The article states a Prince...looking at the map most interested. Not so far away is Pont Sante-Marie - Point Saint Marie...alao La Chapelle Sant-Luc - The Chapel of Saint Luke. (The Book of Luke is found in the Holy Scriptures and identifies the bloodline of Jesus Christ, so in this there is a connection.
 
To learn more because this is reported in the news  today...

In 1285, when  Philip the Fair united Champagne to the royal domain the town kept a number of its traditional privileges. John the Fearless Duke of Burgundy and ally of the English, aimed in 1417 at making Troyes the capital of France, and he came to an understanding with Isabeau of Bavaria wife of Charles Vi of France that a court, council, and parlement with comptroller's offices should be established at Troyes. It was at Troyes, then in the hands of the Burgundians, that on 21 May 1420, the Treaty of Troyes was signed by which Henry V of England was betrothed to Catherine, daughter of Charles VI, and by terms of which he was to succeed Charles, to the detriment of the Dauphin. The high-water mark of Plantagenet hegemony in France was reversed when the Dauphin, afterwards Charles VII and Joan of Arc recovered the town of Troyes in 1429
 
With the Channel Tunnel built to connect England and France with the rest of Europe this was surely the intention to connect lands together...As with the Queen's connection to France, Elizabeth II is not only Duke of Lancaster, the House of Lancaster is of the Plantagenet bloodline. Elizabeth II holds the title Duke of Normandy. While it is said she is from and Illegitimate bloodline and not eligible for the throne, she was crowned nevertheless and the Plantagenet/House of Lancaster has been maintained.
