Nice party. I wonder what was the occasion?
The occasion was a belated celebration of Henri becoming the Grand Duke after his father abdicated. There was a formal ceremony at which Grand Duke Jean abdicated and (then) Hereditary Grand Duke Henri was coronated(?). I can't be specific about the timeline but a few months(?) later all the crown princes and crown princesses were invited to celebrate with Henri, his wife and their children.
