In one of my late MIL's notebooks she said Stephanie was a disappointment but didn't say why. Does anyone know how she was a disappointment?

Did your late mother in law pass just after the wedding of Stephanie and Gui, or more recently? If it was around the time of the wedding I don't understand as, although she isn't from Luxembourg originally, Stephanie was a fine match in terms of aristocratic lineage and so on.

If it was more recently then I do understand really, as Stephanie hasn't really extended herself in the way of regular public duties. She hasn't adopted any causes that really need extra publicity, or gone out of her way to implant herself in the hearts and minds of the Luxembourg people. She has been too often MIA at both family events and public ones.  That is in contrast to her mother in law, who projects a very warm and enthusiastic image and has very much thrown herself into the life of her country and its people, as a support to the Grand Duke, her husband.

There is also the matter of the couple's childlessness. If it's not deliberate, and I'm sure it isn't, given their devout Roman Catholicism, then of course it is nobody's fault. However, in their engagement interview Stephanie intimated that the couple would wait for three years before having children. In such an RC country that may have shocked some more conservative folk. The three year limit has come and gone now and there is no sign of a child. I'm sure that is a great disappointment to everyone, including Stephanie and Gui.

Good points @Curryong though I believe that Stephanie has been picking up more engagements in the past year or so. The Court doesn't publish any "tally" but it just seems to me those duties have increased as of 2017. :)

Succession wise, the throne would pass to Guillaume's next brother Felix and his children so the line is secure. However as we've discussed before, if the HGD couple are facing reproductive issues this could put them at odds with their devout Roman Catholic beliefs. :(

This would be a reason why my MIL saw her as a disappointment.     :thanks:

Princess Stephanie visited Beim Engel Art Gallery | Newmyroyals & Hollywood Fashion

 :laugh10:  Now when I look at Stephanie's photos I find myself looking to see if she shows interest or is just pretending.

As far as I can see, what with Lux being such a tiny place with no overseas connextions, like other countries have former colonies, there's perhaps not a lot for Steph to do, until she's Grd Duchess.
