It was confirmed that GF of Hohenzollern will auction a gemstone "The Beay Sancy" due to finacial reasons. The stone is worth 1,5 €.

A cute run of shots.  Cute
It appears that that Friedrich and Sophie are researching, documenting and finally following written instruction about what to do with their hats.
... And in the end the hats can only be worn for a few seconds after all.
It reminds me of a 'Two Ronnie's' skit.

The hats did look good against the outside of the building; the green one matched the aging copper dome.

   Star (when the time allows)  These two look so much like brother and sister.  It won't be hard to figure out who the baby resembles.

They're a cute couple.  I know that they both had regular jobs before their wedding.  Do they still have their jobs?  Who sends them on these visits?  Do they represent a foundation or something?

They still have their jobs, Sophie also works now for the Prinzessin-Kira foundation.
The widow Empress Frederick lived in the castle of Bad Homburg till the finalisation of Castle Friedrichshof in Kronberg 1894. King Edward VII., her brother was often a guest there (who also introduced the Homburger hat), in general 32 times for fasting cures. After his mother moved to Kronberg, Wilhelm II. used the castle in Bad Homburg as summer palace.
I assume GF as descendant of the most famous guest (the city benefited from this of course), he was invited to the celebration.  Smiley

yes, you are right, in general the word "Bad" means "bath"...but it is also used in the sense of a health spa, where therapists apply hydrotherapies amongst other therapeutical applications (sauna, massages, etx).

"Marienbad" for example is one of the most famous health spas in the Czech Republic (Mariánské Lázně ) Mariánské = of Maria and Lázně = health spa.
Mariánské Lázně was visited by many famous and important guests, for instance the British king Edward VII., Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Fryderyk Chopin, Mark Twain, Nikolaj W. Gogol, Thomas Alva Edison, Franz Kafka, Jan Neruda, Antonín Dvořák, Tomáš G. Masaryk, and many others, who where mesmerized by it's natural surroundings and the healing effects of the natural springs there.

The natural springs of Baden-Baden were already known to the Romans. And it is said that the bath-conscious Roman emperor, Caracalla, once came here to ease his arthritic aches. Roman fragments and its ancient sculptures are still to be seen, and in 1847, the well preserved remains of Roman vapour baths were discovered just below the New Castle.

It's all to do with natural springs, baths, saunas, hydrotherapy, and homeopathy - also Sebastian Kneipp was a big advocator for hydrotherapy.

Perhaps not the most exciting (or sexy Blush ) royal couple in Europe, but one knows the happiness when one sees it I'm sure!  Hug
