I would say that most of the german royal families would send representatives. He has attended most of their weddings in the last ten years. As for reigning families I would guess that Belgium and Luxembourg and possibly Denmark, oh and Liechtenstein. Princess Caroline would probably represent Monaco.

I guess this is more a marriage of convenience. Both are glad to marry noble. They might even have deep feelings for each other and like each other. But I'm not sure if that marriage is forever.

But of course we don't know them and I wish them all the best and no divorce ( especially for their childrens good ), many children and luck.
I'm sorry but how do you know this is a marriage of convenience? Just because many of the royals are now marrying commoners, doesn't mean any who marry a fellow royal is for convenience, or doomed to fail.

Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz have been married for 27 years
Queen Sofia and King Juan Carlos 49 years
Anne-Marie and Constantine 47 years
Elizabeth and Philip 64 years


The fact is that many of the people they socialize, hang out with, grow up with will be members of the aristocracy. In the end most will not marry it seems these days, but at some point most will date another member of that class. To say simply because they are both of royal blood, means they only 'care about each other' is ludicrous. I don't think you date for over a decade, childhood sweethearts, and it be called a marriage of convenience.

His Uncle Christian is his heir. Until the day he and Sophia have a son, Christian stands as heir to the throne for his nephew.

LOL
It would be very nice to see either the kents or gloucesters at the wedding although I prefer the former. I wish the British Royal Family would have a permanent representative that would them in weddings and occassions of Minor and non reigning royal families.

I think Protestant; since they will be titled "Prince(ess)...of Prussia" and Royal Family of Prussia is Protestant.

1500 Invitations were send this past week.On the eve of the wedding the annual
Princess Kira of Prussia concert will be at the Berlin Concert Hall instead of Hechingen Castle.It is expected that many of the wedding guests will also attend the concert.

When they announced their engagement,my first thought was that this was an affair rather based on reason than on feelings.But as time was passing by,later one I changed my mind.It is probably that of the rarest cases when the love and the noble equality are united.I can't help admiring both of them and mostly Sophie,whose kindness and sincerity could be perceived from distance.
It's a pity that their wedding won't be aired online.I wish to know more about Sophie and her family.

This couple I've only recently discovered over the past month, and I am so intrigued by them that I now make it a point to check for news about them each time I visit TRF.

I just wish their wedding would be televised on the internet. The fact that they are both royal astounds and intrigues me to delight!

I don't think there is a chance of Live-Coverage. Probably some small reports in the boulevard magzines.

It will be hats as it takes place at noon. I also expect no tiaras at the Concert the evening before. perhaps if we are lucky evening gown and Smokings for the men but if it' like at the Burg Hohenzollern where it takes place every year) it will be short gowns for the woman and normals suits for the men.

Do we know who will attend? I just know that the invitations are out.
I´m sure Gloria Fürstin von Thurn und Taxis and her children, Karl Friedrich and Katharina of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, Schaumburg-Lippe will come.

The will not release any names of guests who have been invited. I guess a lot of the german royal and noble families will be present as Georg Friedrich attended lots of Weddings in the last years. Don't think too many foreign royals but perhaps Astrid and Lorenz of Belgium, as Loren sister-in-law Katharina is the sister of Sophie.
