      1. This isn't a list of everybody. We try to keep it focused on the important, relevant, and interesting royals.
        If we tried to add everyone:

        For Luxembourg: After we added Felix & Claire and their kids, we really ought to all the Grand Duke and Duchess's other kids and grand kids.....And what about the Grand Duke's brothers and sisters, and their spouses, and kids and grand kids...... (We would have to be up to at least 40 people by then).... And then there is Grand Duke Jeans siblings, their spouses and kids and grandkids, etc. The line of succession goes on forever.

        For each Royal Family we had to figure out where to stop. Which is a tough task and we looked at each royal family individually. With Luxembourg, we decided to only include Jean, Henri, Maria Teresa, Guillaume, and Stephanie.

      1. You are thinking about Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein (Prince Hans-Adam's Younger brother). He is turning 70 on October 24th. I have tried to keep this list to 110 royals, so we aren't including a lot of the extended royal family like Prince Hans-Adam's younger brother.

        The Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein we have included on this list is Hereditary Prince Alois & Hereditary Princess Marie's youngest son.

      1. We've bolded some of the more important birthdays that people may want to make special note of: everything ending in a 5 or 0, plus 1-5 & 100+, and any other birthday that is significant to that country like 18.

    6. Tomorrow is the 98th Birthday of HRH The DOE Prince Philip of Britain.I like to wish him the happiest Birthday ever. It is with great pleasure seeing him on occasions of his choosing,like the Wedding of Lady Gabriela Windsor and Mr. Tom Kingston. There we seen him very happy. But I think the light of his life is the Queen just like it should be.

    8. The husbands of Pss Beatrice of York Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and her sister Pss Eugenie if York Mr Jack Brooksbank are not included in the birthdays in your list. I know this two men are fairly new members of the British RF. I think the complete list of everyone would take too much time and space. So thank you for all you did write about.
