In a stunning engagement photo shared by the Grand Ducal court, the princess wore a lilac square-neck top with a matching blazer as she cuddled up to her new fiancé, who wore a dark blue suit that offset his platinum blonde hair. The happily engaged couple smiled for the camera, with Alexandra showing off the sparkling ring on her left hand which appears to be made up of diamonds on a gold band.

The Luxembourg royal has three brothers

Princess Alexandra is one of five children, with her brothers including Prince Guillaume, 40, Prince Felix, 38, Prince Louis, 36, and Prince Sébastien, 30. Prince Louis was the latest member of the family to announce his engagement, but he called it off earlier this year before walking down the aisle.

He popped the question to Parisian lawyer Scarlett-Lauren Sirgue in the south west of France during a road trip between Lourdes and Biarritz. They announced their plans to marry in April 2021, but they confirmed their split to French publication, Point de Vue, explaining that they planned to remain friends.

"In reflecting, together, on the commitment we wanted to make, we ended up admitting that our visions differ too much."
