Council cannot ban "antisocial" Rowan Lascelles, nephew of Lord Harewood

Embed from Getty Images The Westminster Council has "failed in its attempt to ban" Rowan Nash Lascelles from the "borough after years of violence, threats, criminal damage, and racist behavior," reports The Times. Lascelles, 43, is the son of the Hon. James Lascelles, whose late father, the 7th Earl of Harewood was Queen Elizabeth II's first cousin, and his first wife, Fredericka Duhrssen. According to The Times,  the Westminster Council had applied for an order to bar Lascelles from the area due to his behavior as a "persistent offender."   Olwen Davies, the District Judge, denied the council's application stating an "order will not deter his entrenched criminality." Every time the Council tried to place Lascelles in council housing, his "unreasonable behavior" would lead to another eviction. He has been convicted for several "racially aggravated offenses." and has been banned from Sainbury's store in the Strand where he ranted against several members of the staff there screaming "Go back where you come from. I'm going to kick you out of the country. You're not English." But it was Lascelles who would be kicked out of his previous accommodation at the King George's Hotel in Victoria, due to his antisocial behavior.  Lascelles is currently living in a hotel room in Victoria that is paid for by his father. George Bossman, who is the coordinator for Westminster's homeless, told the Times that Lascelles "only viable alternative to homelessness in London," is a farm in France owned by his mother, Fredericka, and her second husband, Paddy Hayter, who are the co-founders of the Footsbarn  Traveling Theatre, in La Chaussée, Maillet, France.  Due to health concerns, Hayter is stepping down as the company's artistic director. The Hayters have a "very, very big farm there and when he works there it calms him down. However, when he does not like something he gets extremely angry and abuses people and we need to put boundaries  in his place to control his behavior." Bossman said.    "There have been frightening, aggressive outbursts and racist behavior and he had been engaging in the illicit use of substances and buying it in Westminster." According to Bossman, Rowan hangs out with drug users, especially those who are using Spice, a "form of synthetic marijuana.   "If this behavior continues in Westminster there could be a fatality," Bossman added.  "We have tried everything in the book to contain his behavior, with mental health and drug alcohol teams attempting to help him." Judge Davies said Rowan is "either unable or unwilling to change and ignores the criminal law.  An order excluding him from Westminster would simply be ignored.  If he does not obey the law he will not obey a Criminal Behavior Order and simply offend in other London boroughs and transfer his misery to Camden or Wandsworth." In 2019,  an arrest warrant was issued for Lascelles after he failed to turn up for trial in the City of London's Magistrate Court.  He had been "found guilty of "racially aggravated assault and aggravated threatening behavior,"   On June 18, 2019, Lascelles was outside the Hippodrome Casino where he was beaten by three homeless men.  Two of the casino's bouncers came to his aid, but instead of saying thank you, Lascelles "spat blood and saliva" at one of the doormen, asking if he were "fucking legal?" Last December, Lascelles was convicted for a "third racial abuse crime" following his statements to Sainsbury's staff after his credit card had been declined. He told the staff members to "go back to where you came from." Lascelles had spent two days in police custody before his first court appearance in November 2020.  He received a sentence to a 12 month Community Order which included Drug Rehabilitation requirements.  He was also given an  Executive Order barring him from entering Sainsbury's in the Strand for 12-months. The judge told him to stay away from drugs, as "they'll mess with your brain. Hopefully, you will stay out of trouble for the next year." The court's Probation officer told the Daily Mail that Lascelles claims that he has ADHD  which was triggered by "physical and violent abuse" by his stepfather, Paddy Hayter, during his childhood. Lascelles also blames "the emotional neglect" by his mother for his ADHD. He also said he suffers from PTSD. In December 2020,  Lascelles told the court that he hoped to join his mother in France "when he sorts his life out.."  He also said he had stopped smoking crack cocaine and heroin." Embed from Getty Images   The Hon. James Lascelles. 68, is the second of three sons of George, the 7th Earl of Harewood (1923-2011), and his first wife, Marion Stein.  His older brother, David, is the 8th Earl of Harewood. The late Lord Harewood was the elder of two sons of HRH Princess Mary, Princess Royal, only daughter of King George V and Queen Mary, and Henry Lascelles, 6th Earl of Harewood.  James married Frederika Duhrssen in 1973 in Wortham, Suffolk.  They had two children, Sophie and Rowan, before divorcing in 1985.  Most of their married life was spent living in a commune.   He married his second wife, Lori "Shadow" Lee, a Native American,  in 1985, four years after the birth of their first child, a daughter, Tanit.  A son, Tewa, was born shortly after the couple's marriage.    James and Lori divorced in 1996.  He has been married since 1999 to his third wife, the Nigerian-born Joy Elias-Rilwan.   James continues to be involved with music and is a member of a quartet, James Lascelles Talking Spirits.   He and his wife live in London. The Earl of Harewood and his family are not members of the Royal Family although the present earl and his two younger brothers and their parents were included in the larger family events including the annual Trooping the Colour balcony appearances.  This ended in 1965 following the death of the Princess Royal.  Both of her sons were living apart from their first wives. The younger son, the Hon. Gerald Lascelles was already the father of a natural son, Martin, born in 1962.  Two years later, Lord Harewood became the father of a son, Mark, by Patricial Tuckwell.  They did not marry until 1967 following his contentious and public divorce from Marion Stein, who later married Liberal politician,  Jeremy Thorpe. Lord Harewood's divorce meant that he became a social pariah.  He was not invited to the funeral of his uncle, the Duke of Windsor, in 1972.   He and Lady Harewood were guests at the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer in July 1981. Victoria - Edward - George - Mary - George - James - Rowan Rowan Lascelles is the Duke of Cambridge's third cousin. http://www.footsbarn.com/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9093353/Homeless-aristocrat-43-65th-line-throne-convicted-race-abuse-crime.html https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7315975/Arrest-aristocrat-Court-warrant-65th-line-throne-run-casino-punch-up.html https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9093353/Homeless-aristocrat-43-65th-line-throne-convicted-race-abuse-crime.html

The Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe weds Iranian pianist

ICYMI: The Prince and Princess of Schaumburg-Lippe  @Netty Leistra The third time might be the charm for Alexander, the Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe. who wed Iranian-born Mahkameh Navibi on Saturday, October 9  at the Stadtkirche in Bückeburg. His first two marriages were dissolved by divorce.  Alexander 62 and Mahkameh, 40 have been in a couple since 2016.   She is a concert pianist and they share a love of music.   They were married in a civil ceremony at Bückeburg on September 12, 2020, but the religious wedding was put on hold until this year due to COVID-19.  @Netty Leistra Prince Alexander's first marriage was in 1993 when he married Princess Marie Louise "Lilly" of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.  They divorced in 2002.  Five years later, he married Munich lawyer Nadja Anna Zsoeks.   This marriage ended in divorce in 2018.  He has one son, Hereditary Prince Heinrich Donatus, 27, by his first marriage and two daughters, Princesses Felipa, 12, and 10-year-old Princess Philomena. Princess Felipa and Princess Philomena carried their new stepmother's train. Alexander and his first wife,  Lilly,  remain close friends.  She had her second husband Lambros Milona, and their daughter Lana were guests at Alexander's second wedding.  Lilly also attended Alexander and Mahkameh's civil wedding, and today, she was the bride's maid of honor.  Lilly described Alexander's new wife as "an absolute person of the heart, that connects us." The guest list included members of German, Luxembourg, and Austrian royalty, including Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia,  Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg,  Archduke Karl of Austria, who was accompanied by Christian Reid,  Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria and her husband, Daniel Terberger, the Hereditary Prince and Princess of Hanover, the Earl and Countess of St. Andrews, Count Charles and Countess Sarah von Faber-Castell, Prince Manual and Princess Anna of Bavaria, Prince Viktor and Princess Jungeun Anes of Isenburg,  The Prince and Princess of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, the Prince and Princess of Leiningen. After the wedding, the bride and groom and their guests returned to Schloss Bückeburg for a reception and a ball. All three of Prince Alexander's weddings took place in the Stadtkirche and all three of his brides wore a Schaumburg-Lippe family tiara, which was also worn by Alexander's mother, Baroness Benita von Tiele-Winckler at her wedding in 1953 to Philipp-Ernst Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe. Alexander, who was born on Christmas Day 1958, became heir to his father following the death of his older brother,  Georg-Wilhelm in 1983. They announced their engagement on January 8, 2020.   The Prince may have been a bit skeptical at first when he contemplated a third marriage.  But he told a reporter from the German magazine, Bunte:  “You only say yes a third time if you are extremely convinced and happy. And that’s me. We’ve been doing everything together since 2016 and we’re very much in love.    Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images   @Netty Leistra My thanks to my dear friend Netty Leistra who allowed me to use three of her photos.  She is the copyright holder.  Unfortunately for royal bloggers such as myself,  the Getty images of this wedding do not include embedding, which means I cannot use them.

His first two marriages were dissolved by divorce.  Alexander 62 and Mahkameh, 40 have been in a couple since 2016.   She is a concert pianist and they share a love of music.   They were married in a civil ceremony at Bückeburg on September 12, 2020, but the religious wedding was put on hold until this year due to COVID-19.  @Netty Leistra Prince Alexander's first marriage was in 1993 when he married Princess Marie Louise "Lilly" of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.  They divorced in 2002.  Five years later, he married Munich lawyer Nadja Anna Zsoeks.   This marriage ended in divorce in 2018.  He has one son, Hereditary Prince Heinrich Donatus, 27, by his first marriage and two daughters, Princesses Felipa, 12, and 10-year-old Princess Philomena. Princess Felipa and Princess Philomena carried their new stepmother's train. Alexander and his first wife,  Lilly,  remain close friends.  She had her second husband Lambros Milona, and their daughter Lana were guests at Alexander's second wedding.  Lilly also attended Alexander and Mahkameh's civil wedding, and today, she was the bride's maid of honor.  Lilly described Alexander's new wife as "an absolute person of the heart, that connects us." The guest list included members of German, Luxembourg, and Austrian royalty, including Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia,  Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg,  Archduke Karl of Austria, who was accompanied by Christian Reid,  Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria and her husband, Daniel Terberger, the Hereditary Prince and Princess of Hanover, the Earl and Countess of St. Andrews, Count Charles and Countess Sarah von Faber-Castell, Prince Manual and Princess Anna of Bavaria, Prince Viktor and Princess Jungeun Anes of Isenburg,  The Prince and Princess of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, the Prince and Princess of Leiningen. After the wedding, the bride and groom and their guests returned to Schloss Bückeburg for a reception and a ball. All three of Prince Alexander's weddings took place in the Stadtkirche and all three of his brides wore a Schaumburg-Lippe family tiara, which was also worn by Alexander's mother, Baroness Benita von Tiele-Winckler at her wedding in 1953 to Philipp-Ernst Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe. Alexander, who was born on Christmas Day 1958, became heir to his father following the death of his older brother,  Georg-Wilhelm in 1983. They announced their engagement on January 8, 2020.   The Prince may have been a bit skeptical at first when he contemplated a third marriage.  But he told a reporter from the German magazine, Bunte:  “You only say yes a third time if you are extremely convinced and happy. And that’s me. We’ve been doing everything together since 2016 and we’re very much in love.    Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images   @Netty Leistra My thanks to my dear friend Netty Leistra who allowed me to use three of her photos.  She is the copyright holder.  Unfortunately for royal bloggers such as myself,  the Getty images of this wedding do not include embedding, which means I cannot use them.

Two ceremonies for Princess Xenia and William B. Leeds Jr.

ICYMI:   The wedding of Princess Xenia of Russia and William B. Leeds Jr.  took place this afternoon in Paris, and, according to the New York Times, it was a "strange mixture of the past and the present." Xenia, a "charming young princess," a descendant of Nicholas I of Russia, now living in exile was united in marriage to the son of the late William B. Leeds, the tinplate magnet, who died in 1908.    Young William was only 5 years old when his father died. William Leeds is the stepson of his new wife's uncle, Prince Christopher of Greece and Denmark, who married Nancy Leeds -- now HRH Princess Anastasia of Greece and Denmark in February 1920 after an engagement that lasted for six years. Princess Xenia is the daughter of the late Grand Duke George Mikhailovitch of Russia who was executed by the Bolsheviks in 1919 and Princess Marie of Greece, the daughter of King George I of the Hellenes and Grand Duchess Olga Konstantinova of Russia. The couple was married in two religious ceremonies.  The first wedding was celebrated at the American Church of the Holy Trinity.  This service started at 2:30 p.m. and did not last long.  At 3 p.m., the couple arrived at the  Russian church, where the ceremony was "held with all the pomp of Orthodox rites. Xenia wore a "white brocade wedding dress and a long train," which was carried by Prince Peter and Princess Eugenie, the two children of Prince and Princess George of Greece.  Her "simple white veil" was held in place by a "wreath of orange blossoms," and she was led up the aisle by the bridegroom.   Leeds chose to wear an "afternoon coat and a white flower in his buttonhole," to an altar in the center of the church as the choir sang a Gregorian chant. William and Xenia "looked curiously frail beneath the great gilded dome covered with huge figures of saints staring down on all sides." the two witnesses,  Prince Christopher of Greece, who is married to William's mother, and Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovitch, stood behind the bride and groom, as other family members and wedding guests stood in a circle around them. The guest list featured the Dowager Queen Olga of the Hellenes, Prince George of Greece, and numerous Russian Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses now living in Paris. The New York Times correspondent noted that "there was something almost pathetic in the sight of these people born to rule, without to rule today, as they stood there attending a ceremony which broke tradition for generations dear to them that a princess of a reigning house can only wed one of the royal blood." After the gold crowns "studded with precious stones" were held over their heads, the couple walked three times around the altar.   When the ceremony was over,  the newlyweds, now Mr. and Mrs. William B. Leeds Jr., got into a car and drove to the Ritz where the reception was held. The honeymoon will be spent in England. If you liked this article, perhaps you can buy me a latte
