I am looking forward to seeing the photos from her visit. I am glad to see MT headed to Africa, and I have no doubt that she will most likely be affected by what she sees when she meets the orphans. She seems like a very caring and compassionate person.

Entry from the blog about the visit. Monarchie.lu has a whole gallery from this visit and the Grand Duchess really seems to enjoy this kind of work, she seems to be such a lively person - I love this photo, it was shame it was too big to work as the one in the blog entry.

Lovely photos! The Grand Duchess looks like she is having a wonderful time. She has a very warm quality about her that shows when she is meeting new people.

It looks like Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa seemed to enjoy her visit to Africa and she also always seemed to be a caring and kind person. Thank you for posting the pictures, everyone.

There is a video of MT giving a speech in Africa on the official website. It is in English!

She speaks excellent English! I think she sounds almost American with a little accent that is hardly noticeable.

I saw her visit on Place Royale and was deeply impressed how she was doing so well.
You could see that she was so impressed by their illness , also by young prisoners.
This Grand Duchess is a great ans warmful lady.
She spoke french and english fluently.

The Grand Duchess addressed an audience at the Lycee Aline de Luxembourg Mayrisch, where she talked about her trip to Burundi last month.
