Was the late Philippe de Lannoy a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece?

No, sixteen De Lannoys have been Knight in the Order of the Golden Fleece, but not the late Philippe de Lannoy. The last De Lannoy to have been ennobled into this Order was in 1744, when the Southern Netherlands were under Habsburg rule

Thanks!

I noticed that Henri and Gabriella attended the funeral of their great aunt together. Probably the first pictures of the engaged couple in 15 months?

That would be the Austrian (Habsburg) Golden Fleece of course, which some people see as the only legitimate successor to the medieval Burgundian order of the Golden Fleece.

Yes the Austrian Catholic Order. The King of the Belgians had the Austrian Order.
When King Juan Carlos came on Official Visit to Belgium he gave King Albert II the Spanish Order of the Golden Fleece. He is the only one who has the 2 Orders .

Interesting to see that Gabriella Habsburg-Lothringen is still together with the father of her child, Henri Bourbon.

Had forgotten that the Austrian Order can only be bestowed on Roman Catholics unlike the Spanish one.

And, if I am not mistaken, it is only bestowed on males also.

The Spanish order was once also strictly for Catholics. I believe the Duke of Wellington was the first Protestant to receive the Spanish Golden Fleece.

Was King Philippe given the austrian Golden Fleece since his accession?

Wasn't he bestowed the Order back in 2008?

Interesting that the Graf Czernin von und zu Chudentiz has been ennobled into the Order of the Golden Fleece. It seems that on his death bed Kaiser Karl demanded his former Minister of Foreign Affairs to be stripped of the Golden Fleece because of erratic and traitorous behaviour in the Sixtus Affair.

Interesting that this blame of treason did not block the Count Czernin von und zu Chudenitz to receive another Golden Fleece.

I saw a picture in Paris Match: Princess Yolande , Mrs Townsend presented her husband to Prince laurent. Hugo Townsend remain sitting and looked very frail.

An Ard Ri 03-06-2019 02:54 PM

I only spotted the Grand Duke in the photos, who else was there from the Grand Ducal Family at the Memorial Mass?

Grand Duke Jean as well as Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Theresa were present IIRC; as were Princess Margaretha but they were the only ones I could find. The PM of Luxembourg was also there.

maria-olivia 03-06-2019 05:26 PM

I did not see the Grand Duchess and no one of her Children.
The Prince and the Princess de Ligne , Prince lamoral de Ligne and Princess Sophie de Ligne. Next to Prince Guillaume and Princess Sybilla , Mrs de Podesta , born Princess of Hohenberg.

Yes indeed, her husband was there too.
