Trier, Germany, 19 September 2017

Danica Marinković, the fiancée of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, has for many years been involved in promoting Serbia through her art as well as through the exhibiting activities of her father, Cile Marinkovic. This time, Danica participated in coordinating the participation of her father, artist Cile Marinkovic, at an art exhibition and an auction marking the 25th anniversary of the Academy of European Law (ERA).

The prominent French art critic and curator of this exhibition, Christian Norbergen, made a selection of 31 contemporary artists and their works from 31 European countries. With Cile Marinkovic, who represents Serbia at the exhibition, it is important to mention that the Republic of Croatia is represented by the painter Dimitrije Popovic, while Montenegro is represented by the sculptor Zlatko Glamocak and the Republic of Slovenia by the painter Iztok Kostarec, and many others.

In order to mark this event, a series of activities will be organized, including a major congress on the state of European integration. All works of art will be sold or auctioned during the 25th anniversary of the ERA premises as well as online. All art lovers and potential buyers will have the opportunity to compete for artists' works, get to know artists from all over Europe and know about their art.

The Academy of European Law (ERA) is a non-profit public foundation established in 1992 and based in Trier, Germany. Its patrons include most European Union  Member States. ERA contributes to strengthening the European integration process and provides a European forum for legal policy debate. The Academy offers opportunities for a sustainable professional development through networking, face-to-face training and distance learning in European law to judges, prosecutors, lawyers in private practice, business and public administration.

During her art career, Miss Danica Marinkovic has been making a lot of efforts in order to promote her country abroad as well as to make new contacts and opportunities for domestic artists, especially young ones. Miss Marinkovic will marry HRH Prince Philip on October 7 at the Cathedral Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Belgrade, Serbia.

Two sisters - Grand Duchesses Maria and Kira of Russia

In Amorbach on Saturday (September 16),  Grand Duchess Maria's great-grandson, Hereditary Prince Ferdinand of Leiningen, married Grand Duchess Kira's granddaughter,  Princess Viktoria Luise of Prussia.

Two sisters.  Great-granddaughters of Queen Victoria.   Daughters of a British princess.   Maria was the wife of Karl, the 6th Prince of Leiningen.  Kira married Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia, who became the de jure German emperor, after the death of his father, Crown Prince Wilhelm.   Louis Ferdinand was very much concerned with bloodlines, and would certainly have approved of this marriage.
