I found in a search of Descendants of King George V through Mary Princess Royal and the Lascelles family line of Victoria that The Honourable James Lascelles son of The Earl of Harewood has now married a fairly famouse person you can punch up on net related to Hollywood and Movies etc her name is Joy Elias-Rilwan a very black African Heritage lady. I don't know if they have had kids yet but I guess she is James Lascelles 3rd wife.
In mid 1990s I new that James Lascelles had married twice one Frederica Durrhson in the 60s leading a "Hippie" life style and I think had some issue.
I talked on phone to James Lascelles 2nd wife Shadow Lascelles who was in New Mexico I guess in mid 90s and she said she was makeing Native American Music and I talked briefly to James American Daughter I forget Tanit or Tewa they are American descendants of Queen Victoria....totaly American Accented also. I guess his kids Tanit and Tewa area acutaly NAMED after some places in New Mexico.
But anyway James Lascelles Great Great Great Grandson of Queen Victoria is Married to Joy Elias-Rilwan now whoes name you could just type in Search engine and her name pops up all over a Great Great Great Granddaughter In Law of Victoria and Albert.
I also got couple years ago to visit Isle of Wight Queen Victorias Osborn House! The room she died in very NEAT and coincidentaly it was on June 25th of 2002 I think the anniversary that Victoria made Albert Prince Consort
I walked couple miles from Osborn House to St. Mildreds Church nearby the Church Victoria and Albert and their family attended Church at and the Battenberg roots are there. I visited Grave inside the Church of Princess Beatrice YOUNGEST child of Victoria and Albert and had my Photo there at the spot called The Battenberg Chapel with the nice effigies of Princess Beatrice and her husband Henry of Battenberg on it.
Uniquely out in The Church Yard is the Grave of Henry of Battenbergs Brother and his wife Princess Victoria of Hesse Neice of Princess Beatrice sister to Tzarina Alexandra of Russia and mother of both Queen Louise of Sweden and of Earl Mountbatten of Burma and thus Grandmother of Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh!!
IT WAS GREAT I was ALL Alone at this small Church called St. Mildreds at Whippingham on Isle of Wight down long winding road couple miles from Osborn House. There was a small gift shop and Attendant in the Church and I got to Photo the small Chairs in the area where Victoria and Albert and their family attended Church. Then the attendant took my photo with the Battenberg Chapel and the resting Place high up of The Tombs of Princess Beatrice and Henry of Battenberg. Then after church closed I went alone in Church Yard and set Camera on automatic and had my photo sitting at foot of Resting Place of Princess Victoria of Hesse and her husband Louise of Battenberg grandparents of Prince Philip very peacefull all alone with lovely sunny wind and in background the Ocean.
At Osborn House I had my photo at place Kaiser Whilhelm did and is where he stood for a Portrait that hangs in the Osborn House.
That is one of those GENOALOGICAL PUZZLES when you think of the two graves at the Church I visited
Princess Beatrice Youngest of Victoria and Albert married Henry of Battenberg and her neice Princess Victoria of Hesse married her husbands brother Louis of Battenberg so Beatrice and her neice were SISTERS IN LAW!
Now further fun confusion. This means Princess Beatrices NEICE was AUNT to her own kids ahahahahahha! By Marriage ahahahaha! And Princess Beatrices Neice Victoria of Hesse and Victoria of Hesse's CHILDREN were ALL FIRST COUSINS of Princess Beatrices Children! RIGHT!
Princess Beatrice had been Governor of Isle of Wight also and I visited The Castle they lived in and Beatrice was the last surviving child of Victoria and Albert.
Of course Beatrice is Great Granny of King Juan Carlos of Spain who I photoed this past June and King Juan Carlos wife Queen Sophia through the greek line descends from Empress Victoria of Germany and Kaiser Fredrick of Germany through Kaiser Whilhelm IIs sister.
So very interesting The King of Spain is descended from Victoria's YOUNGEST BEATRICE and his Queen Sophia descends from Victoria's ELDEST VICKY Empress of Germany.
One more boast this past June on June 17 in point of fact I got to be in Grounds of Windsor Catle for The Knights of The Garter Ceremoney and I think King Harald of Norway recieved the Garter but all The Crowned Reigning descendants of Victoria and Albert were there and I photoed Queen Margreth II of Denmark, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain, and The British Royals of course including The Queen and Prince Philip and Edward and Sophie and Charles and Anne and some Prime Ministers to like Lady Thatcher and Edward Heath all in there Robes of The Garter. I guess The King and Queen of Belgium were there but The King of Belgium I think realy descends from Queen Victoria's Uncle King Leopold of Belgium.
Very interesting. Very interesting things. I know I have stumbeld off topic of just descendants of Victoria and Albert but also when ever I visit Windsor Castle and St. Georges Chapel I see the Resting Places with effigies of King George V and Queen Mary in one corner and way opossite is is resting place of George V's parents King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra and I found that both Queen Alexandra and Queen Mary Mother and Daughter IN Law to each other are both second Cousings shareing a German LandGrave as Great Grandfather in one Genealogy Chart I saw in Book by James Pope-Hennesy called QUEEN MARY.
Whew long confusing post!
