He shares a birthday with James Patrick Ambler, who is his maternal cousin and one year younger than him.He also shares a birthday with his other paternal cousin, Princess Madeleine of Sweden, who is 16 years his junior.He also shares a birthday with Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, who is 45 years his senior..

As a German prince with Swedish blood, he probably speaks German and Swedish. As titles are not recognized, his style in Germany is: Hubertus Gustav Adolf Veit Georg Meinrad Maria Alexander Prinz von Hohenzollern.
He was likely named:
  • Hubertus: a nod to his uncle, who's fourth name is Hubertus.
  • Gustav: for his maternal grandfather, Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten
  • Adolf: for his maternal grandfather, Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten
  • Veit: means South
  • Georg: for his paternal great x4 grandfather, George, King of Saxony
  • Meinrad: German for Strong, also one of his father's names
  • Maria: seems to be tradition among the Hohenzollerns, also one of his father's names
  • Alexander: no idea, possibly the same as Prince Alexander of Sweden.

He has no official role in Sweden or Germany, however he does attend royal events such as weddings and funerals.
