KittyAtlanta, yes we only know what we are told about the economies, not only of Europe but of the USA. We are told it is going to be a bad time. We are told it will be as bad or worse as the crash of 1929. They may be wrong.

Rominet, yes, I hope for a miracle of recovery. If the world were run like Luxembourg or Leichtenstein, we would not be facing the economic hard times which other countries of Europe and America face. That is one reason I got to reading about Luxembourg and Leichtenstein, then got hooked on the Royals. The conservative policies of Luxembourg had it completely solvent last I heard...but haven't heard lately...and that is not true (from what we are told) in most of Europe. I think Finnland is one country solvent, apart from Luxembourg and Leichtenstein. there may be some others but I have not heard.

I knew Guillaume's engagement to Countess Stephanie de Lannoy from Tumblr. I was so happy when I heard that he's getting married Congratulations, Guillaume and Stephanie.

Not much news about the Luxembourg wedding. Very private. Will therefore be a big nice surprise to see the dress and that of her attendants. And which tiara. And which tiara Maria Teresa will wear.

Talking about tiaras, if I remember correctly, Maria Teresa borrowed a tiara from Josephine Charlotte when she married Henri, but I'm sure that the ancient and grand Lannoy family will not have to borrow anything. They probably have their own set of exquisite jewels that Stephanie will likely wear, heirlooms that have been handed down for centuries.

Does Luxembourg put out souveniers like Britain does when there's a royal wedding? The British put out plates with the faces of the royal fiances, etc... But does Luxembourg do the same? I know that Luxembourg puts out stamps and there will probably be a book put out with photographs of the wedding, but can we expect anything else? Does anyone remember if there were souvenirs when Henri married Maria Teresa?

I don't think you'll be able to find souvenirs, if any at all, for the royal wedding.

Thanks for your reply, but I'm pretty sure that they'll put out stamps and probably a book. There was a photography book published on the coronation of Henri and there was a stamp put out when Henri married Maria Teresa, but I wonder what else--if anything-- they might put out?

I presume that you live in Europe? If you see souvenirs of the marriage, please let us know. In the meantime, I am sure that Editions saint-paul that has in the past published photographic biographies of the Grand Ducal couple and of the coronation will publish a photographic book of the marriage! I can't wait!

éditions saint-paul

No doubt the Cour Grand-Ducale will release pictures of the married couple as per standard of all royal court. However, more personal photos of the couple will not be release until later years with milestones anniversary or birthday.

I'll definitely keep my eyes open and post any information about any published book on the marriage if I see one, but you can check yourself on the link that I provided above which I post below again:

éditions saint-paul

By the way, if anybody else sees anything, perhaps from another publishing house, please let us know.

There was a book from Editions Saint Paul after the Mariage of Henri & Maria Teresa.

And there was a book at Editions Luxnews (pictures Raymond Reuter) at the end of 1981, with pictures from H & MT's first (official) year.

So, I tink and hope there will be one this year also.

There was a STAMP to!

I would love if some official wedding souvenir merchandise was released.
Maybe the Grand Duke's / Duchy will display some on its website similar to the way the British Monarchy and Le Palais de Monaco did. ?

I got three lovely items from the Monaco Palace website prior to Albert & Charlene's wedding.

On September 25, 2012 stamps commemorating the marriage of The Hereditary Grand Duke and Countess Stephanie de Lannoy will be issued. The stamp block will feature two photographs of the happy couple from their engagement and their signatures.

It was interesting to see photos of the funeral of Comtesse Alix, which are on another thread. Photos from European news agencies. Stephanie looked beautiful in black even though pale from her bereavement. The man I think is her father looked strong even though 90, so if that is the one shown, I expect he will be able to walk Stephanie down the aisle in October. But so much is going on in the world right now, I would feel better if Stephanie and Guillaume married civilly now and she moved into Berg with him at her side. And her father should move too. For comfort, for love, much needed.

Mariel I don't think that was Count Philippe today. I don't think he was strong enough to attend his wife's funeral.

Guillaume and Stephanie broke my heart today...she looked white as a ghost but so beautiful with that black lace mantilla covering her head and shoulders, clinging to Guillaume for dear life. I wanted to give them both a hug.

If they can get through this sad time, they can get through anything.

Moonmaiden, if the Count is that frail, I hope there are plenty of relatives to help Stephanie. She does have plenty of relatives but who knows where exactly they are.
That is why I thought she might need to move to Luxembourg soon, to have support and love. I would hate to be in that old castle alone with my fiancee somewhere else at this time. It looks like a quaint but desolate place, even the town looks very old and run down.
