We made a Visit to the street where dhe Office of the Ducal Administration is located, next to it is the House where Prince Andreas and his Family live. Short after we arrived there a Car drove by and inside was the bridal Couple who oaid a short Visit to the House but left soon. Only a few minutes later Prince Andreas came out of the Ducal Administration building and drove away. And when we where to go again another Car came with and inside was Prince Alexander, the grooms brother who just arrived from Grein. We later did some sightseeing as we did on the next day. There we accidentally saw again the bridal Couple. The came along the street where we stood and went into an Restaurant. Later that day we went to Callenberg and visited the Castle there and the burial ground of the Ducal Family and then remained there to watch the Guests arriving for the german-american Evening who took place in a tent below Callenberg Castle. On the Wedding Day we went very early to the Church to have a good spot.
