Carl Alexander has some explaining to do
Pity poor Corinna Prinzessin von Hohenzollern, the new wife of 41-year-old Prince Carl Alexander, a scion of the Princely House of Hohenzollern.
The young African woman who recently married Carl Alexander in Las Vegas has been bragging to the German newspaper, Bild, that she and her husband will be living at Schloss Sigmaringen.
Carl Alexander told Bild that he will have the right to live in the castle when his wife becomes pregnant. She's not pregnant ... not yet, but Carl Alexander said that "we do indeed work hard every day for this."
Corinna may not know this yet, but her fairy tale has a rude awakening. Prince Carl Alexander does not have the right to live in the castle, which belongs to the head of the house and his family. Karl Friedrich, the Prince of Hohenzollern, has made it clear that he considers "the development of Prince Carl Alexander with great concern."
The Prince of Hohenollern also stated that his second cousin does not have the right to live at the schloss.
Schloss Sigmaringen has 462 rooms and is open to the public. Prince Karl Friedrich and his family live in one area of the castle. Other family members live in Sigmaringen, as the family owns several other properties. Carl Alexander is a member of a junior branch with no real ties to Sigmaringen. He is also not one of the brightest members of the family.
Corinna has been sending out postcards with a photo of Schloss Sigmaringen, with the words "Welcome to my residence," to friends and family.
Carl Alexander, called Prince Gaga by the tabloid German press, claims "In house house rules, I can give my family the right to live at Schloss Sigmaringen as soon as my wife is pregnant." Unfortunately for Carl Alexander, the family laws make no such statement.
