The always informed and connected Marianne from the Glittering Royal Events MB, has posted the following at her MB about their wedding anniversaries.

Next month, February 14 (Valentine's Day) it will be 25 years since the Luxembourg Grand Ducal Couple, Henri and Maria Teresa, got married.
Just a few days ago I received a reply from the Press Secretary in Luxembourg about the planning of the upcoming festivities.
The day itself will be celebrated inside the close family circle, so it seems, but the first week-end of July will see plenty of official celebrations!!
The weather certainly will be much better than it can be in mid-February of course
(just like another Royal Silver Couple did in 1962: their wedding day was in January but Queen Juliana & her family celebrated with loads of royals in May of that year)
So, it seems that in July we can have much to look forward to from the family.

Louis' baby will be born then right? I wonder he the baby will be acknowledged in some way at this time? I don't expect that the baby will be on the balcony or anything or paraded about the country, but he or she will be the Grand Ducal couple's first grandchild and as such plays a significant role in the highs and lows of their relationship.

I didn't mean she had problems with Henri (on the contrary, they seemed perfectly amiable), but the issue of Point de Vue (and why wouldn't we believe it) simply suggests that Guillaume was a clear favourite, not least because he made in his life choices she could perfectly agree with.

Quite a few mothers have issues with their daughter-in-laws; I know cases where a perfectly sensible, level-headed women married to real dorks have been considered to be evil b***es by their mother-in-laws, certain that they will ruin poor, dear son's life

My understanding is that her problem was with Maria-Teresa because she was a commoner. To some degree I have read stories but am not really sure of their accuracy, Josephine-Charlotte had issue with the fact that Maria-Teresa was Cuban-born. I have heard she had a rather racist nickname for Maria-Teresa.
JC didn't disapprove of her because she was a commoner. At the time of their engagement, JC supported Henri and MT (grandduchess Charlotte was opposed to the marriage because it was with a commoner). They just didn't like each other as persons, those things happen in all families.

It's true JC did prefer "equal marriages", meaning marrying in the same social circle. Something most mothers wish for their chhildren.

Thanks for the photos. I love Maria-Teresa dress and jewelry, simply, cute, and classic.

I think Josephine-Charlotte and Maria-Teresa had different personalities. That doesn't mean a dislike of each other, but difficulities getting alone. Josephine-Charlotte and Charlotte were royals and expected Henri to marry a fellow royal. When he married Maria-Teresa, she entered into a situation that was uneasy. Maria-Teresa and Henri married the same year that Di and Charles did. It appears Henri's family questioning the marriage stems from experience, duty, tradition, and love. The views of Charlotte and Charlotte reflect their times (consider royal marriages before 1975 vs. after 1976 along with divorces, sandals, and changes in society and the family). I think Josephine-Charlotte and Charlotte wanted "the right one" who loved Henri for Henri, could handle the job of Grand Duchess, represented the family and the country, and would stay married. No one can fault a family's love and concern.

And that is exactly what MT is! :)

She is a very pretty woman. The gold does compliment her well.

Awww...you have to love the third one. I think that all ideas that Henri and MT are unhappy have just been shot down.

I don't know why, but sometimes it is easier for them to do things on different days.
