The British send no one, and neither does Luxembourg. Even Japan sent a representative but the Europeans couldn't make the effort?

There is the closing of the Octave on Sunday morning in Luxembourg. And Guillaume and Stéphanie are leaving to their Trade Trip to China.

Still, they could have sent someone to the Te Deum service on Saturday morning. It would have been a nice gesture. I'm not familiar with the Closing of the Octave celebration though.

I agree, they could have sent the younger son and his wife.

Someone cpould have attended the moring 'E'Vents and the Townhall reception and skip the Banquiet like the spanish Royals.
Or the could have send Guillaume and Sibylla. They are usually not present at the Octave Events.

The Norwegian court has updated their calender. Only Princess Martha Louise and Ari Behn will be attending the celebrations. Presumably the king and queen pulled out because of the tragedy on the west coast of Norway

According to NRK, king Harald, queen Sonja, crown prince Haakon and crown princess Mette-Marit have cancelled their trip to Sweden due to the helicopter crash. The king has asked princess Märtha Louise and Ari Behn to represent Norway.

This has also been updated to the calendar of the norwegian royal family.

At this sort of events (birthdays, baptisms, weddings) we often see "the other family" as well. Think about the Zorreguieta and the d'Udekem d'Acoz families.

Why do you think that the king want to see a crowd of little-known or totally unknown people attending his birthday celebrations?
It's not a state occasion. It's his personal birthday. And we don't know what kind of invitations and for whom he have sent.

The grandmother of Princess Marie-Astrid, Prince Henri, Prince Jean, Princess Margaretha and Prince Guillaume was a Swedish Princess (Queen Astrid of the Belgians). They have never known their grandmother as she died in 1935. So we may assume there is no (special) relationship between the Luxembourgian and Swedish royals.

Last Sunday the Prince and Princess went to the final of the Monte-Carlo Tennis Tournament and honoured winner Rafael Nadal. They regularly do things together. Picture. So it is not that they are always "alone".

I didn't see King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia's names down for the banquet just the Te Deum?

No members of the British RF present is not a big surprise but a little disappointing all the same.

King Juan Carlos and queen Sofia are attending at Te Deum tomorrow morning and probably also to the lunch hosted by the City of Stockholm tomorrow afternoon, there isn't a guest list about that.

No English or lux royals, however a huge Royal turn out nonetheless
Also the spaniards will only participate in the morning events


With my favourites, the norwegian RF and the Greeks not attending, I´m more than disappointed

A week-long celebration of King Carl Gustaf is topped with a banquet Saturday night. Originally it was intended that the whole Norwegian royal family were to arrive Saturday morning, but now it's just Princess Martha Louise and Ari Behn who are representing Norway. The couple will stay with the Swedish Crown Princess Couple at Haga Palace.

Closing of the Octave is the second most important event in Luxembourg (the first being National Day) and happens on the 5th Sunday after Easter. There’s a Mass in the morning and then a Mass, procession, and balcony appearance in the afternoon. Unfortunately, Octave is on May 1st this year and somewhat conflicts with King CG’s birthday celebrations.

With GD Maria Teresa’s fear of flying and the HGD couple going to China, GD Henri would have been the only likely candidate to go. I also wish he could have gone to Friday or early Saturday events.

I’m not sure anyone else would have been sent. Although Prince Felix attended CP Victoria’s wedding, I can't think of any younger or extended grand ducal family member representing Luxembourg at these types of big gatherings aboard.

I'm talking about attendance at European royal events. He has a wife but she barely shows at these kind of things and is missing again.
