Luxembourg lost his beloved Drand Duke who lived nearly a Century.
He still attend Events shortly before his death as the Funerals of his sister Alix de Ligne.
With his Mother the Grabd Duchess Charlotte , they were luxembourg greatest Monarchs.
May He rest in peace , he will never be forgotten in his Country.

When was the last State Funeral in Luxembourg?

Have any online obituaries been published? I hope to read more about his life and reign; he seems to have lived through tremendous transitions in Luxembourg.

Don't know if the funeral of Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte was an official State Funeral. If not it would be the one of Grand Duchess Charlotte in 1985.

Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte had a State Funeral as Consort.

Grand Duke Jean was already in the Cathedral. On the first row King Albert II , Queens Paola and Queen Fabiola and on the second row her Children.

Information:
The state funeral will take place on Saturday, May 4, at 11am at the Cathédral Notre-Dame.
Luxembourg will observe a national period of morning until May 4 at 6pm. All flags have been lowered to half-mast.

The government met today at 10am to observe a minute of silence and discuss the plans for the coming days.

At 12pm, Grand Duke Henri and Prime Minister Xavier Bettel met at Château de Berg.
At 12.15pm, the bells of all the Catholic churches in Luxembourg rang for 15 minutes in honour of Grand Duke Jean.

Today's parliamentary session in Luxembourg as well as several press conferences by the government and other organisations in the Grand Duchy have been postponed.

Later today (Tuesday) will see the removal of Grand Duke Jean's banner as a Knight of the Garter in St. George's Chapel, Windsor. The same will happen for the Order of the Seraphim in Stockholm after the funeral.

On Saturday, April 27, at 5pm the Archbishop of Luxembourg Jean-Claude Hollerich will celebrate a special mass in honour of Grand Duke Jean. All Catholic parishes in the Grand Duchy are asked to keep the former Grand Duke in their prayers this weekend.

Did he pass away at his residence, or was he in hospital?

Sad, but not unexpected news.

RIP to a great man. He served his country for decades with honor and strength. His presence will be missed by so many. Inspiration to all.

It was expected but still such sad news to wake up to before work. Glad he was surrounded by his loved ones. Sad year for the family, losing both him and Alix. One sibling left in the family. Reunited with his wife finally, and all those who have gone before him.

I read on Twitter that as a member of the Order of The Garter, his banner will be removed from St. George's Chapel today?

I hadn't realized that was the customary thing to when a member of the Order dies.
