Here are some photos from the 18th birthday celebration of HRH Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg. His birthday was celebrated in this castle, sorry forgot the name and where it was:

Party goes enjoying the celebration, sorry I have no idea what is with the wearing all white or the pot. I don't see the Hereditary Grand Duke in the photo either.

Family members (his aunts) arriving.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and her two oldest sons: HRH Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg.

A family photo to mark the occassion:

Pictures of Prince Guillaume at his 18th birthday on 11th December 1999

Here are some pictures of Guillaume reaching the age of majority (18 years) on 11th December 1999. I've read somewhere that Grand Duke Jean was waiting until Guillaume had more than 18 years before he declared his abdication. Prince Guillaume was only 19 years old as he became Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg!;)

gaggleofcrazypeople 10-07-2005 09:10 PM
