Marlene, this is a little off topic but can you tell anything on the life of Princess Christina's roomate, Princess Beatrix of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. There was so much written on their young lives, then nothing. When Beatrix died her obituary mostly gave details on her time in England. I know you wrote some on her in QVD but like Christina I always thought it suprising there was not much heard from her publicly after her time in England. Bea

Her parents hat life was too free in London, so she was ordered home. She was briefly engaged to the margrave of Baden. She worked as the family secretary.

Thank you Marlene, I am suprised though because from what was writen about Christina and Beatrix they sounded very independent and destined to be well known names. Bea
