the video below shows at the end the GD MT giving directions to her staff whilst organising the gala event at the palace with occasion of national day. it's great to see that she get involved :) (yes, she is speaking in french, i guess that's the language she's most comfortable in)

In her new interview, Stephanie admits that she had difficulty mastering the new language. If she is a perfectionist, that might explain why we have seen relatively little of her in the first year and a half since the wedding.

hopefully a luxembourgish member can translate for us?

She learned Luxembourgish very fast ! That is not surprising though given that she was already fluent in German, which is very similar to Luxembourgish.

Her native language is Spanish, so French should be easier to her than Luxembourgish.

The new Guillaume/Stephanie portraits are really beautiful. Worth the wait!

Maria Teresa spent much of her childhood in Switzerland and attended numerous French-speaking schools and a French-speaking university so I don't think it's necessarily her Spanish language background that draws her to the French.

The court has quite a number of French-speaking staff so it wouldn't surprise me if she was speaking French so that her employees would understand what she is saying.

It's good to see Tessy, even though I don't think that dress is very nice. She looks very pretty.

I don't like Stephanie's dress either.
