I don't think he wants to end up meeting his new bride right at the altar.



I would definately have to say that his mother is highly skilled at hiding him; despite this paparazzi culture and skill at finding people who are hiding out, I would definately say that his mother is skilled.
He should go online and meet someone, who might be interested in him. If he needs to be hidden, then, he is of no value. Poor thing, I take that back. I am sure he is a nice person, being manipulated by maniacs who see him as some Tsar in the future. If they didn't have money, he might be a shoe salesman. Please, shoe salesmen, forgive me.

He might not have too much luck with online dating really, it's a huge shark pool and there are a lot of women who would love to marry him, if only for his lineage. He strikes me as the type that would prefer to be a businessman, or someone who lives on base with fellow soldiers, going out on weekends and then squiring a nice girl to balls and parties. The problem comes from social climbers or gold diggers and then all the other assorted temptations that surround royal men, enthroned or dethroned.

He's not going to take well if he has to go from living with his mother ot living with his wife and being smothered in more tea, cakes, and then kids. I wonder what his mother would like in a wife, since she probably will arrange his marriage at some point. Why not? Probably a wife she can smother in ribbons and regale with stories of her life while obediently grooming herself to be a good Grand Duchess and then during afternoons, drown her in tea or other drinks.

How old is he, for starters? Has he no mind of his own. His mother is a wannabe, at best. Social Climber or gold diggers have a much better field than he. Real guys with big money and social standing. He is barely royal. A title to nothing and never will be. You would have to be desparate.

He might have a mind of his own, but his mother is extremely domineering and controlling and it's not easy to break free when you are raised knowing nothing else. I think he's thirty, he was born in 1981. ANyway, he has royal lineage, a Prince of Prussia, no small thing; he's eighth in line, not too bad and besides, if he's nice enough, chances are that he will end up marrying well.

Uh, okay. Who do you think would make a fitting bride, Cory? What traits do you think would make a good Consort?

Well, firstly, she will probably have to be of Russian Orthodox faith.

She'll probably have to convert before, to ensure that there are no issues with the claim.

I wonder who the very lucky girl will be. He might be domineered by his mother, but as a result he has little baggage, looks like a nice young man, and it looks like he understands self restraint and caution. As a Prince, that is a rare quality. He seems promising and very gentle and ready to have a lot of love to give.

Either way, he's a Prince and that's not something to look down on.

I think he's in a position where the right bride would either make him or break him, I am sure of that much.

She strikes me as a very strong willed woman whose looking out for her son's interests and protecting his interests. .
Exactly. There is no way that Maria will be pushed out; even if there isn't a throne, just as a mother, she will have an interest in making sure her son doesn't marry someone who makes his life miserable and someone who doesn't exploit him.

A woman who has a similiar personality would not get along with her but would clash and would not be wife material. A woman whose very laid back, easy going and who doesn't care to take a leadership role would probably be the most suitable wife for Georgi personality wise
Which is why I think Georgi will need a wife with the humility of the Virgin Mary.

I'm guessing that Maria has thoroughly researched every possibility of a bride of Royal background who may suit, with the idea that conversion to Orthodoxy would merely be a formality for a propertly motivated bride. I'm also guessing that she has a list of candidates firmly embedded in her mind. I would not be surprised in the least if she used her attendance at the Prussian wedding to conduct some surveillance to add to that list, or possibly eliminate candidates from it.

She's devoted her life to her son and his "position." I sincerely doubt she would leave this extraordinarily important event to chance.

They are devoted catholics, not suitable for Orthdox Russia.

I just had a hilarious visualization of Maria's mind going over prospective brides for her son teh way the main character did in "The Terminator." Mentally taking down traits and looks and personalities and running them over in her mind like a computer and some of the women being labeled "Void" or "Possible," or "Perfect."

NO different form what a lot of royal parents do.

I don't think they would convert to Orthodoxy for marry Grand Duke Georg. Her mother is a friend of the actual Pope.

To follow Pauline Law, she would have to be Orthodox and Maria's whole claim is based on the laws that she has claimed she's followed to the letter.
