The genuine loving warmth and charm that flowed between Guillaume and Stéphanie as well as to those around them today was so beautiful to watch. I am completely smitten!!

The sight of the two of them kneeling so unselfconsciously in the street-in their wedding clothes! to interact with the small children who had drawn pictures for them made me melt-beautiful!

I was surprised at how natural and relaxed Stephanie was with the crowds, by the way-she seemed in her element today.

I adored the little looks and giggles between them during their civil ceremony!

What a couple, if they were not my favorites before today they certainly are now!

As an elementary French speaker, am I right in thinking the civil ceremony officiant switched between French and Luxembourgish? It sounded like he spoke French to Guillaume when asking if he'd "take" Stephanie but spoke Lux. to Stephanie when asking her.

lancchick, that is exactly what hapened. Xavier Bettel read Guillaume's vows to him in French and Gui reponded yes-"oui"....he repeated with Stephanie in Luxembougish and she answered yes-"jo".

I thought it was unusual and I liked it!

It may be of interest that the mayor who performed the wedding, Xavier Bettel is openly gay.

Very nice! A nice nod to equality and how many strides have been made in recent years to ensure equal rights for gay people. Lovely.

I couldn't have said it better myself. !

It was simply perfect, adorable, loving, fun. "In her element" is exactly the way to describe Stephanie.

Thank you for sharing, Stefan!
I really liked reading about your experience in Luxembourg, and seeing the pictures (you were pretty close to the Grand Ducal family).

The article stated:
The 30-year-old Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg is the last hereditary Prince in Europe to get married,

Who was the previous hereditary Prince in Europe to get married before Guillaume did?
