Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie kick off German tour, drives through in Berlin

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie pose before Brandenburg gate.

It seems Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are having a great time driving around Berlin and promoting everything "Great" about Britain. The two Princesses are now in the German capital to embark on a year-long campaign in their capacity as Britain's trade ambassadors, a position recently held by their father, Prince Andrew.




"They flew to the German capital to support the Great Campaign, a global initiative to attract visitors, business and students to these shores," reports Telegraph online.

Their Berlin trip was highlighted by a "mini" drive-through in Berlin. After posing in front of the Brandenburg gate, 22-year-old Princess Eugenie of York drove the Union Jack emblazoned-car heading to the British Embassy nearby.

''The Great Campaign is designed to showcase the very best that we have to offer," 24-year old Princess Beatrice of York said on a short speech.

''2012 is already a year of amazing memories - but as 2013 begins we've got so much we'd love for people from around the world to come and enjoy - beautiful countryside; lively cities; and some of the world's most incredible museums and hundreds of unique historic places," she continues.

''The Great Campaign also has a serious business side - Britain has trend setting fashion, groundbreaking scientists, and innovative technology companies.

''It is also a welcoming home for investors. We're here to encourage more German businesses to join the thousands that are developing successful partnerships in Britain.''

The Truth about “Princess Qajar,” the Royal Lady with the Mustache

A Persian princess viral news websites baptized as Princess Qajar has lately become a stuff of legends. She was presented as a royal lady with a facial hair that made her so attracted that 13 men claimed their own lives because she couldn’t love them. The truth is, there was no “Princess Qajar,” only the Qajar dynasty  that ruled over Persia for more than a century.

The only fact about this historical meme is that at that time, it was fashionable for Persian women to wear mustache. “Many Persian-language sources, as well as photographs, from the nineteenth century confirm that Qajar women sported a thin mustache, or more accurately a soft down, as a sign of beauty,” explained Dr. Afsaneh Najmabadi.
The memes and fake stories circulating online refer not to a single princess, but actually to two female dynasts: Princess Fatemah Khanum"'Esmat al-Dowleh" and her half-sister, Princess Zahra Khanom Tadj es-Saltaneh. Their father, Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, ruled Persia from 1…

Why Prince Harry is a Commoner?

Prince Harry is a commoner according to common law, explains royal expert Marlene Eilers Koenig in her blog.
“In the United Kingdom, the law is based on English COMMON law -- from where we get the word Commoner,” she explained. That puts Prince Harry under the rule of the normal law.
Only the sovereign (e.g. The Queen) and the peers of the realm are not commoners, she explained. The peerage of the United Kingdom is composed of, in order of precedence, Dukes, Marquesses, Earls, Viscounts, and Barons.
“That leaves everyone else, including princes and princesses, who have not been created peers of the realm,” Eilers continued to explain. Thus, even if Harry is a Prince of the United Kingdom, he is, by law, a commoner. In precedence, as the queen’s grandson, he ranks higher than the Duke of Norfolk, who is the premier duke in the peerage of England, but according to the law, the Duke of Norfolk is not a commoner, while Harry is is.
However, once he gets married, Her Majesty is highly …

Queen Mary and the Delhi Durbar Tiara

In 1911, King George V and Queen Mary were to be proclaimed Emperor and Empress of India. That was the first and only time that a British sovereign attended the durbar, which was hailed as the largest gathering of princes, noblemen and landed gentry in India to pay homage to their sovereigns. The King and Queen should never be outdone by the petty rulers. They were sure these local princes would come garbed with all the gold and diamonds from their treasure chest. It was decided that they should showcase the crown jewels with them. But British law prohibits anyone from taking these treasures outside Great Britain. A new set of coronation regalia  had to be made! Thus, the India Office commissioned Garrard and Co. to make the Imperial Crown of India for King George V. It has eight arches, with 6170 exquisitely cut diamonds, and covered with sapphires, emeralds and rubies, with a velvet and miniver cap all weighing 34.05 ounces (965 g).

However, Queen Mary was without the empress' …
