Members of the Grand Ducal Family Attend Pontificial Mass

It's that time of the year again, the last day of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg. To kick off the closing day of Luxembourg's most important religious celebration, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Prince Félix and Princess Claire, as well as Prince Louis and Princess Tessy attended a pontificial mass at the Cathédral Notre-Dame this morning. (Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie are in Austria today to visit the site of the Mauthausen concentration camp; Grand Duke Henri and Prince Sébastien are probably still in the U.S.)

This afternoon will bring out our five churchgoers again plus Prince Gabriel and Prince Noah for the closing procession of the Octave. Here's also hoping that we will get to see Princess Amalia, who'll turn 1 soon already, during the balcony appearance traditionally made after the closing procession. To view a livestream of the procession, have a look at RTL.

  1. I was just thinking about Princess Amalia recently, and that we really need to see some new pictures of her!
