News and commentary about the reigning royal houses of the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Spain, Monaco -- and the former European monarchies as well.
Um, well, if the Germans want to compete in style and glamor with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, I'd find two other royal specimens to put in the spotlight. Those two - who are probably lovely people - give plainness a new definition.
I think things would be very different if Georg Friedrich and Sophie were the emperor and empress or king and queen .. they are indeed lovely people, having met them in Bucharest last fall.
I think its time for Germany to reconsider restoring Georg Friedrich and Sophie as Emperor and Empress. Same as Greece, Roumania, Bulgaria, Portugal and Russia.
there is no groundswell in Germany for such a thing. The monarchy was on shaky ground by the first world war, and collapsed. As for Greece, they have far more serious issues to deal with, and a king is not going to solve their problems.
Actually, I went back to the article with the hideous wedding picture and clicked on another article about them from August 2011. That article had another picture of them, a much better one, with both husband and wife looking quite cute.I wish you had used THAT picture rather than the one you did use.
I only use photos that are out of copyright or that I have permission to use.
