Princess Alexandra of Hanover
That’s what you guys do when he’s not studying for college
In 2017, Princess Alexandra of Hanover appeared in public for the first time with her boyfriend Ben-Sylvester Strautmann, since then the two have been inseparable. But what does the millionaire’s son actually do privately?
Princess Alexandra of Hanover, 23, made her love for Ben-Sylvester Strautmann, 23, public during the French Ligue 1 championship match between AS Monaco and AS Saint-Etienne at Stade Louis II on May 17, 2017 in Monaco. The then 17-year-old was deeply in love with her sweetheart and, contrary to royal protocol, repeatedly snuggled up to the strong shoulders of the attractive millionaire’s son.
Princess Alexandra’s boyfriend is a student by day and a DJ by night
Princess Alexandra now appears regularly at public events with her partner, most recently the dream couple drew everyone’s attention at the traditional Rose Ball in Monte Carlo on July 8, 2022. An evening hosted by Strautmann’s mother-in-law, Princess Caroline of Hanover, 65, and her brother Prince Albert, 64. Except for Princess Charlène, 44, the whole royal family was there.
When Ben-Sylvester Strautmann is not posing for the curious photographers at Alexandra’s side, he is studying business administration at King’s College in London. Alexandra, on the other hand, is enrolled at Columbia University in New York. At night, however, the former basketball player turns into a DJ on some evenings and performs in very exclusive clubs on the Riviera and the surrounding area, as the French “Gala” reports in its current issue. He even founded his own small label with a friend a few years ago. However, some of Strautmann’s environment are said to find this nocturnal hobby somewhat “inappropriate”.

Ben-Sylvester Strautmann comes from a German family that made a fortune manufacturing and selling agricultural machinery. His parents are successful bankers and moved from Munich to Monaco when Ben-Sylvester was ten years old. In 2016 he met and fell in love with his great love Alexandra in the city-state. He is said to be valued by his in-laws above all for his modesty and discretion.
