The children of Marie Astrid on the funeral of their grandmother Josephine-Charlotte on 15th January 2005

The children of Princess Marie Astrid, Marie-Christine (21), Imre (19), Christopher (16), Alexander (14) and Gabriella (10) were also present in the funeral procession and the requiem.

-Princess Marie-Christine (eldest daughter of Princess Marie Astrid of Austria) was speaking her prayer in German: Gott, seelige die Kirche, speziell die Kirche in Luxemburg, lass die Kirche ein lebendiges Zeichen deiner Liebe zu den Menschen sein.
Translation: God, bless the church, and especially the church in Luxembourg, let the church be a fervent symbol of your love for human beings.

1. before her prayer in the church
2.to 10. in the funeral procession

PS: I will post tomorrow pictures of Princess Marie Astrid at the funeral.

Princess Marie Astrid and Archduke Carl-Christian of Austria at the funeral

Princess Marie Astrid was in Fischbach for several weeks to look for her very sick mother Josephine-Charlotte and help her in the difficult last weeks of her live!
By the way she had studied for nurse.

That explains why I thought Marie-Astrid looked so exhausted at the funeral. She looked much better in the pictures of the remembrance mass for Josephine-Charlotte yesterday, like she had finally gotten some rest.

Happy birthday Princess Marie Astrid!:) (she has her birthday only one day after Princess Alexandra! )

I have found two interesting reports here:
1. a report in my newspaper which I had cut, than lot and found back last week!:)

2. an interesting report from Corbis:

January 28, 2004 Geneva, Switzerland

EXCLUSIF

Princess Marie-Astrid will be celebrating her 50th birthday in Geneva on February 17 with husband, Christian (Archduke of Austria) who she married on February 6, 1982 and their five children. Her eldest daughter, Marie-Christine (born on July 31, 1983) is a student of economic sciences; her son Imre (born on December 8, 1985) is still at school like her other children, Christophe (born February 2, 1988) and Gabriella (born March 26, 1994). Marie-Christine, the Princess’s eldest daughter, took a year out after her final school exams to visit Christian’s sister, Alexandra, who lives in Chile and looks after the children of prisoners. She also assisted her father in a medical dispensary on the island of Chileo, the largest island in South America.

Marie-Astrid is closely involved with organisations for abandoned children, in particular the association “Tramontane” in Brussels. She is very close to her parents and spent a lot of her free time with her mother, the Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte of Luxembourg, during her serious illness and likewise with her brothers and sisters who she catches up with either abroad or in Geneva. Her husband, Christian is delighted that Marie-Astrid’s grandfather, the Emperor Charles (who died at the age of 35 in exile on the island of Madeira in 1922) is to be beatified. The decree of beatification was signed by Pope John Paul II on December 20, 2003 in a ceremony attended by the Emperor’s four sons – Archduke Otto (91), Felix (87), Charles-Louis (85) and Rodolphe (83). Christian, who is the director of a finance company, has strongly supported his father, Charles Louis and Felix, his uncle, in their negotiations with the Austrian authorities towards the restitution of personal family property that were returned to them in 1935, then confiscated by the Nazis in 1938 who disapproved of the Hapsburg link. Christian has also been assisted by Bill Clinton’s former secretary, Stewart Eizenstat, who has been concentrating on the injustices meted out during the Nazi era. The property in question includes 25,000 hectares of forest, four houses in Vienna and the Laxenburg Palace just outside Vienna. If and when the properties in question are returned to the family, they will be shared out among 150 members of the Hapsburgs.

Portrait of Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg who is due to celebrate her 50th birthday on February 17, 2004.

Here is a link to the page where I found this interesting report and beautiful pictures of February 2004:

Where do Marie-Astrid and her family live and what do she and her husband do? They don't seem to perform very many royal duties or any at all, so they aren't very active royals. Does she have a job?

Each nation was only allowed to have 5 guests maximum at the Pope's funeral, so it's unlikely MA and her family were among the 5 selected by Luxembourg's government.

Yes the whole family does seem rather close. They also seem rather close to their cousins, but they aren't photographed with them often.

Looking from pictures, they are very close! Although, Marie-Astrid and her family live in Brussels, so we only see them together officially on holidays and birthdays.
