That´s a big suprise. I did not expected it, despite the fact I knew there is something big happening in Luxembourg for few weeks. Well congratulation to the couple. Hope they will live hapily ever after.

Wow! I've heard many rumors, but I'm still surprised.

Congratulations to them!

Congratulations to the couple and their relatives! hardly surprising as the HGD commented on a relationship not too long ago, but good news nontheless. I expect that a LOT of royals will attend this wedding, both reiging and esp. non-reigning.

To DukeofMarmalade: the Belgian nobility seems somewhat exclusive still, I would say around 80% still marries their fellow nobles, just take a look in Stephanie's family tree for example: Lannoy (though her own elder siblings seem to be the exceptions to the rule).

right, us here at TRF! This will be the wedding of the year .
The Luxembourgs have been invited to all mayor royal weddings. Now we can expect the other royals to flood into little Luxembourg.

I thought the same thing Biri. And the 18-year age difference between her and her eldest sibling! Her brother Jehan is closer in age to her fiance's parents

Congrats to them, seems to be a good match. It amazes me how quiet this whole thing was kept. Were there any pictures of them together at all?

She was probably "unplanned"; Isabelle (second youngest) is eight years older than she, her mamma was already 43 while having her...and this big age difference between her parents (21 years).

In fact her father is only 19 months younger than her future grandfather-in-law.

It seems he is the only heir to marry from just the right lineage, if his parents weren't a love story themselves I would think it was a tad arranged...On another note, congrats to the couple, has anyone seen a ring?

Beautiful photos of the happy couple! Guillaume looks so handsome and youthful, and I hope they have a long and happy marriage like his parents. When will we find out the wedding date? Apologies if this has been announced already in the press conference as I havent seen it :)
