Summer Break Is Over

Seems like the Grand Ducal family is planning to end their summer vacation and take on their duties again:

On September 9th, Grand Duke Henri along with London-based Prince Louis and Princess Tessy will attend the closing ceremony of the Paralympic Games in the British capital. Two days later the Grand Duke will revive a yearly tradition by receiving Luxembourg's best students at the palais. On the same day, he will attend an event to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Josy Barthel's gold medal run at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. His win in the 1500m race is to this date the only official Olympic gold medal for Luxemborg. (Another one was won by Michel Théato in the 1900 marathon race though it is officially credited to the French at it only became known a few years ago that Théato was in fact a Luxembourger.)
