Sorry, it is perhabs old stuff but I think it hasn't been posted here:


His Royal Highness The Grand Duke Henri Visits the Galapagos Islands ( February 2001 during fuel spill)
During his stay in the Galapagos Islands, The Grand Duke of Luxembourg expressed his concern; "When I first heard of it on the 18th or 19th of January it was an enormous shock, not only for myself, but for the whole international community. I hope very much that the spill will alarm not only the Ecuadorian authority but also the international community that prevention has to be done to avoid this kind of catastrophe again. Not only in oil but in many other ways."



PS: I have found a nice picture of Grand Duke Henri on the Galapagos images and I will try to scan it so that I can post it here.

Moreover, if there is someone here who has got his/her hands on it, could that someone tell what's in it...?

@gaggleofcrazypeople and @lisamaria:

The book Henri Grand-Duc 50 who was published after Grand Duke Henri's has 110 pages. The main attention is directed to many beautiful pictures. Furthermore the book explains the life and the functions of the Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg; the birth and the childhood in Betzdorf - the engagement, the wedding and happy family life- his years as "Lieutnant-représentant" (1989- 2000)- the throne achievement in 2000 - the "Joyeuses Entrées" in 2000- his functions as Grand Duke and finally his 50th anniversary with pics which have been published here already.

Because most of the pics are on two pages and it's in a format of a book and not a magazine it is rather difficult to scan some pictures.

I will try to photograph and download them in the computer which is certainly more easy and the pics are without a shadow due to the book format.

If my crappy French skills are correct there was a gala on the 7th, according to the link provided by Virnabrisa2000. I've not seen any pictures, though.

For those who have never been in Luxembourg, there were also many spectacular views from the town, like from the Klostergarten and Grund. The town has very much a feeling of a small German town, all pretty and well-kept. But also, I heard they have the largest number of bars per capita there. And cheap booze...

What a cute picture. Maria Teresa seems to like fur- it's around her collar there, and her wedding dress was trimmed in fur, and I know I've seen other photos with her in fur coats and stoles.
