(CS) Luxembourg's Prince Louis and Princess Tessy on Thursday received their BA degrees from the Richmond American International University in London.

Prince Louis graduated with a BA in Communications, with a thesis on publicity campaigns in the humanitarian field. Princess Tessy meanwhile graduated with a BA in International Relations, with a thesis on the rise of nationalism in Europe.

Prince Louis is the third-oldest child of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, born on August 3, 1986. He attended primary school in Lorentzweiler in Luxembourg before starting his secondary school studies at the American School of Luxembourg, which is now known as the International School.

He then followed in the footsteps of his older brothers and attended the Collège Alpin International Beau Soleil boarding school in Switzerland, from where he graduated in 2005.

In September 2006 he married Tessy Antony, following the birth of their first child, Prince Gabriel, in March that year. Their second son, Prince Noah, was born in 2006.

Princess Tessy was born in Luxembourg on October 28, 1985. Following her studies at Lycée Technique Mathias Adam, Tessy joined the Luxembourg army and volunteered to take part in a United Nations mission to Kosovo in 2004.

In 2005, she joined the Luxembourg embassy in London before working at the Grand Duchy's permanent representation at the United Nations in Geneva. Between 2005 and 2009, Tessy pursued studies in the fields of education and psychology before spending two years in the US together with Prince Louis, who studied Aeronautics and Aeronautical Management in the States.

The pair then moved to London to continue their studies.
