HGD Guillaume's 18th Birthday: December 11, 1999

Here are some photos from the 18th birthday celebration of HRH Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg. His birthday was celebrated in this castle, sorry forgot the name and where it was:

Party goes enjoying the celebration, sorry I have no idea what is with the wearing all white or the pot. I don't see the Hereditary Grand Duke in the photo either.

Family members (his aunts) arriving.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and her two oldest sons: HRH Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg.

A family photo to mark the occassion:

Three Generations of Grand Dukes of Luxembourg:

Past - Grand Duke Jean
Present - Grand Duke Henri I
Future - Grand Duke Guillaume V

Grandfather and Grandson

Last photo I have of this day (11-11-1999)

Father & Son

4. Hered. GD Maria Teresa with her two eldest sons Guillaume (left/18) and Felix (right/16)
5. the proud parents with birthday child Guillaume
6. as you see on this image, the whole party had a medieval air

Thanks for the translation CarrieCooldge. I heard it on TV in 2000 but never found the text on the web.:)

Pictures of Prince Guillaume at his 18th birthday on 11th December 1999

Here are some pictures of Guillaume reaching the age of majority (18 years) on 11th December 1999. I've read somewhere that Grand Duke Jean was waiting until Guillaume had more than 18 years before he declared his abdication. Prince Guillaume was only 19 years old as he became Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg!
