She probably got the photoshoot for free if she promoted the studio and photographer. She isn't stupid, every brand she mentions she gets paid for

Prince Louis, Tessy and Family, News & Events, Part 2 (April 2017 - present)

And this is the exact reason why I think Tessy's posts are more intrusive in comparison to other royals. Most other royals just post portraits or casual shots of their children; whereas this video, unless Gabriel gave Tessy his permission, seems a little on the personal side (and whilst Tessy is no longer a member of the GDF, she is still a public figure through her charity work and is still associated with the GDF). And reading the comments on the post; I wouldn't feel comfortable if I were Tessy reading that a grown woman has a crush on my 12 year old son... (I'm sure the comment was meant in a nice way, but still.)

Very much agree. Other royals share photos of their kids because they know it's expected, so they have to balance it out between sharing and privacy. Tessy would have been in an ideal situation to raise her kids in complete privacy if she'd wanted to because her kids are not in the line of succession, but she seems to need a lot of validation and to constantly remind people she is the mother of two princes. I wonder how Prince Louis feels about this. With their background and profiles, they'd be easy targets for opportunists.

(OT but I've always admired Hollywood celebrities who manage to keep their kids out of the limelight. I also have colleagues who have express instructions not to post photos of their kids on social media, simply because they think it should be the child's decision in the future if he/she want his/her face to be on the internet or not.)

Dr. Amanda Wong-Powell, founder and Managing director of W One Knightsbridge Aesthetic & Cosmetic Clinic, posted this to her Instagram yesterday.

W One Knightsbridge calls Tessy as their patron. The Clinic supports Tessy's Professors Without Borders.

Is it not somewhat at odds for a cosmetic clinic to be supporting a charity advocating education, inspiration and empowerment of women and girls?

Here come be empowered, don't let anyone tell you you're a lesser being just for being a girl....oh and get free botox on your next visit ....huh

These are my sentiments exactly. I can imagine that most other royals in this situation would try to remain as private citizens, showing up only at events such as their royal children's birthdays and other events relating to their children. I've never seen "previous princesses" such as Countess Alexandra of Frederiksborg appear in the limelight as much as Tessy. Whilst it is the individual's wish as to whether or not they want to carry on with public life, I agree that Tessy does seem to want to remind her Instagram followers and others of her associations with the GDF and that doesn't set off a very good image to me. I used to like Tessy but since the divorce my feelings are changing somewhat, and it's a shame because she does admirable charity work but these kind of things throw me off.

Not sure why this thread is called, Prince Louis, Tessy and family as the only thing I ever see is what Tessy is doing. Just saying.

Exactly, Tessy should be a little more circumspect or those that have Instagram can keep the posts from Tessy to themselves.

I wonder whether Noah appreciates it that his mom mentioned that he doesn't like others to cut his food. Why would anyone like to do that at his age?

And Gabriel cares about food insecurities? What would that mean? Is that a world problem thst he focuses on?

And referring to your teenagers as 'babies' is something I truly don't get...

This is the same question that I keep on asking myself, which makes me start to think that Noah and Gabriel do not have consent on what Tessy posts on her Instagram in regards to them, as which teenage boy would be really happy with their mother saying that they still like bedtime stories and only want her to cut their food? I'd be highly embarrassed if I were Noah - his classmates could easily see the posts if they search for his mother on Instagram and could be negative about it towards him. I just hope that the boys don't mind Tessy posting these sort of posts.

The reference about Noah was "who doesn’t like people to cut the food on his plate."

So, my interpretation was that he wants to do it himself. That seems only logical given his age.

Ah OK, thanks for clearing that up. That would make much more sense (but not the comment itself - as you said it seems normal to do that at Noah’s age so I don’t understand why it’s a special characteristic of him). I was tired so my eyes must have been playing tricks on me.

I find most of her posts cringe-worthy with way too much oversharing, especially of information about her boys.

It does sound cringe worthy... I really would lik to like Tessy, as it seemed wonderful that she had studied and was launched on a worthwhile career, but she seems to be so insistent on putting herself forward in public, with pics of herself and anecdotes about her children....

I don't understand why the HRH the Grand Duke of Luxembourg did not ask her to stop posting pictures of his Grand Children , Princes of Luxembourg.

Aren't they still going through the divorce in the courts? Louis' lawyers could well have asked for her to stop posting
