Here is an obituary from the Telegraph about him:
Count Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees - Telegraph

The obituary mentions that in 1975 he was recognised by the Lord Lyon King of Arms as feudal Baron of Inchdrewer (which I think is his only official and undisputed title).

The Telegraph obit includes a 1953 photograph of the Duchess with Count Robin.
It states that their son, Patrick Grinnell-Milne de la Lanne-Mirlees, became the mayor of Delmenhorst in Lower Saxony in 2006.

Princess Elisabeth von Urach passed away at Munich on 20 September 2012, aged 59.

She was born on 10 December 1952 at Regensburg, the second daughter of Prince Eberhard and Princess Iniga von Urach, née Princess von Thurn und Taxis (herself the daughter of Prince Ludwig and Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, née Princess of Luxembourg and Nassau).
Princess Elisabeth never married and didn't have children.
She is survived by her siblings Amelie, Karl Anselm, Wilhelm (the current Duke von Urach) and Eberhard and their families.

Message received by the Administrators...



The leading monarchist movement of Lithuania, The Royal House of Lithuania Association, is honored to inform that

HSH Prince Inigo von Urach, Count of Württemberg

great-grandson of the last King Mindaugas II of Lithuania,

was elected and recognized as the legitimate pretender to the Lithuanian Royal Throne.


Prince Inigo von Urach (born 1962) is the direct descendant of the last Lithuanian king Mindaugas II, a Roman Catholic, a family man, and dedicated father of 3 children (2 sons and a daughter). He is connected to the Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, British, Russian, Monaco, Bavarian and Portuguese Royal families by birth.

This is a heavily edited version of the longer message which can be read in full in the Royal Families of Poland and Lithuania thread.

The Duchess of Wurttemberg has allowed the editors of Noblesse & Royautes to view her family photograph album. Noblesse & Royautes have now posted the article, with lots of photos. The captions in the article tell you who's who:

Google Translate

I think it's nice of the Duchess of Wurttemberg to show the editors of Noblesse & Royautes her photos, which were nice to look at. This makes me want to learn more about her and her family.

The Duchess of Württemberg showed Noblesse & Royautes (who also interviewed her, if I've understood correctly) her photo album. There's also some interesting information about The Duchess - she likes to go to Paris for short holidays and visits museums, galleries and exhibitions whilst she is there. She has a foundation, "The Diane von Württemberg Herzogin, Prinzessin von Frankreich-Stiftung Foundation", which specializes in the art and culture of Württemberg:

Diane de France, duchesse de Wurtemberg : sa fondation et ses futurs projets artistiques | Noblesse & Royautés

In this article, The Duchess talks about her work with sculptures and gives Noblesse & Royautes an idea of what a day in her workshop is like. The workshop is located in Altshausen Castle:

Hereditary Prince Alfred of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha was engaged to Elsa of Wurttemberg. Elsa was the daughter of Grand Duchess Vera Konstantinovna of Russia. Why was the engagement broken off?
King William II was instrumental in the establishment of the Wurttembergischer Yacht Club in 1911 on Lake Constance.

I seem to recall reading that the Wurttemberg family heard rumors of his "unsavioroury' behaviour.

The foundation also helps poor and disabled children in poor countires like for example in Brazil.

Thanks for posting the link, it was an interesting read and some nice photos. The duchess had some nice words for her sister-in-law, the duchess of Montpensier. And it seems that her sister-in-law Marion, widow of prince Thibaut, accompanies her to Brasil from time to time. I completely forgot that the late countess of Paris passed away in Württemberg.

She passed away in Paris not in Württemberg. But she often spend the holidays with the Württemberg Family and as far as i kinow was very close to them. One of her last wishes was that the Wedding of her granddaugther Fleur who took place only 1 month after her death should go on as planned.

The duchess was in Belgium to celebrate the birthday of her sister Helene de Limburg Stirum.

The article contains several pictures and is written in French.

King William I of Wurttemberg promoted the Zollverein, the German customs union.
The Zollverein was a customs union established to eliminate tariff barriers.

Duke Wilhelm has a distibct resemblance to his mother. If the young man has to make a royal marriage I think a suitable spouse would be Archduchess Eleanore of Austria, the eldest daughter of Ad Karl
