GD Jean is an heroic, popular figure in Luxembourg. He personally took part in the liberation of his country from the Nazis during WWII, which I never knew until a couple of years ago.

All of his grandchildren revere him, particularly HGD Guillaume.

Bronchitis can be rough even for a healthy young person, so I am really praying for a good outcome for GD Jean.

Yes, unlike many honorary appointments, jean earned his place in the Irish guards. He originally was in North America during the war but returned and joined the Irish guards. He was in the battle for Caen, as well as in liberating both Brussels and Luxemborg.

You hear any of his grandkids speak about him, and there is no doubt how much love and respect they hold for him

I bought though e-Bay their Wedding Program on 9 of April 1953 ( 48 pages ) and the Groom is still alive.

I read in that Book that He was admited in the Irish Guards Regiment in november 1942. His was Soldier John Luxembourg.
He was admitted at he Officers cadet Training Unit of Aldershot and had the title of "sous-lieutenant" (1943)
He was "Lieutenant" and participated at the Normandy battle.in 1944
He left in 1945 as Captain.

Nice to see the Grand Duke out and about at the age of 96! He must be one of the oldest royals of Europe by now.

Woizlawa of Reuss is 98 but then we have the three boys of 1921 - Jean of Luxembourg, Philip of Edinburgh & Michael of Romania.
If we bend the rules of whos a royal a little Dagmar von Arbin, born a Countess Bernadotte of Wisborg, is 101.
