Alex Carruthers comments on Princess Tessy of Luxembourg’s divorce in the i paper

Home > NEWS > 18 Oct 2017

London’s status as the divorce centre of the world has been confirmed by a member of the Luxembourg royal family choosing the city for a ruling on the break-up of her marriage.

Prince Louis separated from Princess Tessy in 2016 after ten years of marriage, and the princess has asked a High Court judge to decide on how their assets should be split.

Alex Carruthers said that the princess made a wise decision in choosing London for the ruling:

“Princess Tessy’s decision to file for divorce in London is a sensible one, as the city, in general, is one of the best jurisdictions in the world for the economically weaker party,” he said.

“It is for this reason that London has earned its title as ‘the divorce capital of the world’.”
