What is Prince Georg Friedrich like? I mean, is her a very active social person or does he stay in the abckground of the gossip columns? Does he ever participate in any events related to the Hohenzollern family? If he chose to marry a commoner, would his rights go to another person from the family? Go on Linnea, you seem to know a lot ;)

Thanks! There was a big interview with Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia in the political magazine Cicero. He seems to be a very nice guy, who wants to represent the Hohenzollern family as modern and dignified as possible, as he says. He does a lot of social work as does his mother, but he don´t want to be a "jet-set-royal". Well if he marries a commoner, he would lose his position, but I don´t think he´ll do that as his girlfriend is said to be Princess Sophie zu Isenburg.

Lulu was the nickname of HRH Louis Ferdinand sen. Prince of Prussia. I think it is OK to call him so as he´s called this way on the offical homepage of the house of Hohenzollern which is run by his grandson and succesor as head of the family HRH Georg Friedrich Prinz von Preussen ;).

The wedding at Doorn of Louis Ferdinand with grandduchess Kyra, with special guests Juliana and Bernhard. Queen Juliana stayed friends with Kyra all her life.

They are unique productions and we have mined the Eurohistory collection to no end.  Those who have seen it know how vast it is! :-)

I love doing these In Memoriams for they allow us to tell someone's story through word and image. With the use of black/white and color photos they truly are a unique collector's item!

I enjoyed this thread. Kyra looked less like Ducky than did Marie, her other daughter. I am glad Kira's marriage was happy, but Ducky didn't live to see it.

I think Marie looks very much like Ducky's oldest daughter, Elizabeth of Hesse.  Does anyne else see the resemblence?

Just been reading a guide book to the Burg Hohenzollern in Swabia where Kira and her husband are buried with many other members of the family.The book mentions but does not illustrate a painting of Mary and Jesus byFeodor Bruni (1801-75) which was a christening gift to Kira from her godfather Nicholas II.Presumably the Kirrills managed to take this to Finland when they fled in 1917.
