Has to be the royal world's longest running engagement. Wasn't there a similar case back a few years ago between a Wurtemberg duchess and someone else? Then there was an engagement between a Murat princess and an Orleans prince, which also died a quiet death. Why announce it and then let it linger so long if you're having second thoughts for any reason? Makes no sense to me, and I can't figure out an explanation for this one. Could it have something to do with the Aosta's dynastic claims? Could they have discovered that Pss. Olga may not be able to bear children?
It where Prince Jean of France, Duke of Vedôme and Duchess Tatiana of Oldenbrug. and also Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Elvire Paste.
