So, something was passed especially before the proper authorities to grant Maria Teresa a quick citizenship?

well, i don't think it was like that. when you marry a foreigner, in most of the countries, the person gains the citizenship of the one who is from the country where the couple is living.

That would make sense. Besides how could she have been the Hereditary GDess in Luxembourg but not even a citizen of that country?

I certainly wouldn't understand how she could be Hereditary Princess without citizenship. It makes sense that after the marriage, she would gain citizenship, however wasn't something passed through Parliament before Mary of Denmark's engagement in which she became a citizen before her marriage? I asked if that was the case with Henri and Maria Teresa because their is an engagement period and wondered.

Is is true that some of the Princesses like Maxima still hold citizenship in their native countries? I remember reading that Maxima had dual citizenship, but don't know if it was really true or still the case. Sorry for being OT.

yes, maxima has a dual citizenship. the same, i suppose, as mary donaldson, and maria teresa. gaining a citizenship doesn't mean loosing the other one. they are citizens of argentina, australia and cuba, although they don't reside there, just the same as other people.

Henri and MT seem so open and loving that I don't think that would happen.

Maria Teresa became a Luxembourg citizen when she married Henri in 1981.

While this was possible in the past, for example current Grand Duchess Maria Teresa was also granted citizenship when she married then Crown Prince Henri, this law was abolished in the 2008 reform. From wort.lu, Wort.lu - Stéphanie Luxembourg nationality law stirs debate on naturalisation

It was mentioned that Maria Teresa have or have had Cuban citizenship before her marriage, I wonder if that is true? She was born Cuban and had Cuban citizenship at birth, but she and her family left Cuba in 1957 after the revolution there, and I wonder what happened to those citizens that left Cuba then, did the new government revoke the citizenship of those who left Cuba or not.

I know that Cuban refugees to the U.S. could get an American citizenship in 1966 through the Cuban Refugee Adjustment Act, so it's possible that Maria Teresa and her family became American citizens then.

I've heard that you can not renounce to your country of birth nationality.

I guess you could renounce you're country of birth nationality but whether or not a government would act on revoking you're citizenship is another matter.

You will always "be born" where you were born. However, some nation's require you renounce your citizenship if you want to become a citizen of the new state. Other states are more relaxed about it and some have absolute bonhomie about it and allow dual citizenship with certain countries. Its all about the laws in the country from which you seek citizenship.

In Maxima's case Argentina does not allow you to renounce your Argentinian citizenship. It was a bit of a sore point when she married and acquired Dutch citizenship.
