Royal Profile: Carlos Hugo Klynstra de Bourbon-de Parme

Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren Klynstra de Bourbon-de Parme was born 20 January 1997 as the son of Brigitte Klynstra & Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Parma, The Duke of Parma{Source}. Through his father's married to Princess Annemarie of Bourbon-Parma, he has three younger siblings:

  • Princess Luisa Irene Constance Anna Maria of Bourbon-Parma (2012)
  • Princess Cecilia Maria Johanna Beatrix of Bourbon-Parma (2013)
  • Carlos Enrique Leonard, Hereditary Prince of Parma (2016)

In December 2015, the then 18 year old Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren Klynstra started the legal procedure to attempt to change his surname to that of his biological father, by Royal decree. If Carlos Hugo were to succeed in this procedure he would then be legitimised and would henceforth be known as His Royal Highness Prince Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren de Bourbon de Parme{Source}. On the 9th of March 2016 the Minister of Security and Justice declared his request validand therefore Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren Klynstra's last name will be changed by Royal decree into "De Bourbon de Parme", and he will be "Prince de Bourbon de Parme" {Source}. The exact date of this Royal Decree is not yet released, but is expected to be released in the usual timespan of 6 months, however, as of January 2017, such decree has yet to be issued.
