I began to wonder about GD MT when her daughter in-laws began showing up in her old clothes. How controlling is that.

When MT began skipping out on State visits for vague reasons, I became suspicious.

And when she skipped Count Lannoy's funeral to attend a cocktail party in Paris with Brigitte Macron i was very suspicious indeed...it all started to fall into place.

Which is rather disappointing, because I have been posting about my admiration for GD Maria Teresa for years.

Come on please, what a nonsense.

Princess Margriet has worn dresses of her mother Queen Juliana. Queen Máxima and Princess Mabel have worn dresses of their mother-in-law Queen Beatrix. Crown Princess Victoria has worn dresses of her mother Queen Silvia. Etc.

It is haute couture, often worn only once or twice, no wonder daughters like to browse in their mother's unbelievable garderobe.

The examples you have posted are not the rule. Thev are the very rare exception.

Fwiw...i have no issues with the young Luxembourg Royal women wearing MT's hand me downs...if they are happy to do so.

No it is not the rule, but using the wearing of haute couture from their mother (in law) as "proof" of María Teresa being a controlling mum is nonsense.

I remember seeing a picture of Princess Mabel with the late Prince Friso wearing Princess Beatrix's engagement dress , so this wearing of a previous generations dress can also be a sign of respect / affection . Basing an assessment of GD MT character on the re-wearing of couture garments seems a little wide of the mark .

Princess Marie Astrid wore her late Mother's haute couture dresses for one of her Children 's Wedding.

This is out of topic but I am sure Marie Astrid , Jean , Margaretha and Guillaume must be sad about what arrived in their Court and on the first pages of the Press in Luxembourg

It is quite usual that mothers become emotional, seeing a child married.
Come on...

Yay , that's the picture , I loved it . Just goes to show that buying quality always pays . Sorry that this is not really on the topic . I do hope that the situation in Luxembourg is resolved soon , I have always felt that the GD, and GDss have a strong relationship , hopefully once the stress involved in micro -managing,[ which it appears the GDss has been doing ], the daily life of the household is removed the GDss will be even more effective in her charity endeavour's .
