A few questions and answers from a 2002 Hello magazine interview with Maria Teresa.

How did you meet Grand Duke Henri?
"He went to study Political Science in Geneva and stayed at the house of a family who were close friends both of his parents and of my parents.  Javier, the family's eldest son, was a great friend of mine, who knew that I was about to start the same course.  One day he said to me: "We have a special guest coming this September. He's going to start at the university and he'll be a little bit lost.  It would be great if you could help him with all the paperwork, hang out with him...'  I said, "A special guest?  Who are you talking about?'  He replied, "It's the Hereditary Grand Duke Of Luxembourg."

"The first time I saw my husband my heart skipped a beat.  I began to hang out with him and help him at University.  The result was we fell in love and went out together for five years.  It was kept absolutely secret - from our friends, our parents, the whole world.  My parents had him round for dinner every evening, but it was a complete secret.  That's why when our engagement was announced, no one here (in Luxembourg) was expecting it in the slightest."

It can't be easy being a Grand Duchess?
"It is without doubt a demanding life, harder than one would imagine.  It requires great personal discipline.  I think someone in this position has to have a strong personality to carry out their obligations."

Well I guess she needed a strong personality to deal with her MIL . . I'm not sure about her sentiments - I think anyone in that position needs to be very self confident and assertive in their own way and not be a shy retiring person who cannot deal with the attention and meet and greet workload.  I can think of several royal wives who are less exuberant than MT but are successful in their roles.

I think she handled her MIL very well all things considered, noone knew their relationship was that strained until her death. MT made sure nothing leaked on that regard, then, she did that press conference, and in a polite way told her side of the story, her husband by her side and that was it.

You go, girl!  Champagne
