One of the biggest days in Luxembourg’s not hugely-illustrious history has finally arrived.

Earlier today the wedding of Prince Guillaume, the heir to the throne – the grand duke-to-be – and Belgian Countess Stephanie de Lannoy took place at the Cathedral of our Lady of Luxembourg.

A huge guest list of foreign royal families and dignitaries filled the church to watch the ceremony in the tiny (but very wealthy) country.

 

Accompanied by her father, Count Phillipe de Lannoy, the 28-year-old bride, wore an Elie Saab dress, with a four-metre (13 feet) train as walked down the aisle.

The dress featured three-quarter length sleeves and a silk tulle veil, and was also adorned with a silver floral motif.

The ceremony, which was conducted in a mixture of French and English, and featured a minute’s silence for Stephanie’s late mother Countess Alix de Lannoy, who died in August this year.

The two-day wedding celebrations cost an estimated 500,000 euros (paid by the Luxembourg taxpayer), and included free concerts, street shows and a giant fireworks display.

The guest list for the religious ceremony included kings, queens, princes and princesses from European countries including, among others, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Lichtenstein, Denmark, the Netherlands, Romania and Britain, which sent Prince Edward, Queen Elizabeth’s youngest child, and his wife, Sophie.

Prince Guillaume, 30, and Stephanie de Lannoy, 28, are hugely popular in their country and were seen recently in London, enjoying the 2012 Olympics.

[Guillaume is a lieutenant colonel in the Luxembourg army (a force of 900 soldiers), and has been engaged in humanitarian work in other countries, including Nepal.

His bride plays piano and violin, swims, skis, and says she reads three books at a time.

In the language department, she already speaks French and German – two of Luxembourg’s three official languages – and, perhaps more importantly, is studying the third, which is called Luxembourgish.

She plans to renounce her Belgian citizenship in order to become, eventually, Luxembourg’s grand duchess.

 

Luxembourg is a linguistically complicated country, a reflection of its complicated past. It began as a Roman fortress. It has, at one time or another, fallen under the control of Spain, France and Austria.

In 1839, it gained its independence from the Netherlands, but lost more than half its territory to Belgium, which now has a province of the same name.

In the 20th century, Germany swept through Luxembourg twice despite its protestations of neutrality.

Luxembourg, an important financial centre and home to the world’s largest steel manufacturer, continues to prosper despite Europe’s economic trouble.

The country has the second-highest gross domestic product per capita in the world, more than £50,000 ($80,000) – though its population of about 510,000 people lost the Number one spot to Qatar. The capital city has 80,000 inhabitants and 120,000 jobs.

For that reason, more than 43 per cent of the people in Luxembourg are foreign nationals, compared to a European Union average of 6.4 per cent.

According to New York Post,   A St. James’ Palace spokesman has confirmed that Prince Harry has moved in with brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton, in  Kensington Palace.

Prince Harry has been really looking forward to getting his own place after living with his father for so long. Understandably he wants to spread his wings,” a source tells the Daily Mail of the red-headed Prince, who recently embarked on a tour of South America. Prince Harry adores his brother and says Catherine is the sister he never had.”
While the Duke and Duchess occupy the lavish Nottingham Cottage at the palace, Prince Harry has taken the much less luxe apartment.

The paper reports that Prince Harry made the “secret” move into his one-bedroom apartment last week. At the end of the year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will move into Princess Margaret’s old apartment at the palace, at which point Prince Harry will take their Nottingham Cottage.

According to the Daily Mail’s source, Prince Harry made the decision to move out of his old room at Clarence House, where he lived with father Prince Charles, while abroad.

Prince Harry and Prince William were so enthusiastic about the idea of living together that when it emerged that this apartment was free, Harry moved his gear in as soon as he could after returning from Brazil,” the source says. “It’s a small, one-bedroomed apartment and he’s is very happy with the arrangement.”

PRINCE JOHAN FRISCO

According to People, Dutch Prince Johan Friso’s battle to regain consciousness after being buried alive in an avalanche last week may be hopeless, says his doctor.
“It is clear that the oxygen starvation has caused massive brain damage to the patient,” said Dr. Wolfgang Koller, head of trauma at Austria’s Innsbruck hospital where the second of Dutch Queen Beatrix’s three sons is being treated, reports Britain’s Independent.
“At the moment, it cannot be predicted if he will ever regain consciousness.”

The prince, 41, was on a skiing vacation in the Austrian resort of Lech and lay under a mound of snow for at least 15 minutes before his rescue and hospitalization.
According to reports, the prince’s mother and his wife, Mabel, have been to visit him, as have his brothers, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Prince Constantijn.

Prince Frisco and his wife Mabel are parents to two daughters, Countess Luana, 6½, and Countess Zaria, 5½.
The prince is expected to receive further treatment at a private clinic, where he will eventually be moved
