The engagement of Hereditary Prince Alexander, the oldest son of the Duke Borwin and Duchess Alice of Mecklenburg and Miss Hande Macit, was announced today.

The Turkish-born Macit is the daughter of  Suphi and Cemile (nee Ucar) Macit.  She and Prince Alexander live in Rotterdam.

Hande was born on September 16,1992 inTarsus.  She and her older brother, Kerem, move to the Netherlands for their education.  One of the things they missed most from home was fresh yogurt.   After completing her BS in International Business Administration from RSM Erasmus University in 2014,  Hande and her brother began plans to start their own business, Luwia Yogurt.  They began producing "slowly fermented probiotic yogurt" in 2018, focusing on companies and chefs.  Earlier this year, Luwia Yogurt moved into the consumer market.

The milk comes from Rotterdam cows.

The recipe is made from traditional methods,  without the use of machines.   The siblings adopted the 11,000-year-old technique established by the Luwians, who lived in Anatolia, during the Bronze and Iron ages.

Prince Georg Alexander Michael Heinrich Ernst Franz Ferdinand Johannes Marie of Mecklenburg is the second of three children of Duke Georg Borwin Friedrich Franz Karl Stephan Konrad Hubertus Maria of Mecklenburg and Alice Wagner.  He was born in Freiburg, Germany, on July 17, 1991.
