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.

Hmmm.....well if there is some strange house rule from the dim mists of time that may actually allow Corinna and Gaga to live in the Palace it can be quickly remedied, as head of the house of Hohenzollern, Prince Karl Friedrich could just change the rule . Poor Corinna alas I think her fairy-tale will soon become a nightmare.

Oh, I doubt there is a house law about this. Carl Alexander has serious issues.

Issues - really? He marries a young black woman and he has "issues", if he had married a white woman none of you would have any comment about it whatsoever. You are the one with issues.

Dear Woman of Value, My comments have nothing to do with the color of Corinna's skin. Carl Alexander is mentally challenged. This is not a comment on the bride although the marriage was put together by Frederick Prinz von Anhalt (real name Robert Lichtenberg) who is married to Zsa Zsa Gabor.
In the German press, Carl Alexander has been known as Prince Gaga ... His elevator does not go up to the top floor. Rather than make silly commments, it would be in your best interest to understand that this is an arrangement, and nothing more. It will not last, as Carl Alexander has no money and no castle. That chip on your shoulder is like more like a boulder.

Where do other like family members reside? Have any resided at said residence?

Did you actually read the article, Chele. The schloss is owned by the Prince of Hohenzollern (Karl Friedrich) and he lives there with his family. By the way, this story is several years old, and the couple apparently divorced.
