Requiem for Princess Elisabeth

Yesterday, a requiem for Princess Elisabeth, Duchess of Hohenburg was held at the Église Saint-Michel in Luxembourg City.

Princess Elisabeth was the sister of Grand Duke Jean and died at Château de Fischbach on November 22nd. She was laid to rest on December 3rd at the Castle of Artstetten in Austria, the home of her family.

The requiem mass was attended by Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla. In case you are not familiar with the extended grand ducal family, the lady between the Grand Duchess and the Hereditary Grand Duke is Princess Alix of Luxembourg, Dowager Princess of Ligne, a sister of Princess Elisabeth and Grand Duke Jean who apparently wasn't there, which stands in difference to what was announced by the cour earlier on.

More pictures can be found on the website of Tom Wagner, of the cour and at Tageblatt. RTL had a short report during yesterday's news program (starting at 21:45).
