Indeed, it is a very sad news.

More articles about it:

Royal Musings: Prince Georg-Constantin of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach dead at 41

On another note: does anyone know if his grandmother, Princess Felicitas zu Salm-Horstmar, is still alive? She should be about 98-y-o by now.

She was alive at the Wedding in 2015 as her presence was mentioned in one of the articles about the Wedding.

Oh gosh, the German houses do seem to be having bad luck lately. Such a tragic death, RIP Prince Georg-Constantin. My condolences to the family but especially to Olivia Paige considering that they were reportedly due to have their religious wedding soon.

Unfortunately this means that the extinction of yet another branch of the House of Wettin is written on the wall. Although there are unequal agnatic line members of a few branches in not to many years there's only going to be the Coburgs left.

Prince Michael has now named his daugher Leonie as his Heiriess. It was also expected that she would take over the culturell duties.

That seems a sensible choice. I suspect more and more houses will revert to such a solution.

I thin k it should depend on who is the last male. If Prince Michael dies before his cousin Wilhelm-Ernst he should become the Head of the House. And usually it would be then his daughter who btw is married to Count Florian of Hoenbroech and the mother of 5 sons would succeed. Leonie is still unmarried and has no children.

A public funeral Service for Prince Constantin will take place on 02. July at the Stadtkirche St Peter und Paul (or Herderkirche) in Weimar. Is is however not known if he will also be buried in Weimar.

Why so late after the death? Funerals usally take place in course of one-two weeks since.

Perhaps the family wanted more time to mourn privately given the tragic circumstances of Georg-Constantin's death, though I agree it does seem somewhat late in comparison to most funeral dates.
