    1. In the first row there are grand duke Henri and his two sisters (Marie Astrid, Margaretha) and two brothers (Jean, Guillaume) and grand duchess Maria Teresa. In the 2nd row are sisters' husbands and brothers' wives. The grandchildren are behind them and only a few can be seen in the photos.
      It is quite normal that the children of the deceased are nearer and the grandchildren behind their parents.

    2. Of course I was looking at the back rows. But doing so I can only spot Guillaume and Stephany, yes others may not appear on the picture.
