The Grand Duke to receive Van Thuan prize today...

The Grand Duke is to receive the Van Thuan prize this evening in Rome at the beautiful Palazzo Colonna.

He will also be received by His Holiness The Pope at his summer residence, Castle Gandolfo, on Thursday.

At the press conference yesterday Cardinal Renato Raffaele Martino (president of the San Matteo Foundation which gives the prize) praised the work of the Grand Duke with the Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa Foundation, his commitment to catholic morals, his beautiful family and mentioned other steller qualities of The Grand Duke.

The Grand Ducal Family usually make a big deal out of their visits to The Pope so we should expect some good pictures of the whole family.

Some articles in English on the Grand Duke receiving the award Catholic CultureMetro Catholic, Vatican Press Service and Loggia. Plus, RTL also has a small mention.
