2 crown princes? I don't get that at all. But chances are that he will not take the trone until he is around his father's age and has a big family.

That must be a mistake - you just can't have two crown princes!

Ladies - there's a poll, "Who is your favourite European heir to the throne?" in the Royal Chit Chat sub-forum and - horror - Guillaume is coming last! Cast your votes, if you please...

I think that Guillaume is not ready to take his father place. Guillaume is in the middle of his training as crown prince

Well, it takes time. His father didn't become a Grand Duke until he had raised a family.

Well the Grand Duke isn't really old compared to other Queens and Kings^__^ i think he will be on the throne for a long while....so Guillaume probably won't succeed to the throne at a young age unless the Grand Duke abdicates...

I think the only way Louis is going to make it to the throne is if Guillaume and Felix really screw up or they both die without a male heir.

And lets hope that doesn't happen. I think Guillaume is obviously more prepared. I don't think taking the throne has even entered Louis's mind.

Thumbs up

I am sure the siblings of a Grand Duke are given some responsibilties in running the state. Although what they are is up to the Grand Duke and themselves. I can see Alexandra doing a lot of humanitarian work or something.

They do live more "normal" lives but if they don't want to live a more normal life it is up to them to make it not normal.:)
