Thanks for sharing those nice pics ! It’s amazing how many of the guests you’ve been able to identify.
I couldn’t identify the bridal tiara. It was not the one which the bride’s grandmother Princess Marie Louise wore at the wedding of Georg Friedrich and Sophie of Prussia. Nor was it the tiara which the groom’s sister Benigna wore at her wedding two years ago. It seems that the family has been able to hold on to an interesting collection of family jewels.

On this photo the tiara can be seen best. https://picasaweb.google.com/Royalrr...82430538282786
I would say it is the same as worn by Fürstin Marie Louise 2 years ago only worn in a differetn angel and therefore not so much of the tiara is visible.

I made this comparison of Princess Marie Luise with the floral tiara and Countess Dorothea. The first tiara looks like an asymmetrical floral wreath, while the second tiara looks more geometrical and symmetrical. But it is difficult to say. Maybe it is a smaller version without the large flowers on top.

Coming Monday. December 17th, Woizlawa-Feodora Elise Marie Elisabeth Prinzessin Reuß née Herzogin zu Mecklenburg will reach her centenary, her 100th birthday.

Woizlawa-Feodora is the only daughter of Adolf Friedrich Albrecht Heinrich Herzog zu Mecklenburg and of Victoria Feodora Agnes Leopoldine Elisabeth Prinzessin Reuß. Her mother died the day after Woizlawa-Feodora's birth.

The birthday-girl is extremely well connected:

- she was a first cousin to Hare Majesteit Juliana Emma Louise Marie Wilhelmina, Koningin der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, hertogin van Mecklenburg (grandmother of King Willem-Alexander)

- she was a first cousin to Hendes Majestæt Alexandrine Auguste, Dronning af Denmark née hertuginde af Mecklenburg (grandmother of Queen Margrethe II)

- she was a first cousin to Ihre Kaiserliche und Königliche Hoheit Cecilie Auguste Kronprinzessin des Deutschen Reiches, Kronprinzessin von Preußen née Herzogin von Mecklenburg (great-grandmother of Prince Georg Friedrich von Preußen)

- she was a first cousin to His Imperial Highness Cyrill Vladimirovich Romanov, Grand-Prince of Russia (grandfather of Maria Vladimirovna Romanova, Grand-Princess of Russia)

https://www.otz.de/web/zgt/suche/det...era-1337628484

Woizlawa-Feodora is the only witness alive of the Royal Wedding of Princess Juliana of the Netherlands and Prince Bernhard zur Lippe-Biesterfeld. She is number 20 on the picture:

A decade or so ago, Woizlawa-Feodora Prinzessin Reuß, Herzogin zu Mecklenburg and her son Heinrich XIII Prinz Reuß appeared in Dutch media because they complained that Queen Beatrix "ignored" them and they wanted the family relationships to be restored.

This happened after Queen Beatrix visited the Fürst and Fürstin zu Waldeck und Pyrmont at Schloss Arolsen. See picture: https://c8.alamy.com/comp/D4FEG7/que...rau-D4FEG7.jpg

After WWII Queen Wilhelmina rücksichtlos ended all contacts with German relatives which played prominent roles in the Nazi-era. This meant: no Mecklenburg, no Reuss, no Waldeck-Pyrmont etc.

The father of Princess Woizlawa-Feodora, Adolf-Friedrich Herzog zu Mecklenburg (a brother-in-law to Queen Wilhelmina) had personal contacts with Hermann Göring, dating back from WWI when the latter one was a meritorious pilot from the Luftwaffe. Later he regularly met Hermann Göring when he was Reichsforstmeister and Reichsjägermeister (Master of the forests and wildlife in the Reich).

Josias Erbprinz zu Waldeck und Pyrmont (a full cousin of Queen Wilhelmina) was a true Nazi. He was no less than SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Waffen-SS und Polizei. He was elbow-deep in the Nazi-machine.

It did hurt Princess Woizlawa-Feodora and Prince Heinrich that their cousin still had not contacted them, but made a public visit with hundreds of onlookers and lots of media at Schloss Arolsen. Picture: https://www.wlz-online.de/bilder/201...erence-5a7.jpg

I am afraid that this public frustration did not help Woizlawa-Feodora and Heinrich. Going to the media is a deadly sin in the eye of Beatrix.

What about Queen Jiuliana. Did the Princess still have contact with her?. Was she invited for her funeral?

Not that I know of. After WWII Queen Wilhelmina rücksichtlos ended all contacts with her German relatives. It seems also cries for help from relatives out of East-Prussia met deaf ears. Queen Wilhelmina came back in a pillaged country which endured famine during the winter of 1944. She lost any empathy for the plight of her German relatives (whom often lost everything in the War and by Communist confiscation).

In 1948 Queen Wilhelmina abdicated and it looks like Queen Juliana continued her ban: no Reuss, no Mecklenburg, no Waldeck-Pyrmont. However: in 1962 Louis Ferdinand von Preussen was a guest at the Silver Wedding. Picture: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5b/16...aa8f06ab24.jpg

Queen Wilhelmina and Queen Juliana however did help Armgard zur Lippe-Biesterfeld, von Sierstorpff-Cramm to escape East-Prussia. They pursued the Dutch Government to request a Wiedergutmachung for lost Lippe-Biesterfeld properties. And a lovely romantic stately house was bought for Princess Armgard. Picture: https://www.landgoedereninoverijssel...45_warmelo.jpg

I can understand the amazement of Princess Woizlawa-Feodora Reuß. The "nazism" of the Reuss and Mecklenburgs was nothing compared to that of Josias von Waldeck und Pyrmont, a true beast and criminal. So the revived contacts between Queen Beatrix and Fürst Wittekind were somewhat strange indeed.

Thank you for this very interesting contributions, @Duc et Pair!

So, one can say the dutch royals have their own head, when it comes to love affairs, Like Queen Beatrix, which married against the public will a German; or Willem with Maxima, she was not welcomed either by the public in the beginning.

But personal love is one thing for them and the love for their country can become very though for the relatives of their spouses. Very interesting!

I believe that why the relationship with Duke Adolf became rather tense was for a personal matter: in 1942 the private secretary of Prince Bernhard was arrested by the Nazi's in the Netherlands. His name was Jhr. Willem Roëll.

Roëll was a good friend of both Bernhard as Juliana. His wife Martine del Court van Krimpen was at the time living in Canada with Juliana. The couple's daughter Renée is the best friend of Beatrix and later became the godmother of King Willem-Alexander.

Bernhard apparently wrote several letters to Duke Adolf -who supposedly was a friend of Goering- to use his influence to get Roëll released. He did not lift a finger, either because he did not want to or because he was in no position to do so.

Roëll was later shot by the Nazi's. Bernhard and Juliana never forgave duke Adolf and never wanted to have anything to do with him. Bernhard and Beatrix were at the Helsinki Olympics in 1952 where they met the duke -who was a member of the German Olympic committee- They refused to greet him and publicly turned their backs to him.

Dss Woizlawa Feodora claimed in 2008 that her father was not a fanatic Nazi and that he wasn't even a member of the Nazi party. His friendship with Goering didn't mean much: they only hunted together a few times.

Note that Dss WF was still invited to the silver wedding celebrations of Bernhard and Juliana in 1962.

Fasseur wrote that Wilhelmina even took it out on the tableware. A Japanese set was renamed the Chinese set etc. She refused to speak one word of German after the war, which led to funny situation with Pss Armgard, whose Dutch was not very good.
