Prior to using Notre Dame de Luxembourg the Counts of Luxembourg had several burial sites most notably l'Abbaye Notre-Dame d'Orval which was pillaged,ransacked and burnt by French forces in 1793 and l'abbaye de Münster which was also destroyed.

The two Nassau Grand-Dukes before Marie-Adelheid were interred in the mausoleum of the House Nassau-Weilburg in the Stadt- und Schlosskirche in Weilburg.

The cover stone reads:

HOC SUB ALTARE
RESSURRECTIONEM EXSPESTANT
NOBILISSIMI
POTENTISSIMI AC ILLUSTRISSIMI
DOMINI ATQE DOMINAE
EX ANTIQUA STIRPE NASSOVICA
COMITES AC PRINCIPES NASSOVIAE-WILINIBURGENSIS
DUCES NASSOVIAE
MAGNI-DUCES LUCEMBURGENSIS
R.I.P.

(Under this altar
are awaiting the resurrection
the Noble
Powerful and Illustrious
Lords and Ladies
from the ancient Nassau branch
Counts and Princes of Nassau-Weilburg
Dukes of Nassau
Grand-Dukes of Luxembourg
RIP)

I believe only Guillaume lives in Luxembourg. Marie Astrid in Switzerland. Margareta in Belgium and Jean in Belgium as well.

King Willem I of the Netherlands, Grand-Duke of Luxembourg had so many properties in today's Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Nassau lands that he effectively ended the use of centuries old Nassau properties.

For an example, the oldest Nassau property in the Netherlands, the Castle of Breda, was just shoven away to be used as Royal Military Academy (which it still is today) and this was of course not the best use of this vulnerable and monumental building.

Vianden Castle, the oldest Nassau property was neglected and sold bit-by-bit. It eventually came back in the Nassau family, in ruinous state.

But of course King Willem I had a new Kingdom and he wanted to establish royal Courts in Brussels, Amsterdam and The Hague. It is understandable that residences "in the periphery" were overlooked.

Luckily Vianden Castle is back in awesome splendour.

This cathedral is no longer owned by the family. Currently, the Grand Dukes of Luxembourg and other family members are buried at Notre Dame Cathedral in Luxembourg.

The article you linked to states that the crypt is still owned by the Grand Ducal family and considered a Luxembourgish exterritorial area

According to what a person from Luxarazzi told me.
I'm not sure about legal ownership, but crypts remain Luxembourgish territory, so I believe there is a legal arrangement that preserves access only to the family.

A truly beautiful building but not the most private or secure locations.

The reception/meeting rooms are lovely and have a nice warmth to them. I like the stain glass windows in the first room:)

The heraldic arms are quite beautiful on those windows.

The Grand Ducal Palace is very beautiful. The rooms are fantastic.
I hope one day I can visit the Palace.
