source: Burke's Royal Families of the World Vol 1 & the Almanach de Gotha
but all of them have the surname Herzog/Herzogin von Württemberg.

Duke Christoph married in 2000 ires Caren Metzger, the have 2 children
Syvlie, born 2001, and Louis born 2003
Also Duchess Christiane married 2003 Till Kitzing.

They first time i have seen pictures of Ludwig was when he attended the 70th birthday celebrations of Duke Carl in 2006.

Ok there is a difference between the legal surnames as per german law and the social and family recognised 'titles'. I doubt that Duke Karl would recognise his nephews and nieces as Duke or Duchess.

IMO Dianne de Wurtemberg was one of the most interesting children of the Count and Comtesse de Paris. I remember seing photos of her marriage to Duke Karl and then the births of her brood of children. She has always been very different from her siblings and her attitudes have also been very modern, especially for the sort of environment where she was born and then later, lived.

Diane, Eberhard and Michael of Württemberg at Monrepos, Ludwigsburg,
October 7, 2008. Not sure about the event, something related with art
and there was a handover of a cheque, maybe charitable donations.

Maybe it's just me but Diane doesn't look much older than her sons.

Wasn't it usual for Dss Marie and Friedrich & Marie's children to attend too? I remember pictures of earlier receptions where they all attended.
Nice to ahve some new pictures of the Duke & Duchess btw, and Althausen is very pretty of course.

It's amazing that Diane doesn't keel over from the weight of that heavy belt she is wearing!
From a distance she looks fine, but up close - her face is so distorted now from ....

Some of them where there most present but not all most of the time. More surprising is that Duchess Marie is not present i thinks she was always present and also Duchess Julia has attended every year since her marriage.

The late Madame le Comtesse de Paris who was the most beautiful Princess of Europe, accepted being older with high class and was in her older days always so elegant.
The Duchess of Wurtemberg should keep in mind her mother's unique look and should avoid botox and dresses which are not appropriate for a lady who is +/- 70 years old.

The Duchess has always been the most flamboyant and artistic of all of Madame's children. I do not think she will slow down anytime soon.!

Because it is the highest order in Europe. I am sure Prince Lorenz was wearing his.
They are 2 orders :
The Austrian , headmaster Archiduke Karl of Habsbourg. Only for catholic members
The Spain, headmaster the King of Spain has non catholic members such as Queen
Elisabeth II, the King of Sweden the late King Husein of Jordan.
King Albert II of the belgians has the 2 orders and only 3 noble families for Belgium or less because the Prince Antoine de Ligne died.
