I think that it is true. Many people esp. those in their teens and twenties use the internet for fun.

I think Prince Félix has a thing for blondes.
You can see him here. I think it is a rather funny picture.

Cute. Makes me want to invest in some hair dye.

I think in the rest of the pictures in the series for this event it looks like he is watching the person behind the cyclist put the jersey on the cyclist.

I noticed there is a new Felix slide show on youtube this week. It has a few old pics and a couple good ones I hadn't seen before.

Since where in the FAQ forum does anyone know if Felix achieved a degree at any of the universities he studied at?

You know I like blond guys but my favourite are guys like Felix or mmm Guillaume :) Pretty girl so he looks at her. It is not said that only becouse she's blonde. And that's only photo. Funny how many things people could imagine looking only at photo. For example: somebody kiss someone on cheek, but on photo it looks more serious.

I see that we have only brunette here

Does he like reading much?
Oh to that pic where he was looking at a blonde: he looks so cute!
I think he just smiles at them.
We are under the same astrological sign. Wink!

Have there been any Felix sitings in Lausanne? I know that where he works is much closer to Lausanne than to Geneva. Everyone says he lives in Geneva, which is possible, but Lausanne is about 30-40 miles closer to where he works than Geneva.

Anyone with better knowledge than me have a clue?

Thank you for the information Lalla Merien, I want to leave to Geneva when I end profecion of the engineer, hope that he lives in Geneva for when I arrive,

For what Lausanne's city goes out in wikipedia, it has organizations related to the sport great, probably felix if it lives in this city

He works for a sport management company which is based in Morges near Lausanne and Geneva. It also has other offices in Switzerland (ie. Zurich). At least, he worked there in November 2008 when he organized the Festival of Trees and Lights in Luxembourg City based on the similar festival in Geneva. He works in marketing and public relations with this company according to the grand ducal court website.

I'm also off to Geneva in a few months for work/school, but unfortunatley I doubt I'll have time for much exploration. And, as one of my friends says it would literally take the hand of God putting me in the right place at the right time to even see Felix from a distance. Best of luck to you in Geneva.

Until a pregnancy is announced by the Grand Ducal Court, no one is pregnant. Please refrain from speculating until an announcement is made. Any future posts speculating on a pregnancy will be deleted without notice.

According to the official website Felix will be beginning a Master's degree in bioethics beginning in October in Rome.

I do not know what school he will be attending but I do know that he does not speak Italian (at least not to my knowledge nor officially listed) so his program must be in French, German, English or Spanish....anyone know of a place in Rome offering MA in Bioethics in a language other than Italian?

I bet he will attend the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University, the university of the catholic order and mouvement Regnum Christi, whose clergy members are known as Legionaries of Christ. There is a master in ethics in english also at statal Rome universtity, but I think that it has not the prestige to attract a stranger prince (and the course probably starts in september) ; the pontifical university, on the contrary, certify you that you're studying the catholic church point of view and that make a sense of going to Rome. The movement is thought to be quite conservative. And at this point we can't exclude a religious vocation for Felix as this movement is very capable in inspiring such vocations to royals (Paul of Austria, Alexander and Elena of 2 Sicilies, a Lobkowicz, a de Merode,...)
The site of this University is quite bad but I have understood that students can follow the program all over the year or in an intensive way (4 weeks : 1 in October, 1 in November, one in March, one in April for example...I can't remeber the correct months)
Finally: what a delicate topic to study for a Luxemburg prince!!

I'm sure they won't announce where he will study but I'm certain that he doesn't speak Italian, and if he does not well enough for such advanced studies.

It is a delicate topic. I'm surprised. Although, it certainly does imply that he's more than just a pretty face. You definitely have to have some intellect study bioethics. Given his father's stance on euthanasia and the fact that his cousin Archduke Imre is active in the anti-euthanasia community I'm not surprised at the topic just that Felix would be interested. I knew when he cut his hair that he'd made a change in his life, and I guess moving country and staring a advanced degree is a change.

Thanks for looking the info on the schools up. I couldn't find anything.
