!

US military wear their dress uniforms for weddings and other things ... and he was not going to wear a suit because he is in the military.  He looked great .. and a wonderful image of Christian escorting his daughter down the aisle.
