Does anyone know of any recent pics of Henri's brother Jean & his family?

gaggleofcrazypeople 08-28-2004 08:56 PM

He gave up his rights to the throne, so we don't know alot about him. He and his twin sister have a thread here.

bad_barbarella 09-16-2004 09:34 PM

gaggleofcrazypeople 09-16-2004 10:07 PM

gaggleofcrazypeople 11-10-2004 11:39 PM

the children of Prince Jean aren't princess/princes. They are Counts/Countess de Nassau as is his wife.

er .... he didn't give it up all that long ago.

and I would tend to think if things were changed where "it happened today", he would still have had to give up his rights. Luxembourg is a very religious country and imo a "sea change" cannot come about until at least the (former) Grand Duke Jean passes on.

gaggleofcrazypeople 11-12-2004 09:12 PM

Yes, but it has been a while.
