Yes -- the "organising major sports and cultural events" would appear to be right up his alley!

^That's Princess Maria Annunciata of Liechtenstein. She's Felix's cousin. Her mother is Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg and Liechtenstein, who is GD Henri's sister I believe. She's very pretty, and I think she looks kinda like Felix.

I agree! For a split second I had a sort of brain snap and thought "Oh, is she his sister. . . " then I realised no, of COURSE she isn't, she isn't Alexandra. . . Oh dear. . .

No, he would be heir presumptive.

Assumed. As in it's thought to be but is not official. As in, I don't PRESUME to know everything.

An "heir presumptive" is someone who is officially the next in line, but who can be "deposed" if someone "more fit" turns up. In this case, Felix would be heir presumptive, because as soon as Guillaume gets a son, this son becomes the irrevocable first in line, or "heir apparent". I don't think girls have a position in the line of succession in Luxembourg. And I also don't think an "heir presumptive" gets the title of "Hereditary Grand Duke".

Thanks a lot White Princess & Leana
I think my view on current monarchies are still dominated by my knowledge about absolute monarchy.
So I was a little too serious

Does anyone know if Prince Felix is working for a Swiss company in Switzerland or if he's working for a company that is based or has offices in Luxembourg or what company it is?

Hmmm, good point - I'm not sure whether it says he's actually in Switzerland or not - I suppose he could be working for a Swiss company in Luxembourg.

Where is he nowadays? The entire family except for the GD and GDess seem to be in hiding.

LOL, it does seem a bit like that sometimes - we certainly don't hear much about what the younger generation of Luxembourg royals are up to. . .

Prince Felix's looks, and whether or not he has turned "ugly", are not part of his Current Events. Please stay on topic.

What does Felix do when he isn't working his job for this Swiss firm or doing official functions?

You never hear about him (or his siblings) out at clubs, bars, or just hanging out anywhere. I can't imagine that he spends all of his downtime in his home playing World of Warcraft or something like that. Perhaps if he is living in Switzerland (which I kinda assume he is) no one knows who he is or recognizes him when he's out jogging or playing pool in a local cafe. Surly he and his brothers don't spend all their time sitting inside watching TV or playing computer games.

I agree with you. But it's funny. They are Lux princes but they live in Swiss (Felix, Louis). They can't live in their own country, becouse I don't know, they want have privacy?

Their siblings live in Luxemburg, and they have their privacy; but it seems to me that several princes of several countries don't live in their one, for example Prince Jean of Luxemburg and some Liechtentein Princes...
