It's interesting in that she is identifying herself in that list with a social status position not a personal accomplishment or achieved professional status. Most people make a real attempt to distance their professional life from birth status, and in this case it looks like she is using the royal status granted to her by her now defunct marriage as coat tails for her professional life. Unusual, not so? Or am I misunderstanding?
Are they divorced now?

The Decree Nisi has been issued but the Decree Absolute will not be issued until the financial issues have been settled in court.

Tessy promotes strongly Annabella Diamonds and W One Knightsbridge Aesthetic & Cosmetic Clinic at her Instagram.

Thank you. That was my guess too. As long as Tessy is Louis' wife, she can be styled Princess Tessy of Luxembourg. (The discussion was if Tessy could still use the title or not).

Princess Tessy got her copy of 'Killer Intent' signed by author Tony Kent on Thursday evening. She was probably going to or returning from a gala.

Tessy posted the pic on her Instagram page as well.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Be7mr5Bh...rom_luxembourg

She had been attending a celebration for Chinese new years as well as a birthday for one of her friends.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Be6OP34B...rom_luxembourg

It seems the party was being hosted by Chopard luxury watches.

The dress was a Diana Wang Couture (same Diana whose birthday it was??)

The grand-ducal family usually is so discreet and down-to-earth. This public display of luxury and parading around on this sort of events is so non-Luxembourg. Tessy really does not fit in that family.

Something has gone to her head? She expects the same interest/respect (whatever it may be) with a divorce-link to the family? Sad if that is what has happened.

Thanks for the details! Unfortunately, I cannot see Tessy's instagram links. She made it private again.

Tessy recently wore a Natan dress previously worn by Alexandra:

Tessy's Instagram is public again. She promotes her interview at Seele Magazine.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BfK_AoOh...rom_luxembourg

And here is the interview

Tessy has changed her name at her LinkedIn to Tessy Antony de Luxembourg, and removed the princess title.

She is changing her name and title quite often, including into impossible title and name combinations (such as Tessy Antony princess of Luxembourg), so we'll have to wait and see. I assume a formal announcement will be made once everything is finalized.

In her recent interview she apparently asked that 'Tessy de Nassau' was used and her instagram still uses 'Theresa' as her name... In the Seelemag interview it says that she 'held' a royal title, so that suggests that she doesn't hold it any longer and that would be the case after the divorce is finalized.

Her new job according to the magazine us 'Director of the Impact department for the EMEA regions at a global media company'. I am not sure why she qualified for that job given the mess she made of the media in her private life in the last year. However, she knows how to draw attention, so hopefully that will be used for good purposes instead of focussing on herself.

I like her acknowledgement that her title opened doors for her and I agree that her education and dedication mattered but UNAIDS would mostnlikely not have asked her without her title and the exposure that brings even if she had had put in exactly the same hard work. Although she probably compares herself to other titled people and focuses on the fact that she achieved certain things that others in a comparble situation didn't.

I had no idea about her religious leanings (other than formally being catholic), so it's interesting to read that she is attracted to the eastern traditions and meditates. Her belief that there is no religion that fits for everyone is against the teachings of the church she says to attend. Which is the Anglican church (not sure how she connects to her catholic roots by attending an evangelical Anglican church instead of a Roman-Catholic church) that developed the Alhpa Course.

Congratulations and best of luck on her new job. Good article, her humanitarian activities are admirable.

As for her LinkedIn name… it irks me. I understand she needs to rebrand herself yet Tessy Antony de Luxembourg is incorrect. Tessy Antony or Tessy de Nassau (if she is allowed that surname) is more appropriate on a professional networking site. Also, why the teasing / secrecy about the new job? I recall some Instagram posts/comments where she’s excited but couldn't reveal her new position. That was unnecessary.

Tessy's interview with Hanieh Vidmar about public speaking and her projects. Probably done last November as she mentions taking her sons to Dubai weeks ago.
- being a confident speaker and advice to build that confidence (research the topic, bring a friend/family if you can, she prefers to hold onto something)
- identifies with women who feel uneasy returning to the work force after having children
- her title opened doors and opportunities
- briefly mentions rebranding herself in preparation for post-divorce life
- describes how Professors without Borders was founded and its activities (getting commitments from professors, invitations from governments, facilities, etc.)
- Professor without Borders' summer school costs £4-10,000 for 4 teachers for 2 weeks (covers books, accommodation, flights, etc.)

Interview with HRH Princess of Luxembourg, Tessy Antony – Hanieh Vidmar

I agree, Prisma. It seems that Tessy is using "de Luxembourg" as an additional surname alongside Anthony. If I came across her profile I'd presume it was a fansite who didn't understand how titles worked. Not Tessy herself.
