scgOn the evening of March 21, 2013, His Highness Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha celebrated his 70th birthday at Schloss Callenberg in Coburg, Germany.

Over 250 people attended the prince’s birthday reception including longtime friends, local dignitaries, past employees, townspeople, and of course his children.  According to the newspaper, Neue Press Coburg, the prince gave a touching speech noting, “I am so happy that many of you have come today.  That shows me that I haven’t done much wrong in my life and that I have gained many friends.”
