I vaguely remember hearing it was a "set up" and that she knew someone who introduced her to him. However, I think it's likely she had no idea who he was and that she did cry when she found out, thinking he was just trifling with her. Either way, it's really romantic.

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.)
