I wonder if this visit will be now be cancelled? I'm sure HM has more important things on her mind at present and I would imagine all parties involved would be understanding.

I hope for the State Banquet we will see Princesses Charlotte and Tessy with tiaras.

You mean princess Alexandra ;)
I don't think so. Alex is studying abroad, and Tessy with family lives in England. They never attended at state dinners and they probably never won't.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa's dress looks similar to the dress of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden at the last nobel prize ceremony!

I have never seen the Grand Duchess' tiara before and I thought I had seen them all. Does anyone know it's history? I must say that the Luxembourg jewel collection seems very vast and impressive.

Artemisia 03-20-2012 05:29 PM

I think both Queen Beatrix and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa looked beautiful. I'm not normally a fan of shiny gowns, but the ladies pulled it off.
Grand Duke Henri and Prince Guillaume look very smart indeed.
