I wonder if this visit will be now be cancelled? I'm sure HM has more important things on her mind at present and I would imagine all parties involved would be understanding.

You mean princess Alexandra
I don't think so. Alex is studying abroad, and Tessy with family lives in England. They never attended at state dinners and they probably never won't.

Queen Beatrix had a meeting with Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker.
And on a different note, I absolutely love this picture of the Grand Ducal couple.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa's dress looks similar to the dress of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden at the last nobel prize ceremony!

I have never seen the Grand Duchess' tiara before and I thought I had seen them all. Does anyone know it's history? I must say that the Luxembourg jewel collection seems very vast and impressive.

I think both Queen Beatrix and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa looked beautiful. I'm not normally a fan of shiny gowns, but the ladies pulled it off.
Grand Duke Henri and Prince Guillaume look very smart indeed.
