This blog does attempt to give the news concerning the Royals as it happens and the news is often not always good news. We love to report on happy events like weddings and glamorous occasions like balls and banquets. However thing do go wrong and this week we have to report the sad news of the separation of an engaged couple. Where we were anticipating another glitzy wedding to perhaps take place before the end of 2012. It is with disappointment that we share the news of the end of the engagement between Lady Mairi D'Bacquemme and the Viscount Hayz.
The news was already rumoured for over two weeks but we could not report on it until it was officially announced. We received and email at our news office here in the Principality of Swann from the Viscount stating the facts that the relationship had come to a final end. He cites the irreconcilable difference of Lady Mairi not accepting his business dealings with ARC International and its owner the Lady Archwhite. We also have it from independent sources that the young Viscount has been working successfully with ARC Investments and was due to expand his contract due to the natural gas contracts being established with the Syldavian Province of Serbieski. The supertitious might believe that this break-up speaks of the dubious intentions of ARC Investments in Serbieski and should be counted as a bad omen. There has yet to be a statement from Lady Mairi but this might not come due to her family's avoidance of media attention and this not being a divorce is 100% a private affair.
We are sad to report this news but wish both parties all the best for the future.
