That clip brought a smile to my face! Henri and MT playing together was just adorable.

I believe someone's name is Irene and MT starts around 9:32 but if you start at 8:59 you can hear them discussing the family.

I liked when Henri and Maria-Teresa played piano together, they smiled and looked happy together.

I know you can really tell that they love each other, I loved how Maria-Teresa sang with emotion, I know it was only short but you could tell that she was into it IMO.

Yes, MT is great singer. Pierre Dillenburg said in his commentary that she is best singer in the family.

I really liked when Henri smiled at MT when she missed a note while playing. It was very sweet there is still real affection between them. I love it.

It's difficult to tell if there's any real talent there because both pieces were simple and incomplete. It looked like a bit of fun though. I wonder what brought these two little performances about?

It's nice to see that the grand duchess plays the same guitar as moi

It's a popular instrument in the family. Several other members play it, as well. Guillaume is also a singer.

They showed it while talking about the Euro Vision song contest. If they told why it was originally recorded I missed it. I suspect it was recorded as part of the old Place Royale shows that RTL did.

Hmmm I agree Lighthouse, but didn't it say in her biography that she loved to sing and I may be wrong here but I think I read somewhere that she took singing classes, of course I could be wide off the mark here.

You're probably right. I'm sure if she had lessons her singing is awesome but it was pretty average here.

Not bad though.

yes I agree there wasn't much wow factor, perhaps thats why it was only a short clip, plus she smokes which won't help her voice much. :)

Simon Cowell would probably not like it but never the less it's always lovely to see the Grand Duke & Duchess in a personal way. Maria-Teresa seems to me be a wonderful and beautiful person, and very honest in who she is. She was involved with humanitarian work "pre-Henri" and it isn't something she's given up. That interview she did for RTL on the national day when she got all teary was really beautiful to see

She has an amazingly good voice for a smoker. Actually, I thought that she had a very good soprano tone.

I have never actually saw MT smoke. Has anyone else? I know Henri, Guillaume, Felix, Tessy, and even Sebastien smoke. I have never saw MT, Alexandra or Louis smoking. Though, I'm pretty sure Louis probably does.

no I haven't seen pictures of the grand duchess smoking. But wow, passive smoking is a real possibility.

and I really liked when I sing and it was in Spanish but I would love to hear her speaking in Spanish, say he has a Cuban accent. Has anyone heard to MT speak Spanish?

and I see that many in the family are smokers. Who do not smoke?

It was in a thread on here that said she smoked, Im pretty sure in the thread concerning her recent operation that someone stated she smoked, if you like i can find the thread, Im not sure myself, but it was discussed elsewhere.

Actually, I think it was me who said she smoked in thread about her operation. I'm sure she does - the whole family smokes. I just never saw a picture of it. Maybe I have I just don't remember it.

Ah its ok, I mean I wasn't sure but I remember reading she smoked. I cannot believe that sebastian smokes, the lad isn't even 18 yet, but I understand that smoking is the norm. Does anyone know the legal smoking age over there, ours was 16 i the U.K but is now 18.
