Quite a while now....she was trying to gain the approval of her mother-in-law, who was never that fond of her.

Her Royal Highness Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg



Her Royal Highness Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg has been a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador since 1997 with a special interest in micro-credit grants and the education of girls and women the world over.

She has relentlessly fostered efforts contributing to their empowerment and helping them to defend their rights. In this way, Her Royal Highness lends her support to projects such as micro-credit grants for the improvement of the living conditions of girls, women and their families.

She has visited numerous UNESCO project sites in Nepal, Mali, Bangladesh, Thailand and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Being herself a mother of five, she is particularly concerned about children’s rights and development.

She is also actively involved in helping street children and in speaking out against juvenile prostitution.

Her Royal Highness Grand Duchess Maria Teresa contributed to the UNESCO project, Breaking the Poverty Cycle of Women: Empowering Adolescents Girls to Become Agents of Social Transformation, which benefits adolescent girls in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Pakistan and offers a broad-based capacity-building programme composed of literacy, life skills, science education as well as vocational training with access to ICTs.

As Honorary President, she gave a speech at the event to commemorate the struggle of the African continent against HIV/AIDS, which took place at UNESCO Headquarters in November 2004.

Thanks for the picture, Adry. It's an older one of when she visited Laos in 2000.

I went to the website http://www.picturepresseurope.com/
and the caption says it was taken March 16, 2006. I'm confused because I thought that was an older picture too.

That's weird...but it is an older picture, I promise. That was her mission to Laos with UNESCO in 2000.

I'm pretty sure that it was miss labeled. Usually she doesn't travel that much in such a short period of time, and she was just in France, so she wouldn't be going all the way to Laos.

I was wondering if the royal family had commented on the birth of Louis's son yet? Do you think they will?

PPE probably released a couple of pictures due to the upcoming Grand Duchess Maria Teresa's 50th birthday. They published MT's photos that were posted here along with couple of family pictures taken last year.

Did Maria-Teresa change her hair? To me the color and cut look lighter and different, but maybe it is just the way that she styled her hair.
