There is a fantastic thread on the Luxembourg princesses by Miss Waynfleet already, but I think a more general thread would be nice too.
I start with a picture of the wee Grand Duke Jean.

Yes, as adorable as he could get. And his siblings were cuties too. A handsome family.


I always wonder how these little ones survived their childhood though.  Sweating All these short trousers and bare legs cause me goosebumps just by looking at them.

Such an attractive family...until the current generation

Josephine Charlotte was so beautiful, and so were her children.

These are lovely photos. Thankyou Babalux.

The short shorts were very common for children in the sixties.
The Luxembourg children were certainly not suffering childhood obesity like today's youngsters.
They are very sweet looking children. All are handsome.

My husband has photos of his family and his school friends looking as bare legged.  Yikes
(His older brother was born in the same year and month as Henri.)
I think kids clothing was less fashionable and more practical back then - made as play wear.
Maybe they played outdoors, making cubbies and climbing trees constantly and scuffing the knees out of any long pants should they have worn them.

I donīt mind these shorts in general, they look cute and all. But these days kids are bundled up much more (unless they are Suri Cruise of course) and looking back at old pictures with bare legged kids in autumn and winter and I always wonder how cold it must have been. But then Iīm an infamous frost boil breeder, so maybe thatīs just this mollycuddled me.

The shorts and dresses are waaaaay too short.  I know that was the style back then, but still.   Thumb down

I used to hate that dress that Tessy is wearing, but for some reason, I kind of like it now.  It would have looked a million times better if she'd worn a hat that matched the cardigan.  The gloves are terrible
