yes, the people who they marry will be prince or princess of luxembourg and nassau. however, there aren't many official duties for the princes.

In Luxembourg are there ranks below Prince/Princess? Such as dukedoms, earldoms and all the other stuff the English have? Person the children of the current princes' and princess will become them ^__^

their children will also be princes or princesses of luxembourg and nassau, although they are forced to 'abdicate' their rights of succession because they marry an unsuitable person (as happened with prince jean, who married helena vestur).

i don't think his parents didn't like her, but their first daughter was born before the marriage.

I see. So, Jean gave up his succession right, but his children and wife were still given the titles of Prince and Princess? Is that correct?

in fact no. as other grandchildren of jean and josephine charlotte were given the title of prince/princess of nassau and luxembourg, the children of helene and jean were given the titles of count/countess of luxembourg, and not nassau.

Grand Duke or Duchess instead of a King or Queen.
