H.I.R.H. Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia and Princess Sophie von Isenburg: Wedding Information and Celebrating 950 Years of the House of Hohenzollern

In the recent edition of the German magazine, Bild.de, there is a short and sweet article about H.I.R.H. Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia and his lovely fiancée, Princess Sophie von Isenburg.

The journalist notes that H.I.R.H. Prince Georg Friedrich would be the Emperor of Germany today if things had been a wee bit different all those long years ago.

Anyway, there is another reason for this article:  On October 1, 2011, Burg Hohenzollern (you know that modest pad just south of Stuttgart, Germany) will celebrate 950 Years of the House of Hohenzollern.

Per the official website for the house:

We celebrate the anniversary “950 Years House Hohenzollern”. We are looking forward to welcome you, your relatives and friends. Enjoy free entrance, entertainment and a piece of birthday cake for everyone!

The interior rooms are open without guided tours at this day – so you can discover them at your own will.  For information feel free to contact our Castle staff in the interior rooms.

Admission: free

Finally, the German newspaper, Zollern-Alb Kurier, notes some interesting details about the upcoming marriage between Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie.  According to the journalist, the priests over-seeing the wedding ceremony will be Father Gregor Graf Henckel von Donnersmarck and Evangelical pastor Michael Wohlrab.  Princess Sophie will wear a veil that is a Isenburg heirloom.  The couple will leave the church in a traditional carriage.  There will be roughly 300 guests at their reception which will be held at the orangery.  The dress code:  For men a dark or cutaway suit.  For women an elegant dress or suit with a hat.

A Regal Royal Wedding in Vegas…Cancelled! Oh Quel Dommage.

Sooo, remember when I reported about the upcoming regal royal wedding between Carl Alexander Prinz von Hohenzollern and his beloved bikini model fiancée, Maya Sonja, that was to take place in respectful Las Vegas, Nevada at the elegant Little White Chapel?


Well, it never happened.

According to the German magazine, Bunte, the dashing couple had to cancel their nuptials because the faux Prince Frederic von Anhalt couldn’t make it.  You see, his lovely wife, Zsa Zsa Gabor, is seriously ill.  Unfortunately, she was recently admitted to Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, CA for Pneumonia.  Ms. Gabor is in intensive care.  However, the faux prince had time to speak to the press about two things.  First, his wife’s failing health whereupon he noted to a Bunte journalist:

She [Zsa Zsa] had suddenly become short of breath. This has happened twice already, but this time it was really very serious. I called the emergency doctor at noon, who immediately referred to the hospital and now she is on a respirator.

Regarding the wedding between the German prince and the rich American bikini model, the faux prince said, “We have to wait.”  

Good idea, Einstein.  

His second announcement… wait for it… “I have a new reality show!”  Yup, that’s right folks.  The faux prince is about to film a new reality show about what it is like to be a “royal” living in Los Angeles, CA; the program will also feature — get this — Carl Alexander Prinz von Hohenzollern and his fiancée, Maya Sonja.  Blabbing to TMZ about the new show, the faux Prince Frederic von Anhalt said, “Once Carl gets hitched, he and his new wife will move in with myself and Zsa Zsa Gabor where they will have their own floor in Zsa Zsa’s mansion…”  According to the British newspaper, Express, the faux prince is praying that his new show will pay for his lifestyle and his seriously ill wife’s medical bills.

Stay classy, Fred.

The Invitations to the Upcoming Wedding Between H.I.&R.H. Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia and H.S.H. Princess Sophie von Isenberg Have Been Sent Out

Well, ladies and gentleman invitations to the royal wedding between H.I.&R.H.Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia and his fiancée, H.S.H. Princess Sophie von Isenberg, were recently sent out according to Bild magazine.

The article notes that 1500 people have been invited, ” [they] were sent to German and international nobility, “ according to Michael Blankart, a representative for Preussen.de. Even though Mr. Blankart announced that nobles were invited I sincerely hope that several European royals were also invited (which I am sure they were.)

The couple will marry in Potsdam, Germany at the Friedenskirche on August 27, 2011.

Another Royal Wedding (of Sorts) to Take Place This Thursday Between Carl Alexander Prinz von Hohenzollern and American Maya Sonja. I Know What You Are Thinking Right Now… “WHO?!!!”

According to the German magazines Bild and Bunte, Carl Alexander Prince von Hohenzollern (a man married a thousand times before) will tie the knot — again — this Thursday to a 35 year old wealthy American named, Maya Sonja.

Apparently, the couple met at a dinner party hosted by Frederic faux Prince von Anhalt (you know, Zsa Zsa Gabor’s weird husband who made headlines when he swallowed a bumble bee, and when he glued his eyes shut, and when he was caught by the Beverly Hills police butt naked, tied to his steering whilst crying hysterically in his car a few years ago.)

The faux Prince von Anhalt thought it would be a brilliant idea to play match maker between the two and in the end, he was successful.  The couple immediately fell in love. “She is very slim, very beautiful, very rich,” says von Anhalt to Bunte journalist, Elke Habekost, about the future princess.

Miss Sonja, who is allegedly a bikini model and a dabbles in costume design here and there, is thrilled to become a princess according to faux Prince von Anhalt.

The romantic royal wedding of the week will take place in regal Las Vegas, Nevada at the elegant Little White Chapel according to Bild journalist, Mark Pittelkau.  The bride will wear a tiara and will be brought to the chapel in a carriage like a true soon-to-be princess and the prince will wear his Orders.  After the ceremony Miss Maya will be known as Maya Princess von Hohenzollern.

Now, I am sure you are thinking that this has got to be  a joke and I’m sure you threw up in your mouth a little after reading what faux Prince Fredric von Anhalt had to say… and… well all I can say is…I feel your pain.
