  1. Sad day for the Family. May Pss. Alix RIP. Nice to see Prince Laurent join the Family. GD Jean gave his sister the last Farewell.

  2. Ligne is one of the oldest Belgian noble families, dating back to the eleventh century (age of the crusades). It is considered 'top-nobility', just below the royal family.

  3. Must have been really hard for Grand Duke Jean to give his last farewell to his little Sister.
    Gosh Laurent of Belgium does not look healthy.
    MARIE
