Maybe this will post properly.

The last two are recent. She is still beautiful.

I'd like to see pictures of her before she married, before she left Cuba.

I used to have her as my avatar before the server change.

she left cuba at the age of 3 so i guess there aren't pics of her there...

gogm 08-28-2004 07:43 AM

then of her in the USA or Switzerland...

carlota 08-28-2004 09:16 AM

has she lived in usa?

i think it's important for a royal, politician, a bussiness man or even every person to travel around the world... it gives you a very open mind and lots of wisdom.

is it true that her hubby has a wondering eye? if so, that is truely sad.

JC supposedly was spreading rumors that Henri was cheating on MT in an attempt to break up their marrige.

semisquare 09-18-2004 10:10 AM

so then it just as a rumor, right. and since i'm still "wet behind the ears" in posting messages who is JC?

suturegeisha 09-18-2004 01:29 PM

JC= Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte, the mother of Grand Duke Henri and the wife of Grand Duke Jean.

She has been suspected of spreading a rather nasty rumour that her son Henri has been cheating on Maria Teresa with the Deputy Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Lydie Polifer [sp?]. It's a fairly well known admission that JC does not like MT, for whatever reason.

:eek: thats just sad
if her son is happy, then she should stay out of their lives-plain and simple no question, thoughts, feels, etc just stay out.
i mean girlfriend (MT) shouldnt stand for that-she needs to nip it in the bud. does MT have a backbone?

Girlfriend?? They are married. And the backbone part, are you talking about JC? :confused: If so, I think she does, she has just taken the overprotective parent thing to an extreme.

semisquare 09-19-2004 04:30 PM

i was talking about mt having a backbone. is the mother-in-law's initials jc if not plz correct me.

gaggleofcrazypeople 09-19-2004 08:03 PM

Yes, you're right, but JC is the one that was accusing Henri of having an affair.

Marengo 09-19-2004 08:09 PM

It is not a fact that Josephine-Charlotte spread those rumours. Only alligations made by an hysterical Marie-Thesere during a meeting with the press a while ago. It is widely known that JC (daughter of belgian king Leopold III) has (had?) difficulties with her sons marrying commoners, especially Helene Vestur & Prince Jean's marriage (GD Jean did not approve of this marriage henceforth Prince Jean and his offspring is only known as counts of Nassaau instead of princes of Luxembourg). JC called Marie-Thesere 'la petite cubaine'' (the little cuban girl) in private. Jean and JC did however accept their sons choice and approved of the marriage of their son Henri to Marie-Therese Mestre. This caused a rift within the family as the Grand Dukes cousin, the Duke of Parma, did not approve of the marriage. GD Jean stood up for his son & daughter-in-law and chose to drop the Bourbon-Parma title he received through his father all together to show his anger at his cousin.
JC was pleased with the common Sybilla Weiller as a daughter-in-law though (who of course descends from King Alfonso XIII & who's grandfather was one of the richest men of France).
Apart from JC's difficulties with MT's common background their characters also differ a lot. MT very vibrant, showy (catsuit woman!!!) etc while JC is more traditional and discrete. And we do of course not know what happened behind the screens...
All I know now is that Josephine-Charlotte is recovering from cancer & that the family appeared together 2 months ago for the baptism of an new Jean, the latest child of Guillaume & Sybilla (adorable couple).

i think its good she MT was a commoner... it makes the children more normal and aware of how people around the world live differently... she has done a great job with her children, they all seem very regal and look like they would have good values

And as you'll notice, I said she was "suspected" of spreading that rumour- not that she "definitely" spread it.

gaggleofcrazypeople 09-20-2004 08:45 AM

Wait, this Borbon Parma thing... I've heard Henri and MT's children being called Prince/ss of Nassau Borbon Parma.

stacy 09-20-2004 01:51 PM

yes, Henri is using the Bourbon-Parma title again - has since he became the grand duke, I think

bad_barbarella 09-20-2004 07:05 PM
