i wonder which prince sebastien will look like as he gets older? felix and louis look a lot alike, except for coloring differences. guillaume doesn't have a twin, well at least not yet anyway.

I think Sebastian looks more like Louis...all the children look alot similar :) but Louis and Sebastian seem to have inherited the fairer hair coloring...

Louis and Sebastien look alike. Guillaume and Felix used to look alot alike. Alex, well, I don't want to compare her to boys. I think that is kind of mean.

Since your from the US and I'm sure you'll understand this, I'd say she is about 5'5".

Yeah, I would say that's about right. She doesn't look that tall, but certainly not short. 5'5'' is still taller than me. :(

i don't think she's 5'5. she looks to be more around 5'2, 5'3ish. she is petite and petite ppl are ppl that are normally shorter than 5'3. my aunt and grandmother are petite and they both look to share the same height as mt.

Yes, she has never appeared very tall (to me at least) . I'd say 5'2/5'3 - that's about my height. In cm slightly over 160 cm, I think. Hurrah for short people!!!

average height for women in the US is between 5'4 and 5'5. i'm 5'7 and i'm significantly taller than my gran and aunt. i think their height adds to their cuteness factors.

i remember seeing a pic- a WHILE ago- of henri and prince charles standing next to each other. if i recall correctly, they were around the same height. prince charles is 5'10 so i suppose that makes henri the same height, give or take a couple of inches. mt's significantly shorter than henri, so i'd put her probably around 5'2/5'3ish. you're right hillary_nugent, her weight does make her look shorter, but she's always looked short to me, even when she was thinner. btw, height is based on genetics, just like everything else is. my height is average on my dad's side and i'm taller than my mom and her siblings, with the exception of her older brother. both of my grandmothers are short- my dad's mom is 5'1 and my mom's mom is 5'3. some of my cousins inherited the short genes, while the rest are average height.

5'10 is above average for most ppl and is considered tall. 2.54cm = 1in. that's the conversion factor you need.

My Dad and two of his brothers are 6'4 but their Mum is under 5' - needless to say, I did not inherit my Dad's height. I'll probably be as short as my Grandmama when I'm her age. Oh, Lord help me! Still, genetics is an interesting thing - with the Grand Ducal family Felix seems the tallest of the lot by a fair bit. I wonder who Alexandra will take after - I think she will be only slightly taller than MT.

Well, Hillary, you're about an inch taller than me. Am I the shortest contributer to this particular forum? :( Boohoohoo! With my dad, I'm used to his tallness. :) I only notice it when we're out where there are other people; they suddenly look really short when my lumbering dinosaur of a father walks past them. Anyhoo, my prediction for the height of the princes/s is: Guillaume 5'7, Felix 6', Louis 5'10 and Alexandra and Sebastien small, wee cutie-pie size

guillaume's probably between 5'6 and 5'8ish, felix's probably between 5'11 and 6'1 and louis's probably betwwen 5'10 and 6'. either way, they're all hot.

So anyway, back to MT and Henri. I saw a photo which appears to be their Chirstmas photo, but due to the fact that I'm technologically challenged, I'm unable to post it. I do believe it was in a yahoo group by the name of guillaumehereditaryofluxembourg.

If you can post the exact address here, then I can try and get the photo and post it here for you. :) Was it Christmas this year, do you think?

I don't think this photo was posted.

On Tuesday 19 October, (2004) Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxemburg was appointed Honorary Hans Christian Andersen Ambassador by HRH Princess Benedikte of Denmark.
HRH Grand Duchess of Luxemburg Maria Teresa is the first royal Hans Christian Andersen Ambassador to be appointed among a wide range of prominent Hans Christian Andersen Ambassadors the world over.
The Grand Duchess, who is the mother of five, has for years been committed to children's rights. She has since 1997 been UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the education of girls and women.
