Death and Funeral of Grand Duke Jean: April 23 & May 4, 2019

My sympathies to the royal family and the people of Luxembourg....

Official announcement:

Message de Son Altesse Royale le Grand-Duc - Cour Grand-Ducale de Luxembourg - Avril 2019

In English:

"It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of my beloved father, His Royal Highness Grand Duke John, who has left us in peace, surrounded by the affection of his family."

Henri, Grand Duke of Luxembourg

Very sad and devastating news even though as expected. I have been keeping logged in the Forums every hour since the news of his deteriorating condition in hope for a miracle. May he rest in peace and my utmost thoughts are with the entire Grand Ducal family during this difficult time.

Very sad news indeed. My mother-in-law went into hospital for the same complaint 3 weeks ago and passed away last week. Same age as the Grand Duke.

I had an eerie feeling that he was gone just now, so I signed onto TRF and sure enough.

The end of a long, amazing life. RIP, Soldier Prince.
