Oh, shame she didn't make use of her privilege du blanc! i believe it's the first time she hasn't wore white for a pope audience. maybe the reason of her audience was not because of her being the Grand duchess but rather maybe due to her humanitarian commitments and hence she chose a non white outfit to fit with the purpose of the meeting?

I like how she adapts herself to the situation, since the Pope is South American she speaks Spanish with him even though she speaks about six other languages including French, German, Luxembourgish, English, Italian and of course her native tongue Spanish.

Maria Teresa is just amazing. She can indeed adapt herself to any social or diplomatic situation with grace and aplomb.

And I believe the reason she did not arrive in full privilege du blanc is because it was a brief and informal visit.

What is the reason for the Vatican visit? It seems odd that Grand Duchess of Luxembourg would come for a brief chat about her family.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa underwent successful keyhole surgery on her right knee, yesterday September 11.

She will remain in hospital for a few days before being discharged and returning to Berg Castle. No reason for why the surgery was required was released by the Court.

There was, they said it was to treat an injury on her right knee, however, they didn't specify what kind of injury.

I am puzzled by this comment. If Spanish is the native language of each (and so it is), why would she speak to him in any other language?

I'm not suggesting that she should speak to him in another language, what I meant is that she is a perfect polyglot who can adapt her self to the circumstances. Obviously, since the pope is South American, she speaks to him in Spanish and she speaks it wonderfully [by the way], even though she left Cuba when she was only three years old and lived in Switzerland where she spoke French, until she moved to Luxembourg where she learned Luxembourgish and continues to speak French.
