Thank you Warren. I'll look them up online. :)

"An Uncommon Woman The Empress Frederick" by Hannah Pakula, which is possibly the definitive biography of Vicky. Be shocked at her treatment by her son after the Emperor Frederick died and she was placed under virtual house arrest; be intrigued at how she managed to smuggle her private papers to Britain to stop the new Kaiser geting his hands on them. And much more!

In coverage of Andrew's wedding which shows a scene of well-wishers seeing them off after the reception at Buckingham Palace, there is a close-up of The Queen waving and pointing and Sophie is next to her.

I can recommend the Vicky biography, I was gripped throughout. Such a bright, well educated girl treated as an enemy by her inlaws. It really puts Princess Di's complaints in perspective.

This is a very interesting thread. How tragic the story of Cecilie. I see that there was a daughter (approx. 3 years old) who didn't die until 1939 (after the rest of the family). Was this just a typo or did this child live a couple of years after the others and how did she die? Also, if you look at the pictures of Cecilie as a young girl, I see a distinct resemblence to Princess Beatrice of York.

Cecilie and the rest of the family were flying to the wedding of her husband's brother when they were killed. The youngest child, Johanna, had been left behind at home and was not on the plane. Unfortunately, she died of meningitis two years later. There is a fascinating biography of Prince Philip's mother by Hugo Vickers called Alice, Princess Andrew of Greece, that goes into quite a bit of detail about Prince Philip and his relationship with his mother and sisters. I was just looking at it this weekend at the bookstore, and can highly recommend it!

I read that book as well. What a tragedy to have happen right before the wedding of Lu and Peg of Hesse. To lose your brother and his family...and then your niece two years later.

I just came across the fact that princess Friederike of Hannover, the daughter of Sophia of Greece and thus a niece of prince Philip married a man named Jerry Cyr from Vancouver, Canada? They have a daughter Julia, born in 1982 - does anyone know anything about this Canadian cousin of princes William and Harry?

Berthold of Baden certainly was not a Nazi. I believe Christoph of Hesse-Kassel (Sophie's first husband) was a staunch Nazi, her second husband was not. I am not to sure about Gottfried of Hohenlohe-Langeburg but if he had been a staunch Nazi I am sure he would never been invited for the 1953 coronation.

Gottfried of Hohenlohe-Langeburg was part of the Nazi Party according to the book ROYALS AND THE REICH.

Margarethas children also died fairly young, though as adults, but in their fifties?

However you must remember that to serve as officers in the army you had to be a member of the party.

It is more important to know when they joined the party.

Christopher of Hesse (Sophie's first husband) was an active Nazi but the others weren't.

To support their country they had to join a party but they may not necessarily have believed in the party's policies.

When I started teaching here in NSW, if I wasn't a member of the Teacher's Federation, I couldn't get a job therefore I joined the union. I have never been a great supporter of unions and don't support the union movement in general but in order to do the job I wanted I had to join. The same thing was the case for many people who joined the Nazi party after about 1934 as to have the job or serve at certain levels in the armed services etc party membership was mandatory.

Yeah, I know. It was the thing to do and for the most part, most of the party members hadn't a clue what it all really meant.

Well, let's say it was the easier way to become a party member. There were high-ranking officers though who did not become party-members and lived to tell the story (two of my uncles included).

HRH Princess Friederike of Hanover, daughter of Prince Philip's sister Sophie and her 2nd husband Prince Georg of Hanover, was born in 1954 and married Jerry Cyr (b 1951) in Vancouver in 1979.

They have two children, both born in Vancouver:
• Julia Emma Cyr (1982)
• Jean-Paul Welf Cyr (1985)

Marlene Eilers in 'Queen Victoria's Descendants' stated that Princess Friederike was once thought to be a possible bride for the Prince of Wales.

I know Prince Philip is deeply proud of his family. Thank you, everyone, for the pictures. I never saw pictures of the sisters before. Cecile/a looked exactly like him! That face, so much like his, exactly.
