Great and unexpected turn-out only prince Sebastién is missing. Anyone any idea what he is currently doing after he finished Sandhurst last year?

That would be princess Alexandra I suppose? Or does prince Sebastién (also) live in Paris - although in that case his absence tonight is unlikely...

Guillaume & Stéphanie live in Luxembourg
Félix & Claire in Geneva (if I am not mistaken - although they probable still spend quite some time in the Provence)
Louis in London
Alexandra in Paris (she apparently turned up as 'one of the Luxembourgers living in France/Paris')
Sebastién in ???

He seems like a cheerful fellow. Maria-Theresa looks both amused and as if she's thinking if they'll ever get inside.

Atleast in Sweden and I think in Denmark the combination of a black suit and a black tie is only worn at funerals so it might not be all that appropriate when receiving guests from those countries .

The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg is a warm and loving person and a great Consort to her husband.

I think that is the case in all countries, but as you can see on pictures of the Élysée, it comes closest to black tie and looks stylish indeed. By the way, when you see stylish gentlemen: nothing beats a modern cut well-tailored black costume, with a crisp white shirt and a skinny black tie.

As a little souvenir, video of the offcial escort during the state visit (including the enormous State procession from the Invalides to the Elysée palace).

And found a very nice video of the cocktail party at the Rodin museum.
