I'm curious to see if Princess Alexandra will participate. And maybe Tessy.

It seems like it has been a very long time since we have seen Tessy de Nassau participating in any events. It would be nice to see her again.

I know that Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria-Theresa will be there I wonder what other members of the ducal family will attend this state visit? I can't wait to see photos of this coming event in November.

I wouldn't expect to see either Tessy nor Alexandra wearing the Nassau jewels. Alexandra in unmarried (and still quite young), and Tessy is treated as morganatic (there was not even a tiara at the wedding). Nonetheless, I think it would be nice to see them participate, and even without antique jewellery they would look wonderful.

Yes, but both Tessy and Alexandra wore tiara's on National day this year that the Grand Duchess has worn herself so there might be a chance of more jewels.

Also with longer hair, Maria Teresa looks very pretty.

I like the longer hair - the color is pretty blah.
MT needs to give the longer hair some style - it just hangs very limply around her face - her hair needs some volume and waves.

Also, if MT had switched her colors in her outfit - if she had worn a pink top under a black jacket, the whole effect would have been much more flattering figure-wise.

I must say MT looks refreshing in the gala dinner gown. It kind of looked like she had dyed her hair brown.

From earlier in the day, MT dyed her hair dark brown! It makes the tiara (turquoise jewels?) stand out even more.

The President of Finland seems to get along with many royals, she's always invited to a lot of their major events.

It could be that she was dying it BEFORE and this is her natural hair color?

I do like the parure,on her daughter Alexandra that is,not on Maria-Teresa,it is too "small" for her.She looks like a matrone on a night out.
Talk about hair?No comment,awfull.This whole outfit & jewellery isn't becoming her at all.

What I do like is the brooch,something in that order is more befitting with a Lady the size of Catherine the Great,allthough much nicer,sweeter,a person.

I agree with everything you have said. Her hair looks terrible (dirty?) and the tiara is not the right size for her. I worry about Maria Teresa when I see her like this.
