Her remarkable journey from a humble background as the daughter of a
tiler to becoming princess of a European realm is the stuff of
fairytales.

Prince Louis of Luxembourg's young wife, now styled Princess Tessy by
permission of her father-in-law, Grand Duke Henri, marked her new
title by joining her royal relatives at the country's annual National
Day celebrations.

Tessy, a former soldier, met her royal beau while she was serving as
driver in the armed forces.

The couple welcomed their first child in March 2006 when they were
both 19, before going on to marry later that year. On tying the knot,
Louis, Henri's third son, gave up his claim to the throne.

Pretty in a lime-green ensemble, the new princess joined her dashing
husband (left) and key members of the royal family at a service to
mark National Day in Notre Dame Cathedral.

The line-up of royals included Grand Duke Henri and his wife Maria
Theresa along with their three other sons, the heir to the dukedom, 27-
year-old Guillaume, Prince Felix, 24, and Prince Sebastien, 17.

Their only daughter, 18-year-old Princess Alexandra was absent from
the celebrations, however, as she is currently taking university
exams.

Can they (in their descendance eventually) become Grand Duke and Head
of the House?

No, because upon their marriage Louis de L gave up his succession
rights and those of their son Gabriel, and any of the couple's future
children.

Are we still waiting to see the decree. It may include Louis and his
descendants.. Though it was a precedence for the Grand Duke's
brothers who married commoners. I am glad though Tessy was given a
title after a period of time had passed and her sons are Princes. As
Louis is a descendant of the Bourbon Parma's what is the right to also
be HRH, Prince of Bourbon Parma? If his ancestor gave up his rights
to that, wouldn't exclude his descendants from having the title
included amongst their other styles such as Nassau etc?

The boys did not become "of Luxembourg" - in 1995, the rules were changed
only children of the sovereign and heir are that - all other male line is
"of Nassau."

Would the child born out of wedlock have a right secede in any case? I
assume that all royal lines normally bar the secession of illegiate
children. But do illegitimate become legitimate if their parents marry
(as in this case) post-partum?

As far as I know only Prince Louis gave up his succession rights. As Prince
Gabriel
was born out of wedlock, I assume he didn't have any succession rights to
give up. From the
time of renunciation Prince Louis became "legally dead" what succession
rights concerns, so
Prince Noah would not get any rights either. Still not sure how
renunciations are dealt witjh
in Luxembourgian law - I plan to check into it soon.

True. Only Tessy became Princess of Luxembourg, while her sons became
Princes of Nassau, as
both the Wort newspaper article and my own website suggested. I should have
spent some more
time editing my message to ATR before posting it.

The Grand Duke's decree concerning Tessy and the children have not yet been
published in Memorial.
