Where are Stephanie's parents? When Maria Teresa was engaged to Henri, there were official pictures of both sets of parents together. Now I don't see any pictures of Stephanie's parents, unless I've missed them, but I only see pictures of Stephanie with the Grand Duke and Duchess.

I think that her parents will be at 15:30.

It was a reception during which the future Hereditary Grand Duchess was introduced to the highest political, social and religious dignitaries of her new home country.

This afternoon a photosession will be held at Berg castle where members of both the grand ducal and the family of the bride-to-be will be present.

The ring is just a bit too 'bling' for me. I could see it on the finger of a Hollywood actress.

Congratulations to the happy couple. While Stephanie is not a conventional beauty, she has the breeding, illustrious background and education to bring a variety of assets into her marriage and the royal family. She seems an engaging and personable young lady, important qualities to have. Guillaume has made a wise choice and I really look forward to their wedding.

She may not be today's ideal of "beautiful" but she has a lovely smile!

May they have a long and happy life together.

As Stéphanie's father is 90 years old I don't think they want to tire him too much. There are photos of the families here: RTL.lu - Lifestyle Fotoen

TBH, I don't see what makes her look so unappealing that we need to comment about it at length. She isn't a Grace Kelly, but very few people are. She seems pleasant and indeed has a very nice smile.

In an interview on VTM Stephanie's father says: I am happy with it, and so are they in Luxembourg so that is perfect'. He hopes that: 'They will continue to appreciate each other as they do now, spontanious and without a fuss. But that is not the style of Guillaume (marengo: the fuss).
