Two Days of Wedding Celebrations

The Cour Grand-Ducale has released some details concerning the upcoming wedding of The Hereditary Grand Duke.


The civil ceremony will take place at 3:30pm on Friday, October 19 at Hôtel de Ville (City Hall). It was previously confirmed that Xavier Bettle, the mayor of Luxembourg City, will officiate the civil union.

The public will have full access to Place Guillaume, in order to view the couple and royal guests.

At 7:30pm a gala will be held at the Grand Ducal Palace.

At some point during the afternoon, the couple will observe tradition and meet with representatives from local youth organisations.


As expected, The Hereditary Grand Duke and Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy will celebrate their religious wedding at the fabulous Cathédral Notre-Dame. The service will begin at 11am. As previously confirmed, Archbishop Jean-Claude Hollerich will preform the religious ceremony.

The public is invited to line the streets near the cathedral in order to view the couple and their guests

The City of Luxembourg has organized some sort of public address that will take place at some point after the wedding.

A sumptuous reception will begin at the Grand Ducal Palace at 1pm.

The Luxembourg press has highlighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to attend the wedding celebrations. While this will draw additional international attention to Luxembourg and the wedding, these guests will completely outshine the bridal couple. I, for one, will not be offended if they are unable to attend.

No further details were provided. Additional details inserted by us here at Luxarazzi.
