IIRC, she is in the line of succession, she's just very, very far down the list. All the male branches of the entire family would have to be gone before she could inherit the throne as the Grand Duchess.

Do you think they'll ever change that?

I gather that when Guillaume marries a debate will start about equal succession rights for men and women, like it started in Denmark and Spain when their crownprinces got engaged.

Wouldn't the Luxemburg RF lose the Royal Highness style if a woman assends to the trone, the RH style goes with the P of Bourbon-Parma title (even if the don't use it anymore) and in the Bourbon-Parma family titles can only go true a male-line..

They wouldn't lose the Royal Highness. All of the Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses were entitled to the style of Royal Highness, even before Grand Duchess Charlotte married Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma. The other members of the family used the title of Grand Ducal Highness. So even if the Bourbon-Parma line did indeed become extinct, the Grand Duke or Grand Duchess would still be a Royal Highness.

[I hope that makes sense, and I apologize if it doesn't! I'm up too late!]

But didn't GD Jean already 'drop' the Bourbon-Parma title in the 80-ties? That is what I understood anyway, he was angry with his cousin Carlos-Hugo (the Duke of Parma, ex-husband of HRH princess Irene of The Netherlands) as CH didn't want to recognise the marriage of Henri and Maria-Theresa as equal. This way Henri's children won't be entitled to the Bourbon-Parma title anyway. Jean became angry at the snobbery of his cousin and dropped th Bourbon-Parma title all together. He did keep the HRH that came with the Bourbon-Parma title, but I believe it is now 'attached' to the Luxembourg title.

You're right, Jan-Maarten, he did give up the Bourbon-Parma title...I thought about explaining that too, but then realized my original answer was confusing enough.

Isn't that one of the same set they took two years ago - for the GD's birthday or something? I think the photos released on April 16, of Sebastien, were Enough with these old already!

I think I saw her at H&M today!!! I wasn't sure about it at first, because H&M is maybe the last thing you expect so see a princess lol but the more I looked at her the more I was sure it was her! she was with a bunch of French speaking girl friends which seems logical because she is at the French lycée!

I think it's possible for Alexandra to have been at the H&M. It's a very trendy store that's pretty popular so I wouldn't be shocked (to find out that she shops there, I mean). You are so lucky to have run into her...or at least to have seen her out and about. I'd have died of shock if I saw a Princess at the store...

yeah it was kind of strange! but nobody seemed to see her! she really seemed to be just a normal girl... and here in such a small country it's quite common, because my sister had already seen her out in the city too

You're so lucky to have seen her at such a close proximity!

The family's official website posted this image of Alexandra. I like it and I'm pretty sure I haven't seen it before... Cour grand-ducale de Luxembourg - La Princesse Alexandra

Alexandra's a very pretty girl. I do not think that the men of this family are particularly good-looking, no offense, but Alexandra certainly got great genes from both sides of the family.

Alexandra and Guillaume have visited Esch/Alzette the day before National Day (22nd June 2007) but unfortunately there aren't any pics of this event on rtl.lu as it has been last year.

However I have some pics in newspaper Luxemburger Wort and as soon as my scanner is working again I will post them here.

that's a part of a picture, where she leans on her mother, isn't it?

here's something else:

I'm not sure about that. I remember that in one she is leaning on her mother she and MT are in profile...but it does look like she is leaning on someone.
