Another Belgian to become hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg?

BeNeLux - Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume has stated in his birthday interview that he is happy seriously dating a lovely woman. Royalty investigators at Point de Vue are betting the farm on Stephanie de Lannoy, a noble in Belgium... His own grandmother, nee Princess Josephine Charlotte of Belgium, hailed from this country bordering Luxembourg. Tradition? Or maybe he is just a lucky guy.

Royalty's Ashton and Demi

Or, if they make it, Juliet Mills and Max...

The Danish Crown Princely family in Australia

You have to admire how Enneagram 3 Crown Princess Mary is keeping her Australian ties alive with visits Down Under. This photo was released just before the current official visit.

Inaki Urdangarin denies padding the expense accounts

Another inlaw investigated for padding the expense accounts... As if the King of Spain doesn't have enough problems with his health, now there are investigations into the events management work of his younger daughter's husband, Inaki. Infanta Cristina, Inaki as Duke of Palma da Majorca, and their 4 children are settled in Washington where he works for the Spanish telecom system.

Inaki's situation is similar to that of the husband of Princess Margriet of the Netherlands. Pieter van Vollenhoven basically had difficulty finding a vocation he could love due to his position as consort to the princess. The media were quite merciless - and he ended up in the civil service.

Pippa Middleton + George, Earl Percy = Ross + Rachel

While studying at the University of Edinburgh, Pippa Middleton + George, Earl Percy lived together with Lord Ted Innes Kerr
Enneagram 7 Pippa later dated a slew of eligible men but always went back to George
About 18 months ago, Pippa started dating Alex Loudon.
At the wedding of her sister Kate Middleton to Prince William, Pippa was alleged to be cosy with Prince Harry.
Then Pippa was spotted the rest of the spring with George Percy at tennis, dinner, and on holiday in Madrid.
Boyfriend Alex took exception and demanded a "break".
Pippa and Alex reconciled.
In late September, Pippa and Alex attended a social function where George and Pippa danced passionately on the dance floor.
A few days later, close friends told the press Alex gave Pippa the key to his place on her birthday. Shortly after that came rumours Alex querying about buying Pippa a huge engagement ring.
Then out of left field came news that she called it quits. And she sought solace with sister Duchess Catherine and William.
Over the following weekend, close friends say it was Alex who broke her heart by ending it and that his side never saw her as wife material.
Returning to London was Pippa with George from a weekend at his family castle.
Fergawdsakes, people, enough of the yo-yo-ing. You ain't the cast of Friends.

Pippa Middleton = Not Wife Material

Guess Alex Loudon's family made a big deal of his girlfriend Pippa Middleton dirty dancing with ex Charlie Astor and holidays with another ex George Percy, heir to the Duke of Northumberland...

Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon grew apart, rumoured to argue often, so it was just a matter of time before some pulled the plug Again on their relationship.

Enneagram 7 Pippa will get past this "dumped for not being wife material". Certainly scarlet red is her colour but it would be too much to call the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge a scarlet woman.

The other Prince William is in a long-term relationship with his own version of Catherine

Thirty years ago Valentine's Day, honeymoon baby Prince Guillaume was born to Hereditary Grand Duke Henri and his wife, Maria Teresa of Luxembourg. The other Prince William's parents - Charles and Diana - married in July of that year. The heirs to Luxembourg and the Prince of Wales are very close in age.

And they should get together to talk!

Although both sovereign grandparents are still alive, Elizabeth II still reigns while Grand Duke Jean abdicated ten years ago. William of Wales as heir to the heir can pursue a largely private life while Guillaume takes on a full slate of royal duties.

Romance-wise, Enneagram 9 Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg is playing his cards very close to his chest - guess information on his maybe-fiancee will be given out on a need-to-know basis.

That type of discretion would have saved the now Duchess Catherine a lot of sniping.

(Thanks for Marlene Koenig for the info on this interview)

Remembrance Day

It takes odd decisions like FIFA's to remind us why we honour and respect our military defenders.

Whereas his father, Charles Prince of Wales, is ubiquitous, Enneagram 6 Prince William focuses on a limited number of concerns. As a result of a strategy that suits his personality, his voice when heard has a strong impact.

The Duke of Cambridge is happy with the reversal of the poppy ban, though his office was a tad overboard calling it a victory. Lets give FIFA a way to lick its wounds, shall we?

A downtown London lovenest for WillKat

The Cambridges are moving to Kensington Palace, to an "apartment" across from his childhood home with his father Prince Charles and mother Diana, Princess of Wales, in the same royal complex. It is close enough to everything, including shopping, yet secure enough for protection and privacy (Enneagram 4 Catherine).

Four storeys tall, former home of Princess Margaret and the young Victoria - William can ask his uncle Andrew's ex for more information. Sarah Ferguson (Enneagram 7) would provide and we would hear all about it!

Crown Princess Mary hosts Duchess Catherine - The Lady and The Starlet

In elegant minimalist style, Crown Princess Mary joined her husband, Frederik, in welcoming the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Copenhagen to examine African famine relief efforts.Mary had her own tip-to-toe red and over the top accessories moment earlier on in her public life and has ceded the Starmaker outfits to the newbie on the block, 29 year old Duchess Catherine.

The Duchess could not have chosen a better role model than the mother of 4 Australian Princess Mary, who has been preparing to be the future Queen of Denmark for almost a decade.

And learning Danish at the same time!
In comparing the photos of Mary's learning curve, the 39 year old Crown Princess no longer gives overly-enthused, wide toothed-Hollywood-camera grins on her duties. Instead, her confidence has allowed her to give elegantly restrained smiles. Her attention is on the work of famine relief, and did not want the publicity of the Cambridge visit to overshadow those humanitarian efforts.

Enneagram 3 Crown Princess Mary and Enneagram 6 Duchess Catherine - may we see more of them together.
