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 guide for the Prince. After years of friendship the pair stepped out as a couple in 2011.

Prince Ernst August of Hanover’s youngest son and his bride-to-be reside in Madrid but chose London as the location for their civil ceremony as that is where his mother lives. The couple has been 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. Prince Albert's sister is now estranged to his father, whom she shares daughter Princess Alexandra of Hanover.
