I saw their grand-daughter Princess Tatania Radziwill (?) , next to Queen Sophie at Nicholas 's pre-wedding ball. She is one of her very close friends since always!
She marries a french Doctor , I forgot his name.
I suppose she was at the wedding too but there were no pictures of her

Yes, she was with her husband at the wedding. I saw them on TV.

From September 16th to December 12th 2010 there is an exposition about princess Marie at the Musée des Avelines in Saint Coud:

Marie Bonaparte, princesse Georges de Grèce (1882-1962). Portrait d'une femme engagée

The princess was born in Saint Cloud btw.

Interestingly, while I ve seen pictures of Marie Elena and Alice wearing this dress I haven't been able to find yet not een one of Sophie wearing it, which seems weird to me , considering she was the Diadoch's wife

She died without doubt of an acute leukemia in 1962, the last chapter of the book "La dernière Bonaparte" by Celia Bertin speaks about this suject and her death. The illness came very fast and she got a treatment cortisone, but the success was limited. Even some days before her death, when her fever was about 40 °C she was very clear in her head and said to her daughter "May I still live next year?", She was reading books of medicine and others works making notes for herself. She died quiety on the last summerday (21. September),1962 and wished a very simple grave.

Yes, the two women, apart from 2nd cousins, are also close friends. Tatiana was Queen Sofia's bridesmaid as well.

I have been looking for a separate thread about the Radziwills but to no avail. If I remember correctly, they belong to Polish nobility. Could someone please direct me to the right thread, if one exists? Thanks!
