I was reading the weddings newsletter some time back and it said that during her wedding to Grand Duke Jean, as she was walking down the aisle, she was crying because she wanted to marry someone else (a commoner I think). Can anyone elaborate on this if this is true?

Late Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte's eyes were green, late Grand Duke Jean's eyes are brown.
Grand Duke Henri has blue eyes and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa brown eyes.
I think all of their children have brown eyes (but I'm not totally sure for Louis).

Yes, I've heard something like this multiple times, so it is probably true. I'm not sure about the commoner part, but it makes sense.

He's probably the main patron of that organization and that's the only reason that he was there.

That makes sense. I just think that at his age maybe he should be spending his birthday with his family.

Grand Duke Jean's mother, Grand Duchess Charlotte, was the godmother of Princess Joséphine-Charlotte of Belgium, and the marriage was more or less arranged by Queen Elisabeth of Belgium [Joséphine-Charlotte's grandmother] and Grand Duchess Charlotte.

Thank you, drimal, for the picture and the information! Grand Duke Jean looks like he's such a friendly person- he has a fabulous smile!
And I think it's sweet that he's the Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts. :-D
