Dr. Rwabuhihi and the Minister for Youth, Sports and Culture, Hon. Ngarambe. .

As an unmarried princess she wore those Bandeau tiaras.


On her wedding day she wore the same tiara as her sister Margaretha and her sister-in-law Maria Teresa did.

Princess Marie-Astrid

Her Royal Highness Princess Marie Astrid, the eldest daughter of Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte, was born at Betzdorf Castle on 17 February 1954.

The Princess studied in Luxembourg and Belgium. She gained her diploma as a state-registered nurse in 1974 and completed her education in 1977 with a nursing certificate in tropical medicine from the Prince Léopold Institute.

She has been president of the Red Cross of Luxembourg Youth since 1970.

The Princess has been married to His Imperial and Royal Highness Charles Christian of Hapsburg-Lorraine, Archduke of Austria, since 6 February 1982.

Five children were born out of this marriage:

Princess Marie-Christine (b. 31 July 1983)

Prince Christophe (b. 2 February 1988)
Prince Alexander (b. 26 September 1990)
Princess Gabriella (b. 26 March 1994)

(So her children do have titles...)

Her husband is also a Belgium noble-- his title: Prince of Habsburg-Lorraine and Serene Highness (19 Aug 1983).

Princess Marie-Astrid's eldest daughter, Princess Marie-Christine, is going to turn 20 next month. The picture that shows Marie-Astrid's family shows the most recent picture of the Princess and I think she is beautiful! She looks a lot like her mother did when she was younger.

I think people keep focusing on people like Princess Madeleine and Charlotte for Princes like William or Felipe...and we forget that there are plenty of other princesses out there! In addition, there are Marie-Christine's cousins. Princess Margaretha's eldest shall be 17 and Prince Jean's eldest shall be 16. I'm not saying that anything will happen between the Luxembourg Princesses and other Princes of the world (or that Princes need to marry royalty)...but its a possibility! :P

This will show the relationship between Lorenz and Carl Christian. http://pages.prodigy.net/ptheroff/gotha/austria.html

The family lives in Switzerland, apparently.

Lorenz and Carl-Christian are first cousins. Their fathers are brothers.

They are entitle to bear the titles because the Austrian emperor was also King of Hungary and Bohemia.

Their full titles in German are:

Kaiserliche® Prinz(essin) und Erzherzog(in) von Österreich, Königliche® Prinz(essin) von Ungarn und Böhmen

in English it means:

Imperial Prince(ss) and Archduke (Archduchess) of Austria, Royal Princ(ess) of Hungary and Bohemia

The Tuscany branch of the house also bears the title of a "Prinz(essin) von Toskana".

I got this article from POINT DE VUE, I was wondering if anybody could translate it for me. My translator doesn't do a very good job.

--Discrets, ils preferent les soirees familiales dans leur havre de paix suisse aux diners de la jet-set. Et s'ils descendent volontiers les pistes de ski des stations alentour, il n'empeche que Marie-Astrid de Luxembourg et Christian de Habsbourg veillent avec un soin jaloux a separer leurs engagements publics de leur vie privee. Quand certaines familles royales se dechirent, eux incarnent encore cette image d'Epinal attachee aux princes d'autrefois. Un respect du passe qu'ils refusent pourtant de recouvrir d'un voile de nostalgie. Dirigeant d'une firme d'audit financiere, Christian entend avant tout preserver le capital confiance qu'il entretient avec sa progeniture, quitte a partager avec eux le bivouac au fin fond du Colorado et de l'Utah. Les voyages, dit-on, forment la jeunesse. Aussi les princes ont-ils tenu a emmener leurs cinq enfants a la decouverte du Botswana et de l'Afrique du Sud, histoire de leur montrer que tout un chacun dans le monde ne partage pas leurs privileges. Une lecon pleinement assimilee pas l'ainee, Marie-Christine. Etudiante en sciences economiques et politiques a l'Universite de Louvain, la jeune polyglotte (francais, anglais, allemand et espagnol) a deja effectue une saison de benevolat humanitaire dans le sud du Chili. Son frere, Imre, s'apprete a passer sa maturite, ce baccalaureat version suisse qu'il prepare entre deux matchs de foot avec son pere et ses freres, Christoph et Alexander. Mais comme decidement, pour le petit-fils des derniers empereurs d'Autriche, Charles et Zita, la famille est sacree, il aime retrouver sa nombreuse et tres royale parente a travers l'Europe, de Belgique au Liechtenstein en passant par l'Autriche et le Luxembourg. Alors qu'il s'apprete, le 17 fevrier, a feter ses cinquante ans quelques mois seulement apres ceux de son epouse, l'archiduc continue a jourer les artisans du bonheur conjugal. Et puisqu'apres vingt-deux ans, ils s'aiment comme au premier jour, ils s'accordent chaque annee une ultime edition de leur lune de miel. Une escapade a deux dont la destination ce printemps encore releve presque du secret d'Etat. Amour, amour, amour...

Marie Christine is quite attractive. Very beautiful just like her mother. That Gabriella is adorable. Such blonde hair. She will grow up to be beautiful too. Of coures, Marie-Astrid is a gorgeous 50 year old as well. I love the stops. They were cool. Marie-Astrid reminds me of someone but I can´t remember who.
