Today so many sons and daughters from royal and mediatized house have some non equal ancestors ( no 16 ones anymorel, the most are glad when having 8 at least).
I think all of the prussians and his other relatives are glad that he marries a princess at all. The question about confession is a question of precedence and will probably be solved by raising their children as protestants ( I don't really think she'll convert !).

And her mother/ grandmother: it's all water under the bridge now !

And the interesting thing is that through her paternal great-great grandmother (through which this line of the Family became catholic) their children will also decends from the Habsburgs.

Endlich! What kept him? In some strange, mystical way, the relation of the Hohenzollern House to normal life has strengthed the House. But at the same time, note that GF has maintained a thoroughly admirable Royal character. GF is a model of royal decorum who teach lessons to all the other royal houses. His wedding is a true ROYAL wedding; unlike the unequal marriages that now afflict the reigning houses.

It depends of the House Law of every House...For example,Regina von Habsburg comes from the union of Sachsen-Meiningen and Korff-Schmising-Kerssenbrock...Obviously Regina was considered good enough for those Houses who require only full membership of a mediatized or sovereign House,but maybe not good enough for the Houses who,along with a full membership,require "equal" ancestry in several generations...

Augusta of Schleswig-Holstein was interesting at that time because she was a good political choice(because of Schleswig-Holstein war)...but while her mother(Hohenlohe-Langenburg) was considered "good enough",her grandmother,a "mere Danish Countess" was not...but,obviously,politics prevailed and she became Wilhelm's first wife...

And,if we speak about ancestry,Wilhelm's second wife Hermine had a much better pedigree with her all 16 immediate ancestors being equal,unlike Augusta Victoria who has only 12 out of 16,if we presume that her ancestor is King Christian VII and not Johann Friedrich,Count von Struensee-that would make 11 out of 16...

This engagement is welcome news indeed. The traditional equal marriage is a refreshing change from a wave of commoners. I am looking forward to seeing wedding photos.

It is wellknown that Otto von Habsburg changed the house laws of the Habsburgs because he is a true democrat who believes in the equality of all people and who worked hard as a member of European parliament for Human Right bills on all levels of society. Some of his brothers/cousins still hold out for the old rules (which asked for those 16 ancestors) but as the Head of the House of Habsburg-Lothringen is was Otto's privilege to make that descision.

Once Georg-Friedrich of Prussia has fulfilled all necessary requirements to become the Head of his family he might change the Hohenzollern House Laws as well.

We should not forget that all monarchs who allowed "unequal" marriages for their family members are the Head of state of democracies who have Human Rights as basis of their constitution. In today's times it would not be political correct to say no to a marriage wish only because the bride is not considered suitable due to her birth (it is something different when it comes to her character/lifestyle/social environment).

Georg is not marrying Sophie because he has to marry her ... He is marrying her because they are very much in love, and have been dating for several years.

The requirements for the marriages are not set out in a House law, but in a WILL ...the requirements were stated in Kaiser Wilhelm II's will, which was written after he was in exile. The requirements were set out for the Erbe and nacherbe (Louis Ferdinand and Georg Friedrich). The Will makes no reference to a third generation.

I have a question though, will any reigning houses of Europe attend? I've never seen anyone from the house of Hohenzollern attend an occasion (e.g. Wedding, Banquets, Funeral or Burial) of any reigning houses, the only person I know who attended such were HI&RH Grand Duchess Kira, Princess of Prussia when she was still alive after such, I've never seen anyone from their family attend

This nuptial engagement is surprising to me as I was away from computer access when they had announced this. It seems to be a great union where two loyal regal persons find an attraction and bond, placing sealing of grandeur for their entwinement. It's good to see. I had hoped that Georg would find love and a romance along the way while following here. So I'm happy. But it is surprising and yet a breath of fresh air. Who knew that he found love when it felt he was going after love.

Wishing this Royal pair the makings of a great dynasty. The World is their oasis and just maybe they will be sovereign and actually in reign someday. Therefore good luck and may you partake in the communion of the people in the land and show as example your way. Long may you both remember your vows and bondage when the time passes and takes place. Cheers.

Really? I didn't know that thank you for that information. I hope Prince Georg Friedrich would attend the wedding either Prince William or Prince Albert this year, such a shame I didn't see him in Crown Princess Victoria's wedding.

Well, they surely won't reign in Germany as the Prince is just the pretendant to the title of "German emperor" and not of the "Emperor of Germany" as the country consists today of a lot of formerly independant monarchies. So even if Germany would like to revert back to a monarchy (which it doesn't) the question would be "Which one?" and I doubt that this time the political powers would choose Prussia's RF.

Invited Reigning Royals?

Would anyone know or guess which of the royal reigning houses would be invited to the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia and Her Serene Highness Princess Sophie of Isenburg?

He attended Felipe's and Frederik's so maybe Spain & Denmark? He's closer to Spain Through Sofia's Grandmother born princess of Prussia. I hope to see the Duke of Braganca with his wife. Goerg was at the Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe's wedding so maybe them. He was also present at the wedding of Hubertus, Hereditary Prince of SCG.It would be nice for either the Kent's or Gloucester's to represent the Queen at the wedding but I'm not holding my breath on that one! LOL
