Princess Stephanie, Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, showed off her blossoming baby bump as she joined the likes of Princess Alexandra and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa at the New Year’s reception at the Grand Ducal Palace.
The 38-year-old wife of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume looked stunning in a pale blue floor-length gown with a delicate lace overlay, a V-neck and an empire-line waist. The Seraphine maternity gown retails for £289 and offers pregnant bridesmaids a comfortable fit and new mums secret nursing access to make breastfeeding easier.

Tying in with the soft blue-green colour, Stephanie added a chunky aquamarine necklace, matching drop earrings and a tiara that was just visible above her elegant updo.
Stephanie and Guillaume announced their engagement in April 2012 and tied the knot in a civil ceremony on 19 October 2012, followed by a religious service the following day. Stephanie looked stunning in a lace Elie Saab wedding dress while her attendants rocked bright blue outfits – a much bolder choice than the bridesmaid dress she chose for her latest outing.

Meanwhile, Stephanie's bridesmaid and sister-in-law Princess Alexandra opted for a soft peach dress.
The couple went on to welcome a son called Prince Charles during the pandemic, before announcing they were expecting their second child in September 2022.
