Cute couple indeed. I'm looking forward to their wedding!
Here is a translation. All mistakes are mine :
Interviewer: Alix, Guillaume, how did you two met ?
Guillaume : We had already met six or seven years ago in Belgium... But we really "met" in summer 2010 when Alix moved to Paris and I came back from a motorbike trip on the Silk Road.
Alix : We then met through friends we had in common. It was quite amusing, because, you really looked like a traveler back from faraway countries after living quite an adventure there !
I: So magic worked then ?
G: Yes, magic worked ! We took some time to really know each other well and a few months later, our love story really began.
I: We must say at this point you (Alix
) are living in Brazil, not in Belgium.
A: It's true for the time being. I moved there three years ago. I lived in Belgium and also some time in Paris before. But I grew up in Belgium.
I: And what do you do for a living?
A: I work in jewelry. It has always been a passion for me. I'm currently working for Brazilian jeweller H. Stern.
I: So Guillaume, are you going to move to Brazil with her ?
G: I already did ! I moved to Brazil in November 2015. I look for work there and also learn to speak Portuguese for the last seven months.
I: When you are in Brazil or Belgium and introducing yourself as 'Princess Alice de Ligne', how do people react ?
A: Usually they smile and are quite intrigued at first. And then after chatting a bit, they see I lead a very normal life. But it's true the first reaction is being intrigued!
I Does it create a distance sometimes ?
A: It can sometimes. But I'm always happy to chat with people and explaining my family story, our country and the role my family played there. I grew up like everyone else, with friends from very different backgrounds.
I: And you want to get married here in Beloeil.
A: Yes. I always knew I wanted to marry here. This is where I grew up, in my home. And it's a place made for it ! So we are both happy to be able to have this big day here. It's always important for me to come home here, to see my family. We (Guillaume and herself)
are very close, very understanding of each other. We share the same values and I think it's a very important thing for any couple, having many things in common.
G: We share the same viewpoints so there are no misunderstandings between us.
I: Which aspects attracted you in each other ?
A: For me it was Guillaume's force, his stability. Everything I wanted to find in a man.
I: And concerning Alix ? (to Guillaume)
G: (makes a gesture to Alix
) Alix herself !
I: So you really found your fairytale princess ?
G: Well, I won't say we are living in a fairytale but I definitely found my Princess. (laughs
