The Word is buzzing about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby boy. It’s kinda amazing to think that the purest and most guarded bloodline on the planet just added a young black man into the mix. But did you know that Meghan isn’t the only Royal in Europe who is “mixing” things up? There are several women of color who have married into Royal families on the continent and they have now produced offspring who are as royal as their lily white ancestors. So if you are wondering what it will be like for a child of color growing up as a possible heir to a throne, then look no further than Prince Alfons of Liechtenstein.
His mother is Princess Angela, she is Afro-Panamanian, and the first women of African decent to marry into a reigning European dynasty. In 2000 she married Prince Maximilian, from the tiny country and a year later Alfons was born.
He has lived a charmed and very private life thus far, spending his early years at a boarding school in Germany and he graduated this year from the very high brow Wellington College in London.
Alfons played soccer and basketball in school and also loves horse back riding and skiing. He’s fluent in three languages, and just in case you missed it, the Royal Family of Liechtenstein is the richest of all the royal families in Europe. So Alfons is all good.
