This is a lovely portrait and Grand Duke Jean is looking so well for 97! A generation made of very strong stuff indeed.

Always nice if a family picture is released. Although I feel a bit bas for Louis that his sons weren't there. In addition, I am a bit surprised that the court combines ' Her Imperial and Royal Higness' with the title of 'countess' for Marie- Christine. Isn't the HIRH attached to her being an archduchess? Or is this a perfectly fine and normal use?

It would be lovely if all his descendants and their spouses were present.

Since she has married she is a Countess of Limburg-Stirum but remains and Hi / RH. See for example Fürstin mathilde of Waldburg-Zeil,. n´üee Duchess of Württemberg sho is also still a HRH or her mopther.-in-law and born Princess f Bavaria.

Yes, I found it surprising how few of the grandkids of jean were there. At the very least I woukd have expected all of Henri's kids and grandkids to be there.

Also for another example, the Hereditary Princess of Liechtenstein maintains her HRH style whereas her husband is a HSH, my understanding is is uaul to keep a higher style but use a husbands title in its feminine form.

I thought in most cases they would keep their higher title along with their husband's title but probably that practice is mainly used when they marry non-nobles. I had indeed noticed this practice with Sophie but those titles seemed more equal (both highness although one royal and one serene) than archduchess and countess. For example, it seems that HSH princess Alexandra of S-W-B wasn't known as HSH countess of P & K-E but as HSH princess Alexandra of S-W-B, countess of P & K-E.

It would be but as it is not a milestone birthday I understand that not all his children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren joined.

Had he been with Gabriella and Victoria I am sure he would have been included in the picture as a fiancé (and greatnephew of Jean). So, the most likely scenario is that they aren't together any longer. I don't think they have been spotted together after the rather awkward pictures taken soon after Victoria's birth.

Wonderful family photo.

Yeah... I agree with Biri. It would have been nicer with more family members.
I understand it's difficult to gather such a large family together and it's not a milestone birthday but how often does someone turn 98?!

Maybe the photo was taken after the holidays when most folks return to work/school?

On a side note, I do appreciate Japan's IHA being extra and always stating when photos/video were taken. Hehehe.

Nice to see the photo, though like others here I do wish the others were there as it seems like the photo is lacking in family members! It's a shame that Louis's sons weren't included, though IIRC they're still on holiday with Tessy in Switzerland at the moment. I wonder why Amalia and Liam weren't there.

Because their parents weren't there either I suppose

Jean's greatgrandchildren by Imre and Christoph also weren't there. Only 2 of his 5 children were present (although Guillaume's wife and daughter were present; as were Marie-Astrid's daughters and youngest son).
