Prince Constantine, the son of Liechtenstein's reigning Prince Hans-Adam II and his late wife, Princess Marie, died suddenly at the age of 52. He was the third of the sovereign's four children and was seventh in line to the throne.
The princely court issued a statement announcing that the prince passed away on Tuesday, December 5. The next day, members of the Liechtenstein parliament observed a minute of silence in his memory.
Seventh in the line of succession, he is survived by his older brothers, Crown Prince Alois and Prince Maximilian, and his younger sister, Princess Tatiana.
