Tessy, workman's girl-turned-princess, at ease in royal role

Friday June 25, 2010

Four years after the daughter of a tiler bore one of Europe's royal princes a son out of wedlock, she is now fully ensconed in the heart of the family.

Prince Louis of Luxembourg's young wife, now styled Princess Tessy (second left) by permission of her father-in-law, Grand Duke Henri, has taken gracefully to her role.

As was clear at  the country's national day celebrations. 

The couple - who later married and had another child - were joined by Henri and Louis' mother Maria Teresa and siblings.

Notably absent was Louis' brother 24-year-old Prince Felix, who attended Princess Victoria's wedding to Daniel Westling last weekend.
