Exclamation 35 years ago Prince Felix died at Fischbach!

Spouse of Grand Duchess Charlotte, Prince Felix died 35 years ago with 77 years

In my newspaper there was a remembrance today that Prince Felix, the spouse of Grand Duchess Charlotte (died in 1985), had gone away on 8th April 1970, accuarately 35 years ago.

Prince Felix of Luxembourg had the titles Prince of Bourbon de Parme, Prince of Nassau. He was burried on 11th April 1970 at 15 o'clock.
Only one year before, in 1969 the couple had celebrated its Golden wedding.

Below is a picture with Grand Duchess Charlotte and Prince Felix.

Well then I guess they went. But I didn't see them. I was too busy looking at other people.

Cool Hmmph

The poster features several scantily dressed Brazilian Samba dancers. “It’s a sexy poster”, said Helminger, commenting on the daring design.

Okay, if there is someone here who has seen the poster, please take a photo and send it here. I sooo want to see it...

I attach couple things I scanned from Point de Vue magazine. Enjoy.

Loose translation, mind you, I quit taking french classes a year and a half ago.

In the picture with Felix, Alexandra and Louis, it says that

80% of soccer balls (footballs) are made in Pakistan by child workers. Three of the five children of Grand-Duke Henri visited the Transfair-Minka society who's trying to adopt regulations in the countries where these children work. It was an awakening experience for the children of Maria-Theresa who supports them (meaning the society I guess).

In Guillaume's pic:

Very elegant, Hereditary Grand duke Guillaume of Luxembourg handed out the Prize for the Federation of Craftsmen (?) 2004. Very professionally, Guillaume congratulated each of the laureates for the quality of their work.


Anybody more proficient in French, feel free to correct it.

Hello!

The one with Guillaume was published some three weeks ago; the other in last November I think. If you want the exact dates, I can check.

Thank you for the photos. Why didn't GD Jean attend? Or Felix, for that matter?

Is it just me or does it seem like Guillaume has lost some weight?
