I believe the old Grand Duke attended Laval University before joining the British Army in WWII. The doctorate probably honors him for his long service to Luxembourg.

As I noted in that thread, GD Jean is looking very frail.

Does anyone know if he has been ill?

Good to see GD Jean up and about. He seems to be doing well. Being active, not just staying cooped up in that palace, should be good for him.
