Former Princess Tessy shares support for Prince Louis of Luxembourg after end of his engagement

Tessy Antony de Nassau, formerly Princess Tessy of Luxembourg, has shared her support for her ex-husband, Prince Louis after he announced that his engagement to Scarlett-Lauren Sirgue had ended.

On her Instagram account story, Tessy posted a photo of Louis holding her son, Theodor, saying: “We are sending a big hug to you!”

Tessy and Louis announced their separation in January 2017 after marrying in 2006. The pair were granted a divorce in April 2019. Since then, the couple has remained close friends as they raise their two sons, Prince Gabriel and Prince Noah.

Tessy has since remarried to Swiss businessman Frank Floessel. They have a son, Theodor, who was born in August 2021.

Prince Louis and Scarlett-Lauren were guests at the baptism of Theodor in October 2021.

Prince Louis and Frank Floessel are also known to get along well.

The Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg announced the end of the engagement between Prince Louis and Scarlett-Lauren on 22 February. The couple has said they remain best friends and Scarlett-Lauren enjoys a good relationship with his family.

The couple told Point de Vue, “We have been in love with each other for the past four years. We always have tried to be completely honest with each other. Even when this honesty hurts us like today, we are more than ever convinced it is crucial.

“Thinking about things a lot and getting to the bottom of it, we eventually admitted that as a family, as parents, our visions are too divergent. Our ambitions in life are too different.”

Louis’s parents, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, have said they welcome the maturity of the decision.
