Re: Dutch Royals at Prussian-Russian wedding
The gentleman peering around Empress Hermine's head is Prince Karl of Leiningen. He was to died in a Russian Prisoner of war camp in 1946. His wife was the Grand Duchess Maria a sister the Kira.
I found this photo of Princess Juliana & Prince Bernard attending the wedding of her cousins Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia with Grand Duchess Kira Kirillovna of Russia. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ac/0d/4e/ac0d4e33dadaaa5899ef9ee70505dff3.jpg
Does someone know if this particular occasion was celebrated in the Netherlands?
Of those pictured I can identify Grand Duchess Victoria Feodorovna (the bride's mother), Prince Bernhard, Crown Princess Cecilie of Prussia (the groom's mother and Juliana's half-first cousin), German Emperor Wilhelm II & his second wife Empress Hermine and Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia (the groom's father). Seated on the floor Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich (the bride's brother), then the bride & groom, Grand Duke Ciryl Kirillovich (the bride's father) and Princess Juliana.
