: Marianne's thread about the Royal Wedding
: in Bhutan reminded me of this Royal Wedding
: in 1963 between American Hope Cooke and the
: Crown Prince of Sikkim. Enclosed in the link
: are photos of their fairy tale wedding and
: further photos of their married life and
: children. Unfortunately, the fairy tale
: didn't last. The Crown Prince, became the
: King, but was deposed and Sikkim became a
: territory of India. The Royal Couple
: divorced and Hope Cooke remarried in 1983. I
: hope the link works.
