Two new QVDS in the Leiningen family.

Well, two new QVDs in the Leiningen family.

HSH The Hereditary Princess of Leiningen gave birth to a daughter, HSH Princess Alexandra Viktoria Luise Ehrengard, on February 28, 2020, at Frankfurt-am-Main,  the day before Leap Year.   The confirmation is from the mother.

The former Princess Viktoria Luise von Preussen, the daughter of the late HRH Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia and Ehrengard von Reden, married HSH Hereditary Prince Ferdinand of Leiningen.

Princess Alexandra is a four-time descendant of Queen Victoria.

HSH Princess Isabelle of Leiningen, the wife of HSH Prince Hermann zu Leiningen, gave birth to a son, Leopold Konstantin Rainer Andreas was born on October 16, 2019, at Coburg.

The infant prince was baptized on January 5, 2020, at Amorbach's Lutheran church.

The godparents were Leopold Ferch,  HSH Princess Cecilia of Leiningen, daughter of HSH Prince Karl-Emich of Leiningen and his first wife, the late HSH Princess Margarita of Hohenlohe-Ohringen, and Count Konstantin von Schönborn.

Leopold Ferch is the eldest child of Baroness Alexandra von Holzhausen (daughter of HI &RH Archduchess Maria Magdalena of Austria, Princess of Tuscany) and Christian Ferch.

Hereditary Prince Ferdinand and Prince Hermann are the sons of HSH Andreas, Prince of Leiningen, and his wife, HRH Princess Alexandra of Hanover.

Another QVD, Christian Ferch, as a godparent is an interesting choice. He and Hermann are 3rd cousins once removed (?) through Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh and Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna. Is Christian a school or university friend of Hermann or Viktoria Luise? Or are his parents friends of the Leningens or Prussians?
