  1. This is the true royal wedding, unlike Prince William, Princess Victoria of Sweden, Prince Frederick of Denmark, Prince Haakon of Norway, Prince Felipe of Spain and Prince Albert of Monaco who married commoners, Prince Georg married a fellow royal. This is the kind of match we, royalists, will be pleased to follow. May they will live happily ever-after. This is just an observation Prince Georg looked like Prince Harry!

    After the wedding, the couple seems to have disappeared!! I’d like to have more news of them. I would hope they would become a popular European “Royal”, or ex-Royal, Couple, whatever the case may be, Germany should have a national familial face to help solidify itself. Am I wrong?? I think I’m right but I don’t live in Germany,

  3. Tonio says:

    @Royalty Fashion: rofl, Germany is no longer a Monarchy and Royals don´t exist anymore. As much as I adore the two, they are not Royals, and Sophie would have been also not a Royal in Monarchy, since she is “just” from a Princely family. AFAIK she wouldn´t have been seen as suitable for the future Emperor, because she was not from a Royal Family, not sure with that.
