Prince Louis was previously married to Tessy Antony, with whom he shares two sons, Prince Gabriel of Nassau, 14, and Prince Noah of Nassau, 12. The couple divorced in 2019.
A date for the wedding has not yet been set.

The good news comes more than a month after former Luxembourg Princess Tessy announced she is expecting her first child with her handsome Swiss businessman fiancé.
Take to Instagram, the ex-royal, 34, shared a snapshot of her blossoming baby bump as she snuggled with financier and CEO Frank Floessel, writing: ‘Spring is the perfect time for delicate flowers to grow.’

In the photo, Tessy and Frank could be seen cuddling with each other, the businessman’s hands resting gently on the mother of two’s growing baby bump.
The former royal family has not revealed how far along she is or when her due date is expected at her post.
It comes after the couple announced their engagement to each other late last year, with Tessy on the alert Instagram : ‘Yes until 2021 and many more years together.’
Frank also shared his own joy at the big news by sharing RTL today: “After mastering the extraordinary and difficult together last year, I took the opportunity to take the next step in our relationship and I am overjoyed that Tessy said yes.”
Tessy became a princess in 2006 when she married Prince Louis, with the couple sharing two sons and divorcing in April last year.
Last year, she said Hello magazine that it ‘took a long time’ after her divorce, when her royal titles were taken away, explaining, ‘After every relationship, it takes a while to heal when the heart is broken. It was really great for me to realize that I can trust and love again. It’s nice to see life go on. ‘
Tessy went on to say that she is ‘very happy’ that her ex-husband Prince Louis has a close relationship with their sons, despite the fact that they cannot see each other during quarantine.
She said her son’s ‘love and trust’ with their father had ‘grown stronger’ through the divorce during the pandemic.
Tessy has previously shared how her family “suffered greatly” when she became a princess in 2006 after marrying Prince Louis, whom she met in 2004.
Frank was first photographed on a family walk with the proud mom and her two boys on April 4, with Tessy captioning the photos ‘Family is all that matters’ featuring two love heart emojis
Speaking on Sky News’ special report The Meghan Effect, Tessy explained, “ My little nephew had to switch schools twice. My twin brother was bullied incredibly at work – he still is.
‘My sister, my parents suffered, my oldest brother stopped talking to me because of that, because it was too much for him.
‘That was when I got married, and when I got divorced, oh my god the same.’
Born a commoner, Tessy joined the Luxembourg Army in 2002 at the age of 18, reaching the rank of Corporal. Two years later, when she was one of the few female UN peacekeepers in Kosovo, she met Prince Louis, who was visiting the army.

His family only became aware of their love affair when Tessy became pregnant and gave birth in September 2005 at the age of 19, and unmarried, giving Grand Duke Henri his first grandson.
It infuriated the royal family and Prince Louis relinquished any claim to the title of Grand Duke because of the constitutional crisis they had caused by having a child out of wedlock.
When Tessy married Prince Louis in a modest church wedding in September 2006, six months after giving birth, the Grand Duke deprived her of any claim to his title.
The couple’s fairytale wedding broke up in 2016 and they received a nisi decree in February last year.
