What!!?? Maria Teresa has stated in several interviews that when Henri attended the University of Geneva, he lived with a family named Sanz de Acedo. They were good friends with both Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte and Maria Teresa's parents.
Their son, Javier, knew that Maria Teresa would be attending the same university and asked her if she would show Henri around. Maria Teresa knew Henri was a Luxembourg prince before she met him. (BTW, Javier Sanz is Prince Louis Xavier's godfather.)
