Maturity is achieved through experience. People mature as they grow older, because they experienced more things. Unless, tramatic experiences accured in his life, Louis, at 19, is not mature. Maybe we should begin looking at were Louis is in his development. Like Lady Marmarlade said, we cannot compair to Fredrik or Felip, because they are adults..Louis is an adolescent.

Verying somewhat on race and gender, by 19, 70% of females and 80% of males have lost thier virginity...

But if maturity is achieved through experience, he'll become mature very quickly now! There'saying "You grow as your tasks grow" (sorry for not translating it any better) - that's what's going to happen now, he'll have to grow up quickly as a father. Having babies at the age of 19 is not precisely uncommon around the world, you know. It's only uncommon that we've got such a long time to grow up. It'sa luxury!

Who knows what Louis and Tessy have planned for their lives. But I'm sure they will have all the help and guidance they need to go on .

I guess he will have to grow up quickly. That is if he decides to be responsible.

his mid life crisis should be interesting. When he realizes he had a short childhood, and tries to capture it.

What do you think he will do? He has already been bungee jumping.

None, unless the parents get married, and if they do it will more than likely be Prince/Princess of Nassau.

Well, it doesn't really seem like they are going to get married.

In the announcement it was said that they won't get married soon so I guess we have to wait at least till 2007 for the marriage.

In my eyes Louis is still a little bit too young to get married. Does anybody know if he could be the youngest father among the royals next spring?

I think he will be the youngest father. I think the only one that comes close is Fredrick.

Here's the picture on the site....(source- pointdevue.fr)
where is the larger version?

I think since it said they were dating for a year, a paternity test won't be needed. He might get a job. But one that doesn't require too much work.

I have the feeling that it would be easy for him to find a job. It would seem like he has a lot of connections

Since his father is the GD, I would say yes. But I find that royals in general have a very easy time finding jobs simply because they are royal.

Can i just say first of all CONGRATULATIONS TO PRINCE LOUIS AND TESSY!!!!!

While i don't agree with all the opinions in this thread - they've all been very interesting!!! I think that everyone's shocked (including myself) because PL is royal. If he were non-royal this wouldn't make any difference. The issue here is what we expect of royal's in the 21st century. PL is not the first royal to have an illegitimate baby and he won't be the last. But at least the Luxembourg royal family haven't covered up the pregnancy and kept it a secret.:)

I read one comment which suggested that GD H and MT have tried to perfect a certain image of their lives and family as being 'perfect' and i absolutely agree. An illegitimate child sort of (AND I DO MEAN SORT OF - AFTER ALL ILLEGITMACY IS NOT A BIG DEAL) spoils that image. It must be slightly embarrassing for them to have a very young teenage son, having a baby out of wedlock.

The problem for royals now is that they are expected to live and follow rules and morals which the vast majority of the population don't bother with anymore. Like not getting divorced, not having affairs outside of marriage and not having children outside of marriage. Also they are expected to be role models. But i don't think people still look up to royals in the same way that they used to. It's hard for them because they are expected to live up to a certain image of perfection, which few can achieve. We put them on pedistals and get angry or disappointed (or both) when they fall of. Give the guy a break, he is only 19!!! We cannot expect a man of that age to be anybodies role model!!!

Remember that PL has excellent connections and comes from an EXTREMELY wealthy family. So yes the baby will change his and Tessy's life (a baby is ALWAYS a big change in your life no matter what your status is in society), however they will have financial support and nannies etc to help them and make their lives easier. So life won't be that hard. It never is if you have money.

I doubt the baby will inherit unless the couple marry in the future - thus legitimizing it. I wonder though if the baby will have a title? Can someone tell me what does PL do? Where will the couple live?

While i am sure that GD H and MT are happy for their son, they must be disappointed that this happened. Being Catholic monarchs it must be embarrasing for them to have a son having an illegitimate baby. However i doubt that the baby was planned. This was an 'accident' (BUT A WONDERFUL ONE AT THAT) but these things happen and we shouldn't condemn the couple for what has happened. They have not committed a crime and are not harming themselves or anyone else.

As for being Catholic and the issue of birth control and non-marital sex. Lets face it most Catholics now use birth control and the vast majority of people in the western world, religious or not HAVE SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE!!!

Like i said remember this is not a tragedy, a baby is going to be born. GD H and MT are going to grandparents. This won't change PL and Tessy's life in the same way as say an 'ordinary' couple. So we shouldn't worry too much.
