Dear Marengo,

thank You for the information, although it is sad news. There have been great dynastical ties between our Royal Houses since Luise Henriette of Oranien married Friedrich Wilhelm the Great Elector. We all think with gratidue also of the great hospitality of Your country to our last Kaiser after World War I.
I hope that there are no general frictions or even problems in Your Royal family that would keep them tied at home.

Lot's of greetings to the Netherlands

I guess that most of the people invited will have friendly ties with Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie. It is no state occasion so they will probably mainly invite people who they call friends rather than people who they are just related to but don't share a friendship with. As far as I remember Georg Friedrich attended none of the weddings of the Dutch princes.

"There won't be Queens and neither Princess Letizia nor the Duchess of Cambridge" says Michaela Blankart, head of the chief agency of the formerly reigning houses of Prussia.

I am sure that Princess Michael of Kent will be there. She spoke with them during Archduke Otto's Funerals !

That's possible, I also think that it's possible that we will see quite a few Habsburgs, maybe members of the Belgian, Luxembourgish and Liechtenstein royal/grand ducal/princely families as well.

I´m still surprised about the broadcast of the wedding, just thought they release some pics.
I hope to see Albert T&T, Saschana will be enchanted, too
And maybe Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg with Princess Benedikte.

Hmm,that was just because pushy always trails on the heels of others,more a case of disorganised feet than an invite to Potsdam.
I don't think any of the British RF will be in attendance really....
And,can't believe anyone is really looking forward to have a EA of Hannover on your wedding list other then of the old bonds none of them ever lived into.Nor schumi and his blond golddigger catch,or was it the other way 'round...anyway..mentally incontinent spoiled rotten little boys,a far far cry from the discrete and dignified groom to be really.

Well, I think that it is more likely that EA junior will attend. The article doesn't mention whether it will be father or son.

Other guests will include Matthias Platzeck, the minister president of Brandenburg and the mayor of Hechingen (the place were Hohenzollern castle is situated).

And regarding Princess Michael, I don't know whether she will attend but she and her family have close friendships with other German royal and noble families, for example the Thurn und Taxis. Of course that doesn't mean that she also is friends with either the Hohenzollern or the Isenburgs.

As an matter of course ONE member of the Hanover family will attend, because all important german royal families send at least one representant.
But EA senior won't even have the health condition to take such an event (and probably blame the whole family!).

I guess EA junior and/or Christian will come. Junior and Georg have quite a good relationship I guess (I saw them on pictures together). Or another member of the Hanoveranians will come, because there are some other princes left.

Anyway Georg attended several events in Monaco. He has no relationship to the Grimaldi family except the connection via Caroline and her stepchildren.

Maybe even Caroline will come.
I take my bet also on : Albert and Charlene and even on the Kents. Princess Michael of Kent attended several minor events for the Queen in the german/ austrian region, because she comes from german/ austrain nobility and speaks german.

We should never forget the royal second row: There is no Letizia, but may be Elena ? No Mary, but may be Marie ?

Lucien, you're great with your comments. Schumi? Whoever that is, I got a laugh out of your comment and the spoiled rotten little boys comment was great too. One correction, though. I believe the word is mentally imcompetant, not incontinate! But then again, maybe 'Schumi' is incompetant, and EA Senior, incontinate!
