Friday Flashback (on a Monday*): A Royal Childhood

Photo: Point de Vue
Hereditary Princess Sophie together with her father and four sisters Duchess Marie-Caroline, Duchess Helena, Duchess, Elizabeth and Duchess Maria-Anna. Born as the oldest of the five daughters of Duke Max in Bavaria and his wife née Countes Elizabeth Douglas - We already talked a little about the Douglas family last Saturday. - and thus being the great-great-granddaughter of the last King of Bavaria, Ludwig III, Hereditary Princess Sophie is the only wife of an heir to a European throne who was born a royal. In fact her style is higher than those of her in-laws; while the members of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein have traditionally been serene highnesses, the Hereditary Princess is styled as a royal highness.

[* As we generally seem to be having a pretty quiet time on our hands and I'm sure you don't mind. However, fear not, the quiet times are going to change in the next couple of days, at least Luxembourg-wise.]
