Royal Profile: Samuel Bernhard Louis van Vollenhoven

Samuel Bernhard Louis van Vollenhoven was born 25 May 2004 as the second child of Prince  Bernhard van Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven & Princess Annette van Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven {Source}. He has one older sister, and a younger brother {Source}:
  1. Miss Isabella Lily Juliana van Vollenhoven (2002)
  2. Master Benjamin Pieter Floris van Vollenhoven(2008)
His godparents are {Source}{Source}:
  • Princess Margriet (paternal grandmother)
  • Prince Pieter-Christiaan of Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven (paternal uncle)
  • Marjolein Sekrève (maternal aunt?)
  • Diederik de Rooy
His parents mostly lead private lives, therefore it is likely safe to assume so does Samuel, and he will continue to do so. His father is a first cousin of the current Dutch King, and with his great-aunt Beatrix's abdication in 2013, his father lost his rights to the throne, however, his grandmother remains in line of succession.
