Blast from the past
I know I have said many times that I love all things related to Luxembourg and it's Grand Ducal Family. I am aware that many of the people who visit my blog are really only interested in Guillaume and Félix and their day to day activities. However, from time to time I find pictures or an article that are interesting and keeps the blog more entertaining that just posting current events, IMHO.
As usual, I welcome input, information and ideas from readers.
I have been a fan of the website of Brigitte Gastel Lloyd since the 1990s. I'm not really as old as that makes me seem, btw. For a long time it seems that her site was down. Now it appears to be back up. It has numerous old photographs of Luxembourg (and other royals). If you click on the name it will open other galleries. I particularly enjoy looking at the older pictures to see the fantastic jewels which may lay hidden away in vaults in Luxembourg. This is the link for the Luxembourg gallery which in turn opens into additional galleries. Some pictures you will have saw and some will be new to you. This is the link to the main royal/aristo page which has a treasure trove of information and photographs. I hope you find it as enjoyable as I have for the past decade or so.
The photo above didn't come from Brigitte's page. I have this picture in my own collection and decided it would make an appropriate photo for this entry on older photographs. I just love baby Guillaume.
