Nice pics hillary_nuggent! Thanks alot for sharing them!:)
Especially the winter pics and the one of Henri on the boat.:D
And alexandra is so sweet on the horse!:o

Here are some pics I have from a book:

gaggleofcrazypeople 12-28-2004 12:39 AM

So anyway, those pics of Sebastien clinging to Guillaume are sooo cute!
Those boat pics look like Felix, but I hear Guillaume is into sailing.

msfroyste 12-28-2004 01:42 AM

thanx drimal. i've never seen those pics you posted from the magazine. they're so natural looking and not "staged". it's very refreshing to see a royal family doing "normal" things in a "normal" way. they seem like they're all so close, which is a wonderful thing.

gaggleofcrazypeople 12-28-2004 10:23 PM

I've just noticed something. In some of those pics, Guillaume seems separated from the rest of the family. Does it seem odd to anyone else?

Images.....:D

msfroyste 12-29-2004 01:52 AM

thanx hillary_nugent for the pics. i've seen most of these. and gaggleofcrazypeople, i have noticed that guillaume does seem to be "isolated" so to speak, from the rest of his family in pics. speaking from the position of an eldest child, i too seem to do that in most family pics, even though it usually isn't on purpose. perhaps it's just a subconscious thing.

hillary_nugent 12-29-2004 03:03 AM

yeah sorry the pictures are old...but well they're here just in case any one ever wants to go down memory lane hehehe ^____^

i guess Guillaume may seem 'isolated' because he has more responsibilities being both the eldest child and the future Grand Duke...he probably has alot on his shoulders compared to his siblings....

msfroyste 12-29-2004 03:42 AM

it's quite nice to see how hot they've all become with age. including henri and m-t. the whole family's like wine, they're all getting better with age.

The first one of the last photos with the dogs is my favourite picture! If it was not so big I would have made it as avatar.:o

And yes her living is very very beautiful! I found pictures in a magazine from the interior of the castles and palaces and it is very impressing!:)

Perhaps I will scan them and post them in the thread of symbols and functions.

oh can you scan the pictures!!! it would be VERY much appreciated! i would love to see how lovely the rest of the house is!! ^______^

gaggleofcrazypeople 12-29-2004 10:35 PM

Hillary- you are amazing! These pics are amazing!
But, does anyone notice that Guillaume seems to wear really baggy clothes when all the other men in his family seem to wear tighter clothing?

gaggleofcrazypeople 12-29-2004 11:10 PM

Odd question- Are there any pics where you can see Felix's fingers?

hillary_nugent 12-29-2004 11:24 PM

You are welcome people ^___^ but you really should thank the free access of photo agencies...hehehe i'm just taxing their pictures and posting it here ^____^

@katielouise...sorry mate i don't know what magazine those pictures are from...i just found it some website... ^___^

@gaggleofcrazyppeople...hahahaha odd question yes but i will try and find pics with his fingers in them hahahaha...any particular reason why you want to see them??? :P

oh and one more thing...the bagginess of his clothes i think is because he is slightly chubbier than his siblings... ^___^

*flies off to look for pictures of Felix's hands* hehehe

gaggleofcrazypeople 12-29-2004 11:32 PM

My mind is way too random. But it seems like there are mostly pics of from the sholders up.

It looks like Sébastien was about to get in the way of the camera so Louis (or whoever) has grabbed hold of him!

Here are some of the larger pics from Henri and Sébastien's bday, which I managed to swipe before ibl.se changed their format (to stop people stealing them). I also added one of Maria Teresa scrutinising Guillaume's beard... :D

as you can see, even she has good taste when it comes to facial hair. i wonder if it was her who encouraged him to loose it. hehe

KatieLouise 01-01-2005 05:46 AM

I think MT doesn't look too impressed. She's doing that tactful thing that mothers do of not criticisng their children openly but saying with her body language "That looks very silly, dear"

gaggleofcrazypeople 01-01-2005 10:26 PM

She is an amazing mom!

KatieLouise 01-02-2005 10:49 PM

She sure is, with - it seems - five well-raised, well-adjusted children! Maybe when Mother's Day comes around we should dedicate a thread to great pics of her with her children! :)

Yeah, it reminded me of Cinderella as well.

msfroyste 01-06-2005 01:43 AM

she looks nice in it, even though it's a little too 80's for my tastes. btw, i like mt better with darker hair.

KatieLouise 01-06-2005 02:30 AM

Yeah, it does look 80s - still she looks rather glamorous! Like Cinderella in her blue dress as Hillary and gaggleofcrazypeople said. I don't actually know when this pic was taken, unfortunately.

msfroyste 01-06-2005 02:41 AM

there are some more pics of the grand ducal couple over at the glittering royal events msg board. http://members3.boardhost.com/Oranjes

if you want to see them, you'd better hurry b/c they're at the bottom of the board and they're about to cycle out.

Thank you too, drimal! :) Wow! Can Maria Teresa play the guitar? She's so accomplished! I love picture. I also love the group picture at Mary and Frederik's wedding - it's great to see the royal families all together - one big happy family!

hillary_nugent 01-06-2005 11:09 PM

Thanks for the pics Drimal! I totally agree with you Katie i love it when the Royals gather together ^_____^ You can see MT is a pretty social and open person the way she talks to Mary ^___^

msfroyste 01-07-2005 01:30 AM

mt is one of those royals you can look at and go,"we could talk about anything and it'll be ok b/c she's cool," type of person. she exudes down-to-earthness as do all of her children which is a wonderful thing. she and her children look like you won't get beaten down in the name of Jesus if you say something wrong to them. hehe.

Some very nice pictures of Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte and their young (adult) family. (In the last picture Jean and Josephine-Charlotte are pictured with Beatrix of the Netherlands.) Sorry, but I don't know the years for these pictures.

gaggleofcrazypeople 01-14-2005 10:14 PM

Very nice pics. The first five look like they are from the seventies. They next two look like they are from the nineties. And the last one looks like it is from the late fifties.

Hullo,

I found these pics looking for the funeral photos and just thought to post them, if no other, for comic value. No doubt, MT is a lovely lady BUT WHAT ON EARTH WAS SHE THINKING??? Also, one with Jean-Claude Juncker and a nice one of Felix. I don't know about you, but to me Alexandra really looks like a daddy's girl. She is always hugging her father in picture, and generally seems more affectionate towards him than towards MT.

MT and HEnri are definitely still in love ^__^ but i think Lisa meant Alexandra is more affectionate to her father than her mother.

msfroyste 01-21-2005 12:45 AM

well, alex's the only girl. before my sister was born, i was most definately a daddy's girl. besides, you know they probably spoil her rotten, but at the same time she's probably really tuff, considering the fact that all her siblings are boys and she probably doesn't take any kind of crap from them.

hillary_nugent 01-21-2005 01:12 AM

being the only girl and the baby of the family i am pretty much a daddy's girl but like msfroyste said having grown up around guys has toughen me up after years of being a dummy for their karate hahahaha...

H! Yes, what I meant was that ALEXANDRA seems more affectionate towards her dad than towards her mother - and yes, you are right about MT and Henri.

I don't know if you or anyone here has seen the documentary about the king of Denmark whose children and grandchildren now rule every kingdom in Europe. In it, the late JC mentioned her parents, princess Astrid and king Leopold; they had been apart for some time, and when the ship she returned in Belgium hit the docks, she run down the bridge and straight to her husbands arms and kissed him. She said it was the first ever such public display of royal affection, and she spoke very warmly, happily about it. So Henri has been probably brought up to that. I have noticed though that there are great many pictures of them leaning over to kiss but not one in which their lips actually touch. Does that indicate that the Luxies are still a bit uptight about that...?

lisamaria 01-21-2005 06:54 AM

Annoying really...

...but here a couple photos that hold relevancy to the message above. Or not. Is it just me or does Henri have a seriously nice bum? And I also noticed that his eyes might be green. I think MT is pregnant with Felix in the pictures, and was probably not very happy when they were published.

Nathalian 01-21-2005 09:54 AM

What she´s doing in the pictures?? Sometimes, MT lose sense....

rere 01-21-2005 04:37 PM

The date on the photo is July 13, 1992. She was expecting Sebastien.

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume (born 11 November 1981)
Prince Felix (born 3 June 1984)
Prince Louis (born 3 August 1986)
Princess Alexandra (born 16 February 1991)
Prince Sebastien (born 16 April 1992)

Nathalian 01-21-2005 04:51 PM

Rere......if the picture is from July of 1992, how she was still pregnant from Sebastian if he as born in April of the same year?? Maybe,you meant July of 1991....

KatieLouise 01-21-2005 08:19 PM

Oh, I'm terribly sorry, Lisa!! :o I see what you mean - Daddy's little girl rather than Mummy's little girl - I'd agree with that. ;)

KatieLouise 01-21-2005 08:27 PM

I bet they didn't know these beach photos were being taken - nice to see Henri and Maria Teresa mucking around and having a fun time! :D

pasiphaé 03-02-2005 10:19 PM

I don't know! But I read in a magazine that Joséphine-Charlotte did.

But I didn't know Henri and Maria Teresa were hunting.

I was surprised when I saw this picture.

msfroyste 03-03-2005 04:57 AM

i knew j-c did and henri does hunt, but mt is surprising. hmmm

gaggleofcrazypeople 03-03-2005 07:14 PM

I thought they were supposed to be modern.

msfroyste 03-04-2005 06:19 AM

hunting is still "modern". there are members of my family that still hunt and they enjoy it thouroughly, although i don't participate myself. people in the developing world and in the developed world still hunt and i don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as ppl eat what they kill instead of killing the animal for sport. i think that's what henri and j-c did( killed animals for food) b/c i remember reading somewhere that in luxembourg, venison is a popular item of food.
