Count Philippe de Lannoy, father of Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie of Luxembourg, has passed away on Thursday, January 10, at the age of 96, the cour grand-ducale has announced. Our deepest condolences go out to the Hereditary Grand Duchess, her siblings and family.

The Count of Lannoy was born on August 14, 1922, as the first son of Count Paul de Lannoy and his wife née Princess Béatrice de Ligne. In 1965, he married Alix della Faille de Leverghem and the couple had eight children with Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie being the youngest. Countess Alix de Lannoy passed away in 2012 shortly before the wedding of her youngest daughter. The Count of Lannoy is survived by his children, children-in-law and several grandchildren. He is succeeded as the head of the House of Lannoy by his oldest son, Count Jehan.
