Princess Tessy of Luxembourg is splitting from her husband Prince Louis following an 11 year marriage.
Princess Tessy is now facing accusations of being a ‘gold digger’ after she launched divorce proceedings in the London courts.
Princess Tessie, 31, arrived for an initial hearing last week at the Royal Courts of Justice, in a bid to obtain a fair settlement in her divorce.
A High Court judge imposed interim reporting restrictions, preventing the media disclosing any of the financial details discussed in court.
The Princess’ counsel, Deborah Bangay QC, told the court: “My client has no wish to litigate and she made a very reasonable and sensible proposal. Unfortunately that proposal was rejected and my client had no option but to pursue this in litigation.”
Following the hearing Ms Bangay said: “She is not a gold digger. Far from it. She is simply seeking a fair and proper settlement.”
District Judge Richard Robinson granted a decree nisi at a family court in London in February after Princess Tessy spoke of the Prince’s “unreasonable behaviour.”
The Princess’ name has since been removed from the official website of the Luxembourg Royal Family and she lost her diplomatic status.
She will also lose the title of Royal Highness and will cease to be called Princess once the divorce becomes final.
