His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Luxembourg, born on 3 August 1986, will celebrate his 34th birthday on Monday.

The third child of Their Royal Highnesses the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, Prince Louis has two sons from his previous marriage with Tessy Antony, Prince Gabriel Michael Louis Ronny, born in Geneva on 12 March 2006, and Prince Noah Etienne Guillaume Gabriel Matthias Xavier, born in Luxembourg on 21 September 2007.

After completing his primary education at the Ecole de Lorentzweiler, Prince Louis began his secondary education at the American School of Luxembourg. He then went to the Collège Beau Soleil in Switzerland, where he continued his education and obtained a secondary school diploma in 2005.

During his studies in Switzerland, Prince Louis developed a strong interest in social and humanitarian work and he participated in missions in Mumbai, India, led by a NGO working with his school. It is in this setting that he taught English to children living in poorest neighbourhoods as well as street children. When he returned to Europe, Prince Louis continued what is his calling and notably completed a year-long internship with the Red Cross in Geneva. He also worked with groups of children and helped seniors during his school breaks.

During his two-year stay in the United States, Prince Louis underwent training in Aeronautics and Aeronautical Management and he earned a private pilot certificate. He then decided to go to the United Kingdom.

In May 2014, Prince Louis graduated from Richmond, the American International University in London, where he obtained a BA in Communication. He also holds a master in Psychosocial Studies from Birkbeck University in London. 

Currently Prince Louis lives in Paris and works as a directional consultant at Laurent Meeschaert Conseil. He is helping people learn to know themselves, find their strengths and weaknesses, learn how and where to make best use of these strengths and weaknesses and help in the management of internal and external conflicts. He plans to offer these consulting services to companies and individuals alike.
