Mstislav Rostropovich, the great Russian-Azerbaijanian cellist and a close friend of the GD Jean, has passed away. This edition of Place Royal has a wonderful clip of them meeting last November in Luxembourg.

I believe the old Grand Duke attended Laval University before joining the British Army in WWII. The doctorate probably honors him for his long service to Luxembourg.

As I noted in that thread, GD Jean is looking very frail.

Does anyone know if he has been ill?

In Niederfeulen sports center, the Grand Duke Jean attended the presentation of the souvenir-book (not sure if I translated that correctly) as part of the commemoration of 125th anniversary of the founding of the National Federation of Firefighters.

Good to see GD Jean up and about. He seems to be doing well. Being active, not just staying cooped up in that palace, should be good for him.
