Love,love the pictures. So beautiful and what a lovely couple. They look great together and sooo happy. Thanks for sharing. :)

I love photo number ten, with the two of them viewing fireworks from the balcony on the wedding evening.

The entire wedding had a magic, storybook quality to it and that photo encapsulates it perfectly, imo. :wub:

Stephanie looks very beautiful in these:

Moonmaiden23 11-02-2012 01:07 AM

I've always loved that photo of them at the Olympics where Guillaume is kissing her forehead...the expression on his face!

Sadly, it was also the last time we saw them truly happy until the wedding. Countess de Lannoy's sudden death came almost exactly 4 weeks after those pictures were taken.

Found this nice pic, it´s probably from May 2012 at a party for Maria Galitzine:

I do know why I like them. It is because they act like a "lady" and a "gentleman," restoring dignity to the concept of royalty. And they are cute, too. And well educated, both of them.

Same here. They are the youngest and the sweetest of the CP couples. ;)

I loved Stephanie's gown at Princess Madeleine's wedding.

Couldn't agree more! It is so obvious!! So sweet! I just love it. It's evident for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well, however I feel that Stephanie and Guillaume are by far more obvious than any other royal couple when it comes to "the look of love" so to speak!

I have to admit that they are a lovely couple. She makes him, a somewhat serious man, look really good, and he looks so protective of her.

It's good to see they look happy together considering that the general consensus prior to their wedding was that they had an arranged marriage.

I don't believe that it is an arranged marriage. Stephanie had a lot of succes and I believe Guillaume had too. It's not because they are somewhat reserved that they aren't in love ;) And when you see both of them in private situation, they are a lot more cool and cosy :smile:

Was that the general consensus? Don't think so, never heard about this and I have followed all the news about them closely.
It's pretty obvious that they are very devoted to each other, you only have to look at the footage of their wedding.

Moonmaiden23 01-02-2015 02:52 AM

Arjann, you are right. There was no "general consensus" of an arranged marriage at all. It was the opinion of a handful of Royal observers who would have enthusiastically labeled the relationship a grand love story if Stephanie had been a waitress or janitor's daughter.:cool:

There are existing photos(on a private board) of a very happy looking Guillaume and Stephanie on holiday together in Lebanon a full year before their relationship was ever made public.

Guillaume chose his wife the same way a great majority of men choose a life partner. He married a woman from a similar socio-economic and religious background, and with whom he had shared interests.

Sometimes an apple really is just an apple.

COUNTESS 01-02-2015 06:07 PM

I think if you look at them, you can see love. She is a highly educated and intelligent woman. I doubt she was desperate to marry anyone she didn't care for. He is a wonderful young man. If it were arrange, which I doubt, they did a good job.

fandesacs2003 01-03-2015 04:34 PM

Stephanie belongs to a high social level, she is is perfectoy educated, nice and would make a perfect HD. The same rumour existed when Pcs Philip married Mathilde, ane 15 y after it is still love between them. When 2 people come from the same social level and they have the same values and education, immediately bad rumor starts, as if it was impossible to fall in love with someone armoniousely accorded to...
Love can exist between non similar people, but not only.

If Henri and Maria Teresa's marriage was not arranged, why on earth would anyone think Guillaume and Stephanie's was?

Exactly. Guillaume and Stephanie dated for about two years prior to their engagement.
Even though their fathers are 7th cousins, did Guillaume and Stephanie frequently see each other when they were younger?

Moonmaiden23 01-03-2015 08:17 PM

No, my understanding of their story is that they first met at a party in 2002 when Guillaume was in a relationship with a niece of Queen Sonja of Norway. They had no contact with one another again until 6-7 years later when, according to an interview at the time of their engagement they saw one another again in Germany in the fall of 2009 at a gathering given by mutual friends. They quietly dated for two years and announced their engagement in the spring of 2012.

As I mentioned a few posts above, I have seen a photo of the two of them taken in the summer of 2011 in Lebanon. They were attending the wedding of a mutual friend and were quite obviously a couple at that point.

Because most of the heirs have married non-aristocrats I think many people assumed Guillaume would do the same and were taken by surprise when he didn't. Combined with the fact that the relationship was conducted in almost total secrecy/privacy and the engagement seemed to come out of nowhere, people assumed it was an "arrangement". The same thing happened when Philippe of Belgium announced his engagement to a noblewoman.

You're right. :flowers: Beautiful.

I doubt their marriage is an arranged one. The Luxembourg family is too modern to even consider such a marriage.

:previous: I have to wonder from whence these odd ideas about arranged marriages originate;

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde.

Prince Laurant and Princess Claire.

Prince Frederik and Princess Mary; not allowed to marry his (Danish) true love and having to settle for Mary.

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene, good grief, not only was it an "arranged" marriage, but he had to hold her prisoner until the wedding . . . :lol: :rofl:

And now we have HGD Guillaume and HGD Stephanie! What an incredibly fertile imagination the media have, although I have to admit, they all do look the very picture of misery when they are together . . . :tongue: Not!

Moonmaiden23 03-09-2015 01:23 AM

:previous: So true. But in the case of Guillaume and Stephanie the first and only place I have ever heard the arranged marriage theory put forth was online, on message boards.:whistling: Both Guillaume and Stephanie have explained in detail how they met one another.

Both play the piano, it was said at the time of the engagement Stephanie plays and is a fan of classical music.

Sorry for the late reply. The other photo's text roughly translates to "At night, we like to enjoy our home and cook together. My wife is a specialist in Flemish carbonnade. And I cook Cuban dishes from time to time" (Google translation)

The tweet was posted October 2016.
