As with all royal wives, Stephanie will assume all of her husband's titles and styles; while she will retain her birth style and title of a countess, the style and title of a Royal Highness and Princess of Luxembourg outranks them. It is customary to use the highest available title, so Stephanie will be known as Her Royal Highness The Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.

When Duchess Sophie in Bavaria married Alois, Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein, she retained her title by birth (of a Duchess) but since her title by marriage (Hereditary Princess of Liechtenstein) ranks higher, she is styled and titles as Her Royal Highness The Hereditary Princess of Liechtenstein, Countess of Rietberg.

This is fantastic! After the "year o' the royal wedding" last year, 2012 needs a little sparkly wedding-type flair. I've been having withdrawals.

They are a very cute couple. Can't wait to see more of them together. :)

It would be fair to say that Grand Duke Guillaume's paternal grandmother would have approved of his fiancée.

I am really happy for this couple; they appear to be genuinely in love and comfortable together.
Plus, much as I like royal-commoner unions, it's nice to see a royal-noble union for once.

Why would you be stoned, Fürstin Taxis? For expressing your opinion? That's one thing all of us have right to.
It would be a really boring place if we all thought the same. Personally I find Stephanie quite endearing but that's my subjective opinion.

I'm really shocked! I didn't even realize he was dating! Well I guess he's very private. I wish him happiness.

He is, like rest of his family. Also press in Luxembourg is not very interesting in private life of their princely family, only tabloids are searching for some 'scandals'.

She may be particularly charming; that's something which will come to light in the years to come. Lets hope she has a similar disposition to that of the Duchess of Brabant. Well bred and graceful in manner.

But to gaze upon, I confess that I too don't find her beautiful, nor pretty. But I now look forward to familiarising myself with the future Grand Duchess over the years to come and hope she and her soon to be husband have a very happy and long life together.

I remember there have been some rumours last year already - but it was always a bit silent around his dating activities. AND- I remember that most people said they bet he will marry somebody from a noble family.
So congratulations - may your love last.
