I also wanted to know how the Albanians saw this wedding. Will there be a new referendum to decide between monarchy and Republic?

From what I have gathered at social media, the opinions are very mixed, from people who would like to see Leka as King to people who curse on Zog and his family (usually the 'he is a traitor, thief etc.). I doubt the wedding will spark another referendum, BUT it gave the Royal Family more attention. Older people remember the Zogs, but younger people have no clue about them.

I hope the marriage will help you start discussing the subject of monarchy in Albania.

The Zogus have had an interesting relationship to some American politicians in the past.

Quote:
In the 1960s, the self-styled royal struck up a friendship with Ronald Reagan. As a gift, he sent the future U.S. president a baby elephant named Gertie—a moniker deemed unrefined by Nancy Reagan, who rechristened the animal "GOP."
From Time's profile on Leka I

"5 April the Albanian Royal Court organized a remembrance ceremony at the Royal Mausoleum in memory of HM King Leka I of the Albanians on the occasion of his 78th Birthday anniversary.
The Crown Prince spoke of his fathers life and thanked the participants for their support. He made a special mention and thanked the Leaders of the Legality Party and the Albanian Conservative Party for their support and attendance."

I have read that Marie Eleonore of Wied, daughter of William of Wied, was sentenced to hard labour and died in an internment camp in Romania during the 1950s.

Does anyone have any more detail regarding her reason for being there?
