1) Grand duchess and Japanese Princess Hisako who has chosen "Kimono" that it is the clothes of tradition of Japan in Kanazawa, Japan.

4) The grand duchess stayed at this store for about 1 hour with Japanese The late Prince Takamado and his wihe Princess Hisako. She asked a question eagerly about the kimono in this store. And she purchased the kimono.

This is from a link at Netty's Message board about Josephine-Charlotte's health. Unfortunately, I don't understand it. :( Maybe someone can help us out with it.

Revue Luxembourg Press

Geehrt
Großherzogin Joséphine-Charlotte war Ehrengast auf dem Galakonzert der Hilfsorganisation «SOS-Interfonds» mit der bekannten Pianistin Martha Argerich im Großen Theater. Nach einer längeren, krankheitsbedingten Abwesen-heit von der nationalen Bühne war es zum ersten Mal, dass die Großherzogin wieder in die Öffentlichkeit trat. Der Erlös der Benefizveranstaltung fließt einem Kinderhilfsprojekt in Venezuela zu.

Okay here goes: ( trying my best )
Grand- Duchess Josephine-Charlotte was the guest of honour at a gala concert ( which benefits the SOS Interfonds organization ) that featured wellknown pianist Martha Argerich at the Grand Theatre. It was the first time after a long absence due to illness that the Grand Duchess was seen again in public again. The proceeds of the concert will go towards a project that helps children in Venezuela..

On the Benelux MB off GREMB they said something of GD JC being in remission? from lung cancer.

Interesting ... to get a whiff of some rumours that abounded around the time Jean and Joséphine-Charlottewere wedded - that he loved some-one else, and she some-one else as well.

At the time they were wedded, it is speculated that she was in love with a Belgian tennis player athlete. Was he at Wimbledon?

Apparently Jean was involved with an American opera singer.

In old world Europe, just climbing out of the second world war, those connections must have just been horrendous for the conservative society of Belgium and more especially that of Luxembourg.

It is suggested that King Leopold III of Belgium got his daughter Princess Joséphine-Charlotte to marry the hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg in order to strenghten and to maintain the prestige of the Belgian royal house. On the other hand, credits for arranging the joining of Joséphine-Charlotte and Jean apparently belong to Queen Elisabeth of Belgium and the Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg, given that in those days, it was still normal (and still is normal among the earls and counts) that royalty married royalty.

Now, I gather that despite the misgivings at the altar of Joséphine-Charlotte (who was apparently in tears) and Jean, their marriage became a resounding success.

I wish her all the best so with an early recovery.
I hope she would fight this illness and live a healthy lifestyle again.
That's one cause of diseases, living an unhealthy lifestyle.

She does have a strong character, but you also need a lot of luck I'm afraid....

I really hope she recovers, I like her very much and it's sad to see her so ill.

She didn't go to Alexandra's confirmation. She did go to Jean's baptism, though.
