Interesting photos

This postcard was issued in 1898 to commemorate the marriage of HH Princess Feodora of Saxe-Meiningen and HSH Prince Heinrich XXX Reuss.  Princess Feodora was the first great-grandchild of Queen Victoria. Her mother was Princess Charlotte of Prussia who married Duke Bernhard of Saxe-Meiningen.  Feodora was their only child.  The wedding took place at Breslau on September 24, 1898.

 I have had this card for some time.  The card also commemorates the wedding of Princess Feodora and Prince Heinrich, but also features portraits of the bride and groom's parents, and the bride's maternal grandparents, Kaiserin Victoria and Kaiser Friedrich III, who had died in 1888. 

This photo shows HSH Princess Mechtilde zu Leiningen and Karl Bauscher.  They married on November 25, 1961.  This card commemorated their 50th anniversary
