Luxembourg's royal family are set to welcome a new addition in the coming months.

The Grand Ducal Court announced on Thursday that Prince Felix and his wife, Princess Claire, are expecting their third child.

The palace shared a charming photograph of the couple sitting on a bench in a garden with their two eldest children, Princess Amalia, nine, and Prince Liam, six.

Proud father Prince Felix, 39, can be seen beaming as he holds hands with Princess Claire, 38, dressed in a floral midi dress. Liam matches his father in a suit, while Amalia looks sweet in a pink dress.

The couple, who met while both studying at Swiss boarding school, Collège Alpin International Beau Soleil, married on 17 September 2013.

Since their nuptials, Prince Felix and Princess Claire have been living in the south of France at the Château Les Crostes, a winery in Lorgues that has been owned by Claire's family, the Lademachers, for many years.

The baby will be the seventh grandchild for Prince Felix's parents, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.

It comes just months after the birth of Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie's second child, Prince François, in March.

Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie, who are the future Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, also have a three-old-son, Prince Charles.

Grand Duke Henri and Grand Maria Teresa are also parents to Prince Louis, 36, Princess Alexandra, 32, and Prince Sébastien, 31.

Prince Louis shares two sons with his former wife, Tessy Antony de Nassau – Prince Gabriel, 17, and Prince Noah, 15.

Meanwhile, Princess Alexandra married Paris-based businessman Nicolas Bagory in a civil ceremony in Luxembourg in April. A religious wedding also took place at Saint Trophyme church in Bormes-Les-Mimosas, France.

The royal bride wore separates by Belgian label, Natan, for her civil ceremony. And for the religious service, Alexandra wowed in an Elie Saab, which featured a criss-crossed bodice and an A-line silhouette.
