I had not read this information before, though the article is from 2013:

Waldeck-Pyrmont: Recovery of the Hereditary Prince Ongoing
Hereditary Prince Carl-Anton continues to recover from the very serious injuries he suffered earlier this year.

During a swim, the young man fractured a vertebra after hitting a rock head on on the River Main. The injuries he suffered have, for now and the time being, destined him to the permanent use of a wheelchair.

A student at the time of the accident, Carl-Anton was born in 1991. He is the firstborn of three sons of Fürst Wittekind and of his wife Cecilie (née Countess von Goeß-Saurau).

Recently there was a portrait abouth Hesse nobles on Hessen TV. In it there was also a short part of the Waldeck-Pyrmont Family and it was told that Hereditary Prince Carl Anton now seats in a wheelchair and is paraplegic. Soon the full portrait will be shown on hessen TV so we will probably get a bit more Information then.

It is a pity that the English translation has no correct terms for Fürst (or for Großfürst). The House von Waldeck und Pyrmont is a Fürstliches Haus and that does not translate correctly with "princely house".

The House De Ligne is a princely house. The House von Waldeck und Pyrmont us a step higher. In the Scandinavian languages, in German, in Dutch, this difference is clear. The descendants of a Fürst are a Prinz or a Prinzessin. There you already see that Fürst can not have exactly the same translation into Prince. It is also not correct that Großfürst and Großherzog have the same translation into Grand Duke. It is really not the same!

Thank you for explanation, I've never known about this difference. Probably, because in different languages there are different terms applied for different titles ( and for different kingdoms of course).

Therefore i use here and also on my blog always Fürst/Fürstin and not Prince/Princess.
But it is not always the case that the junior members of a Fürstliche House are Prince/Princess. In some mediatized Families they are Count/Countess. Like in the different Waldburg branches or in the Families Castell-Castell and Castell-Rüdenhausen. and in the Houses Stolberg-Stolberg only the children of the Fürst are Prince/Princess other members are Count/Countess.

"Prince Carl Anton new head of the Princely Foundation Bad Arolsen"
"Bad Arolsen. Generational change in Bad Arolsen Castle: Prince Carl Anton's new executive chairman of the princely foundation of the house Waldeck and Pyrmont and thus responsible for the maintenance of the castle and the other standing in usufruct possessions."
