Cool Henri in the Games

Hello folks,
I have been absent for a little while, but thanks for all the welcome messages. I saw GD Henri in the second last evening of the Olympics, as he had been given a big honorable deed - he gave out the medals for the winners of men's 4x100m relay. He looked handsome but also somehow stiff in his blue suit. LAst week, the Spanish Hola! magazine published pictures from the opening ceremonies and he and GD Maria Teresa were in one.

Also, in the same week's Semana magazine, there is an article about the christening of the baby Jean of Guillaume, and there are pictures of the whole family. The kids of Guillaume and Sibilla are cute enough to eat, btw. Maria Teresa doesn't look very happy there though...

Love,
Lisa

I saw the medal ceremony on televsion and I didn't even notice that it was Henri who gave out the medals. Okay, call me "embarassed" and completly unobservant. :o

I don't really think MT looked unhappy at the christening... but she did look different.

Wink pic...

The picture I mentioned was published in lat week's Semana magazine (it's a Spanish gossip mag, not quite as glossy as Hola though), but the web site www.semana.es doesn't feature any articles. If you don't tell anyone, I'll try to scan the pics and post them. MT is very stylish there, for a change, and not of any too weird colour

I think the christening might have its own thread. If not, then there are photos in the thread about them. Any photo of her from the christening is a good example.

I can't believe I haven't seen this thread before. Anyway, thanks to all the people who posted all those pictures. Hillary, I was at the 2000 Olympics as well and I didn't see anyone remotely royal. =( I would love to go to Beijing and see the Games but work for an Olympic team doing translating and that kind of thing. It would be such a good experience and you would get a special pass to see 'people' (royal people).

Ooh, when I was at the swimming, I did meet some members of the Angolan swimming team. =)

Speaking of destiny. The University of Miami Ohio has hosted Guillaume more than once in the last year. The schools French program offers a semester or two at one of Luxembourg's academy's. You stay with a Luxembourg family and go to school at the same cost as going to Miami Ohio. I applied there 2 years ago but couldn't come up with $20,000 a year.:(

That would have been a good experience studying overseas. It's a shame it was so expensive. =(
