But MT's family was somehow related to Castro financially?

no, mt's family had ties to the pro-american batista government. there were even some rumors circulating that her family was or is related to him.

It probably helps!!!! MT came from a wealthy family but Sibilla probably came from an even wealthier family...

But for future generations, I don't think wealth will be that much of a factor.

I agree - if you look at the women that have married into royal families recently, you wouldn't call a lot of them wealthy... that's not an insult to them :o just a sign of the times!

And lots of other wild animals. Anyway, getting back on topic, Sibilla's family is amazingly rich.

Does Sibilla's family own some big giant corporate company? Or did they inherit their riches through generations of accumulation? did i just rhyme? hahahaha

They might have inherited it, because they are royal (kinda).

I thought it might be nice to show some pics of the newest edition to Guillaume and Sibilla's happy brood - these were taken at young Prince Jean of Nassau's Christening (August 8th, 2004) at the church of Contern, Luxembourg. :) I particularly like the photo of the three Jeans!

1. The three Jeans all together, 2. family group, 3. Sibilla, son and Archbishop Fernand Franck, 4. In the church, 5. Sibilla, Guillaume & (L-R) Paul-Louis, Leopold and Charlotte.

The only other pics would be from different events like the weddings of Duchess Elisabeth in Bavariand Countess Gabriela von Waldburg-Zeil. Also there were some pics from Josephine-Charlotte's seventy-seventh birthday celebration. Both Guillaume and Sibilla attended along with their eldest three children.
