More on the cost of the GDF. Two deputies questioned spending after the recent personnel changes.
Quote:
Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, recalled that "private activities and missions
official of the Grand Ducal House are clearly differentiated and that the State only participates in the financing of official missions." The state budget thus takes the costs of operating the official part of the grand ducal House. For 2016, the budget dedicated to these operating costs amounted to 615,280 euros, said the head of government.
...
The state budget also finances the costs of representation of Grand Duke Henri, the Grand Duke Jean and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, amounting to 1.1 million euros. The civil list, endowment that allows the Grand Duke to exercise its Head of State to function independently is it fixed at 1.181 million euros. Overall, the total planned spending for the Grand Duke House amounted to 2016, to 10 million euros, representing 0.07% of the country's overall budget.
The GDF pay taxes although there are exceptions.

wise to send sebastian only of the younger generation. as the only male of the family who is not married, he is a clever choice to send to zika-infected brazil, particularly seeing that all the princesses of luxembourg (stephanie, claire, tessy and alexandra) are of childbearing age - and some may potentially be trying for a baby in the not so distant future.
