And there was another boy except Princes Gabriel and Noah; it was probably 8-year-old Count Leopold of Limburg Stirum, eldest son of Count Rodolphe and Countess Marie Christine, nee Archduchess of Austria.

Queen Paola looks very dignified in her black lace mantilla.

Well, not very surprising as he had these kind of problems since a couple of years by now and, of course, continually aging is not helping either.

Generally I thought, my Goodness, everyone looked so old, many of them still relatively fit a few years ago, even frail... Even those I, a short time ago, would have called the "younger generation" of the Royals (apart from the 3 lads present and the Duchess of Brabant), so obviously suddenly aging...! Reminds me how old I myself slowly get.

The one in shorts?
I think that wasn't very appropiate, boys (no matter how young) should wear trousers for a funeral IMHO

I missed parts of it but caught the foreign royals leaving at the end so I assumed it was over but having just glanced back on a live stream it seems the Grand Ducal family are just leaving now, did they attend another smaller service or ceremony after the main one?

I thought (as ever) Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibylla were very graceful and polite in the way they ensured they were either side of the elder Queen Paola and king Albert II of Belgium when they got to the steps to help them down.

I believe they were replaying the Grand Ducal Family's exit from the cathedral. They were obviously the first to leave.



I don't think there was a separate ceremony as the commending of the body was already done at the end of the mass, but I may be wrong.

Yes, but was it broadcast ? Maybe what Tommy referred to was the family leaving the interment then. I didn't see it.

Grand Duke Jean trained for and served with the Irish Guards during World War 2. He was also their Honorary Colonel between 1984-2000.
His grandson Prince Sébastien is currently serving with the Irish Guards so the Luxembourg Royal Family have close ties with them.

"Highland Cathedral" was played when the coffin was carried out.

It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony. The entire Grand Duchy Family and members of almost every royal family in Europe were present. Now the Grand Duke Jean can rest in peace.

At Instagram of swedish royal court are short videos of Seraphim ringing and grand duke Jean's Coat of arms of the knight of the Order of the Seraphim taken from the Royal Palace to Riddarholm Church.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BxCplDVhupn/

Queen Silvia has got cold and couldn't attend.
- It's nothing serious but she felt so cold that she didn't want to risk infecting others. She is home and cures herself at Drottningholm, says Margareta Thorgren.
Thorgren says that it was for the other guests' sake Silvia chose not to go, but that the queen is very sad that she was not allowed to say goodbye to her friend.
- By the respect of others, the Queen chose to stay home. It's sad of course.
Margareta Thorgren also says that there are strong friendships between the two royal families and that the grand duke's death is a grief for the king who shared many interests with him.
- They had many common interests, including the scouts. They had several interests that tied them together.
The king himself has described the Grand Duke as a man he will remember with warmth.
- Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg was highly respected by me and my family. He was a faithful and devoted scout and it was a pleasure to share this interest with him. I will remember a very nice and friendly man, said the King in a comment to Svensk Damtidning.

Luxarazzi: Who Will Attend: The Official Guest List for the Funeral of Grand Duke Jean

Why are Greece, Romania and Bulgaria listed as former reigning Houses, but are Portugal, France, etc. listed as heads of families?

I understand that the last kings of Greece and Bulgaria are still amongst us, but that does not count for the last King of Romania.

I did miss any representative from Italy. Which is a bit remarkable as the last King and Queen of Italy were uncle and aunt to the late Grand-Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte

Jean joined the British army as a volunteer in the Irish guards, where after Sandhurst he was commissioned as a lieutenant and later captain in 1944. He took part in both the liberation of Brussels, and later of Luxembourg. He relinquished his commission in 1947, but in 1984 he was named colonel. He often road behind Elizabeth during Trooping.

Lovely touch seeing the boy scouts involved as well. Jean was named Chief scout back in 1945. He was very actively involved over the decades, even in his failing health. He was described as down to earth, when he was with the scouts he was simply chief scout, not the GD. He used to attend jamborees.

Might be just me but I find it a bit tacky having such photos taken only hours after the funeral of the Grand Duke.
