When I lived in Luxembourg ,my old neighbour was private teacher of GD Charlotte's Chlidren.
One day I saw a car stopping before her house and the Grand Duchess Charlotte came out. The driver was her daughter Elisabeth Duchess of Hohenberg.
I will never forget her prestance and her smile. A great Lady !

Didn't they get along?

I've read somewhere that Charlotte was very supportive of Maria-Theresa when she married Henri.?

Absolutely not. The old Grand-Duchess considered the marriage of her grandson Henri a mésalliance and boycotted part of the wedding with a cold as excuse. When you see the partners of her sisters, children and other grandchildren it was an unusual wedding indeed.

She herself married a Prince de Bourbon de Parme. Her siblings married a Duke von Baden, a Fürst zu Schwarzenberg, a Crown Prince of Bavaria, a Prince von Thurn und Taxis, a Prince von Sachsen. Her children married a Princess of Belgium, a Duke von Hohenberg, a Count Henckel von Donnersmarck, a Lensgreve Holstein til Ledreborg, a Prince de Ligne. Only her youngest son married a non noble, Joan Douglas-Dillon, later re-married a Duc de Noailles.

For the future Grand-Duke the expectation was that he would choose a partner befitting his rank and position. It is claimed that when Grand-Duchess Charlotte was besotted with her great grandson Guillaume, that she became closer to María Teresa.

Well then old Charlotte would be pleased with the spouse of said great-grandson. Although a De Lannoy might've been considered a mesalliance before WWI today it's definitely not so.

Yes, and of her children's marriages only Jean's to Josephine-Charlotte of Belgium would have been acceptable before World War I.

A Duke von Hohenberg (morganatic Habsburg), a Count Henckel von Donnersmarck, a Lensgreve Holstein til Ledreborg, a Prince de Ligne, and Miss Joan Douglas Dillon would never have passed muster.

So, stickler that she was for suitable marriage partners, even Charlotte loosened the restrictions somewhat.

There'd be a lot of unmarried royals running around in this day and age if they had to stay to the standards pre-war. Half the royal houses are no-more...although perhaps that's not a factor.

They might not be reigning but the families are still there. Many of them had not really reigned for half a century or more by the time of WWI. Someone wrote or talked about the need for the German princelings and mediatized houses as royal stud farms which, crude as the expression was, is basically true.
The concept of ebenburtigeit depended on a plethora of suitable families available to produce marriage material for the monarchies of Europe and Brazil.

Joan Dillon married Prince Charles two years after the abdication of Grand Duchess Charlotte, so it was Grand Duke Jean who accepted that marriage.
