Great post and I agree that it nice that the couple had time and privacy to get to know each other.

I see the wedding is set for Oct.20th. That is a Saturday. Is it noral for royal weddings to be on Saturdays or is that only something smaller countries with a monarchy do?

If I remember correctly the wedding of the current Grand Ducal couple Maria-Teresa and Henri took place on Saturday Feb14, 1981.

And the recent Swedish and Monagasque Royal weddings took place on Saturdays as well(in Albert of Monaco's case the civil ceremony was on the Friday evening preceding Saturday's Nuptial Mass)

I think it's mainly Britain that celebrates it's Royal weddings on weekdays.

The other recent royal Wedding which was on a weekday was that of Frederik and Mary in 2004 which took place on a Friday but all the other danish royal Weddings took place on Saturdays.

Oh my - how cute is this! Those eyes! Too cute! LINK: http://tinyurl.com/6tyzafn

Then she grew a bit. LINK: http://tinyurl.com/87dmkww

And became a lovely young lady. LINK: http://tinyurl.com/6v3t8xp

Then a university student. LINK: http://tinyurl.com/7aswbfv

And voila! a bride-to-be! Link: http://tinyurl.com/89q2ubg

P.S. Isn't it odd, though, that her nose in #3 does not look like the nose in #5. How strange is that?

Yes. Someone has pointed out that one of her "sides" is much better than the other. The difference is not so significant for most, but for her it may be. I think that she looks much better when she is photographed from the left side than from the right or the front. In any case, she is lovely... and so very Belgian in her looks and demeanor, especially as a child!

Good that she is completely healthy, giving her parents' age when she appeared...

I do wish she would dress a bit more youthful. You can still be professional and conservative without looking like you're a grandmother- I think the Duchess of Cambridge proves that!

Good question.
If they don't dress their age they'll be accused of wanting to be younger!

Poor wording choice on my part, I'll admit it. But I maintain that her clothing choices could be improved. She's got a fabulous figure- show it off! She could wear pretty much anything; why not chose something a bit more fitted or with a more flattering cut?

Perhaps she is just conservative and more modest than you are used to, or perhaps she just it not used to dressing to please the public as opposed to pleasing herself.
