Grand Ducal Family at the Olympic Games

Tomorrow the 2012 Summer Olympics will kick off with a grand opening ceremony in London and the Grand Duke, the Grand Duchess and other members of the grand ducal family will be on hand for the event to cheer on Luxembourgish athletes headed by the flag bearer judoka Marie Muller. Sadly, the cour hasn't specified who the "other members" are but here is hoping for a big turn-out just like at the Athens Olympics eight years ago when all the kids were around, four years ago in Beijing Princess Alexandra and Prince Sebastien accompanied their parents.

Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa will also take part in a reception at Buckingham Palace tomorrow prior to the opening ceremony. Family members will also most probably be present for events during the Olympics though nobody should hold their breathes for a Luxembourgish medal.
