Let’s check in with the over-the-baby-moon family in Luxembourg. On September 19, Prince Charles was christened at the Abbey of St. Maurice and St. Maurus of Clervaux in Clervaux, Luxembourg, and many, many beaming family members were in attendance. The godparents were Guillaume’s brother, Prince Louis, and Stephanie’s sister, Countess Gaëlle de Lannoy. Masks were donned for the ceremony, but the family photos outside let us see everyone’s faces before the event.
Let’s just start with the star of the show – Mr. Cheeks himself – showing off the heirloom gown also worn by his grandfather, Grand Duke Henri.
Mom’s earring game is right on point, too.
The talented UFOnomore folks have tentatively identified Stephanie’s brilliant yellow as a Paula Ke design. I most certainly didn’t expect her to let go of her son to let us see the dress – from what I can tell it seems to be a cheery frock for a happy event.

Yellow was the theme of the the day. Princess Claire and her daughter Amalia were both in the color, Claire in Zimmermann and Amalia in Jacadi. Little Liam, Claire and Felix’s son, was also wearing Jacadi shoes. I’m a bit obsessed with Claire’s Aquazurra shoes. Pa, Prince Felix, looks very well himself. Godparent Prince Louis is in the family grouping too.

Maria Teresa is wearing a white suit with a pink shell, and was accompanied by two handsome escorts. Henri is his dapper self and poor Sebastian has a cast for an unknown injury.
Quite the sharp Giorgio Armani clutch, MT!
We don’t often see members of the Lannoy family, so let’s take this opportunity to peek into the lives of private Belgian aristocrats while we can. Stephanie is the youngest of eight siblings. She has four brothers (Jehan, Christian, Amaury and Olivier) and three sisters (Nathalie, Gaëlle and Isabelle).
Godparent and sister Gaëlle is shown on the right below.
Her sister Isabelle and her family are shown below.

Brother (Count) Oliver and his wife and two sons.
Brother (Count) Jehan, his wife Beatrice, and children. I am just loving her dress.
Whew – I am off to rest my fingers after that roll call. You tell us your thoughts.
