The lord of the castle and entrepreneur from Bückeburg near Hanover said yes for the third time. Nothing was known about the celebration after church, but who was the maid of honor.
Bückeburg – With blue skies and sunshine, the castle owner and entrepreneur Alexander zu Schaumburg-Lippe married for the third time on Saturday. In the town church of Bückeburg, the 62-year-old gave the pianist Mahkameh Navabi (40) the word of consent.
Numerous citizens had gathered in front of the church to wave to the bride and groom.
The couple’s civil wedding took place last autumn. The church wedding was postponed for Corona reasons. The couple has been in a relationship since 2016.
For the wedding celebration at Bückeburg Castle following the church ceremony, there was no information about how many and which guests were invited.
It is the third marriage for the 62-year-old. Schaumburg-Lippe was previously married to Lilly zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and then to a Munich lawyer. He has two daughters with his second wife, his adult son Heinrich Donatus comes from his marriage to Lilly.
Lilly zu Sayn-Wittgenstein was the maid of honor at her ex-husband’s wedding. She referred to the new woman at his side as a friend. “She is an absolute human being, that connects us,” said Sayn-Wittgenstein of the “gala”.
Alexander zu Schaumburg-Lippe has been marketing his Bückeburg Castle around 60 kilometers west of Hanover as a tourist destination for years – the performances at the Princely Riding School and the annual Christmas market are popular with guests. dpa
