The British Diamond Jubilee

In case you are a regular follower of royalty or you just simply haven't been living under a rock for the last couple of months, you know that this year is the Diamond Jubilee Year for Britain's Queen Elizabeth II. For this weekend, her counterparts from abroad have been invited to celebrate her 60 years on the throne with her.

In a few moments, the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess are attending a luncheon at Windsor Castle hosted by her majesty herself. The grand ducal couple is also among the guests for tonight's gala dinner at Buckingham Palace hosted by the Prince of Wales.

Tomorrow, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess will attend a military parade for Queen Elizabeth II. Afterwards a private luncheon will be hosted by Lady Elizabeth Shakerley. For the luncheon the grand ducal couple will be accompanied by London-based Prince Louis and Princess Tessy.

As most of the events are hosted privately, we'll have to see what kind of media coverage we will get. Keep your fingers crossed that there is lots of it and that the British photographers actually know the grand ducal family.
