No celebrations of the National Day this year as Luxembourg has extended its temporary ban on mass gatherings deeper into the summer, with no large events permitted until 31 July

Follow the live broadcast of the official ceremony organized on the occasion of the birthday of the Grand Duke Henri.

As a reminder: Due to the health situation, the public celebration was canceled.

No Grand Duchess? Doesn't she usually attend the National Day events?

It seems that only Grand Duke Henri is present. The other members of the Grand Ducal Family are not present, it is probably a precautionary decision because of the pandemic.

Nonsens. Queen Elizabeth II herself gave the example: she was the only royal attending the Trooping The Colour at the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle. Not one other member of the royal family joined her.


The same situation in Luxembourg: no Consort, no Heir, no other royal.

IN the UK the quarantine measures are much stricter then in Luxembourg. And the consort of Queen Elizabeth II. had retired and doesn't attend official Evetny anymore which is not the case for GD Maria Teresa.

I'm glad that National Day was marked by the Grand Duke given the ongoing restrictions.

Or the government deciding that the Grand Duchess has no official role in this National Day event and not inviting her.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public celebration of the birthday of HRH the Grand Duke did not take place. However, an official ceremony was held at the national monument of Luxembourg Solidarity "Kanounenhiwwel". It brought together the Head of State, members of the government, deputies, representatives of the alderman college of the City of Luxembourg, the Council of State, the judiciary as well as the dean of the diplomatic corps accredited to the head of Luxembourg State, the Chief of Staff of the Luxembourg Army and the Director General of the Grand Ducal Police.

I'm glad National Day was celebrated in a scaled down ceremony and not completely cancelled.

I sincerely hope the absence of the Grand Duchess is due to COVID-19 safety measures rather than "no official role." That sets a bad precedent for future spouses and maybe even the spouse of the heir/heiress. If the sovereign's spouse is not necessary, why include the heir/heiress' spouse?

Constitutionally it is correct. It is the head of state attending a ceremony of state. No one hyperventilates when President Macron, President Putin or President Trump attends a ceremony without their partner.

None of the other officials attending the Commemoration brought their partner either.
