Ladies and gentlemen, the sisterhood of the travelling clothes is baaaack! (And with a new member at that!) But first, if you don't know the first six parts of this series about the clothes sharing love of the Luxembourg and Liechtenstein families (and their relatives), make sure to check out volumes 1 to 6 here, here, here, here, here and, oh, here.
So, let's give a warm welcome to Princess Marie-Gabrielle, the latest member of the sisterhood of the travelling [[insert clothing item of you choice here]]. The daughter of Prince Jean and his first wife Hélène Vestur wore a coat previously worn by her cousin Princess Alexandra (for a church service in 2014) for the 95th birthday celebrations of their apapa, Grand Duke Jean. However, it is not Princess Alexandra the coat originates with but her mother. Grand Duchess Maria Teressa, when she was still Maria Teresa Mestre, wore the coat when arriving to the Grand Duchy prior to her wedding. (Also, hat tip to Grand Duke Henri for sneaking in not once but twice!)
The next one is a bit harder to make out as neither picture is super clear but it still seems that Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie wore the same fur wrap with fringed edges to the water pageant and dinner of the Dutch investiture back in 2013 as her mother-in-law, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, did on a state visit to Belgium in 2007.
The third strike to complete the seventh edition of Royal Recycling and Clothes Sharing comes from two very familiar faces to this series: Archduchess Marie-Astrid and her oldest daughter, Archduchess Marie-Christine (with both their husbands conveniently cropped out of the pictures. Je suis désolé, messieurs.) The poncho-style coat worn by Archduchess Marie-Astrid for the civil wedding of her second son Christoph in 2012 was reworn by her daughter to a movie screening last year.
