Awe, that's unfortunate. More family members attend National Day than New Year Receptions.

I assume Princess Alexandra is substituting for GD Maria Teresa this year and not a regular appearance. Hopefully the Cour encourages the others to attend but I imagine it's difficult as Luxembourg's New Year reception varies from early to mid-January, not a set day like January 1st for Japan and Denmark.

ETA: However, I am glad the GDF decided to upgrade New Year's Reception instead of simply cancelling National Day gala.

I also read this on Twitter, but they were speculating on what I understood.
I hope the national day gala will continue, but this new year reception format will continue as well.

I'll miss the National Day gala very much, it's a great tiara highlight before the summer break. But seeing white tie at the New Year Reception is really lovely. Both ladies looked great, though I'd have loved to see the other siblings as well.

Now I see why Queen Beatrix did not made Stéphanie a Dame Ordre du Lion d'Or de la Maison de Nassau: her State Visit was in March 2012 and Stéphanie married in October 2012. The then Stéphanie comtesse de Lannoy did not take part in this State Visit. That will be the explanation.

But when King Willem-Alexander visited Luxembourg, he did not create Stéphanie in the shared Nassau Order either. Instead she became a Dame Grand-Cross in the Order of Orange-Nassau, see picture: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dd5n0DbUwAAve9f.jpg

Yes I agree Tilla C but thankfully we have the New Years Reception and its a white tie/Tiara gala.

RTL Today - Grand Ducal Commitments: Royal Family will be selective on attending events at this time
Quote:
Though no official statement will state that events are cancelled or postponed due to the risks of Coronavirus, Luxembourg's Royals have pulled out of some scheduled appointments this week.

[...]

In the case of the Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume's scheduled appearance at the 50th Anniversary of "Clearstream Banking Luxembourg" gala being cancelled, this can be related to the COVID-19 protocals in place.

This coming Friday (13 March) was earmarked for an audience with Madame Maria Teresa Fernández de la Vega, President of the Spanish Council of State at the Palace, as Grand Duke Henri was to open the doors to the Palace. Due to the current coronavirus situation, this visit has been put on hold.

A visit by Andorra's Prime Minister, Xavier Espot Zamora, on Monday 16 March looked set to go ahead early on Tuesday - but has subsequently been postponed. Grand Duke Henri was scheduled to meet the travelling party at the Royal Palace.

THE COURT MARSHAL COMMUNICATES
The Grand Ducal Court was contacted about a Twitter account circulating in the name of S.A.R. the Grand Duke heir: @JeanNassau

This is a fake.
We ask the public not to give any credit and not to act.

In the presence of the Hereditary Grand Duke, Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Prince Leopold of Nassau, Prince Paul-Louis of Nassau was sworn in by François Bausch, Minister of Defence, as an officer of the Luxembourg Army after completing his training at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.

Good to see that the HGD took the time to attend his cousin's ceremony. And nice to see Paul-Louis' father prince Guillaume and his middle brother prince Léopold as well.

Grand Duke Henri and the Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume received the “Sandhurst Medal” during an audience of a delegation from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland represented by HE Mr. John Marshall, Ambassador in Luxembourg.
Established in 2016, the "Sandhurst Medal" recognizes international students who have completed officer training at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, Great Britain. In 1975, the Grand Duke became an officer while HGD Guillaume has been since 2002

Why didn't Sébastien get a Sandhurst Medal? He also completed his training at Sandhurst...

Was GD Jean's 95th birthday the final festive time that the whole family got together? Wort has a helpful overview of all his children and grandchildren (mostly photographed per family).
