The one lion sports the Arms of Nassau, the other lion the Arms of Bourbon-Parma.

The new Luxembourg vault is not really my cup of tea. Too polished floors, to shiny materials, too clinical. I prefer old dark mediaeval looking vaults which needs a torchlight above this one with halogene spots.

No I don't like it either I wonder when it was redecorated some of the burials go back to the medieval Dukes of Luxembourg and remarkably are still intact.

I found this video of the Grand Dukes Coffin leaving the cathedral for interment in the Grand Ducal Crypt I assume there's a separate entrance?

Absolutely agree. I don't like this vault either. In fact, when I saw it, I immediately thought that it looked Chinese. Those fat, golden lions look like Chinese lions in a Chinese Fastfood Restaurant! Does anyone have any pictures of the "dark medieval looking vaults?"

The mausoleum of the House Orange-Nassau in Delft is not accessible. In the 19th C two gentlemem were allowed to inspect the mausoleum and drawings were published: https://kunst-en-cultuur.infonu.nl/a...2982834458.jpg That looks mediaeval and darksome.

Even in the 20th and 21st C no pictures have been published of the interior of this mausoleum. The only thing the public sees is a deckstone covering the stairs:

For royal funerals the deckstone is removed:

When Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg died, his banner as a Stranger Knight of the Garter was removed and is now being prepared by College of St George, Windsor Castle, for ‘laying up’ on the Altar, as shown in this picture published in The Dragon

It will be blessed by the Dean of the the chapel and presented to the family.
