Prince Henri and Gabriella are distantly related, and are both great-grandchildren of Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg and her husband Prince Félix (né Bourbon-Parma).

They announced their engagement after Prince Henry popped the question in October 22, 2017 days before she gave birth to their daughter, Victoria.
