I don't think they're skirts are too short. Giving their age, I think their skirt lengths were just right.

Pity Stephanie was not there.

I agree. The fact that she was in Sweden would suggest that she would have been here, too. It is a disappointment.

She's not yet married into the royal family I don't see why she should attend their national day. She was in Sweden for the christening yes? That's a family event not a royal one, just with royal people attending.

Just my opinion.

Btw does Tessy look pregnant?

Delighted by Tessy. I don't like these rules about Stephanie not being yet present. I think that when the engagement is official she should be present... next year of course !

I would love her to be but I think it is just the dress !

In all fairness to Stephanie, I don't think she refused to attend the National Day Events or anything.

I think the Grand Ducal Court is calling the shots, and if they wanted her there she would been there.

They know how much buzz this wedding is attracting and they know people are curious about Gui's fiancee...but they have still decided to adhere strictly to tradition and keep her away from official events until she is Hereditary Grand Duchess.

That's just the way they roll in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Which sash is the Grand Duke and Guillaume wearing in this image -http://www.ppe-agency.com/preview.php?zoektype=2&id=82213&start=0&search=23-06-2012%20Luxembourg ? I've never seen it before.

I'm always impressed at the wonderful show Luxembourg puts on on National Day for such a relatively small country, and the family looks so nice together.

I think it's fine for Stephanie not to attend until she is the Hereditary Grand Duchess. Maybe she may appear at one or two small-scale events just before the engagement as the Duchess of Cambridge did just before her wedding.

The Grand Ducal couple gave a National Day garden party at Castle Berg, attended by Prince Guillaume and his fiancée Stéphanie de Lannoy.
