Hi There, Cousins (and All Others Missed Thus Far)!

Photos: Roland Miny (obviously)

You know, curious me couldn't help but wade through some additional photogalleries of the First Communion of Prince Gabriel and look who I found, Prince Josef and Archduke Christoph. The sons of Princess Margaretha and Archduchess Marie-Astrid, respectively. As a bonus there is Hereditary Prince Carl-Philipp of Croÿ, who, being a descendant of Grand Duke Adolph through his grand-daughter Princess Antonia, is actually considered to be a member of the Grand Ducal Line of Luxembourg.

  1. Hi Sydney, you forgot to include Princess Alexandra and Prince Sebastien on your list of attendies.

  2. You are missing Alexandra and Sebastian. Catalina Esteve is MTs sister? not her niece?

  3. Yes, thanks!

    Catalina is Maria-Teresa's sister. Her nieces, Catalina's daughters, are called Katarina, Victoria and Natalia.

  4. Thanks, I guess it was a bit late last night (or rather very early this morning :D)
