Yes, this so beautiful to see the royal houses sharing in the dynastic traditions of religious orders attending to the needs of the poor and most vulnerable. I read some background and origins of the order which you may find interesting, here are some excerpts: "The Queen (Elizabeth) was accustomed to visit the elderly, the needy and the poorest families in the kingdom, distributing to them money which she took from the Royal Treasury to buy food and clothing. Unjustly suspicious of the Queen”s charitable works the King (King Denis of Portugal) had her spied on and in his fury demanded retribution from her, but in the moment in which she revealed the money hidden in her clothing it was found that the coins had miraculously changed into roses.
Order of St. Isabel - La Real Casa d'Aragona

Very interesting, I lived in Luxembourg in 1972 to 1978 , and it was a very rich country , with all the banks , a little Hong Kong in Europe. They were a lot of people of Portugal, they worked both at were not poor at all.
Situation seams to have changed a lot. I know that if you want to rent a House in Luxembourg it is so expensive that belgians live in Arlon (Belgium) - Kind regards - MO

There will be a press conference about this matter next Thursday.

According to the article, it's the former Director of Intelligence who revealed that, according to him GD was spying in favour MIb the British Intelligence Services between 2008 and 2009 when he was still director...

The article in english:

Based on information of the Land to the Grand Duke of regular relations with MI6, the British intelligence services, a communiqué was issued. The foreign press also looked for the case. The Luxembourg weekly will provide a copy of its registration to members

"The Grand Ducal Court more formally denies reports in the media concerning the relations it would be maintained with the British secret service". The communiqué was issued following the revelations, this Friday of the Lëtzebuerger Land weekly.

In a secret interview and that the content is revealed by the newspaper, Marco thousand, former Chief of the intelligence service of Luxembourg now employed at Siemens, would have said to the Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker that the Grand Duke would have had contact with the British intelligence services. This interview can be traced back to 2008, before the last parliamentary elections in 2009.

Thursday press conference

Before Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker is publicly expressed in this regard on Thursday, the foreign press is the echo of the subject.

After a first AFP dispatch on the release site, le Figaro also devoted an article to the case entitled without detours, "the Duchy of the Luxembourg undermined by espionage. The lorrain Republican placed this information on the front page of its Saturday edition. The Belgian Het Nieuwsblad and RTBF media websites have also backed it.

Monday, the Land has announced in a press release that he would send a copy of the registration to the deputies of the parliamentary scrutiny of the intelligence of the State service commission:

"After the publication of the verbatim of a conversation between the Prime Minister and the Director of the Intelligence Service of the State at the time in Lëtzebuerger Land's November 30, 2012, the president of the parliamentary scrutiny of the intelligence of the State Service Commission requested the Land to send this record. Out of respect for the democratic institutions and not to impede the search for truth, the Lëtzebuerger Land has responded to this request and a copy of the recording, whose content is already, thanks to the Land, in the public domain".

It has been kind of you to translate the article. Hopefully it is a misunderstanding. The whole situation seems unbelievable.

I was not aware of the Grand Duchess until I saw this thread on the forums. I am impressed by her style. I am about the same age and build -- I am inspired!

Maria Teresa really is a great example of how women with more generous figures can really look incredibly beautiful and fashionable. I love her clothes.
