HGD Guillaume at The Bridge Forum Dialogue

Yesterday, a conference focusing on the question "A world without oil?" took place in Kirchberg, a quarter in the city of Luxembourg that is home to many different institutions of the European Union, and the Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume was one of the attendees.

Somehow resembling Félix a lot more than usual, Guillaume participated in the conference organised by The Bridge Forum Dialogue, an organisation that aims to link the Luxembourg-based parts of the European Union and Luxembourgs financial, legal and economic life.

Interestingly and probably not entirely coincidental, the logo of The Bridge Forum Dialogue resembles a bridge named after Guillaume's great grandmother Grand Duchess Charlotte a lot. The Grand Duchess Charlotte Bridge, nicknamed Rout Bréck (Red Bridge) because of its colour, links Kirchberg with downtown Luxembourg. Therefore, it symbolises the purpose of the Forum Dialogue.
