(Not Only) Military Parade

Following the Te Deum it was time for yet another parade after last night's with the torchlights. This time around, it was a more official one. After all other dignitaries had arrived on site, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie maneuvered their hats out of the limousine to be greeted by prime minister Jean-Claude Juncker, minister of defense Jean-Marie Halsdorf and a couple of other guys.

A few minutes later, Grand Duke Henri and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume arrived at the Avenue de la Liberté to inspect the military and police forces. Afterwards, a parade of all things military, police, rescue and all kinds of other stuff followed. As you probably guessed already, even though it's called military parade, the hour long parade doesn't only consist of soldiers marching in front of the Grand Ducal Family.
