  10. De vader is 96 jaar geworden, dan moet je je gelukkig prijzen dat hij zolang leefde.

  11. Mais les parents étaient déjà âgés quand elle est née! Peu de tenue pour une future grande duchesse malgré le chagrin et que dire de son mari !

  12. Vero sorry for Stephanie, but as this is a fashion blog, I dare say, her jacket is awful..

    1. You are right - this jacket is about 2 sizes too small. I have never read a bad comment in this blog about Stephanie personally, everyone seems to like and respect her, but her fashion style is very erratic and it has been criticized.
      We are all sorry for her loss.

    2. I don't think it is time right now to talk about Stephanie fashion style right now.

    3. No doubt, sorry for her loss. But, as usual, the jacket is todo tight, the skirt too short. And IMO, the veil is awful. On the other hand, I think the couple (G&S) has put on some extra kilos in the last years which ages them, specially Guillaume, and isn't healthy at all.

  13. Very sad - I hope she is okay. Nice to see some her in-laws were able to attend and support her.

    I noticed the jacket as well - I think she just doesn't buy well for her size and doesn't have an eye for what suits her. The veil was worn by all the women in the principal mourning party so was obviously part of the dress code.

    What I did find a bit odd was a photo I saw on another site of Princess Alexandra with her father and brother, Louis. She was wearing trousers and a scarf - which I thought was strange given that the women of the De Lannoy family were veiled and the men were in tailcoats.

    Anyway, not important really - the clothes change neither the feelings of the affected nor the purpose of the occasion.
