Yes, it says on preussen.de that she moved in to an apartment in the west wing of the castle in the late 1950s.

Royal Musings has the same information, but in english. There are also some pictures of the Princess.

My Almanach de Gotha has her living at Schloss, Westfügel in Bückeburg.
If that is a separate building she may have moved to the main schloss in later years.

Westflügel means 'west wing' (of the castle). Here an aerial view, (including the west wing ).

My condolences to her family.


Some information for those who are interested in geneology.

Princess Felicitas was fifth in an unbroken line of first-born children starting with Victoria, Princess Royal (Queen Victoria's eldest child). The line continues with her own eldest daughters, Friederike von der Osten, and her eldest granddaughter (Friederike’s eldest daughter), Felicitas von Reiche.

Princess Felicitas married Dinnies Karl von der Osten in 1958. They had two daughters, Friederike Thyra von der Osten (born in 1959) and Cecilie Felicitas von der Osten (born in 1967), as well as two sons - Dinnies-Wilhelm von der Osten (1962 - 1989) and Hubertus Christoph (born in 1964) von der Osten.
In 1972, shortly after her divorce, Princess Felicitas married for the second time to Jorg Hartwig von Nostitz-Wallwitz. They had one daughter - Diana Renata von Nostitz-Wallwitz (1974).

Princess Felicitas has descendants through her daughters - only: her eldest son, Dinnies-Wilhelm died in 1989 (aged 27) without heirs. Her second son, Hubertus Christoph (aged 45) is not married and has no legitimate heirs.

Of Princess Felicitas 3 daughters, 2 eldest are married and have issues. Friederike Thyra von der Osten married Bernhard Ernst Dieter von Reiche in 1984. They have 3 children: Felicitas Catharini von Reiche (born in 1986), Victoria Cecilie von Reiche (born in 1989) and Donata Friederike Diana (born in 1992).
Cecilie Felicitas von der Osten married Ole Hugo Marxen in 1997. They have one son, Julius Dinnies Ole Marxen (born in 1998).

Does someone know the birthdates of the two boys?
The younger one, Hugo was baptised this summer so apparently he was born in the beginning of this year.

That's a sad news; another generation that ends...

Christmas Customs of the Hohenzollern

With Christmas approaching, I was wondering about Christmas traditions of the Hohenzollern. Does the whole family gather at the castle or do the various members celebrate with just their immediate families?

Christie's concluded an auction this week of items largely from the collection of Princess Luise of Prussia, who died on 23 March 2009 at Schloss Bückeburg.

The link to the conclusion of the auction is here:

EUROPEAN NOBLE AND PRIVATE COLLECTIONS | Fine Art Auction | Search Results | Christie's

The total yielded, including the 29.75% buyer's premium, was 2,318,162 Euro; the items themselves, then, would have sold for an aggregate of 1,786,638 Euro, which as of 16 December 2009 would be approximately $1.43MM USD, or 890,000 pounds.

My husband purchased something from the sale but I'm not allowed to know what it is; evidently St. Nicholas is going to leave it for me on Christmas.

This question shows how little I know about things royal and princely in Germany, but I'm going to ask it anyway. Furst Friedrich Wilhelm was the Head of the princely line of Hohenzollern. Prinz Georg Frederich of Prussia is the Head of the House of Hohenzollern according to this website: Preussen.de - Prinz Georg Friedrich von Preussen

Could someone please explain this to me. How closely would these two men have been related and what is the difference in their respective positions? I know that Prinz Georg Frederich is the descendant of Kaiser Wilhelm II.

The two Houses descend from Friedrich I, Burgrave of Nuremberg and Count of Zollern; at his death in 1205 his eldest son Friedrich II inherited both the titles, but in 1518 he renounced to the Burgraviate of Nuremberg in favour of his younger brother Konrad. The Royal House of Prussia descends from Konrad, while the Princely House of Hohenzollern(-Sigmaringen) descends from Friedrich.

I'm not sure Georg Friedrich can be called Head of the House of Hohenzollern; he surely is the Head of the Royal House of Prussia, which is completely separated from the Princely House of Hohenzollern; I guess that the Head of the branch descending from the eldest son of Friedrich I (= Karl Friedrich, Prince of Hohenzollern) should be the Head of the entire House of Hohenzollern.

Btw, Georg Friedrich and Karl Friedrich are Heads of two different Houses.

Georg Friedrich was born far after 1918 :). So he is only a royal highness, because he is formerly just the heir of the throne of prussia. To be an imperial highness he must be voted by the counties/ federal states/ free cities of germany.
As far as I know, only the German Crown Prince and the German Crown Princess were Imperial and Royal Highnesses, but all the other members of the Prussian Royal House were/are "mere" Royal Highnesses, beyond they were born before or after the end of the Empire.

Actually I think it was just the Crown Prince and his wife who were Imperial Highnesses while all the other children of the Emperor (who of course was also an Imperial Highness as well as his wife) were just Royal Highnesses.
So Crown Prince Wilhelm and his wife Cecilie were the last German Imperial Highnesses.

Yes it where the Crown Prine and his spuse and since 1918 the Head of the House and his spouse. So Georg Friedrich is His Imperial and Royal Highness as was the late Prince Louis Ferdinand.
