I was reading an interview somewhere and MT said that they lived fairly normal lives and didn't do that much of the royal thing.

I think that also has a lot to do with the size of the country. Not many people that I know of here in the states even know about it and those who do don't have much to say. Luxembourg is so stable in so many different areas that I guess that there wouldn't be that much press generated about it outside of Europe.

Does anyone know if Henri and Maria Teresa many trips abroad such as state visits and things along these lines? I know that MT has her work with UNESCO, so she does travel to distant places at times, but other than that do members of the Grand Ducal Family travel as much as some of the other RF's?

A fun website to go to for basic Lux info is the CIA world factbook. You can look at Luxembourg and I think they have some economic stuff on there and a brief thing about the government.

I'm glad other people have been there too! I think it is so much fun to look at all the countires, but everyone calls me a nerd when I tell them about it. It is a cool website for geography nerds. lol

It sounds like a beautiful place. Any pictures?

I don't think they would visit this forum. But you never know. The family likes the Internet.

My guess on their height -
Guillaume is taller than Victoria who I think is 55. In a photo from Haakon's wedding, Guillaume is standing behind the royal family of Sweden. I think he is 58.

Felix, to me, is the same height as his father. I think he is 59 or 60.

No, but if you do a comparison of them in photos (like from their vacation in '03) Felix looks taller.

Thumbs up

Here's some photos to compare their heights.

How tall is Juan Carlos? Henri and Juan Carlos look about the same height.

Victoria is probably wearing 2 to 3 inch heels. Guillaume in this photo looks taller than the Swedish royals. He looks 2 to 4 inches shorter than Prince Nikolaos.

I saw a picture of Guillaume and Felix meeting Felipe of Spain and Guillaume looked tiny standing next to Felipe. I know Felip is pretty tall but I think Guillaume went up to his shoulders. It was a funny picture, just to see how short Guillaume is in comparison.
