What a delight to write an article on Christmas! Merry christmas to everybody!

XIII National Day 23.06.2001

Princess Alexandra was not present at National Day 2002 but she was there on National Day 2001! It was Grand Duke Henri's first National Day as sovereign of Luxembourg!:)

1. Princess Alexandra and Prince Sebastien in the church (I don't envy them to stand before so many important persons!)
2. outside the church with Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duke Maria Teresa
3. talking with archbishop Fernand Frank
4. another picture outside the church
5. pictures in the cathedrale during the Te Deum

Note: I have more pics of this event and I will post them in the thread of symbols and functions!

Yes, indeed!

Wouldn't it be cool if Alexandra went to Sandhurst like her older brothers? She could go on parade with her Papa and Guillaume on Luxembourg's National Day!!

That would be quite cool. it would give some serious encouragement to women in the armed forces across the globe and to young girls everywhere.

Only 10% of all recruits at Sandhurst are female.

Imagine Christmas in the Grand Ducal family with all the oppulent presents. Guillaume you will have your own boat for christmas, Felix your BMW Z4, Louis your Mercedes A-Class, Alexandra your swimming pool and Sebastien your own football field...

No this is naturally a little joke. But I'm asking me sometimes what they give each other for Christmas!

well, judging by the pics and from what's been posted on the boards here, they probably have pretty simple christmas celebrations and give pretty practical presents to each other. they might "splurge" on expensive gifts on special occasions, such as someone's landmark b'day or a special anniversary for something, which is probably a good thing, as it keeps em grounded and allows them to have some sense of "normalcy" amongst one another.

Yes, they don't seem like the flashy type of family who show off their wealth, so I'm sure MT and Henri wouldn't spoil their children too much :)
