Cristian Alexander van Draak (26 May 2014) is a Brunanter prince, born to Queen Helene and Prince Bernd. The prince is second in line to succeed the throne, after his sister, Princess Marianne.


On 20 September 2013 the Royal Palace announced the Queen's second pregnancy.

Prince Cristian was born at the Royal Koningstad Hospital on 26 May at 22:48. He weighed 3,61 kilograms and measured 51 cm in length. The prince had jaundice at birth, having been born a week early; he was kept an additional day at hospital before being discharged. He was baptized on 3 November 2014 at St. Peter's Church in Koningstad by Bishop Adam Berger. His godparents are Tony Bryans and Mellisa Lang, both Lovian friends of his father. Filomena Giordimania is his nanny.

He undertook his first state visit in early 2015 with his parents and sister to Strasland, for the baptism of distant relative (and her parents' godchild) Emma Augusta Holme. He visited the Koningstadion and FC Kings players in July 2015 with his family and received an FC Kings shirt with his sister. Prince Cristian was a ring bearer at the wedding of his cousin, Princess Stephanie, in Kemburg in November 2016. Ahead of his fourth birthday in 2018, a small street in Ristley was named Prince Cristian Way.


The prince began studying at Maria Montessori School in the fall of 2017, as has his sister. Cristian is fully bilingual, speaking both English and Dutch equally well.
