Luxembourg can be proud he says; 50 years after Luxembourg's Charly Gaull won the Tour de France, in 2008 there where 3 Luxembouger at the podium.
Andy Schleck won the White Jersey.
Frank Schleck won the etappe to Alpe d'Huez.
Kim Kirchen was 4 days in the Yellow Jersey and 1 or 2 days in the Green.

Its really SUPER, he ends!

Sorry to harp on about the question. When a royal baby is born the anouncement usually says at such and such a time a bay Prince/Princess was born.......

There doesn't seem to be any record of the times of this families births

I'm guessing by the title something to do with his astrological profile.

Yes. I am an astrologer. I have the basics but in astrology the time of birth is essential

On pictures taken on 29th May (canť find it now, it was some memorial or something) there was Guillaume handing a pen in his right hand (the same hand on which he wear a watch). So I guess he is right-handed in spite of wearing watch on his right hand.

I am ambidextrous and it poses no problems for me when I write with either hand in regards to my watch. However my preferred side to wear it, the watch, is my left, an old habit of many years standing.

They are both right-handed.

There is video of them signing the book on the day of Henri's ascension. They both wrote with their right hands.

Are the family close friends with, or closely related to any other royal families? I know they are closely linked with the Belgians, are there any others?

The Grand Duke's sisters is now married to Prince's of Austria and Lichstenstein. The GD's aunt (I think it is) was a Princess of Sweden, closely related to the King. And I believe it's stated on Alexandra's wiki that she's related to every currently reigning European monarch

The GD's maternal grandmother was Queen Astrid of Belgium who was Princess of Sweden. This makes him King Albert's nephew and a first cousin once removed of King Harald of Norway, whose mother Martha was Astrid's sister as well as a relative of the Swedish and Danish Royal families. I'm sure there are more connections. I haven't heard about this aunt, do you know her name?

No it was Astrid I thought about, was just unsure what she was to the GD

Accidentally into the site of the journal Promi, and I had read a few offensive titles about the Luxembourg Royal Family ... an opinion on these titles? I thought the royal family had a good relationship with the press... I also read about a scandalous book (about the royal family)... someone who has read it?

I haven't read the book but I heard that it is purely based on gossip, and no new gossip afaik. They just repeat everything that has been said about the last ten years or so.
Both Promi and Privat (they have even worse headlines) are magazine that shouldn't be taken too seriously, they are yellow press that make headlines up to sell. And they are not just rude towards the Grand Ducal Family, they are rude against most of the famous people living in Luxembourg, quick in pointing out mistakes made by others and sometimes think that they are the most important publication. For example a few weeks ago when the Grand Duke had his angioplasty Promi insisted on the fact that if they hadn't published the protocol of the emergency service, the Court would have never released the info about the angioplasty. I'm sure the Court doesn't feel compelled to release information just because a gossip magazine writes something on their website. I haven't read too much of Promi, but what I know by occasionally reading other yellow press is that there usually isn't much behind a sensational sounding headline
The more respected magazines in Luxembourg handle the Grand Ducal Family differently. They just write about some engagements they did and sometimes about possible future wives for Guillaume.

He's the Grand Duke's first cousin, the son of his late uncle Prince Charles.
