Bad news is, the scarf addiction of the ladies of the Grand Ducal Family is alive and well; good news is, the Grand Duchess looked lovely nonetheless when she attended the opening of the nineth edition of the Relais pour la vie organised by the Fondation Cancer earlier tonight. Since 2006, the "relay for life" has been taking place at d'Coque each year in an effort to raise money for the foundation which helps cancer patients in the Grand Duchy. Until tomorrow evening, over 9,000 runners in 345 teams will run in 24-hour and 12-hour relays to help raise money. During a speech Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa stressed how important the help of their family, friends and general society is for patients suffering from cancer.

  1. What is the title of the documentary? It sounds fascinating.

  2. In German it is called "Die Gräfin und die Russische Revolution" and in French "La Comtesse et la Révolution russe". It was produced by BR, ORF and ARTE and the director was Monika Czernin of the Bohemian Czernin von und zu Chudenitz noble family.
