Twins Expected In The Royal House Of Hannover!
This week, amidst some rather bleak news, there was an happy announcement from the Royal House of Hannover. Prince Christian and Princess Alessandra of Hannover are expecting twins in Summer 2020. The children will be the first offspring for the couple.
On 24 November 2017, Prince Christian of Hannover and Alessandra de Osma were married in a civil ceremony at London. On 16 March 2018, the pair celebrated their religious union at Lima, Peru. Prince Christian of Hannover (b.1987) is the second son of Prince Ernst August of Hannover (b.1954) and Chantal Hochuli (b.1955). Alessandra de Osma (b.1988) is the daughter of Felipe de Osma (b.1956) and Elizabeth Foy.
The twins will be the third and fourth grandchildren of Prince Ernst August of Hannover and Chantal Hochuli. They will join their first cousins, the children of their uncle Prince Ernst August ("Junior) and his wife Princess Ekaterina: Princess Elisabeth (b.2018) and Prince Welf August (b.2019). At the time of Ernst August Junior and Ekaterina's marriage, dynastic approval was withheld from recognising the union by Prince Ernst August Senior.
