Do you have the link to the board you mentioned? Thanks
I don't know where they were sitting. I saw it mentioned on another board with photos of them arriving.
I forgot Liechtenstein. That was Prince Stefan.
Yes, after answering Jane’s post, I read about the Savoys. There is even a video of the Savoy Princesses curtseying to Queen Sofia and the Belgian royal couple,
I also read about a Liechtenstein Prince who is Ambassador to the Holy See.
But Monaco? No news about them. And they should have been seating with the rest of reigning royals. The precedence was Germany, Italy, Royals and them Presidents. Next to Queen Sofia we could see Presidents of different countries. Where were the Monacos?
Monaco was presented as well:
Prince Albert, Princess Charlene, Princess Caroline, and one of Pss Antoinette's daughters
Non-reigning that I know of:
Pss Clotilde of Savoy and her daughter, Vittoria
Archduke Eduard of Austria (Ambassador from Hungary to Holy See)
I'd be very surprised if there not some Bavarians there.
Afaik, only the Belgian royal couple and Queen Sofia of Spain from reigning monarchies. No idea about non-reigning Royal Houses.
Just watched this on YouTube: she stood next to the king and queen of the Belgians during the ceremony. Do you know of other royals in attendance?
Queen Sofia will represent the Spanish Royal House at Pope Benedict’s funeral.
