I believe this is what it says on his Wikipedia page. And we all know how 'reliable' Wikipedia is!

As I've said before elsewhere, I'm amazed how the Luxembourg family manages to stay out of the media glare. What a big difference compared to some of the other RFs! Nice for them of course, but for us poor fans...

I do agree that wikipedia isn't reliable but I brought up the whole architecture thing because on monarchy.lu on Guillaume's page it only has information up until 2005. I was thinking that perhaps Felix's page was the same and has been doing something different in the last 3 years.

Felix's page has been updated in the last year on the offical website. earlier on that page it did say something about architecture but later when I checked it talked about him working for the Swiss Company. So it is anyone's guess what he actually does!

^Yes. . . so ironic! If Prince William sneezes the whole world knows about it; but as for Felix, we don't even know for sure what his occupation is!!

Haha, it's so true. But I would take the official website's word on what he's doing over Wikipedia. While I really appreciate that Felix and his siblings aren't so publicly exposed, sometimes it's a bit frustrating because you don't get to know anything (literally anything) about them while Prince William or Prince William can't do anything without getting their face plastered over a tabloid or newspaper.

even here in Luxembourg we know nothing about what they do... I never ever heard anything about any of the prince's occupations... (except maybe Louis after he got married)

I agree - I am glad for the Grand Ducal family's sake that they are able to avoid the ridiculous levels of media/press attention that the Wales family are subjected to, but it does still sometimes get a bit maddening when we don't have the least idea as to where Felix is and what he's doing!!

In regards to his work, you're right - I'd sooner trust the official website of the royal family than I would Wikipedia.

Thanks kyansaunt! I did not know his page was updated. I can see Prince Felix being more of a business man than an architect for some reason.

Yes -- the "organising major sports and cultural events" would appear to be right up his alley!

^That's Princess Maria Annunciata of Liechtenstein. She's Felix's cousin. Her mother is Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg and Liechtenstein, who is GD Henri's sister I believe. She's very pretty, and I think she looks kinda like Felix.

I agree! For a split second I had a sort of brain snap and thought "Oh, is she his sister. . . " then I realised no, of COURSE she isn't, she isn't Alexandra. . . Oh dear. . .

No, he would be heir presumptive.

Assumed. As in it's thought to be but is not official. As in, I don't PRESUME to know everything.

An "heir presumptive" is someone who is officially the next in line, but who can be "deposed" if someone "more fit" turns up. In this case, Felix would be heir presumptive, because as soon as Guillaume gets a son, this son becomes the irrevocable first in line, or "heir apparent". I don't think girls have a position in the line of succession in Luxembourg. And I also don't think an "heir presumptive" gets the title of "Hereditary Grand Duke".
