Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie of Prussia Welcome Fourth Child

Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie of Prussia have recently welcomed their fourth child. Princess Sophie gave birth to a healthy boy in Bremen, where the family live. Both mother and child are said to be in good health.

They also have twin boys, Carl Friedrich Franz Alexander of Prussia and Louis Ferdinand Christian Albrecht of Prussia born on 20 January 2013 and a daughter Emma Marie Charlotte Sophie of Prussia born on 2 April 2015. The new addition to the family is still unnamed.

Prince Georg Friedrich is the current head of the House of Hohenzollern, which ruled the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia. He is the great-great-grandson of the last German Emperor, Wilhelm II, who was deposed after the First World War and went into exile in the Netherlands. Georg Friedrich is the only son of Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia (1944-1977) and Countess Donata of Castell-Rüdenhausen (1950-2015). Georg Friedrich went to school in Bremen and Oldenburg and also attend Glenalmond College near Perth, Scotland, where he passed his A-levels. He spent two years volunteering for the Germany army and attended Freiberg University of Mining and Technology. He now works for a company which specialises in helping universities bring their innovations to the public market. He divides his time between living in Bremen and at Hohenzollern Castle.

He succeeded his grandfather as Head of the House on 26 September 1994 as his father had died in 1977 after being pinned between two vehicles during a military manoeuvre.

On 25 August 2011, he married Princess Sophie Johanna Maria of Isenburg in Potsdam, which was broadcast live on the TV. Georg Friedrich is a descendant of Queen Victoria through her eldest daughter Victoria, Princess Royal. He was in the line of succession to the British throne until he married Sophie, who was a Roman Catholic. He was restored to his succession rights by the Succession to the Crown Act 2013.
