Spouse of Grand Duchess Charlotte, Prince Felix died 35 years ago with 77 years

In my newspaper there was a remembrance today that Prince Felix, the spouse of Grand Duchess Charlotte (died in 1985), had gone away on 8th April 1970, accuarately 35 years ago.

Prince Felix of Luxembourg had the titles Prince of Bourbon de Parme, Prince of Nassau. He was burried on 11th April 1970 at 15 o'clock.
Only one year before, in 1969 the couple had celebrated its Golden wedding.

Below is a picture with Grand Duchess Charlotte and Prince Felix.

The poster features several scantily dressed Brazilian Samba dancers. “It’s a sexy poster”, said Helminger, commenting on the daring design.

Okay, if there is someone here who has seen the poster, please take a photo and send it here. I sooo want to see it... :D

I attach couple things I scanned from Point de Vue magazine. Enjoy.

Do you know the week of publication for the magazine where you found the last picture?

gaggleofcrazypeople 04-12-2005 05:57 PM

What do the captions say?

simplicity8318 04-12-2005 09:59 PM

Loose translation, mind you, I quit taking french classes a year and a half ago.

In the picture with Felix, Alexandra and Louis, it says that

80% of soccer balls (footballs) are made in Pakistan by child workers. Three of the five children of Grand-Duke Henri visited the Transfair-Minka society who's trying to adopt regulations in the countries where these children work. It was an awakening experience for the children of Maria-Theresa who supports them (meaning the society I guess).

In Guillaume's pic:

Very elegant, Hereditary Grand duke Guillaume of Luxembourg handed out the Prize for the Federation of Craftsmen (?) 2004. Very professionally, Guillaume congratulated each of the laureates for the quality of their work.


Anybody more proficient in French, feel free to correct it.

Hello!

The one with Guillaume was published some three weeks ago; the other in last November I think. If you want the exact dates, I can check.

Thanks for the photos and articles, everyone. Guillaume looks so good in that suit. :) I really hope there are photos from Henri's party.

Thank you for the photos. Why didn't GD Jean attend? Or Felix, for that matter?

gaggleofcrazypeople 04-13-2005 06:26 PM

Is it just me or does it seem like Guillaume has lost some weight?
