Oh dear. That doesn't sound good. May God bless this dignified, elegant and brave man.

What a life.

My family and I have been down this route early last year with my father. My thoughts and prayers are with the Ducal family in this difficult time.

Doesn't sound good. That his family has been called is a sign that he may not have long time left... If God calls him back home soon, i hope he has inner and outer peace 😇🙏

He has had a remarkable life. Fighted personally in WW2. Sadly that generation is starting to dissapear...

I hope his situation is not too bad to pray for a miracle.

Yes at this point in time, GD Jean's comfort should be first and foremost. May God bless him and his family during this time.

Sad news. If we are being told, and his family is with him, his time is likely near

He has lived an amazing long life. He joined the Irish guards and helped liberate Brussels and later Luxembourg. Five children, twenty two grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren

He has not only survived past his wife, but four of his five younger siblings.

Hope he is in peace surrounded by his loved ones, in what time he has left.

Nothing new from the Grand Ducal Court. I don't think they will say anything more until he passes away or miraculously recovers. The last statement that his health has deteriorated to the point that his entire family (his 5 children) has been called to his bedside is a signal that the doctors don't expect him to be here much longer.

Whatever happens, i hope he has inner and outer peace, no pain, and is surrounded by his children and available grandchildren.
