Yes you are right in that Lalla Meriem. What I meant was it will probably not get the same attention in the world press as CP Frederick and CP Mary or Prince William since Lux Royals aren't as public as the other royal houses. But yes obviously it will get press and as you said it depends on where the girl is from.

Yes.... He speaks in I'm not sure what language at about 3:15. It's from last year's Tour de France I believe.

Well, he refers to Lëtzebuergers and not Luxembourgers, luxembourgeois, or Luxemburgers I therefore assume he is speaking Luxembourgish. I can understand German fair enough (not perfectly) and I miss parts of what he's saying. A German would not say Lëtzebuergers or Lëtzebuergerland.

Yes, the video is from the 2008 Tour de France.

Later in the video Andy Schleck is speaking and he is definitely speaking Luxembourgish and I hardly understand anything he says except his last phrase which is a common phrase and is even used by Felix when he comments.

There is a video of the Grand Duke speaking Luxembourgish He speaks very clearly and slowly you can hear the slowest and clearest Luxembourgish ever from the Grand Duke. I listen to him to tune my ears to Luxembourgish..

If I improve a little bit my Deutsch, I mean Germany, I would understand some of this? Fact he speak very slowly and clearly, I'm impressed, not like William who speaks English that way that it's hard to understand anything. Luxembourgish has much in connom with German? That isn't German dialect or sth?

Can we see any video when MT, Guillaume speaking? GD Henri has nice voice, however I prefer english or french ( I don't speak french but it sound nice, light and... clear.

I'm impressed. Guillaume so sweet. He doesn't look so shy when he welcomed guests. However I'm shy too and people don't see it in some situations. He looks relax and he likes prince Frederik I think.

I imagine Felix in another way but it's amazing to see them speaking not only on photos. Thanks all for videos!

He says he's very Proud and also his Parents, who he was speaking with on telephone.
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?
