Royal Profile: Samuel 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}:
  1. Princess Margriet (paternal grandmother)
  2. Prince Pieter-Christiaan of Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven (paternal uncle)
  3. Marjolein Sekrève (maternal aunt?)
  4. 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.
