Part II National Day: 23.06.2004



1. Princess Alexandra on 23.06.2004

Some more photos of Luxembourg's National Day 2004

Why is Luxembourg's National Day on 23.06.2004?:)

There is an interesting story about:
Than Grand Duchess Charlotte (Grand Duke Jean's mother) came on the throne in 1919 the National Day was 23.01. (that was her bithday) , but a few years later it was altered to the 23.06 because the weather is usually nasty in January and sunny in June.
Than Grand Duke Jean arrived on the throne in 1964 (born the 5.5) the National Day was not changed because of the same reason.
Nowadays it is a tradition to celebrate the National Day on 23.06. so why should it be changed?:)
Although Grand Duke Henri is born in April the National Day is still the 23.06.


1. Heriditary Grand Duke Guillaume and his brother Prince Felix
2. Prince Felix and his brother Prince Sebastien

I personally think she is very appropriately dressed. She looks like a 13 year old, not a 13 year old trying to look like a 21 year old.

She is really very beautiful!:o


But in her family there are so many of beautiful princesses: Princess Marie Astrid and her daughters Marie Christine and Gabriella are beautiful, than Princess Margaretha and her daughters Princess Maria Anunciata and Marie Astrid are really pretty and Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte is also one beauty. :)

I'm a boy so I remark first the female beauty ! But I assent that the Princes in this family are pretty too: Grand Duke Henri and his four sons (Guillaume, Felix, Louis and Sebastien) for example, or Grand Duke Jean (when he was younger) and the sons of Princess Marie Astrid too.

The beauty is in the family there are no doubts!:)

hahahaha....i totally agree with you drimal and like i mentioned before they are keeping the 'good-looking' gene to themselves!!! that's why they should marry outside the family and share the gene around ^___^ like the saying goes - sharing is caring hahaha ^___^

"Chateau" is the French word for castle. "Palais" is the French word for palace. So...
Chateau de Fischbach=Castle of Fischbach, or appropriately in English, Fischbach Castle.
and
Palais Grand-Ducal=Grand Ducal Palace.

Hope this helps.

Yes suturegeisha. You are right!:)
Luxembourg has its own language, the Luxembourgish (Lëtzebuergesch), but laws and statutes are in French.
We have no newspaper in Luxembourgish, the two main newspapers Luxemburger Wort and Tageblatt are in German. But the main TV channel RTL Tele Lëtzebuerg is in Luxembourgish.

So official it's Palais du Grand Duc , Château de Fischbach and Château de Colmar-Berg.

The Grand Dukal family is living in the castle of Fischbach (Château de Fischbach) and the Palace(Palais). They moved from Colmar-Berg to Fischbach after Henri became Grand Duke on 7th october 2000 and the former Grand Duke Jean and his wife Josephine-Charlotte live actually in Fischbach.

Oh, so Grand Duke Henri and his family, plus GD Jean and GD Josephine-Charlotte live in Fischbach, now, too? I didn't know that- I thought they still lived in Colmar-Berg. Thanks for the info, drimal. :)

Sorry, I wrote something wrong.

It is right that the Grand Dukal family (Henri, Maria Teresa and their children) moved from Colmar-Berg to Fischbach, but the former Grand Dukal couple (Jean and Josephine Charlotte) have moved too. They moved from Fischbach to Colmar-Berg where they are living now.

It's some sort of tradition that the reigning Grand Duke is living in Fischbach.

I hope you excuse me my little error.

Ah. I see. I think my eyes must have been crossed when I read it before. Thank you, drimal.
