There are only two more days until the nuptials between H.I.&R.H. Georg Friedrich Prince von Preußen and H.S.H. Princess Sophie von Isenburg in Potsdam, Germany and many royal watchers are wondering what royals — reigning and non-reigning — will attend the wedding.

Well, the German magazine, Bunte, is also curious about the guest-list and they have concluded that many non-reigning royals as well as nobles will attend including Prince Alois and Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein, Prince Alexander and Princess Nadja of Schaumburg-Lippe, and the troubled royal, Prince Ernst August of Hanover (minus Princess Caroline of Hanover.)

Unfortunately, we will not know the complete guest-list until the day before or perhaps the day of the wedding.
