Princess Tessy of Luxembourg announces she is divorcing husband Prince Louis after 10 years of marriage

Prince Louis and Princess Tessy of Luxembourg are divorcing after ten years of marriage.
Prince Louis, 30, the third son of the Grand Duke and Duchess, married Princess Tessy, 31, in September 2006, six months after the birth of their eldest son.

The couple currently live with their sons Prince Gabriel, 10, and Prince Noah, nine, in London. 

Princess Tessy today released a statement confirming their ‘extremely sad’ divorce but said they will ‘always remain unified by parenthood to our two precious boys’.

The most recent high-profile royal divorce in Europe took place in 2005, when Princess Alexandra of Denmark and Prince Joachim officially ended their marriage.

However, in August 2016 Princess Martha Louise of Norway and her husband Ari Behn announced their separation, so it is possible they may finalise their divorce before Prince Louis and Tessy’s split becomes official.

Prince Louis, one of the duke and duchess’ five children, reportedly met Tessy during a visit to the Army, which she joined aged 18.

Upon their marriage Prince Louis, aged 20 at the time, had to give up his succession rights as his bride, then aged 21, was not of royal blood.

Although he retained the title of Prince of Luxembourg, his wife and sons were originally given the surname Nassau and no titles.
