Her Royal Highness Princess Stephanie of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha married her long time companion Jan Stahl at Friedenstein castle in Gotha, Germany.  The Princess and her new husband planted and watered a tree on the grounds of the castle following their civil wedding.  They will have their religious wedding at the St. Moritz Churc in Coburg, tomorow (July 7).  Mr. Stahl 49, who has a son by a previous relationship, is an engineer at BMW, while the Princess 46, works as a muscle therapist for dogs and horses.  She is the eldest child of the current Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.  This is the first marriage for both.

I wish the happy couple well, however given the ages involved it would be too much to wish for the 'little pitter patter of tiny feet', however I wish for a long and happy union in it's stead.

It will have escaped the attention of few here that yesterday saw Britain's second royal wedding of the year, this time between Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank. It was a more low-key affair than the Sussex nuptials, as was only to be expected, but in its way just as successful an occasion. I was particularly touched, as many were, by the radiant happiness displayed by both bride and groom, and thought Princess Eugenie looked every bit as beautiful as a bride ought. The best pictures I have seen to date are in this link, also containing many details of the dress and accesories. Note however that the point made at the end about the origin of the tradition of myrtle being carried cannot be correct; both grandmothers of Prince Albert were dead long before he and Queen Victoria wed, or met for that matter.

Princess Eugenie arrives for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank at St George"s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

People who have read a few wedding reports, as I have, may have seen that the couple do have a blood relationship, as I did. The relationship is half-blood third cousins twice removed, the mutual ancestor being Thomas Coke, 2nd Earl of Leicester of Holkham, himself a descendant of Charles II through the 1st Duke of Richmond, one of that monarch's several illegitimate sons. Neither particularly close nor ridiculously remote, the relationship would certainly be within the scope of the Genealogics calculator, so long as Mr Brooksbank was included in their database. Which he was, so I thought a few people at least might like to see the details.

Princess Ayako of Takamado, daughter of the late Prince Takamado of Japan and cousin of Emperor Akihito, has married Mr. Kei Moriya.  While the ceremony was beautiful, it underlines the ever shrinking nature of the Japanese Imperial Family as its female members marry out of it.  Princesses must relinquish their titles and status as Imperial Family members upon marriage, which means that the Imperial family which is made up of only five males (two of whom are in their eighties) and now six females.  One of the six princesses is to marry next year, which will leave five princesses.

A few days earlier, the Princess had gone to bid farewell to the Emperor and Empress as she prepared to exit royal life as has become traditional.  It is her last court appearance as an Imperial Highness and a Princess.

Released today to mark the future king’s milestone, the images, taken in the gardens of Clarence House in September, show Charles as few see him, a loving grandparent at ease with his surroundings

The Prince of Wales turns 70 today. I am sure all here will join me in wishing His Royal Highness, pictured above with the Duchess of Cornwall and his children and grandchildren, a very happy birthday with many more to come.

My favorite among the Prince of Wales' birthday pictures.  A really lovely image.
