The only castle the family still owns is Fischbach where Grand Duke Jean lives. All the other castle were sold. Berg and the palace are owned by the state and official residences of the reigning Grand Duke. So if they did not want to move in with Guillaume's parents or his grandfather, there was no other option.

They think she is charming, in fact.

I hope she gets a chance soon to show whether or not she has mastered Luxembourgish.

Guillaume dated Pia Haraldsen who was a great-step-niece of Queen Sonja. Pia's mother, Janand Jasmin Strømsnes, was married to Sonja's nephew, Karl Otto Haraldsen from the early 1990's to 2005/6. Karl Otto is the son of Sonja's brother, Haakon.

Pia and Guillaume attended Durham University together for their first year of university. Then Pia transferred to University of London's Goldsmiths College, and Guillaume followed by transferring to Brunel University for a year. IMO, Stephanie looks somewhat like Pia. I think Guillaume is shy with women as evidenced by how awkwardly he kissed his bride!

I think the thing about having 100,000s of thousand of people watch you kiss is that you just can't win. Knowing it will be dissected from any angle, you overthink it.
It either ends up looking clumsy and fairly chaste or like you need to get a room. In any case - I could not kiss someone naturally in front of large crowds. I doubt many of us could.

Did we watch the same wedding? Guillaume was all over Stephanie on that Palace balcony...he kissed her six times and there was nothing "awkward" about it either! You can see it on youtube!

Yes, he was not shy to me. If anything I think Stephanie was the shy one. She is the one who was the most awkward. Guillaume seems to be more of an extrovert and that is probably because he is in the public eye all the time.

I don't necessarily believe Guillaume is a true extrovert-that would be his mother-but he is definitely more outgoing than the young woman he married.
