Continuing on what we were talking about in the last thread. I think it is a promise ring. She wasn't wearing any other rings at all on any other fingers. And she just seems like the kind of person who would wear one. Plus the wedding ring finger is mainly reserved for promise rings and wedding rings.

really? :lol:
I finally know what is it promise ring, but I wear my ring on my wedding ring finger. and it's not promise ring ;)
We will have to wait for another photos and we will see :smile:

More likely it isn't; promise rings are an American thing (see the Silver Ring Thing), and, as far as I know, not used anywhere in Europe :flowers: The only capacity I have ever seen them worn here has been as a sign that the person is in a serious, committed relationship - an exchange student in my class had one because he had a girlfriend waiting in Germany; the couple had got exactly the same ring for each other.

Alexandra is so young and has solo engagements! Until this time she was almost always with one of her parents.

How old were/are usualy royal princesses when they started their solo engagements? 15, 18 years old?

Kelly 10-27-2006 06:08 PM

I have never seen her in a solo engagement. Is this her first one? She did it well I might add.

In video you can see it's her second ;) I think her first solo engagment was when that project started. :flowers:

I wonder if we would ever see Tessy and Gabriel in official family pictures. Louis is not in the line to the throne any more, wonder if he would have any official engagements.

Personally I don't think that Alexandra is too young to be having solo engagements. Lots of people who are similar in age around the world attend school, take part in maintaining the family home, and sometimes have jobs outside the home. In addition, Alexandra, at least in pictures, appears very calm, responsible, and professional. And since they finally allowed her to stop dressing like a little girl she appears more mature.

On that note, IMO she really has become a beautiful young woman, the best combination of her parents. Beatrice and Eugenie, while both attractive, usually wear things that are ill-fitting (i.e. too tight), and most of the time have a mismatched appearance. At least they are finally both wearing heels.

At any rate, congrats to Alexandra for stepping into her adult life as the number two woman in Luxembourg.

First engagement in 2003. :smile:

She is really grown up and professional for a 15 year old girl.

That's very sad news :sad: . Will the funeral be private or public?

Kelly 03-01-2007 07:50 PM

What sad news. Did she live in luxembourg?

No Princess Marie-Adélaïde was living with her husband Count Carl Josef Henckel von Donnersmarck (*1928) and her four children Andreas (*1959), Felix (*1960), Heinrich (*1961) and Marie Charlotte (*1965), (all have the Count or Countess title)at Castle Wolfsberg in Carinthia (Austria), the domain of the family Henckel von Donnersmarck.


She was living at Castle Berg (Luxembourg), Pianore (Italy) and in Hohenburg (Germany) during her youth. She had studied in Roehampton (Great Britain) and Brussels then she past her exams in the Collège Jésus Marie de Sillery in Montreal (Canada).

I guess the funeral will be in Austria because she has died in an hospital in Carinthia.

It seems that she did go along with Maria Theresa. I thought Gabriel did not have the title of prince of luxembourg?
