We don't know but probably this year, I think that court must find suitable date and has time to prepare the affair.


Congratulations to the couple . Guillaumne looks so happy at the photos as well Stephanie. Can't wait for press meeting with them and seeing the ring.

Maybe arranged in the sense that both their parents made sure that the kids got to know as many other young nobles as possible. Many noble families still do. If they spent a lot of time with other young aristocrats, there's a good chance (but no guarantee) for real love matches to develop.
It seems to have worked for these two. At least they look blissfully in love on the engagement pics.

The Family of the Count de Lannoy belong to Belgium’s highest Nobility. I am very happy that the future Grand Duchess will be a Belgian such as the late Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte who should be very happy with this engagement.

In one of the engagement photos you can see Stephanie's left hand which has no rings on it but Guillaume is covering her right hand. So I don't know if there is a ring yet, unless in Luxembourg or Belgium they wear it on their right hands and Guillaume is covering her hand for this reason

Thanks for all the information! Based on this, she appears to not speak Luxembourgish. At least she speaks French and German!

Impressive. I think she would know English as well, since it is the most important language in international communication. Ususally noble families deem it important to speek English. Do Belgium schools emphazise the studies of English?

I would assume that she will be able to learn it rather quickly, esp. since she is supposed to be fluent in german (which is quite simular).

Thank you for your confirmation.
With her background she won't have trouble learning Luxembourgish. With her strong interest in languages, I guess that she already has started to study it.
