Wedding No 35
.
On 20 April 1896 Princess Alexandra of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, third daughter of Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia married Ernst II, Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg in Coburg, Germany. .
Alexandra and Ernst were second cousins; their grandmothers, Queen Victoria and Princess Feodora of Leiningen, were half-sisters. Alexandra was also a granddaughter of Tsar Alexander II of Russia.
.
During Alexandra's formative years, it was her mother who was the domineering presence in her life. The duchess believed in marrying her daughters young, before they began to think for themselves. At the end of 1895, she arranged 17 years old Alexandra's engagement to Ernst II, Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. .
Alexandra's grandmother, Queen Victoria, complained that she was too young. Alexandra's father objected to the status of his future son-in-law. It was not considered a brilliant match, but they were also related. .
Together, they had five children. Alexandra and Ernst lived for the rest of their life in Germany.

In the years preceding World War II, Ernst and Alexandra was an early supporter of the Nazi Party, which they joined in together with several of their children. One of her sons, Gottfried married Princess Margarita of Greece (sister of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh)

Wedding No 33
.
On 24 May 1888, Princess Irene, daughter of Princess Alice of United Kingdom and Grand Duke Hesse married Prince Heinrich of Prussia son of Frederick III, German Emperor and Victoria, Princess Royal at the chapel of the Charlottenberg Palace in Berlin.
.
As their mothers were sisters, Irene and Heinrich were first cousins. Their marriage displeased Queen Victoria because she had not been told about the courtship until they had already decided to marry.
.
The wedding was a sombre affair, as Prince Heinrich’s father was dying of throat cancer, and less than a month after the ceremony, when he died, Irene's cousin and brother-in-law ascended the throne as Kaiser Wilhelm II.
.

Heinrich's mother, Empress Victoria, was fond of Irene. However, Empress Victoria who was fascinated by politics and current events, also couldn't understand why Heinrich and Irene never read a newspaper.
.
However, the couple were happily married and they were known as "The Very Amiables" by their relatives because of their pleasant natures. .
.

The marriage produced three sons. Prince Waldemar, Prince Sigismund and Prince Heinrich. Irene was devastated to learn that two of her sons had inherited her family’s disease, hemophilia. .
