Yes, April 16. That is why there are pics of both of them celebrating their birthdays at the same time.

@bad_barbarella: The Royal family is in deep grief for six weeks and thus there is rarely some news during that time. The only information from the Grand Ducal family was the information that Grand Duke Henri planned a participation on the EU referrendum in next June and this caused quite a stir in the parliament as I wrote in the thread symbols and functions. With the argument that the Grand Duke doesn't have the rights to particpate at any vote and there is hardly any time to change the laws before the respective date, and thus the suggestion of GD Henri was cancelled by the parliament.:(

Top work, msfroyste! You're a star! There are two pics I've never seen before, which look like they were taken on National Day... there's the one of Guillaume and Felix looking vaguely amused, walking away from a wreath and one of Felix chatting with someone (?)

i've posted more in the photo gallery. btw, in case anyone's curious as to why i'm posting some pics there, it's b/c of the risk that they could've already been posted somewhere in this sub-forum and b/c of the fact that most of the are about previously covered subjects, such as felix's icky facial hair, although the pics i came across of him with it are rather nice, hehehehhe. anyway, i hope everyone enjoys the "new" ones. hehe. and i'll continue to post more as i get them.

The GD still will attend today's ceremony marking 60 years since the liberation of the Nazis' Auschwitz death camp?

Old news: GD visit from 8/11/2004

Some more photos from the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp. Some of these I have posted in the Queen Beatrix thread. From Corbis and Getty Images.

No, only M-T and Henri went. They were the sole 'royal' representatives for Luxembourg.

I have bought a book published in homage to Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte with 150 great photos and some interesting reports about her life.:)

1 euro of the book price was going to a charity for cancer.

to answer gaggle's question, the 6wk mourning period started when she died- i'm assuming this- and 6wks is a bit longer than a month, so i'd say it could be over next week. to answer bad's question, a rough translation is homage to grand duchess josephine-charlotte or grand duchess josephine-charlotte: a homage.
