Today, after several months of diligent research, countless interviews and telephone and face time calls, I have finally finished writing the I did it my way – TheMemoirs of HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha.
For the sake of clarity, Prince Andreas is one of my dearest and closest friends. Using years of interviews and countless hours of talks, plus hundreds of pages of notes and private archives, we pieced together a compelling story of a young boy who was taken out of Europe and raised un the United States. Later, when duty beckoned, the young boy now turned into a young man returned home to Germany to take over the legacy that destiny had placed on his strong shoulders.
He is responsible for the rehabilitation of the Coburgs, as well as for setting the dynasty's future on a sound financial course.
The memoirs are a sincere reminiscence of a life dedicated to fulfilling duty and expectations!
I have handed the book over to a few knowledgeable royal watchers and they have all loved it!
Tonight I will start laying text with photos so we can have the book in the hands of our printers by mid-September.
I did it my way – TheMemoirs of HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha will be officially presented at this year's ROYAL GATHERINGS in The Hague Conference, a collaboration between Eurohistory and Hoogstraten English Bookstore!
In a stunningly shocking decision, King Michael announced that his grandson Prince Nicholas would no longer be "prince" or bear the style of "Royal Highness." Logically, the popular young man has also been removed from the line of succession!
To coincide with EUROHISTORY's publication of ROYAL EXILES IN CANNES: The Bourbons of the Two Sicilies of the Villa Marie-Thérèse, we have also created a new facebook group, to which everyone is invited, on the Capetian Dynasty.
This new group will be dedicated to all the various branches of the Bourbon family, from Orléans to Luxembourg and including: France, Spain, Brazil, Parma, Two Sicilies, Bourbon-Busset and Luxembourg.
After a short delay caused by our newest book (ROYAL EXILES IN CANNES – The Bourbons of the Two Sicilies of the Villa Marie-Thérèse) requiring our full attention, we managed to dispatch Issue CV (Volume 18.3 – June 2015) to print!
We hope our printers will have it back in our hands in their usual five weeks turn-around period!
Inside, readers will find articles on:

New Books: Royal Exiles in Cannes & I did it my way ... (In preparation)
We are extremely busy here at EUROHISTORY. At present we are putting the finishing touches on the 105th Issue of our magazine (Volume 18.3 – With articles by Greg King and Janet Ashton, Marlene Eilers Koenig, Coryne Hall, Ilana D. Miller, etc).
We are also working on three books at the same time, two of them in the layout stage at present: Royal Exiles in Cannes – The Bourbon-Two Sicilies of the Villa Marie Thérèse (by David McIntosh and Arturo E. Beéche) and The Coronation of Tsar Nicholas II (by Greg King and Janet Ashton).
The third book is titled, I did it my way ... The Memoirs of Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha. Eurohistory plans to publish a book per month this fall, beginning in September!
An ambitious schedule no doubt, but one that we are quite confident that we can meet!
This weekend Pierre Casiraghi, youngest son of Princess Caroline of Monaco, and thus nephew of Prince Albert II, will wed his longtime girlfriend Beatrice Borromeo, a descendant of one of Italy's most ancient lineages.
