Whilst her husband received many British Orders, Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte of Luxembourg never received any,I wonder was there any reason as to why?

The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh did pay a State Visit to the Grand Duchy in November 1976.

In 1976 , I lived in Luxembourg and saw Queen Elisabeth II with her grand tiara. Unforgettable.
I don't remember if the late Grand Duchess wore a British sash ?

How curious that she never received a French order. They live next door and the French orders of merit seem to be handed out to basically anybody they can find.

The above list is from her Wikipedia profile so there could be missing items,but the non French honour is odd.

Queen Elizabeth II. never gives Order to female Consorts. Queens Silvia, Sonja and Sofia for example also don't have a british Order.

Great to see the Grand-Duke still out and about. He is the very last (legitimate) one descending from a Nassau.

The last real direct (legitimate) male descendant is Clothilde von Nassau-Merenberg. She shares Carolina of Orange-Nassau and Karl Christian von Nassau-Weilburg as ancestors with Grand Duke Jean:

Prince Willem IV of Orange-Nassau, Stadtholder of the United Provinces (1711-1751)
x Princess Anne of Great Britain and Hanover, The Princess Royal (1709-1759)
=
Carolina

Princess Carolina of Orange-Nassau (1743-1787)
x Prince Karl Christian of Nassau-Weilburg (1735-1788)
=
Wilhelm

Prince Wilhelm of Nassau-Weilburg, Duke of Nassau (1792-1839)
x Princess Pauline of Württemberg (1810-1856)
=
Nikolaus

Prince Nikolaus of Nassau-Weilburg (1832-1905)
x (morganatic) Natalia Alexandrovna Pushkina, cr. Countess von Merenberg (1836-1913)
=
Georg

Georg, Count von Merenberg (1871-1948)
x Olga Alexandrovna Romanova, cr. Princess Yurievskaya (1873-1925)
=
Georg

Georg, Count von Merenberg (1897-1965)
x Elisabeth Anne Müller Uri (1903-1963)
=
Clotilde

The last direct male Nassau-descendant therefore is Clotilde, Countess von Merenberg, widow of the German aristocrat Enno von Rintelen (1921-2013). She has three sons: Alexander (1966), Nicolaus (1970) en Gregor (1972).

Today was the national day of the tree and forest protection. As a patron, GD Jean turned up for the treeplanting ceremony.

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.
