Re: Attending minor royals

I did not see Albanian or Montenegrin representation, but I would not have expected to. Neither family has a close connection to the late Duke Edinburgh.
Those former reigning families that were there were people with close connections to Prince Philip, many his nieces/nephews/close cousins or godchildren.
"Minor royals" is usually applied to distant relatives, in case, could be the Gloucesters or the Kents.
Considering you wrote about Pr.Alexander of Serbia, I guess that by "minor royals" you meant heads of non-ruling houses.
If that's the case, you might have seen Pss. Margarita Custodian of the roumanian crown and her husband Pr. Radu, and the Crown Princes of Hesse or Baden.
At Prince Philip's memorial service there was an abundance of pictures of attending royals among them being the Crown Prince of Serbia. Were their other minor royals? Albania or Montenegro for instance?
