# Royals ~ Other

Photos and information on Royals that don't fit onto my other boards.... they could be from a small principality or a Royal in name only, or I just don't know what board they go onto yet.

MYROYALS: Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie, Prince Daniel, Crown Princess Victoria, Crown Prince Felipe, Crown Princess Letizia, Crown Princess Mary, Crown Princess Maxima, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, Crown Princess Mathilde, Crown Prince Philippe and Crown Prince Haakon in Apeldoorn. They annually attend a Crown Princely Couples weekend. This will be the last event attended by Willem-Alexander and Maxima-they will become King and Queen on April 30.

After becoming a widow, the Duchess of Alba remarried on 16 March 1978 to Jesús Aguirre y Ortiz de Zárate (1937–2001), a Doctor of Theology and a former Jesuit priest. The wedding caused a scandal in Spain during the 1970s, as Aguirre was illegitimate.

Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, 18th Duchess of Alba, in 2006. The Duchess is a descendant of King James II of England, VII of Scotland, through his illegitimate son James Fitz-James, Duke of Berwick (1670–1734), born of a relationship with Arabella Churchill, only sister of the Duke of Marlborough, making her a distant relative of both Sir Winston Churchill and Diana, Princess of Wales, descendants of Arabella's daughter Henrietta FitzJames.

    No offense intended, but she is scary looking.

  • Maura Petzolt

    She unfortunately is one of those people who have had WAY too much plastic surgery. If you look at photos of her as a young woman, she was pretty. But my guess is insecure based on the amount of surgery and the amount of young husbands. Don't know the whole story. Sad though.

    That is sad. Thanks for sharing the info!

Duchess of Alba Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart (R) and her husband Alfonso Diez are seen on 25 July 2014 in Saint Jean de Luz, France.

The last king of Italy - Umberto II reigning for only 33 days and he was known as the "May King". He married Princess Maria Jose of Belgium. King Vittorio Emanuele III abdicated in favor of Umberto II in an effort to save the Italian kingdom after WW II but a referendum removed Umberto II though the vote was highly controversial, very close. Umberto II lived the rest of his life in exile, he never set foot in his native land again. He died in 1983 in Switzerland.

Empress Gobele Wan Rong [c1920-1940] One of the sadder stories that arose from the end of the Qing monarchy was the story of Wan Rong, otherwise known as the Last Empress of China 婉容皇后. She was chosen at the age of 17 to marry a powerless monarch. This beautiful well educated girl from one of Manchuria's best families was to be turned into a wasted emotionally wrecked drug addict by her loveless marriage in 1922 to the last emperor of China, PuYi 溥儀.

Wedding of Alexandra Miller (with father Robert Miller) to Prince Alexander von Furstenberg 1995

HM Queen Isabel of Spain with son His Royal Highness Prince Alfonso of Spain

Her wedding has encountered strong opposition from none other than the King of Spain Juan Carlos, who feared for the House of Alba as well as the considerable estate the Duchess was expected to pass on to her children. Carabantes had to formally renounce any claim to her wealth, the inheritance has been paid in advance, so to speak. The Duchess is now free to be a bride again: the woman whose first nuptials were the last feudal marriage in Spain can rightfully claim to have given it all up...
