a more logical place would have been to put Gui and Linus somewhere next to Henri or MT but they managed to keep MT and Linus as far apart as possible in the pics  Whistle. They even managed to put the Greeks closer to Jean than the heir and his wife

RTL.lu has the guest list for tonight. Too bad that Albert and Paola don't attend, they should have attended instead of Mathilde and Phillipe, they are his generation and not M+P. And it can't be because they are now the reigning couple since Sofia from Spain is also attending
http://www.rtl.lu/lifestyle/people/752489.html
So we will have all his kids plus spuses, all grandchildren, the elder great grandchildren, Sofia from Spain, the Greeks, queen Beatrix (I still refuse to call her princess), some middle east royals and lots of other people who think they are important plus lots of ordinary Lux people who were also invited
It is too bad that King Albert of Belgium can't attend his brother-in-law's birthday celebration but I am not surprised given his health.  Grand Duke Jean's sister's aren't attending the concert either, but have one of their children attending in their place.  So nephew and nieces as follows:

King Philippe attends for his parents King Albert, age 81 and Queen Paola, age 78.
Princess Anne of Ligne attends for her mother, Jean's sister, Princess Alix of Luxembourg, age 86.
Comtesse Antonia de Holstein-Ledreborg attends for her mother, Jean's sister, Princess Marie-Gabriele of Luxembourg, age 90

Archduchess Anna-Gabriella is the wife of the late Rudolf of Austria.  He and his siblings were first cousins of Grand Duke Jean through his father, Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma whose sister was Zita of Austria.

The "middle eastern royals"  are Prince Hassan de Jordan and his wife, brother of the late King Hussein I of Jordan and uncle of the current king.  They are good friends of the Luxembourg family and vacation together in France.

I think it is interesting that the "Greek" contingency is there.  Queen Sophia is very generous in attending events for various royals.  Her sister, Irene, usually tags along, as does her best friend and cousin, Princess Tatinana, shown of the list as Madame John H. Fruchaud.  And, of course, her brother, King Constantin and his wife are there as well.  Perhaps Ann-Marie represents Scandinavia.

Have to laugh that Stephanie is shoved on the end, yeah its the front row but she's like the only one there. In a perfect place to crop her out the picture altogether

Blink and you'd miss her.  It took me a few seconds before I finally saw her.  She's got zero charisma.

the journal from today is online. There is a stupid ad at the beginning and the part with the GD family and the first guests arriving tonight starts at 12.35. Is that Katie when they show the guests arriving (at about 13:05)?

The Greeks are there because AM is related to the Luxes via her mother (her mother was a sister or cousin of GD JC) and because the Greeks always attend anything where they can show that they are still "royal"

Good point, Trier!   Star

Also, Jean ruled during the same time as Constantine's (very brief) rule.  They were peers.  It makes perfect sense to me that they'd be invited.

First pics, Stephanie never disappoints! Lovely to see such as big gathering for Jean!

Did she dress for a 1970s disco?  Blink

She was told that she has to stand far away from Jean, Henri and MT and is not allowed to be at the centre of the pics, that's why she is wearing this strange thing, she wanted to get attention. Too bad that the cute boys (Noah and Gabriel) stole the show and that everybody else has far more charisma than her

Or sorority rush in 1993.  I had those exact same pants in the 90s.  I always wondered where they ended up.   Tongue 

They look terrible on her.

And Claire doesn't look better, perhaps it was a bad taste party  Thinking? http://2.t.cdn.belga.be/b...v=568e53df&m=mfbbjpej

I rarely ever like what she wears.  I'm not a fan of her style.  I can't figure out what it is that bugs me about the way she dresses, but this outfit is no exception.  However, the thing she wore to Christoph and Adelaide's wedding tops the list of ugliest things I've seen her wear.

Some German mags are calling Claire a fashion icon  Whistle, so I'm glad that I don't fall into this category, I would refuse to leave the house in most of the things she is wearing
