I really admire Tessy. When her and Louis welcomed their first child I'm sure few people could have predicted what an intelligent, clear thinking lady she would be. Using her title and profile for good and to further the opportunities of others.

As an aside, on her Instagram she posted a photo of 'her aunt princess Mabel of Holland'. Does anyone know why she would refer to her as an aunt?

I agree with you. I, too, admire Tessy. She has gone from literally being the roughest stone around to a polished diamond. Although she comes from a very humble background [all that one has to do is to look at her family in various photographs], she is now poised, confident, elegant and quite pretty. She is literally the ugly duckling who became a swan.

absolutely! i agree with both of you. tessy has grown into a superb asset for the luxembourgish family. i remember the raised eyebrows when louis and her had a child out of wedlock and what a stir it caused for the catholic grand ducal court of luxembourg. look at her now! a poised, graceful, engaged lady with a loving family of four.

regarding the photo with 'her aunt princess Mabel of Holland': i think it's just a gesture of appreciation and perhaps the fact that they both work on women and gender issues worldwide, so perhaps mabel is a guiding figure, a mentor, or a helping hand for tessy...

Tessy is definitely one of my favorites. I was especially skeptical when she and Louis were first together and got pregnant, I admit it. But over the years, she has furthered her education and applied herself to some wonderful issues. She is such an inspiration to other young woman. Great job Princess Tessy.

Tessy at her Instagram
"I am not the ordinary girl, and definitely not the ordinary picture book 'princess' but I love my life how it is. My family is happy and that's all I am interested in. I will never be the perfect person and I want it to stay like that. Because that's me �� I want to thank you all for your support on my humanitarian work, my engagements, my work in general etc... But please don't forget that it is not me that makes these incredible things possible, it is a whole team, a community of wonderful and skilled people around me that work with me and that I respect and love."

Good news I often forget before kids, marriage and now school,she served in the military, with NATO peacekeeping. Between it and her masters in diplomacy, a good match.

Princess Tessy on her instagram ,She's attacking the local tabloid that made claims that she got through school and got her job because of her in-laws.

I understand her wish to correct such a story, especially as I am sure she worked hard for her degree -with two children around! However, such matters should not be dealt with in this fashion but by the courts' PR desk. The best reply to most stories in the gutter press is no reply at all.

As for the job: of course she would not have been hired if she was not competent for the job. However, having the last name 'de Nassau' does not hurt ones job perspectives. And considering the wealth of the GDF I would be surprised if during her study she and her husband were not able to afford a cleaning lady, baby sitter etc. and got some help to cover the costs of tuition fees and housing.

Princess Tessy has been very priviliged, esp. considering the fate of so many other young parents who struggle to make ends meet and will find it far, far more difficult to find the resources, support and time needed to persue a degree and a carreer that suits their capabilities. The princess' rant on instagram makes her seem unaware how fortunate she actually has been. Nonetheless it is admirable that the princess decided to develop herself and pursued both a degree and a carreer while she could also play the socialite and do nothing the whole day. It seems that she and her husband were able to form a stable marriage and are doing a great job in raising their children.

i agree marengo. i think this should have been handled by the PR people of the court, rather than by her on instagram. i like tessy a lot, but like you, i get the feel when reading this that she underestimates how lucky she is to have the support of a well connected family in her endeavours as a professional and as a mom.
