To mark their tenth wedding anniversary, Prince Louis and Princess Tessy have given their first joined interview to the Luxembourgish media, namely RTL. The full video can be watched here. Here's a rough translation of what the duo said.

About the past ten years...

Princess Tessy: Time flies. It was a beautiful time, we learned a lot and made lots of memories. 

Prince Louis: The children are growing older and older. With them you see how time passes. 

About their wedding day...

Princess Tessy: When I entered [the church], it was very emotional. To see my husband. 

Prince Louis: I was nervous, we were young. They are good memories, I'm very happy with the decision I made.

Princess Tessy: It was very emotional, it's really hard to put it into words. It was wonderful. You didn't really know all the things that are coming your way as a young couple. We watched the video the other day and it was a bit funny to see yourself. I had already forgotten a lot of things, little details. It was a beautiful day.

About Tessy becoming a princess...

Princess Tessy: It was a big honour for me as a Luxembourger to receive the title of a Princess of Luxembourg. There were big emotions as I'm very proud of my country.

About their life...

Prince Louis: We lived in Florida for two years and it was a good experience. However, it is very nice to be back in Europe near the family. We've been living in London for almost five years now.

Princess Tessy: My husband is working on his master's in an area that interests him very much, psycho-social studies. I founded my own NGO working in the field of education, which is important to me. 

About their children...

Prince Louis: There's lots to tell you! They are very active, they never stop.

Princess Tessy: Gabriel is very sensitive. He cares a lot for others, more than about himself. Noah is very active. Also sensitive but he's also very straight forward, a strong character. 

About coming home...

Prince Louis: We come back mumble, mumble [every two months, I think]. To see family but also for official events, when there are things we can help out with.

Princess Tessy: It's always beautiful to come home, to see everyone. I really like walking through the city [of Luxembourg] or Niederkorn. I like to sit with my father on the terrace, drink a good coffee, to speak to everyone. Luxembourg is very important to the two of us, we like to come home as often as possible.
