What an extremely informative article!   :nod: :nod:   
I learned that the Octave honored the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Luxembourg.

The article mentioned that Grand Duke Henri has two Portuguese great-grandmothers but did not name the ladies.   
One great-grandmother is the Infanta Maria Antonia, the mother of Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma.

Luxembourg's Prince Sebastian has  completed his 44 weeks of training at Sandhurst Military Academy. His paternal grandfather, father, uncle and older brothers Guillaume and Felix are also graduates.

The family is present at the Sovereign's Parade today. The Sovereign's Parade At Sandhurst - Zimbio

I knew I had read that there was another graduate Royal passing out at Sandhurst today! Luxembourg also has a tradition going back a couple of generation of attendance at this College (and also service in the British Army.)

Video of the Lux family in attendance with a bit of the parade too. King Abdullah can be heard addressing the graduates.

Yes, Abdullah and his father attended the College and I don't see any harm at all in foreign monarchs who are ex Sandhurst graduates doing the honours every so often.

I believe the ex monarch of Luxembourg who served in the British army (grandfather of Gui, forget his name) in the Irish Guards, gave out the shamrocks one year ages ago on St Pat's Day when no British Royal was available, by request of the Queen. On Royal Dish they seemed to think it was odd that Abdullah was doing this, and 'why didn't a British Royal do it'? (they're always complaining on that forum about the BRF) but I think it's fine. In a way, for those foreign royals who went to Sandhurst it's probably like coming home.

Yes it was Prince Jean who handed out the shamrocks one year. He must be very proud that another grandson has joined the ranks of Sandhurst alumni.

I agree that there is nothing wrong with foreign Sandhurst alumni such as Abdullah, Henri or even Guillaume one day presiding over the Sovereign's Parade. Yes..RD does like to "dish." :wink:
