The Grand Duke has received his Van Thuan Award. It was given yesterday evening at Palazzo Colonna. It was stated that the Grand Duke lives completely and firmly within Catholic principles especially those of the protection of life and freedom of religion.
I'm still waiting on the usual news/picture sources to update....when they update I'll bring you the links for photos and articles. Official website.
It looks as if AFP has photos for the event. Palazzo Colonna is amazingly beautiful. Henri attended with Guillaume. The Grand Duchess is, as we know, still recovering from her recent surgery.
Visit the AFP gallery, select your language and enter Grand Duke Henri into the search bar for pictures.
