Pregnancy suits Princess Stephanie. She appears entirely relaxed and comfortable, a look I'm not used to seeing with her.

The Grand Duchess was not present because she is with her brother who is in the hospital.

Agreed both ladies look lovely. Can anyone tell me why Stephanie's order is different from the rest?

Because she doesn't have the Order of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau yet. Therefore, she is wearing her highest order: The order of Adolphe of Nassau. I expect her to be given the highest order when her husband becomes the grand duke and she will be the grand duchess.

Her sister-in-law Claire and former sister-in-law Tessy and the brothers/sisters-in-law of Henri (except for Diane who has no order it seems) have the order of Adolphe of Nassau but not the Order of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau.

In this case, Wikipedia is your friend with an overview of the orders of the various family members.

It was a Grand Ducal Palace decorated with warm floral arrangements that hosted the New Year's reception last night. A variety of flowers and a range of colors selected by the Grand Duchess.

The Golden Lion of the House Nassau is a joint Order of the two Nassau branches. The Order aims to be "a symbol of the unity and the alliance of two branches of the House Nassau".


The statutes of the Order says that princes born to the head of the House are a Knight by birthright (but wear the decorations from the age of 18).



Stéphanie has not yet been bestowed this Order, I see. It is possible that Queen Beatrix or King Willem-Alexander would have bestowed it to her, but these creations are always in mutual agreement with the head of the other branch (Grand-Duke Henri).



I am not sure when Grand-Duchess Maria Teresa became a Dame in this Order. In 2000 upon accession of her husband?

Amazing. Usually it's business suits and nicer dresses for New Year receptions. I hope this new format (tiaras, orders and uniforms) is the standard for New Year receptions from now on.

According to people from Lucarazzi they've decided to cancel the evening gala on the the National day and instead make the New year's reception a gala. The National day celebrations will from now on end with the Te Deum.

As far as i recall GD Maria Teresa got the Order of the Lion of Nassau when her husband became Grand Duke. But still a bit strange that the wife of the Heir does not have the hightest Order of the country which is the case in all other monarchies with the exception of the UK.
