His Royal Highness, Grand Duke Jean, former Grand Duke of Luxembourg has died at the age of 98.

 Grand Duke Jean, born in 1921, reigned as Grand Duke of Luxembourg from 1964 until he abdicated in 2000.  He was the son of the late Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg and Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma.  One of his Godparents was Pope Benedict XV.  He married Princess Josephine Charlotte of Belgium in 1953, and they had 5 children, Archduchess Marie-Astrid of Austria (wife of Archduke Carl Christian of Austria), Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, Prince Jean of Luxembourg, Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein (wife of Prince Nikolaous of Liechtenstein), and Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg.  Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte died in 2005 after a long battle with lung cancer.  Grand Duke Jean lost his sister Princess Alix just this past February.

Grand Duke Jean renounced the titles of the House of Bourbon-Parma for himself and his family in 1986 when his eldest son, (the current Grand Duke) Henri married Maria-Theresa Mestre, as the Duke of Parma, Carlos Hugo, had ruled the marriage unequal in 1981, as well as the marriage of Prince Jean to Hélène Suzanna Vestur in 1987 (Prince Jean had renounced his rights to Luxembourg earlier). It is not known if the marriage of Prince Guillaume was seen by Carlos Hugo as equal, but his father's renunciation of their Parmese rights made that moot.

Grand Duke Jean had been suffering a lung infection for some weeks now. His death makes the Duke of Edinburgh the oldest male royal in Europe.

That is sad news for the Spanish royal family. Following on from my previous post, the Prince of Wales and the Prime Minister have been in Oman to pay their respects at the late Sultan's funeral ceremonies and to meet with his successor.

I was actually a Wessex Regionalist Party supporter once upon a time, one of a few hundred. It's sad news.

Her Royal Highness Princess Badia al Hashem has died in London at the age of 100.  Often referred to as Badia of Iraq, but she could also legitimately be referred to as Badia of the Hijaz. She was a senior matriarch of the extended Hashemite Dynasty which claims descent from the Prophet Mohammed.

Princess Badia bint Ali al Hashem was the daughter of Al Sharif Ali Bin Al Hussein (the last king of the Hijaz), and the granddaughter of Sharif Hussain Bin Ali, King of the Arabs and the leader of the Great Arab Revolution.  She was the niece of King Faisal I, the first king of Iraq, first cousin to King Ghazi of Iraq, and was both first cousin once removed to the last King of Iraq Faisal II through his father, but also his aunt via his mother, as Queen Alia of Iraq was her sister.   She is also the niece of King Abdullah I, king and founder of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.  Sharif Ali, a current claimant of the Iraqi throne, is her son.

Sadly there have been several recent royal deaths in recent days.

Also on May 4th, Princess Diane Margherita of Bourbon-Parma died just days before her 88th birthday.  Princess Diane was daughter of Prince Gaetano of Bourbon-Parma and Princess Maragrete von Thurn und Taxis.  The Princess was married twice, first to Prince Franz Joseph of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and later to Hans Joachim Oehmichen.  It was revealed that her elder son Alexander, who was born a Hohenzollern-Sigaringen during her first marriage, was actually the biological son of her second husband who later legaly adopted him. Her first marriage had ended in divorce and subsequent annulment.  She had three children.
