Princess Alexandra of Hannover was a nice person.
She helped a lot of Young people to start their life.
Among these people is my daughter who is working in Frankfurt now.
Princess Alrxandra accepted her to Live in her House for some months last year until she managed to find a job and have her own appartment.
Although i never met Princess i have heart the best for her.
We owe a great thank you to Princess whose death made us very sad.
We hope that other people will continue the work that Princess done up till now.
