Mother of Grand Duke Henri dies at age 77




LUXEMBOURG: Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte of Luxembourg, the mother of Grand Duke Henri, died Monday after a long battle with lung cancer, the government announced. She was 77.

The court immediately declared a six-week mourning period.

Josephine-Charlotte was married to Grand Duke Jean, who ruled the tiny nation of 450,000 from 1964 until 2000.

"The death of the Grand Duchess is a great loss for the country and its people,'' said Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker. "With her husband, Grand Duke Jean, she always made an effort to represent Luxembourg at home and abroad with dignity,'' he added.

Josephine-Charlotte also was the sister of Belgian king Albert II. She is survived by her husband Jean, Grand Duke Henri, Princes Jean and Guillaume and Princesses Marie-Astrid and Margaretha.

The funeral will take place on Saturday, government spokesman Guy Schuller said.

The death comes at a difficult time for the Grand Duchy, just as it has taken over the six-month presidency of the European Union early this month. - AP

What an absolute shame. She was such a wonderful woman.

May she rest in peace.

And may her husband, children, grandchildren, and all of her family find the strength and comfort they need during this difficult period.

That's so sad! When and where will the funeral be aired on? I'm so upset and can hardly form words.

This is soooo sad! I send my condolences to her family.

Some more photos. I'm sorry if some of them have been posted.

Photo 4 is with her father, King Léopold and her brother, now King Albert II of Belgium
Photo 6 is of JC (right) at Oostende with her mother

I have noticed in some older photos of the GD, when she was younger, she looks very similar to Cate Blanchett.
