The newly named little prince was born on 28 November at 3:59 am at the Beaulieu Clinic in Geneva, Switzerland. He is fourth in the line of succession to the throne behind his uncle, father, and older sister due to the introduction of absolute primogeniture in 2011, by decree of Grand Duke Henri.

He is the second child for Prince Félix and Princess Claire. They have a 2-year-old daughter, Princess Amalia, who was born on 15 June 2014 at the Grand Duchess Charlotte Maternity Hospital in Luxembourg.
