Aristocratic Decadence

Princess Yvonne and Prince Alexander, 1955

I can’t find that much info on these two. One description of this photo names Alexander as a Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn, a placename that could only come out of a Germany. I would love to see pictures of them as adults, but alas, google is being fairly disobliging right now.

Doesn’t it just scream aristocratic decadence? I wonder what the photographer was thinking of these two.

    Hi. I really like your blog. I find it very interesting and informative. I don’t know if you have come across this or not but I saw this very picture on another blog last year. The author spoke about the children and their family as well. Here is the link

    Thanks for all your work. keep it up!

    There is also a Wikipedia-Article with a picture of Alexander as an adult:,_Prince_zu_Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn
    Your blog is great, by the way. I found it today and I love it.

    Great photo! Apparently Prince Alexander was born in 1943. So he would have been 12 years old in this photo
