наследная Великая Герцогиня / Naslednaya Velikaya Gertsoginya Stéphanie is probably the highest-ranking royal mastering the Russian language. (Along with Prince Michael of Kent and the Romanovs.) It's a shame none of her husband's Norwegian or Swedish cousins speak their neighbouring country's language.
Березы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

Agreed! I have to admit that I am rather surprised that they have waited so long...

I wonder if we are beginning to see shades of Alexandra Fyodorovna in Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie:
- A long time without any signs of an heir. (A boy in AF's case, any child will do for HGDS.)
- Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume does not only look a bit like NII, but also appears more vivacious and youthful than his bride, whose reserve can be interpreted as pride.
- Extremely high-born, yet shy and retiring, compared to the elegant and vivacious lower-born female royals in her family and in the media.
- Of a somewhat introspective disposition.
- No interest in fashion. See this interesting thread. In one of the comments it's alleged that before her marriage she always dressed very casually and carelessly, in the "just back from Katmandu" style.

Too far fetched.They might not be the most vibrant of couples,but the insinuations are far off.

Vuillard only looks a bit like Nicholas because of the beard.

As for children, they have no need to hurry.

William and Kate had been married over three years before Prince George arrived.
