A visit to Battenberg by the Mountbattens

Earlier this month,  the Marquess and Marchioness of Milford Haven, along with his daughter, Lady Tatiana Mountbatten, and his brother, Lord Ivar Mountbatten and two of his three daughters, Alexandra and Louise Mountbatten, visited Battenberg, Germany.

This was the first visit to Battenberg by the Mountbattens in more than 50 years.

This branch of the family is the only surviving male line left of the morganatic branch of the Hesse and by Rhine family.  The main line is now extinct.   Lord Milford Haven has one son, the Earl of Medina.
