It does seem weird she didn't attend the 75th liberation anniversaries... Maybe the Cour is still tense following the government getting involved in staffing? Grand Duchess Maria Teresa was reportedly problematic so it could be a good idea to let special representative Jeannot Waringo start his review/make initial changes without her being around at first.

Only Grand Duke Henri has events next week according to the agenda which could be inaccurate...

I admit I'm suspicious of the Grand Ducal couple's 3-day attendance at the Angoulême film festival which was immediately after news of the staffing problem/PM's special representative. How convenient. 3 days! In 2017, the HGD couple only attended 2 days at the Cannes Film Festival to support Luxembourg's film industry.

There was nothing weird about the 3 days at the film festival as this was planned and announced months in advance and had nothing to do with the smear campaign the government launched in order to divert attention from the government problems. I just say: Tram (far more problems and more expensive than expected), the new stadium (costs exploded), secret databases about people that where used by the government when people applied for jobs...

I understand that the Grand Duchess will not accompany her husband to Japan for the new Emperor's enthronement ceremonies. Probably due to her known fear of flying.

It still saddens me that Henri will attend alone

I guess she could but others are attending alone- Haakon and Charles - so it would perhaps suggest that they too should.

During WW2 the whole Grand Ducal Family : the Grand Duchess Charlotte, her husband Prince Felix, and Hed Grand Duke Jean did a lot for their Country.
Not only the actual Grand Duchess should be there but Hed Grand Duke Guillaume too. They should commemorate their people who died in the line of duty.

Grand Duchess launched the a.s.b.l. "Stand Speak Rise Up!". This association pursues the objective of the forum initiated in March 2019 to fight against rape as a weapon of war and put an end to sexual violence in sensitive areas.

It is a video message! And great that she continues with this very useful initiative. More Royals need to focus on such things instead of only supporting museums.

I agree about the importance of Royals giving a voice to Human Rights issues.

But the Arts are important as well, and a Royal house can do well by supporting both.

A loss of emphasis on the arts=the death of a country's cultural heritage.

No one wants that.

I agree, a balance needs to be struck. The ducal family needs to be the embodiment of the the country’s past & present. It’s more political to determine the future in a narrow sense. The younger generation can stray into the human rights/ political (like Tessy did) but the sovereign couple need to be more neutral or safe (especially in a smaller country).
