1)  I had not known that Princess Michael was related to the Hesse family.
2)  A while ago Morey and Frodo went to a wedding in Germany it may have been the Philip von Hesse one.  I presume they're related.

Thanks, Miss Waynfleet.  Thumb up

The little dog agrees with you.  The Danish family did look like fun!!
In the 2nd. photo, with the greatest number of people, I missed the identity of one gentleman.
The fellow standing at the back - fourth from the left, chubby, with the bowler hat.  
Is he King Edward VII?

They do look alike.  They are quite closely related.
Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence is the son of Britain's Queen Alexandra from Denmark.
Alexandra is the first cousin of Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse-Kassel.

I always think that Lord Frederick and his father, Prince Michael of Kent, look like Albert Victor too.
They both have a connection to the Hesse-Kassel line and Christian IX of Denmark.
Nicholas II of Russia looks similar with shared bloodlines as well.  
Thanks Cloaked and Pede for the info and pictures. I knew there was a Hesse connection through Princess Louise of Hesse-Kasse. The resemblance between the two is remarkable. I had just been reading about Prince Albert Victor being one of the potential suspects in the Jack the Ripper murders, so when I saw the picture of Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse Pede posted, I was quite surprised.

 Miss Waynfleet, I just read through the thread again and realized that's it's you who provides the pics of the Wales & Hesse cousins. Star

Made me wonder, but according to information there is also still the Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld  line besides Hesse-Kassel surviving. Based on that I guess they will maintain the name House of Hesse.

Hesse-Kassel and Hesse-Darmstadt merged as they were more closely related, and now it's just Hesse.  The other multi-barreled Hesse houses are more distant.

I was just looking at the black and white photos on this page, and I noticed the one of "George Donatus and Cecilie" on their wedding day is actually Berchtold and Theodora of Baden (Cecilie's oldest sister).  Mislabeled.

In List of rulers of Hesse - Wikipedia, why is Ernest Louis II listed as Ernest Louis II? Should he not be Ernest Louis I?

Because he was indeed the second of this name ... the first was like 200 years earlier:

Landgrave Ernest Louis I certainly left a lot of financial debt.

During the Napoleonic reorganization of the Empire in 1803, the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel was elevated to an Electorate. Landgrave William IX became an Imperial Elector.
