It was often said after her death that she was not so cold and without emotions as many people thinks. She was very shy and usually didn't make much statements but I have seen a report about her on China State visit and she said that she was very impressed by that visit especially by the thousands of little historical soldiers. I try to find pics about that state visit in China because it was a remarkable moment for her.:)

I don't believe that she had such a bad relationship to Maria Teresa that many thinks. Certainly they had some difficulties in certain points because josephine-Charlotte was grown up as "une fille du roi" (daughter of the king) and had a very conservative point of view and thus prefered a royal wife for her son than a commoner but despite all this she loved her whole family and was always pleased to gather the whole family together.

A picture which underlines my statement is the family picture of January 1996 (GD Jean's 75th anniversary) and you see on such pictures a very happy mother and grandmother.:)

And I admire such persons who say: My family is the most important thing in my life.:o

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa said in an interview: " If one of my children is ill, I won't leave him for any function or visit in the world.":)

mt and j-c are two women whom i've always admired, but even moreso now b/c of those statements.

I'm glad you shared your thoughts with us, drimal. I very much agree with and admire what you wrote! :)

Seeing Josephine-Charlotte interviewed on the series "A Royal Family," she struck me as a woman who had a tough life at times, but despite some of the trials she had gone through, she still kept a lively sense of humour and a warm nature. I admire her greatly for this.

As for JC and MT's relationship, perhaps they didn't get on all of the time, but this is the same for many families. I'm sure that JC and MT did have their good moments; after all they have much in common - they're both mothers, they both help people, they have occupied the same position in their society, and most importantly, they are family! I hope that MT has special memories of JC that she will treasure always, and I hope she can think of these and be glad of the happier times they might have shared!

I think there is room for us to admire both these women, devoted to their family and their country and to generally making the world a better place. Of course, JC might have had her prejudices and her way of seeing things, but that merely means she is as human as the rest of us. :) :o

The elderly tend to have "their way" of thinking, which is different than how the rest of us think.

40th wedding of the Grand Ducal couple on 5.5.1993

The following pictures are from 1993 and shows a happy Grand Ducal couple celebrating their 40th wedding in the beautiful atmosphere of Castle Berg!

"The news of the engagement of Princess Josephine-Charlotte and Hereditary Grand Duke Jean was a surprise on 7th November of 1952. Ten days later the royal bridal couple was cheered and presented for the first time in the capital. They knew each other from their earliest childhood because between the Belgian and the Luxembourgish royal families existed a good and familiary relationship. The new connection between both countries fulfilled the wish of Belgium and Luxembourg to enhance the good relationship.
On 9th April 1953 was the wedding celebration in the cathedral of Luxembourg under the chairman of Monseigneur Fernando Cento, in the presence of many members of European royal houses and with a great media presence.The civil wedding between Josephine-Charlotte and Jean had been in the Grand Ducal Palace before the great event. With this marriage Princess Josephine-Charlotte became Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg and with after the throne achievement of Prince Jean on 12th November 1964 she became Grand Duchess of Luxembourg..." (cutting from the book Joséphine-Charlotte Homage 1927-2005)
