Born at Paris on 6 December 1999, Princess Louise Marie Isabelle d'OrlĂ©ans is the eldest daughter of Prince Charles-Louis, Duke of Chartres, and his wife Princess IlĂ©ana (nĂ©e Manos; a cousin of Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia). Louise has an older brother, Prince Philippe (b.1998), and three younger siblings: Princess HĂ©lĂšne (b.2001), Prince Constantin (b.2003), and Princess Isabelle (b.2005). Princess Louise d'OrlĂ©ans is the granddaughter of Prince Jacques, Duke of OrlĂ©ans, and his wife Princess Gersende (nĂ©e de Sabran-PontevĂšs); therefore, Louise is the great-granddaughter of the late Prince Henri, Count of Paris, and his wife Princess Isabelle (nĂ©e OrlĂ©ans e Bragança), as well as of Foulques de Sabran-PontevĂšs, Duc de Sabran, and his wife Roselyne (nĂ©e Manca-Amat de Vallombrosa).

Princess Louise d'OrlĂ©ans recently gave an interview to journalist ChloĂ© Friedmann of Madame Figaro. In it, she gave a lot of insight into her life and her goals and hopes for the future. Louise is a third-year student focusing on agricultural engineering at a university in Lille (l’École d’ingĂ©nieur agroalimentaire). Like many of her relatives, she enjoys painting and expressing herself artistically. Louise has traveled extensively in South America, and she would love to live in either Argentina or Brazil one day. The princess confides that she is a great admirer of Queen Elizabeth II, and that she also likes watching the Netflix series, The Crown. 


Louise d'OrlĂ©ans will be one of the participants at the upcoming Bal des DĂ©butantes held in Paris on 30 November. She will be wearing a gown designed by Giambattista Valli. Princess Louise hopes that her attendance at the ball will help to raise funds for two charities, Seleni and Enfants d'Asie, which Louise and her parents both support.
