Princess Alexandra turns thirty years old today! Sadly, no new birthday portrait has been published yet.  Sad

While she was studying at Franciscan University of Steubenville, there was a video going around that her friends organized for her 20th birthday.  It included snippets of well wishes from both university friends and family members.  (I have not seen it for many years.) You could tell from the video that Alexandra is well loved.  Apparently, in the family she is known as "Yaya" which is what her mother called her, as well as Prince Louis, Tessy and their young children. Her father addressed her as "Alexandra," while her friends called her "Alex."

Alexandra was born on February 16. 1991, two days after her parents' 10th wedding anniversary. Sebastien was born just 16 months later on April 16, 1992, his father, Grand Duke Henri's 37th birthday. MT has said that she gave Henri the most beautiful birthday gift that day. (Interesting that Alex and Seb were both born on the 16th of the month; Felix and Louis were born on the 3rd of their birthday months.)

From their 40th wedding anniversary interview in Paris Match this week, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa describes her children's careers:
MT de L: "I am a proud mother of her children. Our concern being that they can live their passions, we have never exerted pressure to push them to make brilliant careers. Today, everyone blossoms harmoniously in the area they love: our daughter Alexandra is in humanitarian and social work, Sébastien works in the development of ecological agriculture, Félix is ​​an entrepreneur, especially in wine, and Louis is a coach and mediator."



I'm especially interested to hear that Louis is employed as a "mediator".   I wonder if his GF helped him get that gig, as she is a lawyer, and mediation services can be a big deal during legal proceedings.   But usually the preferred choice of a mediator in a legal proceeding has a legal background, i.e., is a retired judge or lawyer.   Maybe he only mediates pre-litigation matters.         

I would like to see more of Alexandra but I suppose she's got a right to live her life more or less as a private person.   She's not the direct heir, after all.  My impression however is that her light has not been allowed to shine much, what with MT in control.

Yesss, even though  I don't understand her words. Does she mention her mama and says merci... several times? She seems to be a bit nervous, moving her seat left and right.  Go and get involved, Alexandra!

Well merci is thankyou in French so perhaps she was responding to comments. But if she referred to her mother more often then not a good look ... unless all the questions were about MT ... in any event she should have her own life away from the family

As far as I understood, she said that her mother was patron of this charity before, she seems to have inherited it. The thanks were for the people who donated money to the cancer charity and everyone involved in fight against cancer.

She was a bit nervous, but at least she didn't read her message from a sheet of paper, unlike another Lux princess last autumn.

I think they just had to fill an  article about some royals . Nobody has heard any news about Sebastian nor Alexandra in the last few years. Even on the GD homepage only the last achievements are mentioned, and that is some time ago. Sebastian worked a little with a forestry project in Germany, but even that is about 2 years ago.
I know from some Lux papers that they also are puzzled about any news about those two and especially about Alexandra there is much speculation going on.

Besides, he is not attractive IMO.

Frankly no one on that list floats my boat.  Either in looks or accomplishments or both they're lacking, IMO.

Is this the kind of list that you can subtly pay to get on to elevate your profile, kind of like when celebrities call BackGrid to take paparazzi shots of themselves?  Maybe MT pulled some strings or greased some palms to get him on there to try to catch the eye of some wealthy potential spouses.

He went to Sandhurst and is in the Irish Guards. And he's a prince. I mean Tatler is about society and money. Looks, talent and intelligence don't figure in that!

Clearly as his looks have faded... that university in the US is not Ivy League... if he got to Sandhurst on merit then fine but otherwise he is trading on his name and most people will have no idea who he is.... same as Louis

That college he went to isn't even a four-year school.

According to their website, "Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio is a “faithfully Catholic university” that offers associate, bachelor, and master degrees (on campus and online)." Most of their programs are for four-year degrees.  However, Prince Sébastien, himself, is said to have received an associate degree in International Business, Marketing and Communications.

I have always thought that this college was a strange choice for Alexandra and Sébastien.

They are adults now, not needed for succession, it would be nice if they contributed anything useful at all, e.g. work for example?
