A l'occasion de la Fête nationale, une interview exclusive du Prince Félix
«Guillaume peut toujours compter sur moi»

Le 3 juin dernier, le Prince Félix a eu vingt ans. L'âge pour faire ses premiers pas officiels, comme à Esch-sur-Alzette lors de la Fête nationale.
Interview réalisée *par Daniel Pol-Soum

Le Jeudi: «Monseigneur, vous avez participé aux festivités de la Fête nationale à Esch-sur-Alzette. Dans une ville où 48% de la population est étrangère, quel symbole attribuez-vous à une fête qui, à l'origine, consiste à exprimer son attachement au souverain?»
Prince Félix: «Pour moi c'était une première qui m'a fait très plaisir. J'ai été touché par le côté sympathique de ces festivités qui reflètent bien la société multiculturelle d'Esch-sur-Alzette. Mon frère Guillaume a lui aussi été sensible à l'attachement de ces populations si diverses.»
Le Jeudi: «Vos parents ont toujours été très proches de la population. Quelle est votre conception de la monarchie moderne?»
P. F.: «La proximité est un impératif incontournable et nos parents nous montrent l'exemple en la matière. Ils nous ont toujours inculqué le souci de partager, dans la mesure du possible, les joies et les peines de nos concitoyens.»
Amis,princes ou non
Le Jeudi: «Deux mariages récents ont démontré l'ouverture des Maisons royales à la société, comme ce fut le cas aussi pour vos parents. Est-ce selon vous un signe de modernité nécessaire?»
P. F.: «Je ne pense pas que ce soit "nécessaire". C'est un signe des temps, et je trouve cela tout à fait normal.»
Le Jeudi: «Nombreux sont les princes de votre génération en Europe. Quelles sont vos relations avec eux?»
P. F.: «Je n'ai pas vraiment de relations spéciales avec eux. Je choisis mes amis moi-même, indépendamment du fait qu'ils soient princes ou non. Les familles royales font plutôt partie de la famille et je compte plus d'amis en dehors de ce milieu. Etre prince n'est pas une condition pour être mon ami.»
Le Jeudi: «Sauf imprévu, vous ne serez jamais chef de l'Etat. Comment vit-on le fait d'être le numéro 2 et vous est-il arrivé de regretter de ne pas être le numéro 1?»
P. F.: «Au risque de vous surprendre, je dois vous dire que nous avons été élevés ainsi. Cette situation a toujours été tout à fait normale et je suis content pour Guillaume. Je peux vous dire que Guillaume est aussi mon meilleur ami. Je sais qu'il assume déjà son rôle parfaitement. Et Guillaume sait qu'il peut toujours compter sur moi.»
Le Jeudi: «Malgré tout, avez-vous, comme votre frère aîné, reçu une éducation et une formation de potentiel futur souverain?»
P. F.: «Nous avons tous été éduqués de la même manière. Le fait d'être le "deuxième" n'a pas spécialement influé sur mon éducation mais m'a permis de prendre connaissance de certains aspects dans la préparation de Guillaume à ses futures tâches.»
Le Jeudi: «Vous faites actuellement vos études à l'European Business School. Avec quel projet professionnel?»
P. F.: «Depuis mon départ forcé de Sandhurst à la suite d'une blessure au genou due à un accident de ski, je poursuis depuis février des études à la "European Business School" à Londres. Je me verrais bien plus tard dans un grand groupe international, en charge des questions de relations humaines ou de la communication.»
«Je sors comme tout le monde»
Le Jeudi: «Quel est votre projet pour le pays, dans le rôle qui est et sera le vôtre?»
P. F.: «C'est une question qu'il faudrait plutôt adresser à mon frère Guillaume, pas à moi. Lui aura un jour un rôle à assumer. Quant à moi, je ne sais pas encore où je ferai ma vie.»
Le Jeudi: «Quand vous étiez enfant, on pouvait vous rencontrer au cirque et ailleurs, comme tous les autres enfants. Etait-ce important pour vous de ne pas vivre dans une tour d'ivoire? Et maintenant?»
P. F.: «Nous n'avons effectivement pas été élevés dans une tour d'ivoire. J'ai vécu une scolarité tout à fait normale, d'abord au Luxembourg, puis en Suisse et maintenant en Grande-Bretagne. Du reste, j'ai fait un peu de scoutisme. Avec mes parents, mes frères et ma sœur ou entre amis je sors comme tout le monde, que ce soit au cinéma, au restaurant ou en discothèque. Je n'ai jamais été élevé dans une tour d'ivoire, d'ailleurs je ne le supporterais pas.»
Le Jeudi: «Quel est l'aspect de votre statut que vous trouvez le plus intéressant? Et celui que vous aimez le moins?»
P. F.: «Je n'ai pas de statut particulier. Il m'arrive de rencontrer des personnalités marquantes. En revanche, de par mes origines, je suis parfois quelque peu exposé et donc je m'impose à l'occasion volontairement certaines restrictions.»

hey guys... i have translated it in to english for all of u... hope u like it.. he seems really cool... and modest hehe mwa mwa :P

English translation:
With the occasion of the national Festival, an exclusive interview of Prince Felix "Guillaume can always count on me"

Last 3 June, Prince Felix was twenty years old. The age to take its first official steps, as in the Esch-on-Alzette at the time of the national Festival.
Interview carried out by Daniel pol.-Soum

Thursday: "Monseigneur, you took part in the festivities of the national Festival in the
Esch-on-Alzette. In a city where 48% of the population are foreign, which symbol you allot to a festival which, at the origin, consists in expressing its attachment with the sovereign?"Prince

Felix: "For me it was a first which pleased very to me. I was touched by the side sympathetic nerve of these festivities which reflect well the multicultural company of the Esch-on-Alzette. My Guillaume brother was also sensitive for him to the attachment of these so various populations."

Thursday: "Your parents were always very close to the population. Which is your design of modern monarchy?"

P. F: "the proximity is a requirement impossible to circumvent and our parents show us the example on the matter. They always inculcated us the concern of dividing, as far as possible, joys and sorrows of our fellow-citizens."

Friendly,princes or not Jeudi: "Two recent marriages showed the opening of the royal Houses at the company, as it was the case also for your parents. Is this according to you a sign of modernity necessary?"

P. F: "I do not think that it is" necessary ". It is a sign of times, and I find that completely normal."

Thursday: "Many are the princes of your generation in Europe. Which are your relations with them?"

P. F: "I do not have really special relations with them. I choose my friends myself, independently owing to the fact that they are princes or not. The royal families rather form part of the family and I count more friends apart from this medium. To be a prince is not a condition to be my friend."

Thursday: "Except unforeseen, you will be never a Head of the State. How did one see the fact of being number 2 and he sometimes happened to you to regret not to be number 1?"

P. F: "With the risk to surprise you, I must say to you that we were thus high. This situation was always completely normal and I am content for Guillaume. I can say to you that Guillaume is also my best friend. I know that it assumes already its role perfectly. And Guillaume knows that it can always count on me."

Thursday: "Despite everything, you have, like your elder brother, receipt an education and a training of sovereign future potential?"P. F: "We all were educated same manner. The fact of being the "second" especially did not influence my education but allowed me to take note of certain aspects in the preparation of Guillaume to his future tasks."

Thursday: "You currently make your studies in European Business School. With which professional project?"

P. F: "Since my forced departure of Sandhurst following a wound with the knee due to an accident of ski, I continue since February of the studies in "European Business School"
in London. I would see myself much later in a great international group, in load of the questions of human relations or communication."" I leave like everyone "

Thursday: "Which is your project for the country, in the role which is and will be yours?"

P. F: "It is a question which it would rather be necessary to address to my Guillaume brother, not with me. He will have one day a role to assume. As for me, I do not know yet where I will make my life."

Thursday: "When you were child, one could meet you with the circus and elsewhere, like all the other children. Was this important for you not to live in an ivory tower? And now?"

P. F: "We were not high indeed in an ivory tower. I lived a completely normal schooling, initially in Luxembourg, then in Switzerland and maintaining in Great Britain. Remainder, I did a little scouting. With my parents, my brothers and my s?ur or between friends I leave like everyone, that it is with the cinema, at the restaurant or in discotheque. I was never high in an ivory tower, moreover I would not support it."

Thursday: "Which is the aspect of your statute which you find most interesting? And that which you do like less? »

P. F: "I do not have a particular statute. It sometimes happens to me to meet outstanding personalities. On the other hand, from my origins, I am sometimes somewhat exposed and thus I assert myself on the occasion voluntarily certain restrictions.»

what do you mean?

many thanks, bad_barbarella! that intwerview was great. thanks for translating.
from what i see, guillaume and felix (probably because they are the older ones) really seem to be very close and great friends. however, it's true that the whole family is very close... and felix supports his brother a lot.

which differences could have been in felix's education and guillaume's?

:P I think that "guillaume can always count on me" is re-inforcing to his brother that he will be there as a best friend to support him in his future roles... i am not sure about the difference in eductation... it seems felix doesnt like royal snobs and just wants to be normal from a few comments in his interview from a luxembourg paper
