Alright, with a very bad online translator this is what I got from that article...

Conclusion pro assignment terminates oktave
Last actualization: 01-05-2005 18:58 (jm) - with the solemn
conclusion pro assignment the oktave of this year on this Sunday,
which are under the slogan "we come, him anzubeten", ended. In the
conclusion pro assignment the grossherzogliche family participated,
which had attended the Pontifikalamt in the cathedral in the morning
already. Numerous Glaeubige had appeared itself in the capital, in
order to participate in the conclusion celebration of the
Marienwallfahrt. In the past two weeks several thousand Glaeubige from
the in and foreign country were gepilgert into the capital, around the
holy virgin to huldigen.

Horrible translation but maybe someone else can figure out the rest. Better than nothing, right?

Hmm... I think Sebastien's hair is getting like the others' as well. It looks a bit like Felix's has on occasion (you know, a bit long at the back). He did have quite short hair no so long ago, which didn't really look like his brothers' hair. What do other people think? :)

Thanks for the pics HMQEII ^___^
i was just wondering...did Luxembourg particpate in WWII or were they neutral like Switzerland? i know that Luxembourg was partially destroyed from the war...did they send soldiers? and if so how many? Luxembourg has such a small population it would have been extra hard to lose so many young men...

Luxembourg was occupied by the nazies and Grand Duke Jean was in the (British?) army during the war - so I expect they participated

I'm not sure, but it might have had something to do with the fact that GD Charlotte and her family fled to London and set up government-in-exile there when the war broke out.
