When I lived in Luxembourg ,my old neighbour was private teacher of GD Charlotte's Chlidren.
One day I saw a car stopping before her house and the Grand Duchess Charlotte came out. The driver was her daughter Elisabeth Duchess of Hohenberg.
I will never forget her prestance and her smile. A great Lady !

Didn't they get along?

I've read somewhere that Charlotte was very supportive of Maria-Theresa when she married Henri.?

Absolutely not. The old Grand-Duchess considered the marriage of her grandson Henri a mésalliance and boycotted part of the wedding with a cold as excuse. When you see the partners of her sisters, children and other grandchildren it was an unusual wedding indeed.

She herself married a Prince de Bourbon de Parme. Her siblings married a Duke von Baden, a Fürst zu Schwarzenberg, a Crown Prince of Bavaria, a Prince von Thurn und Taxis, a Prince von Sachsen. Her children married a Princess of Belgium, a Duke von Hohenberg, a Count Henckel von Donnersmarck, a Lensgreve Holstein til Ledreborg, a Prince de Ligne. Only her youngest son married a non noble, Joan Douglas-Dillon, later re-married a Duc de Noailles.

For the future Grand-Duke the expectation was that he would choose a partner befitting his rank and position. It is claimed that when Grand-Duchess Charlotte was besotted with her great grandson Guillaume, that she became closer to María Teresa.

Well then old Charlotte would be pleased with the spouse of said great-grandson. Although a De Lannoy might've been considered a mesalliance before WWI today it's definitely not so.

Yes, and of her children's marriages only Jean's to Josephine-Charlotte of Belgium would have been acceptable before World War I.

A Duke von Hohenberg (morganatic Habsburg), a Count Henckel von Donnersmarck, a Lensgreve Holstein til Ledreborg, a Prince de Ligne, and Miss Joan Douglas Dillon would never have passed muster.

So, stickler that she was for suitable marriage partners, even Charlotte loosened the restrictions somewhat.
