I think it was because the Grand Duke's mother did not approve of him marrying a commoner and wanted to see him married to a fellow royal, in the end I think the Grand duke's father talked Josephine-Charlotte around to at least sign off on the marriage although it is a well known fact that MT and JC never saw eye to eye.

Many articles claim that it was initally Grand Duke Jean who disapproved and that Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte came to Henri and MT's defense. Henri met Maria Teresa through mutual friends of Josephine-Charlotte and Maria Teresa's parents. The couple was Spanish and lived in Geneva. Maria Teresa came from a family with a lot of money, so that was probably helpful. I think it was only later, after she had a stroke, that GD Josephine-Charlotte turned against MT.

I am not sure what happened after the stroke of Josephine-Charlotte but often the personality of somebody changes after a stroke. It is said about Jaime de Marichilar and maybe also about the late Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte.

At the Berg Castle the Grand Duke and Duchess held a reception recently to honor the bourgmestres

The Grand Duchess' collar looks like a neck-brace. Who are the bourgmestres?

So it does. Why does she insist on wearing them like this?

They are like mayors in other countries. The coutry is divided in a few parts and each part is managed by a mayor or a bougmestre. It's just a difference of vocabulary.

Grand Duke Henri took the royal attitudes of both of this royal parents.
Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa is the heart and the sun of the Royal Court.
They are perfect.

The two royal-royals were Jean and Josephine-Charlotte, Constantin and Anne-Marie.
and now only Juan Carlos and Sophie. All the other royals are mixed weddings such as Queen Elisabeth II whose mother was a scottish nobelwomen, Margarete II, Beatrix, Harald , Baudouin and Albert II, Henri, Hans Adam and the King of Sweden.

I guess Grand Duchess Maria Teresa should burn some weight, she is a little fat.

This is a little insensitive and quite rude
For a lady who has given birth to five children, the Grand Duchess looks wonderful. She is elegant, and it is obvious that she and the Duke are happily married. I have found her to always look lovely and perfect for the occasion. I know that, personally, after having one child it was very difficult to "bounce back" into my former figure, and if truth be told, I never made it back there. Maria-Teresa gave birth in 1981, 1984, 1986, 1991, and 1992. I wonder how most women's figures would look after that?

There is a style thread on Grand Duchess Maria Teresa here. Feel free to discuss ideas about the forum in the forum support & feedback corner or to PM the Lux. moderators about it, we always welcome new ideas so we can see if we can improve the forum. But please do NOT discuss it in this thread, as this thread is for current events, not for TRF organization. The OT remarks have been removed as will future remarks about the matter.


Thank you for understanding,

It is good to hear about them every so often. I wonder why they aren't as well published as the other royals.
