Was he very sad about this decision. Was he the first born? But I am glad that he did the honest thing and married his lady. Cudos to him

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.
