Prince Louis of Luxembourg, 35, and Scarlett-Lauren Sirgue, 30, announced they would call off their wedding after concluding they had different life goals. The couple, who had been together for four years, said their romantic relationship would come to an end in an interview with French magazine Point de Vue.
Louis, who is the third son of Grand Duke Henri, 66, and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, 65, said: “We have been in love with each other for the past four years.
“We always have tried to be completely honest with each other.
“Even when this honesty hurts us like today, we are more than ever convinced it is crucial.”
Scarlett-Lauren added: “Thinking about things a lot and getting to the bottom of it, we eventually admitted that as a family, as parents, our visions are too divergent.
“Our ambitions in life are too different.”
The couple also said they would remain friends and added they still have a lot of love for each other and each other’s families.

In an official statement, they said: “We have decided not to pursue our romantic relationship, while remaining deeply bound by friendship and tenderness.
“It is a decision we have made together upon serious reflection.”
Louis and Scarlett-Lauren revealed they were engaged in April 2021.
The Prince popped the question during a road trip between Lourdes and Biarritz in the south west of France.
However, Louis had to ask Scarlett-Lauren twice.
He explained at the time: “We went through a village with an absolutely incredible view over the Pyrenees.
“There was a small church standing alone.”
Louis added: “I remember the sunset, it was very beautiful. We went into the church and I got down on one knee.
“I told Scarlett: ‘Don’t be scared!’ I asked her… But I actually had to ask twice!
“In the emotion of the moment, she forgot to say ‘yes’. I had to ask her hand in marriage a second time to get the – yes!”
Scarlett-Lauren is the youngest child of lawyers Pierre Sigrue and Scarlett Sigrue.
Prince Louis was married to Tessy Antony, 36, until the couple finalised their divorce in 2019.
Louis shares two sons with Tessy.

Tessy has previously spoken about how royal life took its toll on her and her family.
She said: “My little cousin needed to change schools twice.
“My twin brother was incredibly bullied at work – he still is today.
“My sister, my parents suffered, my oldest brother doesn’t talk to me anymore because of that, because it was too much for him to handle.
“That was when I married in, and when I got divorced, oh my gosh the same.”
But their marriage also had an impact on Louis.
The Prince renounced his succession rights and those of his children following his marriage to Tessy in 2006.
