Nice tributes in wet weather. That Letzebuergisch sounds very much like the local dialect spoken in Dutch Maastricht and German Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle), both close to the Grand-Duchy. Especially the "sound palette".

It wasn't announced where he died but probably in a hospital as he was the becase of pneumonie. Probably he was then brought to Berg Castle so that the Family could say goodbye to him in private there.

Who do you think will represent from Norway? My guess would be Queen Sonja.


By the way, is this an exception being made that a former head of state is granted a state funeral or is this common excercise? I thought only current, active heads of state are given a state funeral...?

The Norwegian Royal family will be represented by King Harald, Queen Sonja, and Princess Astrid.

A State Funeral formally means that the State organizes and pays for it. It happens pretty often, for an example for military who died in service. But also for a Margaret Thatcher.

The funerals of Queen Wilhelmina and Queen Juliana of the Netherlands were, despite all the massive participation and grand ceremonials, no State Funerals, as it were organized and paid for by the royal family. But that was an own choice, not because the State was unwilling or so.

The Belgian King Leopold III however was given a State Funeral indeed. His brother Prince Charles, who was for years de facto the head of state, was not given a State Funeral.

First of all, may he rest in peace. I had kinda hoped he could reach 100 and see a celebration of this milestone. But it was not meant to be and 98 is impressive, to watch your children grow, them having children and look back on a rich life. He is now reunited with his beloved ones

The Empress Farah Pahlavi is a stalwart attendee at Royal Funerals I'd be very surprised not to see her present.

Interesting, I didn't know that Anne had a personal friendship with GD Jean. It makes sense now for her to be the British representative.

So what we know about the attendance so far...

Sweden -
H.M The King
H.M The Queen

United Kingdom -
H.R.H The Princess Royal

Denmark / Greece -
H.M The Queen
H.M Queen Anne-Marie of Greece

Norway -
H.M The King
H.M The Queen
Princess Astrid Mrs Ferner

Belgium -
H.M The King
H.M The Queen
H.M King Albert II
H.M Queen Paola
More members likely to attend

Romania -
H.M Margarita The Custodian of the Crown.
H.R.H Prince Radu.

House of D'Orleans -
Jean Count of Paris

House of Braganza -
H.R.H Duke Duarte Pio and his family

The Dutch and Spanish Royal Families have so far not announced who will attend.

The Princely families of Lichtenstein and Monaco have also not announced attendance but Lichtenstein will definitely be there as GD Jean's daughter Princess Margaretha is married to Prince Nikolaus, brother of Fürst Hans Adam II.

The Jordanian and Thai Royal Families and the Japanese Imperial Family have also not announced if they will send someone. The ongoing Coronation in Thailand may stop the Thai Royal Family from sending someone and the senior members of the Japanese Imperial family is to greet the public on that day after the accession of the new Emperor and Empress.

How odd that the king and queen are not going to the funeral of a (former) Benelux co-monarch and the head of the other branch of the Nassau family. Grand Duke Jean was a regular guest at major Dutch weddings and funerals. But of course Queen Beatrix will have known him best.

It seems that Princess Esmeralda is not able to make it to her brother-in-law's funeral. Did she attend the funeral of Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte?
