There, you got me blushing.
Actually, you are to be credited as well – I didn’t know the name of Princess Anne’s daughters (you mentioned them earlier in this thread).

According to a report from October 8, Prince David and Princess Anna were in Caracas on part of their honeymoon. While in Venezuela, the royal couple were hosted by the Marqués de Torre Casa. The trip was also set to include Brazil and the Caribbean.

I hope they remain together. Before the wedding, I was thrilled with the scenario of a new Reigning House in Europe...

Venezuela, Brazil and Caribbean... Three wonderful places to spend a honeymoon!

They won't.They seperated only within a few months after the wedding.The wedding photo's were already a sign on the wall.
Anna was/is,not David's choice.So,better to seperate now then to hang on for posterity while there's no love lost between them.
At least not from the Prince's side,they should never have married in the first place.Life is different from girls dreams.

Thanks for additional information about Princes David and Princess Anna's short-lived marital bliss!
It is unfortunate that the couple seems to be unable to preserve the union. All these grand wedding celebrations were just a waste of money. I have to agree with Lucien noting that Prince David and Princess Anna should not have married at all. I wonder what prompted Princess Anna to go on with the wedding, if she was not sure about this relationship. Based on information about Prince David, I would say that he really meant for this union to succeed.

Perhaps I should have noted this before, but the article appears to say that the pair were on their honeymoon IN October (8 months after the marriage and 2 months after the separation story surfaced).

As regards the comment about the wedding pictures being an indication of problems to come, it seems to me that Prince David has a rather serious demeanor in general. I have seen very few photos where he is smiling. Personally, I think David wanted this union just as much as (if not more than) Princess Anna. After all, it is he who has moved back to Georgia, learned the language, become active in the Church, and succeeded to his father's claims when his elder brother wasn't interested. Plus, Prince David's family was at the wedding en masse. It is doubtable whether the family would have bothered to come all the way from Western Europe to Tbilisi for a marriage that they knew their kinsman was not committed to.

"All the way from Western Europe" takes 3 to 4 hours flying.So,next to nothing since we have aircraft here.....

Why they went on with the drama?Family matters.Alliences to be upheld and all that old world stuff in a place on the globe
where it is least to be revived,but still,and it had less to do with love then it has with thinking too big.But it made for some
pretty colour locale.Pitty really,a bond is ment to be different,and in this case family pride and esteem and all that still weigh
in way too high,in this case that is.Now they have a divorce.That is chic....

I'm so glad to know that, having had nooo idea. With that fact in mind, it still takes anywhere from 7 to 20 hours to get from Madrid (where David's family is based) to Tbilisi [on a plane].

We won't really know the status of the couple's relationship for sure until we either hear (1) that they are legally divorced or (2) that they are expecting their first child . I'd much rather the latter come true. Queen Victoria would surely tell them to "Lie back and think of Georgia."

Anywho, hopefully Prince David and Princess Anna enjoyed their late luna de miel.

I, for one, would be really glad if Prince David and Princess Anna manage to work out their differences. Hope this delayed ‘honeymoon’ will help to improve things.
I’m a bit optimistic, because people from Caucasian region tend to be really serious about it; if David and Anna divorce, then you can be sure there were simply no other options.

Right you are, Marsel. There is some faint hope left. I am sure that the elders are working hard to preserve this union.

Lucien was right.

Prince Davit and Princess Anna are certainly separated, and they very well may already be divorced.

Reports that the couple had split first appeared in the press in April 2009 (see Georgia Times). Then, as posted here, stories resurfaced in August 2009 saying that there was no chance of reconciliation.

Within the past month, information regarding the wedding and Princess Anna have been removed from the website of Prince Davit: Order of the Eagle of Georgia

Here are two clips from Georgian media talking about the marriage (and presumably its demise?) The videos are in Georgian if anyone would like to summarize them.
Anna Bagrationi Gruzinsky Davit Bagration Mukhransky » BaBaJaNa (Anna's first husband Grigoriy Malania is mentioned)

Well ... it is truly sad. There was some hope that the couple would find the way to make the union work. .

Yes, definitely sad, considering that they are married since just 13 months...

Surely we should not come to premature conclusions just on the hearsay of some tabloids and rumours, it would be much better to wait and see if either branch of the family makes an official announcement. Until then we must assume that they are still together.

There is a strong possibility that neither family will officially confirm the divorce. Removal of information pertaining to Princess Anna and the wedding from Prince David's website might be viewed as a telling sign that the intra-dynastic union was dissolved.

Prince Nugzar himself confirmed in April that the couple were having problems. Nugzar was hopeful that the situation between his daughter and Prince David would improve with time, but obviously it did not.

In August, when the story came of a final break, Princess Anna's mother Leila made it clear that the family was not going to discuss the matter. Also, if you watch the first video, you can see with your own eyes that the Bagrations made sure that they did not talk to the media.

So, as Al bina says, it is extremely unlikely that either party is going to state anything publically.

On another website, I read that Princess Anna's first (and apparently happy) marriage to Malania was broken up just so that she could marry Prince Davit. If that is true, then the rapid demise of the Moukhransky/Gruzinsky union should not come as such a surprise.

However, it is a shame that the two royal lines will probably never be joined again...

A Russian summary of the Bagrationi break-up:
http://community.livejournal.com/ru_royalty/498588.html

The comments about Prince David and his motives for entering into the marriage are not very positive.

Thanks for new information!
Sarcastic comment about the marriage are not surprising. However, I am truly shocked to learn that Princess Anna's first marriage was destroyed. I thought she divorced Mr. Malaniya due to issues unrelated to restoring the monarchy.

Cool

That's a shame Princess Anna's first marriage was broken in order for this union, now a nonunion, to take place. As pictures of the wedding showed, this couple were doomed from the start. I'm sorry for both people involved.
