Really?
Prince (Friedrich-) Constantin, born 1980, is the son of the late Prince Friedrich-Ernst of Saxe-Meiningen by his second wife Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha.
On the death of the current Head of the Ducal House, Duke (Friedrich-) Konrad who is unmarried, Constantin will assume the Headship.

Just a question: why is Duke Konrad the Head of the Ducal House and not Duke Constantin? Constantin is the only son of the late Duke Friedrich Ernst, while Konrad is FE's younger brother.

Because he has a noble mother, although a minor noble. Friedrich Ernst mother was a commoner. Apparently there was some quarrel between the brothers but it was then agreed that Konrad is the heir but because he is unmarried Constantin will suced him.

yes, Friedrich Ernst had no dynastic rights, and therefore did not succeed his father as the Head of the House in 1984.

She is the daughter of the late Prince Friedrich Ernst of Saxe Meiningen (himself the son of Duke Bernhard of Saxe-Meiningen) and his second wife Princess Beatrice, née Princess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

I could not find any pictures of any of the remaining household.
It is ridiculous that Pr Constantin cannot be considered as heir apparent to the Saxe-Meiningen House.. He is the son of Friedrich-Ernest, Prinz von Saxe-Meiningen (according to Gotha almanach) and Pss of Saxe-Coburg. Yes, his father was son of Duke of saxe-Meiningen and non-titled woman, but look at the other proncely and ducal houses in Germany - this is not now the reason of refusal to succeed the headship! (not talking about European reigning royals consorts... lik Mette-Marit, Catherine or Maxima)

Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen (1891-1971) married Prince Adalbert of Prussia. How was she related to the Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen who married the future William IV of England?

When Duke George I died in 1803, his wife Luise (Louise) Eleonore became the regent for their minor son, Duke Bernhard II.
When the duchy was struck with famine, Luise had wheat imported.

Prince Constantin of Saxe-Meiningen has had a son, Prince Michael, who was born in July 2015.

The little prince should be the eventual head of the Ducal House, following his great-uncle and father.

That's quite a surprise. Does it mean that Prince Constantin is married (and we didn't know it)?
