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

Hed Grand Duchess Stephanie wore as tiara a necklace belonging to the late Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte. Well done !

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