Prince Floris of Orange-Nassau, van Vollenhoven
Marriage and children
Prince Floris announced his engagement to Aimée Söhngen on 25 February 2005. The couple were married in a civil ceremony at the Stadhuis in Naarden on 20 October 2005 and in a religious ceremony on 22 October at the Grote Kerk in Naarden. Prince Floris had been 10th in the line of succession to the Dutch throne but decided not to seek parliamentary approval for his marriage, as would be required in the Netherlands. This means that Prince Floris ceased to be in line to inherit the throne when he married.
Prince Floris and Princess Aimée's first child, Magali Margriet Eleonoor van Vollenhoven, was born in Amsterdam on 9 October 2007. She is named for Aimée's sister, Magali Söhngen, and her mother Eleonoor, as well as Princess Margriet. Their second child, Eliane Sophia Carolina van Vollenhoven was born in Amsterdam on 5 July 2009. Their third child, a son named Willem Jan Johannes Pieter Floris, was born in The Hague on 1 July 2013.
Prince Floris currently works as a Relationship Banker in the Telecommunication, Media and Technology sector at ABN AMRO Amsterdam. Until 2007 he acted as a policy adviser to the Public Prosecution Service in the Netherlands, having graduated in 2002 from Leiden University with an LL.M. degree in Dutch corporate and criminal law.
