I didn't think she would be there. She is not a member of the family yet, and I think her attendance at the church would be a distraction. I'm sure that there is a certain protocol to be followed. Next year she will be front and center.

But she could have attended the Visit to Esch-sur-Alzette with Guillaume yesterday. Would have been a nice Introduction for as she has not attended any public Event in Luxembourg since the engagement.

Pregnant?

Tessy looks pregnant here, or is it just the dress? http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Jun2012/PPE12062340.jpg

I think so too. Shes the next Grand Duchess and she ist the fiancee of Guillaume. She was with him in Sweden so she should be on his side on her new countrys National Day to be introduced to the country.
Just my opinion.

Btw does Tessy look pregnant?

I think they taught the same when she was pregnant with Noah, and she announced it a few days later...

That Cathedral is breathtaking, the wedding should be amazing.

I am as impatient as everyone else to see more of the Royal bride-to-be...I wonder is the Court keeping her under wraps until she has a better grasp of Luxembourgish?

Isn't she still living at her family's Castle in Belgium?

I don't think Tessy is pregnant...just a residual "pouch" from having two children in quick succession.

The princesses such as Tessy should wear longer skirts. I can't see whether she's pregnant in that dress, but I can see that her skirt is way above her knees. This is the current high style, I realize, but it does not seem appropriate when the princesses are dressed up for formal occasions. On the beach, yes.

I don't think they're skirts are too short. Giving their age, I think their skirt lengths were just right.

Pity Stephanie was not there.

I agree. The fact that she was in Sweden would suggest that she would have been here, too. It is a disappointment.

She's not yet married into the royal family I don't see why she should attend their national day. She was in Sweden for the christening yes? That's a family event not a royal one, just with royal people attending.
