German royals marry with pomp

Prince Georg Friedrich Ferdinand of Prussia marries Princess Sophie of Isenburg

PRINCE Georg Friedrich Ferdinand of Prussia, great-grandson of Kaiser Wilhelm II, has married Princess Sophie of Isenburg, an event that has rekindled German interest in the nation's long-defunct royals.

The couple were married in a church in Potsdam, outside Berlin, the former seat of the prince's family that ruled much of Germany until the monarchy was abolished in 1918.

After the ceremony, the couple travelled by horse-drawn carriage to Sanssouci Palace for a dinner and ball.

The event was broadcast live on local TV, although the couple are largely unknown. Both work as consultants in Berlin.

Germans view their own aristocrats sceptically, although many ardently follow the royal houses of their European neighbours.
