Prince Louis and Tessy Antony Officially Divorced

Prince Louis and his now former wife Tessy Antony were officially divorced today. Mr Justice MacDonald pronounced a 'decree absolute' at a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London today, according to press reports. The former couple announced their decision to end their marriage more than two years ago in January of 2017

For the past two years, Prince Louis and Tessy Antony could not reach a financial settlement meaning that their divorce could not be finalised. It was since ruled by the High Court that Prince Louis should pay £4,000 child support for each of their sons, per year. The judge also ordered that his former wife and children should be given a "licence to occupy" the former family home in London "until the youngest child finishes his first degree". The Grand Duke previously let the court know that he would cover any of his grandchildren's schooling fees and health related costs. In general the High Court ruled that the Grand Ducal Family's wealth could not be factored into the divorce but that any child support would be based on Prince Louis' own earnings.

In accordance with the House Law of the Grand Ducal Family, the former Princess Tessy lost her title as Princess of Luxembourg, Nassau and Bourbon-Parma when the divorce became official. Going forward, we will make note of any of Tessy Antony's appearances at events of the Grand Ducal Family but will not cover her public and private lives any further.
