Following the publication of Prince Harry’s tell-all book “Spare,” Prince Félix of Luxembourg has written his own autobiography which shows that the behavior of the Grand Duchy’s royal family can be just as scandalous as their British counterparts.
While “Eratz” has not been officially released, the Wurst got a sneak peek at some of the most shocking revelations from the second son of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.
While attending the local primary school in Lorentzweiler, as a boy, Prince Félix was accused of partying too hard, especially at the annual summer Schoulfest where it is claimed he drank as many as five Coca-Colas in one go. Years later, he looks back on this youthful recklessness.
Combat with older brother
Felix reveals that while his relationship with his elder brother, Prince Guillaume, has been mostly amicable, in the late 90s, the heir to the throne once launched a vicious attack against him, a spinning bird kick that knocked him into the air and nearly 20 meters away where he landed with a comic thud – in the video game “Street Fighter,” anyway.
Late winter, 2004. A carnival party. One very ill-advised costume. When Prince Félix showed up dressed like Shrek, shock and outrage turned into confusion. Nobody could understand. The movie was already, like, three years old. Why didn’t he wear something less dated and more original?
Prince Félix is a known sports enthusiast, playing tennis, football, basketball, and more, which brings us to the topic of races – specifically the ING Marathon. He is certainly a natural long-distance runner, but has he ever completed this race? He tells all.
His ‘first time’
For many young men in Luxembourg, one of the most important steps of becoming a man is the “first time” – the first time being allowed to go to the Schueberfouer at night without parental supervision. Prince Félix recounts every detail, from the bumpy rides he went on all the way to the triumphant climax: having a beer at the Gréngt Spill.
The pressure of the institution. Social events to attend, each requiring different clothes. A household composed of two parents and five active and sometimes sweaty kids. That’s seven people and, at a minimum, seven outfits, including no fewer than 14 socks, that would be worn every day. Who was doing all this dirty laundry, and what was it like for him or her?
