It is possible just do yourself a favour and pretend you know very little about them...

"de"= "of" in French. "Bourbon de Parme" is the French way of saying the title "Borbon and Parma".
I've also seen it hyphenated, as in "Bourbon-Parme". I guess it just depends who's saying it in how it's spelled.
Hope I helped.
Lollies!

Yeah, he was Hereditary Grand Duke Henri until he became Grand Duke in 2000. Then he passed that title on to Guillaume.

Yup...he was the Hereditary Grand Duke when his father became the Grand Duke in 1965, I believe. So, he was even younger than Guillaume when he got that title- about 10 years old.

"On 12th November 1964 The Hereditary Grand Duke acceded to the throne on the Grand Duchess's [Charlotte] abdication in His favour."

When Grand Duke Jean ascended to the throne on November 12th, 1964, Henri became "Hereditary Prince of Luxembourg" and when he reached the age of 18 in 1973 he became the Hereditary Grand Duke (not Prince) of Luxembourg.

In the case of Grand Duke Jean, he was born as Hereditary Prince and when he reached the age of 18, Hereditary Grand Duke.
