Do you mean Anvaing Castle? I don't think Stephanie lives there the majority of the time. She has a flat in the de Lannoy mansion in Brussels, which I read the other day has been the family's city residence since the 18th century. They use the castle for more formal and family occasions I suppose.

Her oldest brother Jehan manages Anvaing and the family properties.

I don't think Stephanie will move to Berg full time until after her wedding. I read that she and Guillaume take turns commuting between Luxembourg and Belgium on weekends...she has a suite of rooms at Berg Castle for her personal use, probably likewise for Guillaume at Anvaing.

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.
I got the same vibe as you did after looking at the pictures (though I didn't know that Stephanie's father was not at the funeral). This experience will either break them or make them stronger, and judging by the way Stephanie clung to her fiance, and the way the said fiance was looking at her, I'd say it's very much the former.

I think the gentleman in the photo would be one of Stéphanie's uncles, either maternal or paternal.

I know of the mansion in Brussels and of course the very ancient castle, but there could very well be property in France as well. I am not certain.

Meraude I think you are right...those elderly gentlemen are either Stephanie's maternal uncle(Baron della Faille Levergham) or paternal(Counts de Lannoy)

I suspect that her poor heartbroken father was at home, under a doctor's care.

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.

I really hope Stephanie herself will be strong enough to attend her wedding...I was not prepared for how fragile and completely stricken she looked yesterday.

I would think that she, as well as the rest of her family, are still in shock after the unexpected death of her mother. I hope she will be given time to rest and take it easy in the weeks leading to the wedding, I know it's a short time but I think there are those who can help her with any preparations she needs to take part in. The LGDF seems to have taken her to their hearts and I would think that Maria Teresa will do all she can to help her future daughter-in-law in this difficult time for Stéphanie.

As I believe we all can see she has a strong support group. I am sure it is hard to loose a parent and twenty times worse as you prepare to marry into the public eye as she is in a months time. She will be happy to recall that her Mother saw her happy and about to marry. May God's loving arms bring her Comfort at this time.

Stephanie did look very distraught, and I'd imagine the next month and a half will not be very easy. However, I think the day of the wedding will definitely be a very bittersweet one for everyone. No doubt a bit more so for the Countess, since it is her mother that is not able to be there and watch her get married to her prince (well, in this case Hereditary Grand Duke). I hope she will get plenty of rest and support. She will definitely need it.
