A royal wedding will be taking places in the Americas next year. Prince Christian of Hanover and his fiancée Alessandra de Osma will say “I do” next March (15-17) in the bride’s native Peru. However the pair will celebrate their civil wedding in November of 2017.
It was revealed back in April that Princess Caroline of Monaco’s stepson and the Hispanic beauty, who is known as the “Princess of the Andes” are engaged. The couple first met in 2005 during Christian’s visit to the South American country. Alessandra, who was only 14 at the time, served as a cicerone for the Prince. After years of friendship the pair stepped out as a couple in 2011.

Prince Ernst August of Hanover’s youngest son has brought his longtime love to a number of important family events over the years, including the 2015 nuptials of his stepbrother Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo. Earlier this year, the pair attended the annual Rose Ball in Monaco with the Prince’s stepsister, Charlotte Casiraghi, and stepmother, Caroline who married Christian’s father — her estranged husband and father of daughter Princess Alexandra of Hanover— in 1999. Christian isn’t the only member of the Hanoverian royal family currently planning a royal wedding. The Prince’s older brother, Prince Ernst, 33, married his fiancée Ekaterina Malysheva at a medieval church in July.
