Games of the Small States of Europe - Day Four *

Day four of the Games of the Small States of Europe and we're still going strong. Sadly, tomorrow will be the last day of competition that will be rounded off by a closing ceremony at the Abbaye de Neumünster which will be attended by the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess as well as the Hereditary Grand Duke and the Hereditary Grand Duchess.

While Grand Duke Henri was on his own, family-wise that is, to watch the beach volleyball earlier today, the family joined forces to support the Luxembourgish swimmers on the last day of their competition at the Centre national sportif et culturel, better known as the Coque. In addition, they also watched volleyball and basketball in various compositions.

Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Grand Duke Jean, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie as well as Princess Margaretha, showing us that her visit to Brussels was of very short nature, were present at the swimming venue to cheer on the Luxembourgish swimmers, or maybe also the ones from Liechtenstein in the case of Princess Margaretha.

The Grand Ducal Couple and Princess Margaretha were joined by Princess Marie-Astrid and her son Archduke Imre and wife Archduchess Kathleen, who have recently moved to Luxembourg from Brussels, to watch the women's volleyball final between Luxembourg and Cyprus, won by the latter ones.

At least the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess ventured over to another part of the Coque to watch tonight's basketball game between Luxembourg and San Marino which was won by the men from the Grand Duchy with 91:37.
