Lady Alexandra Hooper gave birth to a second son, Alden Peter Theodore Mountbatten Hooper, on March 27, 2020.    Lady Alexandra is the elder daughter of the Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma.  She married Thomas Hooper at Romsey Abbey on June 25, 2016.   Due to the illness of her father, Lord Mountbatten,  Lady Alexandra was given away by the Prince of Wales.

[At the time of the wedding, Alexandra was styled as the Hon. Alexandra Knatchbull as her father was Lord Brabourne, having succeeded his father as Baron in 2005.  He succeeded his mother, Patricia, as the 3rd Earl Mountbatten of Burma in 2017.]

Lady Alexandra and Thomas Hooper's elder son, Inigo Norton Sebastian Mountbatten was born on December 21, 2017.

 HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh is one of Inigo's godparents.  I expect Alden will also have a royal godparent.

Lady Alexandra has an older brother, Nicholas, who is styled as Lord Brabourne.  Their younger sister, the Hon. Leonora Knatchbull died as the result of kidney cancer on October 22, 1991.

The new mother is a Managing Director at FTI Consulting, a Global risk and investigation firm.  Thomas Hooper is the founder of (Making Maths add up.)
