Yes, I did that when I saw the old 'Saxe-Coburgs' thread change to be just reflective of 'Charlie' and his family. He already had an 8 page thread here in the Windsor section so it made sense to just combine them here since, while not technically a Windsor, he was born a British royal and wasn't a Hohenzollern.

Nice pic of Dick and Sybilla. BTW was Sybilla a nasty person ? I heard she was not a considerate mother.

Tsk, tsk. You haven't even checked his German Wikipedia article! Unforgiveable in this age of online translators.....
It says he was buried in the family plot which was set up in 1944 in the Forest of Callenberg Castle. (Which was a beautiful, romantic surprise for me, so I'll forgive your faux pas :-)

Yes.
It was at Callenburg. I visited the castle when there was an exhibition of Queen Victoria art effects here. It was opened by Prince Andras of Coburg, the current owner of the estate.

It's at the Waldfriedhof near Castle Callenburg. One of the best sites for royal graves is mardam's:

It is actually outside the Schloss. The plot was surrounded by trees. I was there...

Any information on Duke Carl Eduard's second daughter "Calma" ? She seemed to have a very turbelent life.

From wikipedia:

Princess Caroline married three times; firstly, on 14 December 1931, she married Friedrich Wolfgang Otto, Count of Castell-Rüdenhausen (27 June 1906 – 11 June 1940). She ultimately abandoned him, amid much controversy and scandal. On 2 May 1938 in Berlin, Caroline and Friedrich were divorced. He was killed in action during World War II, flying over England.

Secondly, on 22 June 1938, she married Captain Max Schnirring (20 May 1895 – 7 July 1944). He was also killed in a flying accident. Thirdly, on 23 December 1946, she married Karl Otto Andree (10 February 1912 – 1984). They divorced on 10 October 1949.

Later lifeThe Saxe Coburg family was left virtually penniless for their actions during World War II. Caroline had a difficult time adjusting, becoming estranged from some of her children. She had numerous relationships with different men and became a shoemaker. Caroline died in 1983.

By Friedrich Wolfgang Otto, Count of Castell-Rüdenhausen
Count Bertram Friedrich of Castell-Rüdenhausen 12 July 1932   
Count Conradin Friedrich of Castell-Rüdenhausen 10 October 1933

I think her daughter Victoria is living in England. She talks about her grandfather in a documentary.
