Last Thursday, August 3, the third child of the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg celebrated his 37th birthday. He is fluent in Luxembourgish, French, English and German, speaks Spanish very well and is also involved in various humanitarian missions around the world. Here is his short biography.
Prince Louis has three brothers and one sister: Princes Guillaume, Félix and Sébastien and Princess Alexandra. His Royal Highness is also the father of two sons: Princes Gabriel (2006) and Noah (2007).
Prince Louis was educated in Lorentzweiler, then at the American School of Luxembourg. He continued his academic journey in Switzerland at the Collège Alpin Beau Soleil, where he graduated in 2005. During his school breaks, Louis taught English and mathematics to children from disadvantaged backgrounds and worked with the Red Cross in Geneva.
In 2008, Prince Louis studied at Miami University Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg and then went to the United States for two years to study aeronautics. He obtained his private pilot's license in 2011.
Prince Louis is always seeking knowledge. He has a degree in Psychosocial Studies, has studied at the European Landowners' Organization, and has also trained with dyslexia expert Béatrice Sauvageot. In 2016, the Prince himself admitted that he suffers from this disorder and wants to support those who need help.
Prince Louis travels a lot. However, he returns to his family in the Grand Duchy whenever the opportunity allows. The prince attends all official events, accompanies the royal couple on religious occasions and, of course, spends National Day, one of Luxembourg's most important holidays, at home.
Sport is an important part of everyone's life, the Prince believes. Physical exercise fosters a sense of fairness and equality, perseverance, and respect. For this reason, Prince Louis is a patron of several organizations: the Luxembourg Table Tennis Federation, the Martial Arts Federation, and the Luxembourg Aeronautical Federation.
He also regularly participates in various competitions, such as the European Table Tennis Championship, Judo competitions, and the Prince Louis Karate Cup. The royal's favorite sports are downhill skiing and table tennis. And of course, Prince Louis loves to be a pilot.
He tries to spend his free time with his sons. The royal family often goes on picnics and hikes, and an avid sportsman, Prince Louis teaches his children to ski.
