No Tessy ? No Stephanie ? VERY disappointed !

liv 06-23-2012 08:04 AM

I didn't think she would be there. She is not a member of the family yet, and I think her attendance at the church would be a distraction. I'm sure that there is a certain protocol to be followed. Next year she will be front and center.

But she could have attended the Visit to Esch-sur-Alzette with Guillaume yesterday. Would have been a nice Introduction for as she has not attended any public Event in Luxembourg since the engagement.

Pregnant?
 
Tessy looks pregnant here, or is it just the dress? http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Jun2012/PPE12062340.jpg

liv 06-23-2012 10:01 AM

I think so too. She┤s the next Grand Duchess and she ist the fiancee of Guillaume. She was with him in Sweden so she should be on his side on her new country┤s National Day to be introduced to the country.
Just my opinion.

Btw does Tessy look pregnant?

I think they taught the same when she was pregnant with Noah, and she announced it a few days later...

contessa 06-23-2012 10:33 AM

I am thinking it is just a dress. if you look at the pic of the the whole family her belly does not look any different then P. Alexandra.

Moonmaiden23 06-23-2012 12:34 PM

That Cathedral is breathtaking, the wedding should be amazing. :whistling:

I am as impatient as everyone else to see more of the Royal bride-to-be...I wonder is the Court keeping her under wraps until she has a better grasp of Luxembourgish?

Isn't she still living at her family's Castle in Belgium?

I don't think Tessy is pregnant...just a residual "pouch" from having two children in quick succession.

Mariel 06-23-2012 12:50 PM

The princesses such as Tessy should wear longer skirts. I can't see whether she's pregnant in that dress, but I can see that her skirt is way above her knees. This is the current high style, I realize, but it does not seem appropriate when the princesses are dressed up for formal occasions. On the beach, yes.

Moonmaiden23 06-23-2012 01:48 PM

Yes, I was surprised at the length of Tessy's and Alexandra's skirts too....:ohmy:

dazzling 06-23-2012 04:29 PM

I don't think they're skirts are too short. Giving their age, I think their skirt lengths were just right.

Pity Stephanie was not there.

I agree. The fact that she was in Sweden would suggest that she would have been here, too. It is a disappointment. :sad:

Lumutqueen 06-23-2012 04:55 PM

She's not yet married into the royal family I don't see why she should attend their national day. She was in Sweden for the christening yes? That's a family event not a royal one, just with royal people attending.
