At the beginning of 2012 he moved back from New York to Coburg where he is on the board of the family Foundation - the Stiftung der Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha'schen Familie {Source}.He married Kelly Jeanne Rondestvedt on 21 May 2009 (Civil) and 23 May 2009 (religious) {Source}.
Together, they have the following children{Source}:
Although, he holds no official role, he does attend certain royal family events, such as the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden.

Through his greatx2 grandfather, he is a descendant of Queen Victoria. (Allow me to save you some googling: His greatx2 grandfather was Queen Victoria's son Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany via his father and grandfather)
Yes, this means he is in line for the British throne-distantly.
He was also related to Queen Victoria via her mother, Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. He was Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld's greatx3 grandchild (I *think*).
