Re: The principalities
Weren't they all at Elizabeth's 60th Jubilee? (Or at the one where she wore Queen Mary's fabulous diamond stomacher.)
Yes the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess will go. I also think the funeral of King Baudouin in 1993 was the last time all 10 european monarchs attended the same Event.
So Luxembourg will be represented, too? I'm assuming the sovereign couple, if so ... I believe the last time all 10 reigning monarchs were present in one place was 1993, at the funeral of King Baudouin of the Belgians.
Yes the will. Prince Albert and Princess Charlene will attend as will Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie. Pity that Prince Hans Adam isn't going himslef as then it would have been one of the rare occasion with all reigning European Monarchs beeing present.
Does anybody know if Liechtenstein or Monaco will be sending representatives to the funeral? It seems that thus far, the only confirmed attendance of foreign reigning monarchies are the other kingdoms. What about the grand duchy of Luxembourg? Or non-reigning houses?
