Royal Profile: Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Capua

Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Capua was born 26 June 1993 as the first child of Prince Pedro of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Noto & Sofia Landaluce y Melgarejo {Source}. He has the following siblings{Source}:
  1. Prince Juan of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (2003)
  2. Prince Pablo of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (2004)
  3. Prince Pedro of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (2007)
  4. Princess Sofia of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (2008)

As his royal line is defunct, we don't know much about him. One can likely assume he leads a fairly normal lifestyle.

Royal Profile: Princess Marie-Astrid of Liechtenstein

Princess Marie-Astrid Nora Margarita Veronica of Liechtenstein was born 26 June 1987 as the third child and second daughter of Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein, Princess of Luxembourg and Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein {Source}. She has the following siblings{Source}:
  1. Prince Leopold Emmanuel Jean Marie of Liechtenstein (1984-1984, only lived a few hours)
  2. Princess Maria-Anunciata Astrid Joséphine Veronica of Liechtenstein (1985)
  3. Prince Josef-Emanuel Leopold Marie of Liechtenstein (1989)
Until 2010, her father served as an Ambassador from Liechtenstein for Belgium. This worked out well for her mother's sake-her uncle is the present King of Belgium. Therefore, it's almost safe to say that she grew up around the children of her mother's cousin Princess Astrid, Prince Amedeo, Princess Maria Laura, Prince Joachim & Princess Maria Luisa.
She likely speaks German, French, Dutch and English.

She shares a birthday with:

  • George Windsor, The Earl of St. Andrews (1962)

  • Prince Pablo of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (2004)
