By today's standards, royals (even in non-reigning houses, whose rules cannot easily be changed) are considered to be making good and decent marriages when choosing nobles as their spouses. And indeed, many (if not most) members of the nobility can claim at least distant royal ancestry.
I was just wondering about Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie of Luxembourg: what are her exact ties to royalty? That of the common-born Princess Sybilla are well-known: Prince Guillaume's wife seems to be the best-connected person to marry into the grand ducal family, since her mother-in-law.
