Closing of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg: May 17, 2009
Will the Grand Ducal family attend the Closing of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg this year. I believe it is today.

Yes, it is today. However, the actual services begin at 6pm (18:00) Luxembourg time according to the signs posted in front of the cathedral. It is not yet even 12:30 in Luxembourg. No sign of the GD family yet. The procession that will proceed the services also hasn't started.

The first gallery of photos has been posted on RTL. It does not YET include any photos of the GD family, as they don't seem to have made an appearance thus far. The gallery will be updated later in the day.

It was lovely to see Gabriel and Noah on the balcony but a shame the pictures were from far away. The Grand Duke and Duchess seem like doting grandparents:flowers:

Hopefully, as the week goes on more pictures will emerge. Tom Wagner finally loaded pics of the Octave preparations from earlier so perhaps he will load pics from the actual Octave Procession. There is a small piece on with a nice picture, but otherwise the RTL gallery is it. The GD website usually updates in the afternoon so hopefully they'll also put up a pic or two.

I missed seeing Guillaume there. He must have something important going on for him to miss the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg.

She wore this outfit minus the hat at the wedding of Prince Louis and Tessy.

And I think you might be correct too.

Thank you ! It is obvious Princess Alexandra and Tessy are good friends !

kyansaunt20 05-18-2009 10:26 AM

I LOVE THE PICTURES!!!! It is always wonderful to see this family

crm2317 05-18-2009 02:33 PM

Thanks you for posting the pictures the family looks to be very close. I think my favourite picture was of Sebastien holding an umbrella to keep himself and Tessy dry while Louis had his own umbrella!

It's good to see the whole (almost, except for Guillaume) family out and about again! And we should see them again in June for the National day celebrations.

sugarbaby318 05-18-2009 03:46 PM

Thanks for all the pictures and info everyone! Gabriel and Noah are SO big now! Everyone looks wonderful.

ChantalC 05-19-2009 11:53 AM

Thank you for all the pictures! It's great to see the Luxembourg royal family together, especially Gabriel and Noah joining them on the balcony for the first time. The little boys are so big and really cute!:flowers:
