The children not missing school makes sense. After all, they just did a public appearance, so it won't be that bad.

Even if one did get to go to the Turino Olympics, what are the chances of actually spotting this royal fam??? There must be hundreds of thousands of people there. Also, you could be in a total different part from where they are. And can't there be numerous events taking place all at one given time?

LaPlusBelle 02-07-2006 06:39 PM

Everyone might be at the opening ceremony. Possibly?
So yeah, running into them would be difficult, but seeing them at the bigger events like the opening ceremony (if they all go) won't be so difficult.

I mentioned this in the other thread right before it got closed. But Luxembourg only has one athlete at the games Fleur Maxwell ladies figure skating. She is carrying the flag at opening ceremonies but her event isn't until the last few days. So opening, closing and the ladies long and short events would be the only ones they would be at (if they go) everything else would just be guessing.

I think it would be really nice though if one of them did go to the figure skating.

RoseMary 02-08-2006 09:25 PM

Yes, it would be nice to see them there. Especially with just one person. I find it difficult to believe just because they are a small country that no one else could go.

gaggleofcrazypeople 02-08-2006 10:37 PM

But is it really that important to them if only one person is competing from Luxembourg?

we need new family pictures of them.... and i sincerely hope it includes Louis..

gaggleofcrazypeople 02-12-2006 03:18 PM

Yes, that pic is getting old. They need another event to take a family pic with the whole family.

grim_lady 02-12-2006 06:02 PM

I was thinking about the idea of a new family picture and I was wondering: seeing as how Louis' child would most likely have a christening would it be a private or public event and if it were a public event would the family take a group photo to sort of commeorate the occasion?

Well, if we follow the exmple of Louis' uncle Prince Jean, it will definitely be private. Jean and his [now ex-] wife Helene had their first child, Princess Marie Gabrielle, about a year before they got married [Prince Philippe of Belgium is her godfather], and it was very definitely completely quiet and private. Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte didn't even attend.
Now, I'm sure that Henri and Maria Teresa will be there for Louis' child's christening, but I'm also pretty sure that it's not going to be a grand public event. The baby more than likely won't even have a title.

gaggleofcrazypeople 02-13-2006 05:14 PM

I doubt it would be public since it will be born out of wedlock.

hmm... Princesss Marie Gabrielle is somehow condemned by her family (her grandparents by not attending the christening, i mean), but have a future king as a godfather (philippe of belgium) ?? wow.. that's a contradiction.. :D

even though it most likely be a private event, i hope we still get a least several released pictures of Louis' child's christening.

Philippe is Jean's cousin, remember. They seem to be very close. :)

msfroyste 02-14-2006 02:03 AM

well, a few mos back, someone said, on here i believe, that most of the family rallied behind jean, the obvious objectors being j-c and gd jean, at the Christening and at the wedding. all in all, they seem pretty supportive of each other, which is a very good thing. let's hope they'll be just as supportive of louis.

FYI, Prince Philippe of Belgium is not Marie Gabrielle's godfather. He is godfather to second child, Constantin of Nassau, who was born after Jean and Helene were married.

:eek: Just imagine Prince Louis and his girlfriend would marry in one or two years and then have another child, then the second born would have a title and the first one would stay without or am I wrong?

I think that if Louis got married, then it would be the case of all of his children having titles [regardless whether they were born before or after the marriage]. I'm not totally sure though. :)

I'm the one who posted that bit of misleading news....sorry. :)
I saw photos of the baptism of one of Jean and Helene's children with Philippe standing as godfather and the caption said that it was Marie Gabrielle's baptism. Ooops.

Didn't all of Jean's children get the title of count/ess after he an Helen got married? I suppose it would be the same for Louis.

msfroyste 02-15-2006 02:37 AM

thanks mathilde. just been having problems(good days and bad ones) with my left hand, and type whenever possible- that's all. anywho, louis' baby(s), she could be having twins, we don't/won't know until tessy gives birth and twins do run in his family, will be mr/miss nassau- if he and/or tessy decide to use it as their baby's surname. more than likely, they won't be granted any kind of a title unless henri sees fit to do so- which would be more than likely count/ess of nassau, which would be the case unless, or even if, louis and tessy marry. who knows. we all shall have to wait and see.
