Prince Joachim of Prussia's religious wedding

Prince Joachim of Prussia and Countess Angelina of Solms-Laubach will be married in a religious ceremony on June 29 at Pollenca, Majorca.

The church wedding was originally scheduled for Berlin, but the venue was changed a few months ago, as I learned in confidence from several sources.

I also knew that the civil marriage had already taken place and Joachim and Angelina were the parents of a daughter, Georgina Prinzessin von Preussen, who was born last September.

Prince Joachim, an officer in the reserves of the German Federal Armed Services, studied economics and business administration at the ESCP Europe in London, Paris and Berlin.  He is the Manager of Accenture's Berlin office. He  is the youngest of three children of the late Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia and his second wife, Ehrengard von Reden.   He has two older siblings, Prince Friedrich Wilhelm, a lawyer, who is married with two children, and Princess Viktoria Luise, who is married to the Hereditary Prince of Leiningen. 

Prince Joachim is a first cousin of Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia, the head of the former ruling house.

Countess Angelina Sylvia Annelise Margot von Solms-Laubach is the second of four children of Count Friedrich and his wife, Baroness Sylvia von Podewils.    She studied architecture at the University of Arts in Berlin.  She currently works as an architect and interior designer.
