The much anticipated Royal Christmas Ball hosted by the government and people of Scotney finally took place on Christmas Eve yesterday evening. Since the imperial visit of Empress Crystobel in 2012 to the nation of Scotney the friendship between this former monarchy and their exiled Empress grew steadily.
After the shock of her death it was an almost natural response for Scotney to host this year's Christmas Ball as a sign of their commitment to the friendship. The democratic Republic of Britania was included officially in this gesture as they share the Imperial History of Scotney in what was known as the United Empire of Scot-Britania.
The event was fully televised for the enjoyment of the international press and Royal fans worldwide. Our blog documents this glittering event in pictures and commentary only.

Prince Valmont d'Pont Du Lac arrives at the ball with his wife, the Duchess of Roswind. She is considered one of the highest ranking Nobles from the former Empire.
The dazzling Youssopoffs did not fail to focus everybody's attention on their super-stylish arrival. Sporting the famous Youssopoff comet-tiara, Princess Kirsten might as well in equal fashion have exploded into the ballroom.
The theme of welcoming Royalty and Nobility back onto Scotney soil was accentuated by inviting relevant representatives from foreign countries. The first to arrive representing the Newly Established Syldavian Royal Electorate was the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Serbieski.

Representing the fifth Syldavian Electorate, Princess Victoria Von Thurn und Taxis opted for a "White Christmas" paired with rubies.
Another unprecedented first was a shock to reporters. An invitation to the ball was sent to the Kingdom of Ophiri but nobody was informed of the fact that the Ophiri Government had officially disbanded the tradition that their Queen may not leave her native soil. Queen Ukulungile arrived to an explosion of camera flashes and royal gasps in the ballroom. In this, her first official appearance on foreign soil, was accompanied to the ball by her brother, Prince Shaka and his wife.
