Luxembourgish Attendance at Queen Fabiola's Funeral

The cour grand-ducale has announced that Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Grand Duke Jean, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie, as well as other members of the Grand Ducal Family will attend the funeral of Queen Fabiola of Belgium, who died last Friday and will be laid to rest on Friday this week. The funeral service at the Cathédrale des Saints Michel et Gudule will be followed by a religious mass at the Église Notre-Dame de Laeken.

Considering the close bonds between the Grand Ducal Family and the deceased - Queen Fabiola was the sister-in-law of the late Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte - I'm sure the attendance of "other members of the Grand Ducal Family" will be numerous. Until the funeral on Friday, the schedule of the Grand Ducal Family will largely go ahead as planned: On Wednesday the Hereditary Grand Duke and the Hereditary Grand Duchess will visit both the European Court of Justice as well as the Centre Hospitalier du Luxembourg.
