At about 10am this morning, they were greeted by the president of the parliament Martin Schulz who had invited them. Afterwards they went to the parliament to listen to a speech given by Irish president Michael D. Higgins, who is also currently visiting the town, and to witness a voting session. They rounded off their day by meeting Luxembourgish officials working in Strasbourg and have lunch with the six Luxembourgish members of the parliament.

A video of Stéphanie and Guillaume waiting and being greeted by Mr Schulz, signing the official guest book and chatting in German and French can be found on the website of the European Parliament. Pictures are located at RTL and on the website of the cour.
