German Royalty: Prince Humbertus (1909-51)

Figure 1.--Prince Hubertus continued to be dressed in sailor suits even after his Grand Father abdicated in 1918. This photograph looks to have been taken a year or so before German capitulation and the abdication.

I know very little about Prince Hubertus Hohenzollern. He was the third son of Crown Prince Frederich Wilhelm, the oldest son of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Like his father and uncles, Hubertus and his brothers were largely dressed in sailor suits as boys. This was true even after his Grandfather, Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated in 1918. The German princes wore their sailor suits with both long and short pants. Humbertus is pictured here in a long pants sailor suit.
