According to Dutch gossipsite Zijonline prince Edzard of Wied (1968) has been put on trial in Munich today for the possession and dealing in drugs. The prince and his girlfriend, a Petra U. had cocaine in their house when they were caught by the police. The couple said it was for their own use.

The prince is silent, Petra U. says she started with weed when she was 14 and only now, at 27, she tried the stuff that the prince offered.

The case was discovered when the couple went to the police to file a complaint against a Christian E., who tried to blackmail them. Christian received 45.000 euros this way, but after that he wanted 30.000 estra or he would reveal the prince's involvement with cocaine. Christian was caught by the police and sentensed to 2 years and 11 months in prison. After this the police did a search in the house of the prince as Christian claimed they could find 500 gram of cocaine there. The police 'only' found 21 gram.

Article in Dutch here; under the title 'Distant cousin of the Queen on trial for cocaine trade'.

Edzard is the son of the late Prince Ludwig Eugen of Wied and Helga Gemeinert. Ludwig Eugen was the 4th child of prince Dietrich, who in turn was the 2nd son of Fürst Friedrich of Wied and his wife Princess Pauline of Wurttemberg (daughter of king Wilhelm II of Wurttemberg). Friedrich was the 1st son of Fürst Wilhelm of Wied and Princess Marie of The Netherlands.

Exclamation Search for pictures

I'm looking for pictures of Carol Victor Prinz zu Wied, hereditary prince of Albania (1913-1973) and his wife Eileen Johnston (1922-1985)? Does anyone have some?

Thanks for the reply.

William, The Prince of Wied (reigned 1864-1907) was a supporter of colonial policy.
Between 1891 and 1892, he was chairman of the German anti-slavery committees.
