I don't congratulate te official photograph, Queen Paola is hiding the Grand-Duc's daugher Magaretha.
And secondly for the picture of the 3 generations , he should have seen that the old Grand Duke was not sitting well. He should have sit on a chair and be straight as always . He did Sandhurst!
Third , why no pictures of him and his children and him with his grandchildren.
I do not understand why the King and the Queen of the Belgians so as the Dowager Princess de Ligne were on the first row!

As for possible pregnancy for Marie-Christine: Is she the first from the left on the 4th photo? I don't associate them well. In fact this girl looks pregnant.

If King Albert was there, his half sisters (Maria Christina & Maria Esmeralda) should have been invited also; the "jubileer" is also their brother-in-law. Half, but brother.

Yes, that is Marie Christine and yes she looks pregnant.

Well there are pictures from different angles taken by different photographers. As far as I know there wasn't released an official photograph by the palace. So in one pictures Margaretha is barely visible, in another photo it's Tessy who is hiden behind another person.

He's 90 years old... In recent pictures he usually sits like this, perhaps he cares more to sit comfortable than to look his best

Because they chose to. They had a picture taken of the former Grand Duke, the current and the future. Additionally they had a picture of the whole family, which btw is really nice because I hadn't seen some of them for quite some time, the picture of Jean, Henri and MT was taken in advance.

Albert is a reigning King and you usually don't hide him in the last row. Alix is Grand Duke Jeans sister and it is quite common to put the older people in the first or second row.
I think it is just a normal set up for a (royal) family picture - the jubilar comes in the middle, the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess next to him and next to them other attending monarchs. In the second row there are the future Grand Duke as well as the siblings of the current and former Grand Duke in the rows behind the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Grand Duke Jean.

Does someone know why Prince Jeans wife Diane de Guerre wasn't there? It seems like she isn't very well accepted by the family, according to articles the only one who attended Jean and Diane's weddings was Prince Guillaume.

In the middle as you said it's HGD Guillaume, on the left side it's Prince Felix, on the right side Archduchess Marie-Christine of Austria, married Countess of Limburg-Stirum and next to her it's Prince Josef of Liechtenstein. All of them are grandchildren of Grand Duke Jean

It is sad that Prince Jean Jr is alone, he seems not to be happy about that !
Queen Fabiola was not there either , she must be ill ?
On these important event the children of Leopold III and Lilian Baels are never invited.

You can watch part of it here. I don't think the whole thing was filmed. This report has part of Guillame's speech and everyone singing happy birthday and part of the family photocall:
RTL.lu

It starts around 2:30ish
