And I really love the name Louis Ferdinand just like his ancestors.
I was quiet sure that if there would be a boy, there would be a Louis Ferdinand after Georg Friedrich father and grandfather. It surprises me only that they have not choosen it for the older boy and Heir.

That's what I've been wondering about as well.
Carl Friedrich is a great name but I would have expected the eldest boy to carry the name of Georg Friedrich's own father.

I can think of at least 2 reasons:
1. Carl Friedrich simply sounds more German than Louis Ferdinand. The German version of Louis would be Ludwig. And K(C)arl and Friedrich are VERY kingly names.
2. Compensation?, something like: OK your twin brother came out first and is therefore the heir but you will have the name of my beloved father.

I would love to know if they are identical or not and if they were born naturally or by caesarean. Apparently they refused to give any more details. I hope they won't stick to this media policy forever.

I don't think will get more Information for the moment. And for the first pics we have probably to wait until the christening. After all they are private people, not like the members of reigning families.

Made me think of a special verse added to the British national anthem in 1859 to celebrate the birth of the future Wilhelm II

Hail the auspicious morn!
To Prussia's throne is born
A royal heir
May he defend its laws
Joined with old England's cause,
Thus win all men's applause!
God save the Queen!

How absolutely wonderful, happy and joyous. I do hope this new generation will become fully integrated into the social fabric of current European 'Royals'. I look forward to seeing pictures of the happy new family.

Yes, it has been known since the beginning of January (Monarchisten was, if I am not mistaken, the first to tweet about it).
The gender of the babies wasn't known until after they were born.

I am delighted that there are 2 heirs to the Imperial House of Prussia. They had been getting thin on the ground! And non-reigning houses seem to have difficulty modernising - I think only Roumania has brought in gender equality - wisely, because King Michael has no sons, but he has 4 daughters!

Well done to Sophie for having done so promptly what all dynasts are required to do - produce heirs! :-)

I was hoping that during the Easter there will be the baptism of boys and eventually their photos will be released but it doesn't seem to happening...
