Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie Welcome Twin Sons

Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie

The Prince and Princess of Prussia are now proud parents of two boys. The twins were born on January 20 in Bremen, Germany. A statement released by Prince Georg Friedrich today announced the births with “great joy and gratitude”. The mother and children are all doing well.
