The Ceremony took place at Hylands Palace as a civil ceremony in June 2012 and have been married happily for nearly three years. In 2013 the Duchess gave birth to a son, Prince alex of Bourbon and in 2014 gave birth to the Princess Royale.
His son's Sucsession
In August 2012, the Duke's son created the Micronation called 'The Kingdom of France, and made himself King. As he done this it excluded the duke from the line of succession. However he still caries out many official and important duties, for example signing the unclassified state papers and attends every state occasion.
