No the other side of the Prince, the lady with the dark dress. It looks she is wearing the decorations of a Dame Grand Cross in the Order of the House of Orange, the same as Princess Laurentien wears. I doubt if it is Princess Armgard or not.

I have found a description of this Group picture on one of my books. According to it is the Fürstin zu Hohenlohe-Langeburg whch would be Fürstin Alexandra, née Princess of Great Britain.

Wow, thank you for your effort! Even in exile, this group picture would be -to today's standards- a grand royal wedding actually.

Grand Duke Dmitir Pavlovitch, Princess Ina Marie, Empress Hermine, Prince Oskar, Prince Adalbert, Princess Adelheid, Hereditary Princess zu Salm (not mentioned which line).

Thank you, Stefan! That is very interesting.
I find it lovely how unceremoniously people seat themselves on the carpet, even the future Queen of the Netherlands! You don't see that anymore these days.

What an impressive group actually... I think with "Prince Wilhelm" (on the floor, next to the bride) is meant Prince August Wilhelm, the fourth son of Crown Prince Wilhelm and brother to the groom? Look at the many interconnections via the Mecklenburg-Schwerins in the front row alone...:

SEATING

August Wilhelm, Prince of Prussia (brother of the groom)
son of
Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia
and of
Cecilie, Duchess von Mecklenburg-Schwerin

Kira Kyrillovna Romanova, Grand-Duchess of Russia (the bride)
daughter of
Kyrill Vladimirovich Romanov, Grand-Duke of Russia
and of
Viktoria Melita, Princess von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha

Louis Ferdinand, Prince of Prussia (the groom)
son of
Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia
and of
Cecilie, Duchess von Mecklenburg-Schwerin

Kyrill Vladimirovich Romanov, Grand-Duke of Russia (father of the bride)
son of
Vladimir Alexandrovich Romanov, Grand-Duke of Russia
and of
Marie, Duchess von Mecklenburg-Schwerin

Juliana, Princess of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, Duchess von Mecklenburg-Schwerin
daughter of
Wilhelmina, Queen of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau
and of
Heinrich, Duke von Mecklenburg-Schwerin

Cecilie, Princess of Prussia (sister of the groom)
son of
Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia
and of

The fourth child of Crown Prince Wilhelm and Crown Princess Cecilie was Friedrich (1911-1966). They didn't have any son named August Wilhelm (who instead was the fourth son of Emperor Wilhelm II and Empress Augusta).
Instead isn't the man seating on the floor near to the bride her brother Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich?

Wow if it is Vladimir (Maria Vladimirovna's father) then it is really a small world and the Kaiserzeit is not all that long ago: Maria's own father (and Beatrix' own parents) have met the Kaiser. That is what fascinates me in royal history.

Of course I meant the fourth child of Wilhelm II, brother of the groom. But Vladimir is entirely possible too.

It would then be the uncle of the groom, not his brother

Btw, I've checked some pictures of Grand Duke Vladimir as a young man (i.e. this one) and now I'm pretty sure that it was him indeed in the picture sat on the floor.

O only noticd now that Prince Wilhelm the older brothr of the groom is not in this pic. On the pic in my book he is seating on the floor right to Grand Duke Vladimir.

Here it is: http://s5.photobucket.com/user/royal...0s55r.jpg.html

I don't undestand how the most important guest of that day in House Doorn (Netherlands) is sitting on the floor.
To me on the floor next to the bride is her brother.
On the front row , brother , sister (bride) and their father. Their Mother Marla Melita already passed away.

Well, Princess Juliana had the seat-of-honour, next to the Kaiser himself, see picture. I think it was a relaxed atmosphere "entre nous" and seeing her family links to the Hohenzollerns, the Romanovs, the Mecklenburgs, etc. in indeed was "family".

I found another wedding group picture: View image: preussen wedding1
There is no Kaiser in this one, so I think it was made at the orthodox wedding in Potsdam.
