Weʼre raising £12,000 to support Tessy de Nassau’s bicycle ride to benefit Professors Without Borders’ 2019 Summer School Programs
From June 14th to June 15th, 2019 Tessy de Nassau will be participating in Vätternrundan, the largest recreational bicycle ride in the world. Starting and finishing in Motala, Sweden, the course runs 300 kilometres around Lake Vättern. By sponsoring Tessy’s bicycle ride, you will help Professors Without Borders (PROWIBO) improve access to higher education around the world.

Given the lack of full disclosure, reasonable minds can disagree.
The grand-ducal court answered the question in February 2017, stating that the rule about divorced wives governs the titles of Princess Tessy and as such she will lose her titles when she is divorced.

It's Official: No Title for Tessy

The rule governing ex-wives was already included in a grand-ducal decree of September 21, 1995, and was the reason Prince Jean's first wife Hélène Vestur lost her title Countess of Nassau on divorce.

According to the judgment, Princess Tessy informed the court on August 29, 2018 about giving notice. The judgment is dated December 4, 2018.

It did not include any spousal support (only a nominal spousal support order to provide her with the right to apply for spousal support over the next six years as a safety net), but it did order her husband to provide her with £8000 per year in child support.

If the couple is already legally separated, I don't understand why Tessy is still using her royal titles and styles. Coincidentally, I was researching the Nassau Family Pact today for another reason and the text seems to be pretty explicit about ex-wives losing their titles. Am I missing something ?
The couple are neither divorced nor legally separated at the moment. Princess Tessy filed for divorce rather than legal separation, and apparently the decree absolute, the document which would grant the divorce, has not been issued.

The decree absolute will only be granted if one of the spouses applies for it. The petitioner (Princess Tessy) is required to wait six weeks after the decree nisi and the respondent (Prince Louis) is required to wait three months after the six week period. As the decree nisi was already granted on February 17, 2017, both spouses have the right to apply for a decree absolute. However, reading the judgment, apparently no decree absolute was granted. Perhaps they both wish to wait until all issues are settled.

It's either in the above document or another document released, Tessy tried to have the Court rule on the title she can use after divorce, but the judge wrote that in wasn't up to the Court to decide, it's up to the Grand Duke, so she tried to slip that issue in and got shot down. Tessy is also considering going to the Court of Appeals over the judge's decision.
I do hope the children were able to spend the Christmas holidays without tension from either parent. Their well being is the most important factor in it all.

Yes, it was in the judgement in 3 iii) "... this court did not have jurisdiction to decide issues concerning the fate of the wife's Royal titles ..."

I also hope the children are having a good holiday despite their parents' situation.

There does appear to be a post-nuptial agreement, at least in regards to the house? The Judge would only vary the time frame to give notice.
Quote:
90. With respect to the question of a post-nuptial settlement in relation to the former matrimonial home, on behalf of the husband, Mr Ewins did not dispute that the evidence before the court is capable of giving rise to a post nuptial settlement but submits, as does the ADB, that the contents of that settlement must, on the evidence, be limited to a licence to occupy terminable at will or, at most, on reasonable notice.
Quote:
132. [...] I make an order varying the post nuptial settlement to provide the wife and the children with a licence to occupy the former matrimonial home terminable on six months notice [...]
Since Tessy is considering appealing then she definitely isn't filing for decree absolute anytime soon. From https://www.gov.uk/divorce/apply-for-a-decree-absolute:
Quote:
If you want a legally binding arrangement for dividing money and property you must apply to the court for this before you apply for a decree absolute.
If Louis is content with the judgment, can he apply for decree absolute even though Tessy may appeal? It's already wayyy past the 6 weeks + 3 months waiting period for a respondent. I'm guessing he won't as that would make Tessy even more upset.

Except she's not announcing anything, so we have a blank page.

I assume she means paid brand/product "ambassador" roles. She wouldn't be in line for any others, except maybe charity roles, which is also possible

Well, that post on 3rd December wasn't the last, she has posted 16 after that.

She answered to questions again at her Instagram and wrote at one answer "It is difficult at times as a single mum with no support".

Tessy also congratulates her dear friend Lady Kitty

She has no job, so can easily move back to Luxembourg where her parents and other family members live nearby if 'family support' truly would be what she is looking for...

It wouldn't surprise me if Tessy moves back to Luxembourg either permanently or part-time with her sons as she seems to naturally be more fond of Luxembourg than London since it's her homeland. However perhaps Luxembourg also reminds her of the divorce which seems to have hit her hard - and Gabriel and Noah are also at school in the UK.

This just makes me angry. I know a few women who has been single mothers with no support. For real, that is. Worrying about finding a place to live, not knowing if they would be able to provide food and clothing for the kids... She's not one of those women.

I have to say, whilst yes she is technically a single mother, she probably leads a lifestyle many single mothers would be hugely jealous of. She has a house, secured until her youngest finishes university, a well paying job earning £75,000 a year (even she has chosen to give it up) and she has the support of their father who loves his kids and his family who will continue to fund the best education money can buy (at a bording school btw so Tessy gets to be child free in the week to live her life without worrying about childcare) and the best medical and health care and travel costs money can buy.
I’m sure a barely coping single mother on a minimum wage job and barely affording her rent would totally relate to Tessy.

She needs to think before she speaks!

Seems unlikely to me, since the court case revealed that Tessy will have a house at her disposal, worth maximum 1,5 million Pounds, in London, until the children have finished their education.

See ruling 131:
"Finally, as set out above, Mr Leech rightly reminds the court that it has no power to compel the ADB (= Administration des Biens de SAR le Grand-Duc) to enlarge its offer to the wife, which offer involves the purchase of a property in London in the sum of £1.5M with a right to occupy the same until the youngest child finishes his first degree"

It seems like she never does. She seems to have been acting stupdily ever since her split with her husband, prattling endlessly on social media, makng out she's a hard working ordinary woman yet wanting more and more money.. I didn't know much about her before this divorce but everything I have seen in the past year convinces me that she wasn't suitable as the wife of a Prince, even one leading a farily ordinary life...

I agree. I never paid much attention to her before the divorce proceedings began, and at worst, my opinion her was neutral. In a PR sense she has really not done herself much good with the choices she's made in the last year or so. Even worse, I can't help wondering how all this is impacting her children. She seems to not only lack discretion and dignity, but any sense of how she is coming across.

Exactly this! I'm sure that some of Tessy's followers are single mothers who are genuinely struggling financially and who are also completely on their own... I would feel quite upset if I were in their position and then read this post from Tessy. It almost sounds boastful; as if she posted that because she's aware that she is much more well off than a lot of single mothers.
If Tessy thinks she's in a financial struggle and struggle in general; then I wouldn't mind struggling too! I'm not denying that this has been tough for her, but she's really dramatising how the divorce has affected her and what it's left her with. I wonder how Louis feels about seeing all these posts, considering that he seems to be a relatively private person.

Tessy published at her website new photos of her and the boys, taken again by Hana Noguchi.

She writes:
To honour 2018 and its beauty despite the storm my sons and me have chosen a few images from our private album taken by the amazing Hana Noguchi to celebrate the good things of 2018– our little family and the love we share for each other.
I have personally learned a lot about perception vs reality during my divorce and learned that 2018 is a year where sadly still truth and honour are being replaced by perception and favours. It is a year to remind ourselves that there is a lot to read between the lines if one choses too.
The emphasises is made on the word chose which always makes me smile. Some press prefer to sadly write what sells. Truth does not sell, reality does not sell — it is often ugly lies that sell as it only helps the reader to divert away from his or her own misery and fantasize about other peoples made up difficulties. We do not judge you...
