I don't think his wife was there. I've never seen her with any of the royal family. Do you suppose she was not invited? He doesn't look too happy.

I don't know...maybe she had other engagments to attend like Marie-Christine's husband (I am just assuming that is why they weren't there)

In the pictures showing all the grandchildren lined up on stage can any member list them in order? They aren't a family I follow and I can only pick out the children of Grand Duke Henri.

Thanks for posting these pictures! I especially like the first one in the dia slide, with the former, present and hereditairy grand duke, and a portrait of Grand Duchess Charlotte in the background.

It seems that the family is almost complete, which must have been very nice for the Grand Duke. I see the Belgian king and queen attended,a s did the dowager princess de Ligne (Jean's younger sister). A pity that they didn't identify the grand children in the pictures, as I find it difficult to keep some of them apart (esp. the ones of prince Jean).

A pity that prince Jean's 2nd wife did not attend, but considering the family's conservative views it is hardly surprising. Any idea if count Rodolphe of Limburg-Stirum attended? I don't see him in the pictures.

I'm not completely sure that I'm right on identifying them all, but I gave it a shot. Feel free to correct it

1st picture on stage (L-R): Archduke Alexander de Austria, Prince Leopold de Nassau, Princess Charlotte de Nassau, Prince Carl de Nassau, Archduke Christophe de Austria, Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg, Princess Maria-Annunciata of Liechtenstein, Prince Paul-Louis de Nassau, and Prince Felix of Luxembourg

2nd picture (L-R): Archduchess Marie-Christine de Austria, Prince Josef de Liechtenstein, Archduke Imre de Austria, Prince Louis of Luxembourg, Princess Tessy of Luxembourg, Prince Jean de Nassau, Prince Wenceslas de Nassau, & Princess Marie-Gabrielle de Nassau.

I may have gotten a few mixed up! Sorry

Thanks for the identification sugarbaby and Lindy! It seems that Adss Marie-Christine's husband was not there (or maybe he only attended the concert and not the photo shoot earlier).

Does anybody know what the hereditairy grand duke said in his speech?

It seems that Tessy was overdressed btw, the only one wearing a long dress.
