That anecdote about the King of Bulgaria is hilarious! Ahh, royal protocol.

Thanks for posting Elsa, I have never seen it before. I suppose that Victoria Melita cvould have argued that an empress (de jure) would outrank an ex-king, but she left the king to his tantrum.

The youtube video shows that Tsar Ferdinand gets angry because Victoria Melita is exiting the church before him, and he starts shouting and gets into the car that was supposed to take Victoria Melita and her daughter Kira. In the mean time the Grand Duchess tries to ignore the kings tantrum.

Does anyone know if Sybilla could speak Swedish at the time of her wedding? In the video when the couple leaves the cathedral, she looks embarassed, or lost for words when she gives a little wave to the crowd. Maybe she was just overwhelmed (she'd be forgiven for that!). I just wondered if maybe she couldn't understand what anyone was saying...

hennybenny, she got married in Coburg (her home) so I'm sure she understood what the crowd was saying. Maybe she didn't know what to say to her new husband (I'm pretty sure he must have spoken German)?

And King Ferdinand behaved pretty atrociously... it was most unchivalrous of him to have a tantrum because of a breach of protocol.
