I must say Guilliame is a dark horse isn't he? There has been countless rumours of his dating life and they weren't even close. Three years ago they were reintroduced?!

Either way, he has picked a winner! She seems very composed, lovely and intelligent young lady. Her parents did an excellent job.

Love the way Guillaume is looking at her in some of the pictures: these two are really sweet together and on fast track of becoming my favourite royal couple.
I wouldn t say that Stephanie looks gorgeous... She isn t exactly what i would call a pretty woman. But she sures looks young and fresh, as you say, wich contrast quite nicely with the maturity of her statements. They look really good together and i wish them all the best!

I guess we have to agree to disagree.
Personally, I think Stephanie is one of the most naturally pretty Princesses (to-be) out there. I like her soft, unassuming yet elegant look and can understand what Guillaume sees in her. Completely agree wit you about maturity and the couple looking very good indeed together.

I also think she's a beautiful girl, not a top model or beauty pageant material but her hair, eyes and smile are really nice and Guillaume looks at her in awe

And I don't find him that good looking TBH, the best looking sibling is Felix, hands down

I don't find Stéphanie conventionally pretty; certainly not one of the prettiest young women around, however, from what I've seen of her these past 6 months she possesses an innate sense of regality. By all accounts she appears balanced, assured and enthusiastic. I am in no doubt that Guillaume has picked very very well and is incredibly fortunate to have captured the heart of such a well turned out and genuine woman.

A lovely couple.

Stephanie strikes me as a private person but she's very self-assured and speaks very eloquently
that is certainly my impression. she does by far one of the best engagement interviews out of all the current crown princesses.

maybe not conventionally pretty but she just oozes confidence and that makes her very appealing, i think. her french is impecable, she expresses herself very maturely and she's obviously well-read, so that adds to her charm.

Apparently one of her brothers got a child only a week or so after Countess Alix' death.
Yes, her brother Christian's wife gave birth to a baby boy, Ignace, five days after the Countess was buried.

It's incredible to watch the Grand ducal couple and the Hereditary GD couple walking on the street of Luxembourg without an entourage, and talking to a passerby. (It's on another thread here). Possibly some security was nearby but they were not hemmed in by it, just living normally as we do.

A couple of very worthy and beautiful. Matter very happy. Stephanie is very elegant, noble and gentle lady. I'm sure you will watch a beautiful wedding ceremony. Date squares will be very nice.

Sorry, but what do you mean by date squares? Are they serving them as dessert at the reception? I did not understand a word of the interview except when she said "tres tres" or referred to somebody by name.

Thanks Rayarena...it's good that the wedding is getting at least some coverage in China since that will be the first country that Guillaume and Stephanie will visit together(next month) after their wedding!

I didn't see any photos of it, but Stéphanie is supposed to be wearing her mothers engagement ring already.

Isn't Thomas de Bergeyck related to Stéphanie? I think in her mothers' side...
