The Paris Match Belgian edition has a long interview with Grand Duchess Maria Teresa where she discusses her interests, struggles, recent criticisms (Waringo report) , and joy of new grandson Prince Charles. A series of photos were published including a photo with Princes Noah, Gabriel, Liam, and Princess Amalia.

I believe the interviewer is mistaken regarding the timeline: Grand Duke Henri came to his wife's defense before the release of the Waringo report, not after. The Grand Duchess also seems to consider what was written or said about her prior to the report's release to be more important, since her response to the question (at least what is included in the excerpt) does not mention the report itself, but focuses on explaining that attacks on her also wounded her husband due to their unity as a couple and that she appreciates his defense of her. Of course, the interviewer also chose to focus on the defense rather than the report.

Strange... Why does she need to promote herself even more; I thought the goal of the whole operation was to make her less a separate entity from the Grand Ducal Court instead of more... Wasn't she supposed to be taken under the wings of the general court (given the criticism that her personal website received far more attention than the court's website); and if so, how did she manage to get her own twitter account?!

Do we need to conclude that the measures taken were effectively sabotaged by the grand duchess (with support of the grand duke)?

Yes, that's exactly what she needs. (that was sarcasm by the way)
After the report issued several months ago you would think she would have learned to keep a lower profile.

I don't think she is capable of learning anything

I agree and confirm she is really the Boss of the Grand Ducal Family.
Grand Duke Henri is a weak Head of State and Husband.
Have other Consorts a Twitter Account ?

The latter's last post is a retweet of 1,5 years ago. MM's last own tweet dates from late 2017 (one of 3 in 2017; 2 original, 1 retweet).

The Grand Duchess will be the downfall of the Monarchy. IMOO. It is a matter of time.

Way back when, I often wondered why the Royal Ladies had to wear the Grand Duchesses old clothes. Of course some were altered but really, they did not suit the Royal Ladies personalities. They looked frompy, actually the clothes looked real bad and did nothing for the Ladies. GD always has new clothes.

I would hate to be a DIL of the GD....often wondered how much the GD this affected Tessy. Her remaining 2 DIL do not have it easy....jmoo.

To say that the grand duchess's attitudes will lead to the fall of the monarchy seems to me an exaggeration.
The monarchy is safe in Luxembourg.
In a few years the Grand Duke is expected to abdicate for his son.
I believe that behind the scenes the Grand Duchess has always had a lot of power, but today she must have less influence than she had before.
