Lovely photos of the celebrations.
Is there any information why only the Grand Ducal couple and the Hereditary Grand Ducal couple attended the National Day events this year? Missed seeing the whole GD family!

One can see that the House of Nassau (Luxembourg) has shared traditions with the House of Orange-Nassau.

Look at the Hofdame (the name is the same in Letzebuergisch, German and Dutch) and the Aide-de-Camp: picture

The Luxembourgian Hofdame wore a nassaublue chiffre on her lapels. The same chiffre is used in the Netherlands: picture.

The Aide-de-Camp wears an orange sash around the waist, a distinction for officers in Luxembourg. The same is used in the Netherlands: picture.

When the Orange-Nassau Grand-Dukes were succeeded by Nassau relatives (1890) the traditional uniforms of the Luxembourg Court remained unchanged, nassaublue with orange elements: picture.

I love the awareness of the dynastical history.

No official information although Luxarazzi speculated about drawing less attention to Louis and Tessy's divorce.

Thank you for pointing it out to us. I love little tidbits like this that might seem unimportant or even unnoticeable to many of us but have deep historical roots.

The ties of the two families are evident indeed. It is not a coincidence that Q. Beatrix' first state visit and last state visit in Europe both went to Luxembourg. And that the first introduction visit of King WA also went to Luxembourg.

On a political level there is still some connection too. Lux. Prime Minister Bettel represented Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte a while ago in the European counsil when Rutte was absent. Rutte represented Bettel in the counsil yesterday, as Bettel was unable to join due to the national day.

It is only a pity that because Queen Beatrix last State Visit was to Luxembourg King Willem-Alexander could not make his first State Visit to Luxembourg.

Where can I see old photos of the Luxembourg National Day? I would love to see photos of this event from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Evening: Claire is picture perfect. Stephanie's jewels are just too much and I'm not sure why Alexandra thought this was a good dress for the occassion; of wait, it's too cold let's add something yo cover up.
