Thank you, drimal, Hillary and HMQEII. These photos are a wonderful tribute to Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte. These pictures show her how I want to remember her - dedicated to her family and dedicated to her royal position. She was truly a grand lady.

Cathy Gomez 01-10-2005 09:07 PM

Yes, I think so - the Luxembourg GD family are well-respected.

gaggleofcrazypeople 01-10-2005 10:40 PM

The Grand Ducal family goes to many other royal families' events, so there should be many other royals attending.

HMQueenElizabethII 01-11-2005 02:22 AM

The funeral will take place this Saturday.
