Sebastian plays Rugby on Luxembourg's U18 (under 18) national team. He apparently became an excellent rugby player during his schooling in England which apparently ended in September. He's no different than any other player. He has a completely normal relationship with the team except that his father is the one who presents the trophies Henri was present at his recent success over Croatia in the championships in France.

Luxembourgish. You will find that if you run a German translator on it that it will translate most of the words. You'll be able to get the gist of the article with German.

Articles on Wort will alternate between Luxembourgish and straight German. Luxembourg is Ltzebuerg in Luxembourgish, Luxembourg in French, and Luxemburg in German you will see any of these varieties in Luxembourg and the news sites. When you go to Wort and you click on Ltzebuerg for news in Luxembourg just assume that it's Luxembourgish or German and use a German translator where necessary.

On the first moment I thought it' s German. My uncle who was in Luxembourg said that their language is mixture of French and German.

It is a dialect of High German, however, it is a mixture of German and French with some original words. I read Luxemburger Wort everday in the Ltzebuerg section, and several other local Luxembourg news sources. I'm so used to reading various news from Luxembourg in Luxembourgish it that I can hardly tell the difference in the German and Luxembourgish anymore.....me thinks my German is turning into Luxembourgish (but I won't complain about that).

With the usual English infiltration because apparently "bad hair day" is "bad hair day" in Luxembourgish, too

I actually translated that article from Wort about Sebastian and his rugby several weeks ago. It's here in the Lux section somewhere.

This isn't new news, but it hasn't been posted. I came across this article while surfing the net. It is an article posted by a Catholic Newspaper in Australia from last September.

Wow! Sounds interesting! Was it something connected with charity? Or they were on vacation there?
Thank you so much for information, grim_lady

I think this was strictly vacation-related. There wasn't a lot of fuss about it and there was never a press release. That's part of the reason why I was surprised to find this.

From the articles posted, it comes out very clearly that they were there because of the World Youth Day and not for other purposes... of course that is an experience quite similar to a vacation, because you are with people of your age and you have also a lot of fun and some visiting.
I found very intresting that they travelled with the Legion of Christ, a topic relevant also for actual news about prince Felix.

Why is the Legion of Christ relevant for news about Prince Felix?

I loved Seb's Luxembourg tee shirt.

Because the Legion of Christ has an University in Rome offering a master in Bioethics (the one I presume the prince will take).

Oh yeah, I forgot this. I thought it was to do with travels.

Do you know if this is a 1 year program or a 2 year program. I've looked at the website but I do not read Italian so I cannot tell.

2 years. Is it normal for a master program to have lessons only a day per week?
