Princess Alexandra has welcomed her first child with her husband, Nicolas Bagory, the Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg announced on Tuesday.

In a statement, the palace said: "The Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess have the great joy of announcing the birth of their granddaughter Victoire, first child of their daughter Alexandra and their son-in-law Nicolas, born this Tuesday, May 14 in Paris. Both mother and child are doing well."

While no official photographs have been shared yet, the baby girl is the eighth grandchild for Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.

The birth of Victoire comes just three weeks after Princess Alexandra, 33, and Nicolas celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 22 April. Alexandra's pregnancy was confirmed by the Grand Ducal Court last December, and her newborn daughter is ninth in line to the Luxembourger throne.

The princess is the fourth and only daughter of the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess. She has three elder brothers – Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, Prince Felix and Prince Louis, as well as younger brother, Prince Sebastien.

Alexandra, who was raised in the Luxembourg countryside at Fischbach Castle, was previously excluded from the line of succession until 2011, when her father Grand Duke Henri issued absolute primogeniture, meaning that all of his female descendants had the right to be included in line to the throne.
