The couple had been due to tie the knot this year, with the Grand Ducal court sharing some official images at the time of their engagement.

The prince popped the question in the south west of France during a road trip between Lourdes and Biarritz – but Louis was forced to propose not once but twice!

"We went through a village with an absolutely incredible view over the Pyrenees. There was a small church standing alone," Prince Louis told Point De Vue at the time.

He added: "I remember the sunset, it was very beautiful. We went into the church and I got down on one knee. I told Scarlett: 'Don't be scared!' I asked her... But I actually had to ask twice! 

"In the emotion of the moment, she forgot to say 'yes'. I had to ask her hand in marriage a second time to get the - yes!"
