That pic might have just been one of those moments where she just didn't want to be photographed. But I do think she got a different hair style.

i don't think the Grand Duchess accompanied her husband to Budapest. the Grand Duke was there to inaugurate an exhibition called "Arts and Culture at the Age of Zsigmond of Luxembourg" at the Museum of Fine Arts. :)

I love the grand duchess' style about 80 percent of the time. I hope she never wears leopard print in public again (e.g. dress at the party) and keeps her hair past her shoulders.

Does anyone have pictures of Henri & MT's marriage?

Hello,

I'm new to this forum, so before anything I like to say hello to everyone!

I was wondering if anyone has pictures of Henri and Maria Teresa's marriage? I've seen a few pictures that one can find in Corbis.com and I've found some pictures doing searches on the internet, but I like to see more. I know that the Spanish magazine Hola and the French magazine Point de Vue probably had several pages of coverage, but I was never able to see the issues in question! :( I once even contacted Hola Magazine to see if I could get an old copy, but was informed that they don't retain old copies of Hola!
I know that when royals get married, there are usually pictures of the entire family on the two sides. I love to see a picture of Maria Teresa's family; her parents who have since passed away, her grandmother [who was still alive at the time of the marriage] and her brothers and sisters, cousins, aunts, etc.. who may have been included. I do have Paris Match's coverage, but it only had a few pictures and not of MT's family.

Maybe if someone has some of these pictures [it doesn't have to be limited to MT's family, any other pics of the marriage would be fine], he or she can scan them and post them, or provide links if they are on the internet?

Thanks for this tall order!

:)

Finally I have weekend and can translate the nice article about Grand Duchess Maria Teresa published in the "Luxemburger Wort" on thursday.:)

One does not celebrate round birthdays all days. One of the most beautiful Grand Duke Maria Teresa celebrates today: She will be 50 „Happy Birthday, Madame ...!“. With 50 she also manages to be the mother, wife, First Lady and ambassador of Luxembourg in the world apparently at the same time and finds at the same time yet sufficiently time to support socially handicapped persons.

At the side of her man, Grand Duke Henri, Maria Teresa has engaged for more than 25 years for lower social groups nationally as well as internationally. At the same time the Grand Duchess has shaped the new style of the ruler house thanks to its spontaneity and candor . Especially on the encounters with notable personalities appears that Maria Teresa is always endeavored exactly like her man , further to embody the continuity of the domestic ruler house simultaneously, however also tries to live the relaxed contact forms of a modern monarchy.



Maria Teresa Mestre was born in Cuba on the 22 March 1956 in Havanna. Her parents are José Antonio Mestre and Maria Teresa Batista-Falla de Mestre. During the revolution in October 1959 Maria Teresa Mestre left together Cuba with her parents. The family established first of all in New York, where the young Maria Teresa went to the Marymount-school and visited from 1961 the French upper school .

Of this marriage four sons and a daughter were born: Prince Guillaume, born on the 11 November 1981, prince Félix on the 3 June 1984, prince Louis on the 3 August 1986, princess Alexandra on the 16 February 1991 and prince Sébastien on the 16 April 1992.
Since the 10 June 1997 Grand Duchess Maria Teresa is "Unesco-Special Ambassador of the Good Will" . Her special attention applies the worldwide development working to women and girls as well as the production of micro credits. In numerous humanitarian foundations, that prescribed itself this goal, she leads the chair. She is supporting devotedly all actions, with which women, especially based on microcredits, who receive possibility to stand on own feet, to become independent and to defend therefore their rights.
