The Princely House of Liechtenstein has announced that Prince Constantin, the youngest son of Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein, has died unexpectedly at the age of 51.

State parliament held a minute’s silence earlier today.

Apostolic administrator Benno Elbs said, “It was with great sadness that I learned today of the death of HH Prince Constantin of Liechtenstein. On behalf of the Archdiocese of Vaduz, I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to HH Prince Hans-Adam II, the wife of the deceased, Princess Marie, and their children Prince Moritz, Princess Georgina and Prince Benedikt. I am united with them and the entire royal family in mourning and praying for the deceased.”

“This afternoon, at 3 p.m., the bells rang in all the parish churches of the archdiocese. I invite all believers in the Principality to join in prayer for Prince Constantin and thus express their solidarity with the Princely House. I wish Prince Hans-Adam II, Princess Marie, the children and everyone who mourns the deceased a lot of strength and comfort in the hope of resurrection. You may feel supported by the many people who are praying for the deceased throughout the Principality. God grant Prince Constantin eternal rest.”

Prince Constantin was seventh in the line of succession to the Liechtenstein throne. He leaves behind his wife, Princess Marie, and his children, Prince Moritz, Princess Georgina and Prince Benedikt.

Prince Constantin was born on 15 March 1972, and he studied law in Salzburg. He was the general director and chairman of the board of the Prince Liechtenstein Foundation, which holds most of the family’s assets. He was also chairman of the Supervisory Board of Liechtenstein Group AG and a member of the Board of Directors of Liechtenstein Group Holding AG.
