Closing of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg; May 17, 2009

Will the Grand Ducal family attend the Closing of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg this year. I believe it is today.

Yes, it is today. However, the actual services begin at 6pm (18:00) Luxembourg time according to the signs posted in front of the cathedral. It is not yet even 12:30 in Luxembourg. No sign of the GD family yet. The procession that will proceed the services also hasn't started.

The first gallery of photos has been posted on RTL. It does not YET include any photos of the GD family, as they don't seem to have made an appearance thus far. The gallery will be updated later in the day.

May 17, 2009: TRH the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess, HRH Prince Félix, HRH Prince Louis and Tessy de Nassau, HRH Princess Alexandra and HRH Prince Sébastian attended the closing of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg.

On the balcony, Gabriel and Noah joined the family.

It was lovely to see Gabriel and Noah on the balcony but a shame the pictures were from far away. The Grand Duke and Duchess seem like doting grandparents

Hopefully, as the week goes on more pictures will emerge. Tom Wagner finally loaded pics of the Octave preparations from earlier so perhaps he will load pics from the actual Octave Procession. There is a small piece on Wort.lu with a nice picture, but otherwise the RTL gallery is it. The GD website usually updates in the afternoon so hopefully they'll also put up a pic or two.


I missed seeing Guillaume there. He must have something important going on for him to miss the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg.

She wore this outfit minus the hat at the wedding of Prince Louis and Tessy.

And I think you might be correct too.

Thanks you for posting the pictures the family looks to be very close. I think my favourite picture was of Sebastien holding an umbrella to keep himself and Tessy dry while Louis had his own umbrella!

It's good to see the whole (almost, except for Guillaume) family out and about again! And we should see them again in June for the National day celebrations.

Thank you for all the pictures! It's great to see the Luxembourg royal family together, especially Gabriel and Noah joining them on the balcony for the first time. The little boys are so big and really cute!
