I think really inbred anybody would be ugly, royal or not!:p

Yeah, some inbred royals of the past were rather unpleasant to look at, but anymore I don't think it's a big problem.

Yes, considering that he used to look just like Felix.

I disagree, TRH's The Princesses of York are recieving more and more media spotlight, Beatrice cover girl for tatler, and i have a feeling the same is in store for Eugenie, who in my opinion is the prettiest sister, plus she might only be a granddaughter of a soverign compaired to Alexandra, but still her grandmother is the Queen of England, quite different to the Grand Duke of Luxemburg

I'll modify my statement now after these past few months and seeing the YOrk girls out in the spotlight more and more , although they are the one's putting themselves out there, not that there isn't any interest in them.

Even though she is the daughter of a reigning monarch, I do feel that Alexandra will be able to live a relatively private life if she chooses to do so. Of course, I could be wrong about that.

The intire family pretty much lives a private life. I don't believe it would be hard for Alex to do so.

She is growing into her role as a Princess of Luxembourg, and she might want to do active roles since she probably might be going off to college when she get of age to do so. Also, if she do go to college then after she graduates that might be the time when she decides on taking active roles in her country.:)

I agree. One of the main reasons why it should be relatively easy is because of the reduced amount of media attention on the family. They appear in the media, especially when there are public appearances, but they haven't fallen victim over the years to constant media coverage on television or even print media. Not many stories are made up about them either for the sake of selling papers or magazines.

The reason why there is no bad press about them is because it is illegal there. But depending on what ahe does with her life, she may or may not take on an active role in the family.

Is bad press about the royal family really illegal there?

I'm wondering the same question too! How exactly do they define bad press? I think it's unfair if people aren't allowed to express their opinions on any negative aspects on the family, they probably don't have any, but it is ridiculous if that is the case...

Yes, from what I understand it is. I have also been told by a friend that it is illegal as well to print anything negative about members of the Princely Family of Monaco within the principality. I didn't know that.

Although it is illegal to print negative media about the Grand Ducal Family in Luxembourg it is still true that they haven't had large amounts of stories and such made up about them in other papers around Europe, especially in some of the German tabloids. They have fared well in that respect.

Tabloids are illegal there. I just think that the rest of the world just doesn't seem to care enough.

What's Alexandra's favorite color?
She seems to gravitate a lot more towards pink lately than white.
It's such a pity that all we ever see of the boys are suits, except when they're in Carasson (sp?)

Why is that a pity? I love seeing them in suits- especially Felix, he fills his out so nicely- it's much better than the t-shirt-and-jeans-I-just-rolled-out-of-bed-look.

I agree with you! But cute guys will look good in almost anything :)

Are there any recent pictures of alexandra? I remember seeing a family portrait but I think she was only around 10 years old in it
