Crown Princess Louise of Saxony has now lost all of her marital titles and prerogatives following her elopement with Monsieur Giron. Her father-in-law, the King of Saxony, issued a decree that was gazetted today in Dresden. Louise had already renounced her titles on January 9. This decree makes the renouncement official. No new titles for Louise were announced. Earlier, the Austrian emperor stripped her of archducal title and prerogatives as a member of the Imperial House of Austria.
