Grand Duke Henri observed the 65th anniversary of Commemoratiounsdag, which is where Luxembourg had to answer so-called status questions asked by the Nazi regime:

Is this the first time Prince Andrew has met with the Grand Duke? What was the meeting about?

I'm sure they have met many times before.

The Duke of York was in Luxembourg in his capacity as the UK's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment. He had a full round of engagements which is the reason why The Grand Duke received him.

The Duke of York's website has more info than was released by the Grand Ducal Court. Visit here and scroll down to 28 September.

You might be shocked to find that we aren't the only ones who think our Grand Ducal Family is attractive. It was on my favorite blog yesterday that Henri had made Hottest Heads of States top 10. No big deal. This morning Wort actually covered it I hope the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess see Wort today. I'm sure it'll be a good laugh for them.

Yes, he has a certain look of youth that he hasn't lost over the years. Maybe because he is slim.

But do they mean hottest like good-looking or hottest like "who's in and/or most talked about"? Either way GD Henri should be on the list at around the place he got

If it's good looking I would think certain names would be replaces.. (look at no 72 for example). But then I guess what's beautiful for some isn't beautiful for others. Although GD Henri would be handsome in everyone's eyes

Henri would actually be at no 3 if they just went for head of states as they list is called but throughout they mixes head of state with head of goverment. The PM of Ukraine and the PM of Norway are not head of states

The list was ranking hot as in good looking. I think that Norway and Congo definitely aren't as hot as Henri. Still I thought it was funny.

Henri has classic good looks that have not changed over the years. There may be a deeper wrinkle here and there, but overall, he has a very young looking face and carries his clothes well, no middle age paunch, etc.

He looks nice for his age, or any age.

The Grand Duchess is attending a charity fashion show this evening in Neumnster Abbey to benefit the Red Cross. The spring collection of Natan will be presented.

She looks better than during the Irish state visit (where she looked good). Nice to see that the recovery is going well :)

Iol I was only joking by jumping on the 'models are too skinny' band wagon (since a famous designer recently slammed "fat women sitting on the couch eating chips" and complaining about skinny models). They were really nice dresses & for a good cause too. I didn't know the GD was president of the Luxembourg Red Cross
