The Grand Duke and His Aunt at the Movies

Yesterday evening, Grand Duke Henri attended the opening night of the Brazil Film Festival in Luxembourg to watch two different films from the South American country. He was joined by his maternal aunt Princess Marie-Esméralda of Belgium, half-sister of the late Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte, and her husband Salvador Moncada.

Before actually watching the films, the Grand Duke and his relatives happily chatted to the crowds at a cocktail reception at the cinema Utopolis in Kirchberg.

Princess Marie-Esméralda was present because her foundation financed one of the screened films. The documentary "La Visite du Roi" portrays the visits of King Leopold III's to the Xingu territory in central Brazil. Afterwards another film titled "Xingu", which shows the fight of the Villas Bôas brothers to make the area a national park.

Pictures can be found on the website of Wort.
