Okay, here's a conclusion I came to: mentioning the rumours in his speech, from Henri, A Big Mistake. Instead of making the rumours stop, he really managed to draw everyone's attention to them. A good intention backfired, I'm afraid. But I do like the idea that he protects his entire family, or at least tries to.

In my eyes he did the right thing to comment on the rumours.

I really wish they find the REAL criminals soon so that the rumours on innocent people (such as the Grand Ducal family) will stop...

PS: Happy new year to the whole Grand Ducal family!:)

There are rumours, and then there are rumours; I don't think Henri was commenting the bombing affair - it's just too ridiculous to be true :( To try to put a stop on rumours about infidelity or something like that is, I'm sorry to tell you, just a little too Lady Di to me; somehow those are so trivial someone like him should be above such.

A big year ahead - silver anniversary, MT's 50th, so all the best.

-Lisa :p

This was probably a mistake for him to mention rumors since now all we are talking about are the rumors.

There's pros and cons to him mentioning the rumours. Con; it brought more attention to the rumours so that everyone's suspicious of which one it is exactly that he's talking about. Pro; he usually doesn't comment about rumours. And the fact that he found it important to comment makes it more evident that what ever's being said is un-true and he's offended by it to the point in which he would comment.
So now I think it's time to go on the topics lisamaria listed. Silver anniversary this year, that's awesome.
MT's going to be 50! To me she doesn't look like she should be turning 50, 45 yes, 50 no.

Well, when's the baby due? I forgot a while ago. There will probably be new pics when the baby's born. It shouldn't be too long now.

According to PdV, the baby is due on March 22 which is Maria Teresa's 50th birthday.

The Grand Dukes' youngest child was born on Henri's birthday. So, a baby born on Maria Teresa's 50th birthday would bring a big smile to my face.

Thanks for the pictures, suture.Although i have not been known any about Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte but i'm sure she is a really wonderful lady.It'd be really sad when a person you really close left, it can hurt for really long, like my grandparents, they had been for 45 years and my grandmumhad passed away for four years, but it is always really hurt us till now, especially my grandfather, he has written many poems about my grandmum, i can see that through the family especially Grand Duke Jean, my sympathy for him, and as a great person, i'm sure the Grand Duchess is rest in peace and is smiling to all of us from the heaven.

Yes, Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte were married for 51 years, so I imagine her death must have been a devastating loss for him, as well as the rest of the family. She was a lovely lady and one of my favorite royals- very regal yet very down to earth. :)

Jean looks so incredibly sad in those photos. You can tell that no matter what the rumours were about JC, he loved his wife tremendously and that he still must be reeling from her death.
