Future Titles and Duties of the Younger Siblings
 
i know guilliaume will be the grand duke and his future wife will be the grand duchess... what happens to felix and the other children, do the have royal duties for life... will the people they marry become princess or a prince...

carlota 08-18-2004 07:52 PM

yes, the people who they marry will be prince or princess of luxembourg and nassau. however, there aren't many official duties for the princes.

gaggleofcrazypeople 08-18-2004 08:24 PM

I'm guessing that their children won't be princes or princesses

hillary_nugent 08-19-2004 03:34 AM

In Luxembourg are there ranks below Prince/Princess? Such as dukedoms, earldoms and all the other stuff the English have? Person the children of the current princes' and princess will become them ^__^

carlota 08-19-2004 03:49 AM

their children will also be princes or princesses of luxembourg and nassau, although they are forced to 'abdicate' their rights of succession because they marry an unsuitable person (as happened with prince jean, who married helena vestur).

hillary_nugent 08-19-2004 03:59 AM

I was wondering to the Luxembourg Royals what is deemed 'acceptable' ? Other royals like well? or rich people? :P

Just wondering, what are some yearly events that the Grand Ducal family, esp. Guillaume, attends every year?

What was the problem with Helena Vestur?

carlota 08-23-2004 11:45 AM

i don't think his parents didn't like her, but their first daughter was born before the marriage.

Isabel 08-23-2004 05:42 PM

I see. So, Jean gave up his succession right, but his children and wife were still given the titles of Prince and Princess? Is that correct?

carlota 08-23-2004 06:16 PM

in fact no. as other grandchildren of jean and josephine charlotte were given the title of prince/princess of nassau and luxembourg, the children of helene and jean were given the titles of count/countess of luxembourg, and not nassau.

gaggleofcrazypeople 08-24-2004 06:19 PM

gaggleofcrazypeople 08-28-2004 06:21 PM

bad_barbarella 08-31-2004 10:42 PM

hillary_nugent 09-01-2004 03:09 AM

How is being a 'grand duchery' any different from other monarchies?

gaggleofcrazypeople 09-01-2004 07:28 PM

Grand Duke or Duchess instead of a King or Queen.

carlota 09-01-2004 08:19 PM

well... there may be more differences. i don't think it's only a question of titles.
