Afterwards, the couple joyfully welcomed a baby boy in August 2020, with celebrations from the royal family and friends.
Sadly, in 2022, after a year and seven months, the couple faced the heartbreaking loss of their son, who was also the only heir. The cause of the prince’s death remains unknown, as the royal family has chosen not to disclose it.
