It is nice that the former Chef of the House Orange-Nassau visits this special birthday of the former Chef of the House Nassau.

Picture: in 1990 the Chef of the House Nassau welcomed the Chef of the House Orange-Nassau to celebrate that 100 years ago the Grand-Duchy went from the one branch of the dynasty (Orange-Nassau) to the other branch (Nassau).

Queen Anne-Marie and Grand-Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte were cousins. The mother of Anne-Marie was Princess Ingrid of Sweden. The mother of Joséphine-Charlotte was Princess Astrid of Sweden. On this picture you see the later Queen of Italy and the later Queen of Denmark as bridesmaids to King Léopold III and Queen Astrid.

Princess Astrid would become mother of two Kings and a Grand-Duchess. Queen Ingrid would become mother to two Queens and a Fürstin. Those were the days. It was still fun to follow royals because everything was connected to everything.

I love the group photo! It's always nice to see the European royals together. I would've liked to have seen a British representative there but a couple of other countries are missing, so it's not like they're the only ones who didn't go.

A pity that King Albert II and Queen Paola could not make it, though it is nice that their son attended with Queen Mathilde. I suppose the sisters of GD Jean were also not well enough to attend and were represented by one daughter each.

Happy birthday to the Grand Duke!

Its a pity that neither of his 2 remaining sisters could make it,but given their age that is understandable.

All in all a lovely royal gathering!

Princess Anne de Ligne and Countess Antonia of Holstein-Ledreborg are goddaughters of Grand Duke Jean and were thus present at the palais. There were also others, such as Princes Sophie of Hohenberg e.g., present for the concert.

It is pretty much family and good friends:
Philippe of Belgium = cousin of the late Grand-Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte
Anne-Marie of the Hellenes = cousin of the late Grand-Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte
Sofía of Spain = cousin of the late Grand-Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte
Irene of Greece = cousin of the late Grand-Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte
Beatrix of the Netherlands = former Chef of the House of Orange-Nassau (Jean is the former Chef of the House Nassau)
Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath = they maintain warm relations with almost all royal families
