Congratulations to HGD Guillaume and his Stéphanie, although I'd never heard of Stéphanie before today, they look very happy and that's what counts.

Interview by German tv station ZDF with the Bridal couple.A very self-confident and more then nice Stephanie,she is
of the right material for her future role,absolutely.

I only regret her mother passed away so unexpectedly last month,that is a sad shadow on a otherwise
wonderfull wedding weekend,no doubt.

The Religious service,Holy Mass,will start by observing one minute silence to honour Sophies late mother
Countess Stephanie will also wear her mothers engagement ring,so she will be present,very much so .
Sophie wished to continue with the wedding as planned as she says I believe life continues,dispite
the loss of my beloved mother.She would not have wished anything else but to go ahead as planned.

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.

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 (http://www.noblesseetroyautes.com/2015/12/stephanie-de-luxembourg-recoit-amis-musees-dart-dhistoire/). 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.

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.

Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume's first child arrived yesterday morning (most appropriately on Mother's Day) and is called Charles Jean Philippe Joseph Marie Guillaume. Mother and baby are both fine, so after eight years it really is fantastic news. Cheers, GREENOWL
