Perhaps he is very busy, or stressed-out? I know that when I am either one of those things my appearance isn't exactly a top priority.

Yes, he does like classical music as well as "contemporary" music (I guess that would be modern music?) :)

Portrait of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg

Guillaume, the heir




Guillaume of Luxembourg was born November 11th, 1981 as oldest of five children of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. He was followed 1984 by Prince Félix, 1986 by Prince Louis, 1991 by Princess Alexandra and 1992 the youngest Prince Sébastien (here’s a mistake, they wrote Sebastian – that’s the german version of Sébastien).



After the Abitur, which made Guillaume in Switzerland, he began training in September 2001 as an officer at the royal military academy of Sandhurst in Great Britain. Like his parents the young man engages himself for disadvantaged and handicapped people. Since 2000 he is a chairman of the donation „Kraeizbierg“, which uses itself for handicapped ones. Besides he took the presidency in the „Board OF Economic development“ of his father and engages himself in addition for the pathfinder movement of Luxembourg



Sport and music as Hobbies

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume is a true language talent: Apart from its native language Laetzeburgisch he speaks French, English, German and Spanish. Among his large Hobbies the music ranks. He took some years piano instruction and hears in such a way the monarch not only rock- but also classical music. His spare time spends Guillaume of Luxembourg with the sport. He plays football, tennis, goes swimming, sailing and skiing.

HGD Guillaume: Current Events 5 (August - October 2005)

Welcome to Part 7 of News and Pictures of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume.

The previous thread can be found here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...4&page=1&pp=20.

Please don't follow the opening of this new thread with posts like "Yeah! A new thread!" or "Yeah! The first new thread since Luxembourg got its own forum!" Such posts don't really contribute to any discussion of Guillaume.

Please remember to properly credit sources and stories.

Happy posting! :)

Its odd that this is the first time that it has ever been mentioned that he plays piano. But I have seen an old pic of him playing, so it makes sense.

The violin is the only other one I know about, but there may be others too.

He also plays violin, but his mother plays guitar, so you never know.
