:previous: She is a lovely young woman and, as seen last year, is not always wearing ultra conservative clothes that are too old for her. (But the hat is odd, or more correctly, placed in an odd manner . . . nah, it's just odd) :ermm:

Yes I agree, I also found it unusual that Stephanie has only just had her first solo engagement. I wonder why she has left it late - perhaps she didn't feel confident enough on her own in the past, but now feels that she's ready.

That aside, she looks lovely!

If you read the article, you will see that it is nothing unusual.

Her mother-in-law also did not have many solo engagement early on into her marriage from what I can gather.

She doesn't hold the record, however. That would be Letizia at 2 1/2 year wait, with Mette-Marit the champ at 3 1/2.:cool:

Meanwhile Stephanie has also completely mastered the difficult dialect of her new country in less than two years. Princess Charlene of Monaco still cannot manage French after a decade and for that matter I don't believe Catherine Duchess of Cambridge can speak the language of the principality whose name she will bear someday...Welsh, even though she married over three years ago.

Anyway, great article Sydney...thank you;)!

Bravo, Stephanie! :flowers: Well done. Not an easy skill set to master imo.

I think she went through a really tough time after here marriage, she was grieving the death of her mother just right before her marriage and in reading about her family, she was very close to her. With that, and trying to find her way in her new position in her marriage, she has had to develop more self confidence to get out there. She looks great and it is nice to see that maybe finally she is coming into her own with is new life. I have always liked her, she is a very beautiful lady and sometimes her choice of clothing leaves me shaking my head, yet she is coming out and learning to do what is important.

Letitzia and mette marit were busy deliverying heirs at two years

Moonmaiden23 10-22-2014 11:49 PM

No, Mette-Marit was not busy delivering heirs at two years. She was living in London with Haakon as a student for her first couple of years as a Royal and some Norwegians were not thrilled. She returned to Oslo full time upon the announcement of her first pregnancy with Ingrid-Alexandra. I-A wasn't born until January 2004.

As for Letizia, the Court announced her solo calendar for the first time late in 2006, after she had also been married 2 1/2 years and was pregnant with Sofia. BTW, up till then there had been just as much sniping online about her lack of solo appearances as there has been with Stephanie.

In any case, the business of producing heirs does not preclude solo engagements. Many Royal women past and present have managed both.

Stephanie speaks Luxembourgish?

Moonmaiden23 10-23-2014 12:53 AM

Yes, quite fluently now. She granted a sit down interview last summer completely in Luxembourgish. I am certain there is a transcript of it over at Luxurazzi, and perhaps even some video.

I love seeing her out and about.:flowers:

Good on her ! She is really lovely and likeable !

Olyashka 04-24-2015 04:14 AM

I got here after accidentally stumbling upon some blogs with people insulting her fashion style and having no baby yet. It was painful to read.

I like Stéphanie. For me, her style is classicaly elegant. I would be very glad if she won't change. Also, I hope she won't be criticised for not having a baby yet. This "blackmailing" and pressuring of her to conceive reminds me of Queen Fabiola of Belgium's.

Agree, maybe she is not so brilliant fashionista like other princesses but she's clearly an individual. While talking about baby, I think we could not judge anyone especially not having any information on this subject.

Moonmaiden23 04-24-2015 10:29 AM

Stephanie has her good days fashion wise, and she has bad days. Some of them very bad indeed.

But the idea of anyone-particularly the idea of a woman-mocking another woman for being childless is so ugly and contemptible as to be beyond comprehension. How do we know what's going on? How do we know they haven't been trying?

QueenJen 04-24-2015 10:38 AM

I love Princess Stephanie. Fashion wise- she's like all of us, some good days, and some really bad days. I would love for them to have a baby, but what does that matter? It's between her husband, her and God. If she has a child, or if she never has a child is really none of my business and it certainly doesn't decrease how much I really like this young woman - or her ability to be a fantastic Grand Duchess when that time comes.

I'm on team Stephanie!

Olyashka 04-24-2015 12:25 PM

I agree with everyone of you! After all, real beauty is what the eyes don't see - it's in the heart and mind of that person. But... Stéphanie is already very beautiful physically! Very lucky lady <3
Actually, Henri and MT's Daughters in law are all very beautiful inside and out! Their sons have 20/20 vision!

About the baby... who knows, they might even have more than 5 babies given the fact she and Guillaume come from big families! And how good-looking those babies would look like I am already imagining - their parents are heavenly-looking themselves!

Oh if you only saw those trash talk those people were doing... you could just say they're so bored with their lives that they have the nerve to judge her soo unfairly. It's as if they could do better than Stéphanie~

Anyway, I'm very happy with how she is able to master Letzeburgesch. (I'm sure she has become better! Very intelligent!)
I looked it up and it absolutely seems to me that even if I become fluent at it, I'd be writing every document I have to make with hundreds of misspelled words!

Moonmaiden23 04-24-2015 12:54 PM

I agree. I see her as highly intelligent, probably not that worldly. Others have said she looks cold/haughty around people of a lower rank but that is garbage. People see what they want, she looks pretty much the same around everyone. Naturally if you are photographed with friends and acquaintances your demeanor will be different. It doesn't mean that you have contempt for the others. Many of the people who post such things are extremely unhappy and bitter about their circumstances in life....it's called PROJECTION in psychological terms.:whistling:

I am hoping we hear happy news from she and Guillaume very soon.
