I will remain always dedicated to my research work on royal topics, which often influenced my life paths, with ups and downs along the way. The photograph above is very evocative for me in that regard; it depicts a private chapel from the Pelesh castle, a recollection place much loved by Queen Elisabeta (Carmen Sylva), where she prayed for her lost child, Princess Maria (Itty), who died in 1874. This holly place was specially dedicated to the lost princess. DM

Exquisite royal stationery mark from Pelesh Castle (Sinaia, Romania), 1900.
I endeavour in the “Weekly Pictures” post series to bring to light worthy of note, often less known images from the royal past and present and thus further enhance the understanding of royal history and what it represents for us.
