Are there any news about this son from the first marriage?

The break-up was weird. I remember they first kind of announced they were having another baby and everyone expected her to be pregnant, then she said she'd go to London for a while and then suddenly she broke up.

One of the girls I went to college with went to school with Lilly and said she was not surprised at all, she was that impulsive all along.

Last I heard Donatus went to school in Italy. Every once in a while he accompanies his father to "official" events.

Lilly's and Alexander's break up was kind of messy, I think he tried to hold onto her as longs as he could. She later said that she couldn't cope with her duties and that she felt like living in a prison. Well, she was only 22 when they married but you usally know what you are getting into when you marry someone like him. I didn't know the London part, only remember that she moved to Munich when they finally broke up.

Nikolai to Schaumburg-Lippe has died unexpectedly on December 4, aged only 27





The German royal house is saddened.

They were the glamor couple of the 80s: she, the beautiful Seidensticker-daughter and heiress of the world-famous Bielefeld shirt maker, he, the smart prince from the princely house to Schaumburg-Lippe.

In 1986 York Schaumburg-Lippe (56) and Susanne Seidensticker were married, three years later their son Prinz Nicolai was born.

But their great happiness didn't last as Susanne had been infected by a blood transfusion with HIV virus and died in 1992 at the age of 31.

What was hardly known in the public: she had transferred the virus to her son. Now Nicolai also lost the battle against the diabolic disease.

The German aristocracy is shattered, the princely house at Schaumburg-Lippe is mourning.

Nicolai was only 27 years old. On December 14th, friends and family gathered in the New Chapel at the Sennefriedhof in Bielefeld to honour the Prince: - "The mood was of course saddened, but we also celebrated Nicolai's life. He knew he was going to die, so he could say good-bye to all of his loved ones and plan his mourning feast himself".

Thus, a message was read out, in which Nicolai thanked all the friends who gave him life during his severe illness.

How sad. They are just a very unlucky familiy - Alexander Schaumburg-Lippe was not supposed to be the heir, but his older brother died in an accident.

Oh, that is just horrible.  So very sad.  My heart breaks for his father, who has lost both a wife and a son at such young ages.

Lilly and Alexander seem to have a GREAT relationship despite their divorce - here: Alexander Fuerst zu Schaumburg-Lippe and his ex wife Lilly zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg during the wedding of Prince Maximilian zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Franziska Balzer on August 6, 2016 in Bad Laasphe, Germany.
