I watched specials on E!TV and WE (Women's Entertainment) about the royals. WE's special included all the royal houses, including Guillaume, Felix and Louis. It was great, because I finally learned how to pronounce Guillaume's name.

The E!TV network showed the Nobel Peace Prize concert. I saw M-M and H dancing. American media mainly covers the British Royal Family.

For the Spainish Royal Family, the American-Spanish media does a good job. I watched Felipe's wedding on CNN-Spain. To find information about Luxembourg, I have to really look.

More photos (from another message board) from today:

Reported by the international corrispondants we have as members of this site alone, nearly all royal activities of either the families still on the throne or those who have fallen off would be covered. Perhaps as this conclusion has been reached as a result of the death of JC we could call it the Josephine-Charlotte News Agency or something. Sorry I am ramberling arnt I?
I agree with you! One big station that everywhere can be recieved. It would save a lot of money, as otherwise a lot of national tv-stations has to buy the rights, material and hire people to organise everything and such. With one station everything is centered.

And it could show interesting documentaries, giving the latest royal news, etc. etc.

May she rest in peace and hope that Maria Teresa, a Great Lady, had forgive her mother-in-law.
There are three sides to every story. In this case, there is Josephine-Charlotte's truth, Maria Teresa's truth and the truth, what really happened between these two women. I'm aftraid we'll probably never know the true story behind the rumours. And, how can we blame one woman over the other since both women were responsible for the public display of animosity?

In the pictures of Maria Teresa, she is visibly upset. I hope that if the two did have problems that they were able to resolve them before she died. If not it is a terrible thing for Maria Teresa to carry the guilt of unresolved issues.

I guess establishing a televised news channel would be quite limiting. Although we are all members of this forum beacuse of an interest one way or another in Royalty, there are those who are not and unfortunatly tv stations would be selective in what they purchased. They would perhaps purchase selected stories and documentries produced, however a publication might be more feasable. Although there are several magazines produced (e.g. Royalty Monthley and Majesty) their reports are often very out of date and do not report that much news. Something similiar but BIGGER would be good.

What is really needed is for all the Royal Families to agree that it would be a good idea for them to have good Public Relations, handled by an specialist organisation (us ). They are all bombarded with world press wanting them for interviews and stories and naturaly they cant please everyone and also find it intrusive. However a specialist news agency that would handle it all on their behalf would mean they could give exclusive information to one party to then handle as required and monitor the general media's tendencies to sensationalise on things that either blow an indisgretion or mistake out of proportion, or to blow a small good deed out of proportion so that in effect it becomes negative news as people think "well if thats all they do and thats good why do we want them."

I dont belive that Royal Families are given apropriate coverage. We all know how hard some of them work but if i didnt look beyond the headlines i would wounder what they actualy did too. It is a sad thing that we as the mass public consumer only want to know about anyone, whether they are Kings, Politicians or Celebraties when they have done something "bad." In the UK we dont publicise what members of the Royal Family do each day, which we dont always need to either, but when one of them gets a Parking Ticket or is caught in last years fashion it is all over the papers and the TV. As a specialised news agency, "WE" could change the world :)

At least there's come an end to her physical suffering now, she's held herself very strong these last months. She was an exemplary woman.

Could anyone please describe the situation in Luxembourg right now



Hallo everyone,

To all the Luxembourg posters who read this , I would like to ask you to describe the situation in Luxemburg right now as we are getting closer to the eve of the funeral of Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte. From the information I read from the net, I noticed that all radio in Luxembourg are now playing classical songs and tv stations showing documentaries on HRH Grand Duchess (I'm now watching all the videos provided on the rtl site). Are they true?

Has anyone of you paid your last respect to Grand Duchess and how would you describe the situation there right now?

If anyone knows the details of the funeral particularly on the exact time of procession and requiem mass, please kindly inform us here.

Thank you.
