Princess Margarita of Baden laid to rest

Princess Margarita of Baden was laid to rest at the family cemetery, Stefansfeld, near Baden, earlier today.  About 150 mourners attended the ceremony, including brothers, the Margrave of Baden and Prince Ludwig of Baden, and their families.

A number of members of German aristocratic families were present including Duke Friedrich and Duke Ferdinand of Württemberg, Prince Rainer of Hesse (first cousin), Prince Albrecht of Hohenzollern, and Prince and Princess Andreas of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (first cousin.)  I also spotted the Prince of Leiningen in one of the photographs.

The Princess's two children, Princess Katarina and Prince Nikola attended, as did her two granddaughters, Victoria de Silva, and Princess Maria of Serbia. I do not think her great-grandson, Enzo, was present for the ceremony.

Princess Margarita was the first wife of Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia.  They were divorced in 1981.

The funeral in Salem was conducted according to the rite of the Orthodox church.;art372491,5876981
