A State Visit--I assume there will be tiaras???????

grim_lady 03-16-2008 11:12 PM

If there is a state dinner then there's a good chance for some tiaras.

Hanna Regina 03-17-2008 12:56 PM

Maybe even two occasions! First the state dinner and then the Grand Ducal couple's dinner for their host. It's a pity they won't bring any children. I wouldn't mind two handsome Princes to go with CP Victoria and Madeleine... That would be something to look at!

Is a pain that we have so few news of the Family Ducal Grand, there neither are not pictures, do you know about agencies of pictures that have pictures of the Grands Dukes?

grim_lady 04-10-2008 12:02 AM

There aren't many websites that focus on the family due to the fact that they aren't as famous as say...the British royals. Not to worry though; most picture sites that host photos on royal families will have a few from this one.

Also, I've always felt that this family is pretty good about privacy.

Anyway, check their official website.

My favourite football team CS Grevenmacher won the cup (against Victoria Rosport)! :clap:

I hope there will be alot of nice pics from the Grand Ducal family at the Olympic Games next month.

Yesterday they were at the Final Mass held by Pope Benedict XVI for WYD 2008 in Sydney,Australia.The cameras showed a brief shot of them both.

greek101 07-21-2008 09:51 AM

Which members of the family were here(in Australia)

gabys 07-22-2008 01:43 PM

I just got to see the Grand Duke and Grand for the other members I'm not sure =)

When I was at the Athens Olympic as a volunteer we were notified one afternoon that a Royal had to come through a secure part of the enclave because his aide mixed up the exits where his chauffer was waiting for him. Well, I perked up waiting to see who the Royal was. There comes GD Henri with Alexandra by his side. I was struck at how close they were walking next to each other. We escorted them to the exit and at no moment did he smile or acknowledge our presence. They got on the car that was waiting for them, the body guard was the only who thanked us and they took off. I was so dissapointed at his rudeness. We felt totally invisible...........
All those smiles and waving I see in photos are for the magazines I suppose....

Shaiya 07-23-2008 12:28 PM

That sucks. But maybe he just has so many people around him all day that he finds it tiring or he's just very protective of his daughter. Or maybe he is a mean grumpy fellow. Who knows?

Nitefeatherz 07-23-2008 11:12 PM

Maybe he was having a bad day? Or perhaps he was just focused on where he was going or the fact that they chose the wrong exit and getting to the car. You never know. You can't always judge a person's personality based on one meeting.

greek101 07-24-2008 09:06 AM

Plus you can't expect the guy to have a smile on his face all the time, everyone is entitled to be grumpy sometimes.
