Wonderful Weekends (State Portraits of the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Reichenthal)

In celebration of the Grand Duke of Reichethal's Investiture into the the Order of the Diamond Star in 2014, the Royal Family of Reichenthal released a set of official portraits. They have gone unmentioned on the blog until now and we thought to publish them in our standard Wonderful Weekend slot albeit a bit late. 

The Grand Duke's obvious intent in these photos was to commemorate the Order of the Diamond Star and is clearly seen wearing the red sash and star badge insignia of the order. He pairs it with the badge of the Order of the Syldav Cross, seen directly below the badge of the Diamond Star. 

The Grand Duchess of Reichenthal joined her husband for these official photos and wore an entirely new tiara, said to have been bought for her by her husband as a token of gratitude for her support over the years which led to him receiving his knighthood.
