I remember in the video of Prince Amedeo's 18th birthday party, they showed a clip of Guillaume having a nice chat with Pierre. I didn't realize the families were that close either.

100th anniversary of death of Grand Duke Adolph

Sixth Generation on the traces of the dynasty founder

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume participated on the opening of the memorations in "Weilburg an der Lahn".

In Weilburg an der Lahn (or on the Lahn in English ) the memoration for Grand Duke Adolph's 100th anniversary of death have started yesterday (note: Thursday ). There is the main castle of the Luxembourgish sovereign from the line of Nassau-Weilburg who achieved the throne on 17th November 1890. Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume was present as the sixth generation of Luxembourg's dynasty.


1) Hereditary GD Guillaume finished his visit by signing the Golden book of Weilburg
2) traditional and colourful reception at the markt place from the mayor and the civil garde of Weilburg
3) Hereditary GD Guillaume and mayor Hans-Peter Schick in Weilburg castle. It is one of the cultural monuments of Hesse.

Text and (scanned!) pics from Luxemburger Wort!

He was wearing a very nicely tailored suit. He looks much thinner than at the enthronment.

Another pic of Guillaume at the enthronement

He seems to be in that for some young adults very awkward place - beyond immaturity of the teenager but not yet the maturity of the adult.

I guess that's what happens when you're a young person in such a pressure-filled position. I'm sure he'll find his identity and strength in time.

But he has always seemed very adult-like to me.

I think he's started getting rid of the Freshman weight and that's why he's looking a lot thinner lately. Pretty much everyone I know put on a decent amount of weight their freshamn year of college and weren't able to lose it until after they graduated. Or they lost some when they'd come home for holidays or the summer. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what he's going through.

Maybe he just wants to lose weight and look better for his public image - there are all of those girls to keep happy!:p

I can't say what grevvinan meant, but what I meant was that he was leaving his youth behind, in a way, to look more mature.

Like his appearance was one of a maturing young man, not that his image wasn't mature even at a young age.

Hello, all - especially the Australian ladies - I've just picked up a copy of the Australian Women's Weekly which has a section on eligible princes including Guillaume! It has a cute picture and a little bit of a bio... Just thought you might like to know!! :)

They both have dark hair and similarly shaped jawlines but otherwise...sorry, I don't think they look much alike.

i think there are some slight similarities; around the eyes, coloring, noses, ears, and hair. that's about all i can see that they have in common.

That's what I saw when I said slightly. I tried to get shots from the same angles so it would be easier to see the small similarities.

When I first was learning about them, I thought they looked alike. But now that they have gotten older and are photographed more, I can see alot of differences. In fact, I now think they look nothing alike.

Those are the only pics I've seen of them together at the enthornment.

So have I. That is why I think it is a bit odd that there were only photographed together twice at the enthronment. There are tons of photos of them not together at the enthronment.
