with everything that's been happening to them over this year, i doubt they'd be giddy at all. perhaps they feel that they have very little to celebrate, especially considering the fact that they're gonna be grandparents next year by their 19 yr old son, a fact that'd definately have my parental units down in the dumps. hopefully we'll see them smiling again, and soon.

There are some old, old pictures in this week's Semana magazine, which features Louis's baby in three pages. The article is not much, but the sheer cultural value I'll try to scan the pics of Henri and M-T and send them somewhere. Boy, did they know in the 1980s how to dress :)

I totally agree. I like that outfit better than the black dress with the white trim she wore a little while back. It's much more her style.

She looks trim in the black with the fur trim. I think she is a very attractive woman (and nice to see a royal who isn't anorexic-looking or built like a model).

Shes a Latina of coarse shes gonna have curves. lol. Forgive my stereotyping if I offend anyone. But she is a very attractive royal for her age. I like that dress too, it is very elegant.

Okay, here are the pictures. The wedding pic you might have have seen; the big one has probably been taken before their engagement as M-T has no ring. For the hat picture - it was amazing how, in the early 1980s, even very young women were dressed like their grandmothers (just think of Diana). I'm old enough to remember Raisa Gorbachova, and she wore outfits like that, pre her western makeover... :( It's amazing how Henri has always looked exactly the same, the hair, the clothes, the smile...

Of the baby in the last picture, I read an article about Louis somewhere, and it said he has always been a kind of clown in the family, and very much a clotheshorse, a dandy. The same article told that Tessy's dad is a socialist and apparently against the monarchy. And that M-T is 56 years old...

MT is only 49! Maybe they made some mistakes. But I did read in an interview a while back that MT called Louis the clown of the family, but a dandy?

yeah, i remember the 80's, scary times for fashion. i think mt still looks the same, except for a couple of small changes, a little weight-gain and her hair coloring. i've never heard of louis being a dandy or a clothes horse, but that was said of felix. and that bit about mt being 56 yrs old, lol. i hope they get some better sources, especially concerning their ages. poor mt, if the same was said about my mom, the adding of years instead of the taking away of,she'd blow a gasket, hehe.
