The grand ducal account broadcasts the activities of HRH Grand Duke Henri, his wife Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, his son Guillaume and his father Grand Duke Jean. The Twitter account maintains a certain royal aloofness consistently quoting any member of the Grand Ducal Family in the third person with the customary HRH (S.A.R. in French), even when thanking their followers for the birthday wishes. The account never shares any pictures directly on its Twitter feed, but consistently links back to the monarchy’s website. The most popular tweet, retweeted 16 times, is still the announcement of the wedding of HRH Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg to Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy which was held on 20 October 2012. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is only following the Grand Duke’s own foundation @fondgrandducale and hasn’t connected with any other account, not even to the Dutch Royals (@KHtweets) or the @BritishMonarchy.
