I, too, am very interested in this tragedy and have myself asked about it in another royal message board. And I remember getting answered that Cecilia was pregnant, when the plane crashed. Then a dead baby's body was found in or near the crushed plane. It seems then that Cecilia gave birth just before the accident or the baby come off out of Cecilias ripped body. Sounds horrible.
Has some other heard of this story? It is quite true as far as I know.

Cecilie of Hessen-Darmstadt

I try to add a couple of photos of the Hessen family.

And I am very sorry, but I don't know any more where I got the pictures from.

In the first picture are little Johanna with her uncle Ludwig and his wife.
In the second picture are the Hessen family, Donatus, Celilia and the children.

Amazing how easy such things were back then. Today she would not have been allowed to fly that late in her pregnancy!
I've actually been surprised how much travelling Pncss Maxima is doing so late in her pregnancy.

Women are not banned from flying until the last 3 weeks, and we don't know how far into the 8th month she was.

I believe it was heavy fog, the plane was flying too low, and it crashed into an industrial chimney.

Belgians and S-C & G

kelly9480, still investigating this. On the Belgian RF website everyone is "of Belgium", but no mention of House or Family name, or "Dynasty" name.

This is what Wikipedia says:

Royal House

The term Royal House refers to the official designation and name of a royal family instead of surname.

Unlike Europeans, most of the world's Royal Families do not have surnames: those that have adopted them rarely use them. They are referred to instead by their titles, often related to an area ruled or once ruled by that family. The name of the Royal House is not a surname, just a way of identifying individuals.


Reigning European Sovereign Houses.

The fact that they call themselves Glücksburg doesn't negate the fact that they belong to the house of Oldenburg.

I can call myself anything I want, but I still being to the von Hamm family.

Thanks a lot for ...

Thanks a lot,

for these information! Knew the history of this tragic Princess’s family, but nothing for the names and date of b. of children. As well as for the (so bad) chance of 3rd child.

Special thanks to Morgaine and Alexandra!

The name of Pss in greek: ΚΑΙΚΙΛΙΑ (Καικιλια) [“AI” is diphthong, proncd as e in red]

Tatiana and Moritz von Hesse

I beleive that I read that TRH Tatiana and Moritz von Hesse are divorced; yet they always seem to attend functions together (I highly commend them). If they are divorced, when did they and why? I also read that Tatiana resides at her brother, Furst Richard SWB's estate/castle. How close are the two families. Also, I believe that the Hesse's castle is now a Hotel? Please correct me if I am wrong.

Ludwig was born in 1837 and died 1892, his parents were Prince Karl of Hesse and Princess Elisabeth of Prussia. He married Queen Victoria's second daughter Alice. They had 7 children: Viktoria, Elisabeth, Irene, Ernst Ludwig, Friedrich Wilhelm, Alix and Marie.
Friedrich Wilhelm called Frittie died when he was 3 years old. He fell out of a window and didn't survive his injuries due to hemophilia. Marie called May also died in childhood. In 1878 all the children except Elisabeth had diphteria and May died on 16th November. A month later the Grandduchess Alice died from the same illness.
