Wow thank you, it's nice to hear him talk. I speak french and in this video, he said he was feeling like this school was the right one for him because he love skiing and he can be natural (beeing himself).

Further on they show images of him skiing and talking with old schoolmates. The images are from a reunion of former students, so I guess they could be quite recent. Felix talks French (nice accent ) and the subtitles are in Dutch but if you don’t understand, I’ll translate it for you. I hope you enjoy … here is the link :

You have to click on ‘bekijk deel 2’ and then forward because the part about Beau Soleil and Felix only starts on 2:35.
Would you translate what he said please?

Oh, they are his 18th bday pics (funny how I recognize them right away.) It was soon after his 19th that he really started to look the way most people recognize him as.

I think I saw a black and white one (is that the official one?) but it may have already been posted.

Just the black and white one. That seems to be the trend with the two brothers lately.

I wrote down what he said in French and afterwards I tried to translate it quickly into English but I was too lazy to go after a dictionary so there are probably a lot of mistakes in it. If other members see mistakes, please correct them! I hope I'm helping you with this ...

Bonjour, je suis Félix de Luxembourg et je suis un ancien de Beau Soleil et ça fait toujours un grand plaisir de revenir ici. Je suis arrivé directement à Beau Soleil et j’ai dit à ma mère : c’est ça, ça c’est pour moi, le ski, j’adore et puis c’était vraiment attachant directement. D’un côté, j’ai mes valeurs au Luxembourg que je garde toujours et que je suis fier d’avoir et puis d’un autre côté, je me suis pris la liberté, quand j’étais à Beau Soleil, d’être moi-même et évidemment, ça aide d’être dans une école où chacun a à peu près les mêmes valeurs.

Hi, I am Félix of Luxembourg. I am a former student of Beau Soleil and it’s always a pleasure to come back here. From the moment I arrived, I said to my mother that this school was something for me because I adore skiing. And also, I felt immediately home in this place. On the one hand, I have my roots in Luxembourg that I will always have and of which I am proud to have; on the other, when I was at Beau Soleil, I took the liberty of really being myself and of course, it helps to be at a school where almost everybody shares the same values.

the guillaume mentioned was his uncle. perhaps his tenure in nyc is up, and he had to come back to london, brussels, geneva, or wherever he was before then.

Shy or just not interesting?

Has anyone got any info on Felix. He seems to be the least talked abut member of the family. Why is this. Much appreciated.

I heard that he is currently in the states studying.
He does seem very shy, but he doesn't do that many public engagements like Guillaume, In interviews he comes across as having a very open personality..... but still very humble.....
