You're right, it does seem like he has lost weight - maybe he has started training? :)

thanks for the pics drimal. i can imagine felix is probably in brussels at school, studying who knows what, and louis is probably at sandhurst??? and guillaume does look like he's lost a few, could've gained them via studying and/or holiday food, he's cute either way, hehe. as for gd jean, he's probably still in mourning. i hope he is doing well.

Unhappy About Lichtenstein

Today I learned from BBC that the Lichtenstein royal family was involved with the Nazis during the WW2 and for example used forced labour (ie. Jews) to work in their estates and other properties; they didn't say for sure, but apparently it's now thought that Hans Adam's rather substantial wealth stinks of stolen money. Luxembourg royals do have connections to that family, but also, they were battered by the Nazis during the war... What do you reckon will this do to the relations of these families?

The Luxembourgs fled to Britain; I don't think they really like the Nazis.

not only does guillaume look like he's lost weight, but so does Maria-Theresa. or maybe it's because in the last two pictures she's wearing black and black tends to make you slimer than you actually are?

The family attended a ceremony April 13, 2005, at the Luxembourg Embassy in London to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the return from exile of Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg, on 13th April 1945.

Also, the family and the Earl of Wessex attended a lunch following the ceremony at the embassy with representatives of the war veterans and members of the Luxembourg community in Great Britain.

News related to the royal family
Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Jean-Claude Juncker, and U.S. President George W. Bush sit during a meeting in the Oval Office April 15, 2005 in Washington, D.C.

Does this mean Luxembourg and the United States are planning a state visit?

Thank ysakuraba for this picture. :) Grand Duchess Maria Teresa looks very chic in her grey suit and oversized hat.

Does anyone know anything about the designers Maria Teresa often wears? Are there Luxembourg fashion houses that she frequents or does she wear foreign designers?

I've heard that she does do some shopping in Luxembourg, but she probabl does shopping elsewhere, too.

Therre are alot of old pics of them in a thread that was solely for pics a while back. But they were babies, so their parents probably didn't want them near the camera too often.

Letzte Aktualisierung: 01-05-2005 18:58 (jm) - Mit der feierlichen Schlussprozession endete an diesem Sonntag die diesjährige Oktave, die unter dem Motto "Wir sind gekommen, ihn anzubeten" stand. An der Schlussprozession nahm die großherzogliche Familie teil, die am Morgen bereits dem Pontifikalamt in der Kathedrale beigewohnt hatte. Zahlreiche Gläubige hatten sich in der Hauptstadt eingefunden, um an der Schlussfeier der Marienwallfahrt teilzunehmen. In den vergangenen zwei Wochen waren mehrere tausend Gläubige aus dem In- und Ausland in die Hauptstadt gepilgert, um der Heiligen Jungfrau zu huldigen.

Thanks for the information and photo. I can't understand most of that. Does anyone know what it means?
