A Lovely Summer Surprise *

Traditionally, the Grand Ducal summer (and holiday) time does not only bring us less public appearances - boo! - but also rare appearances - yeah! -  in the form of Prince Louis and Princess Tessy being on official duty that isn't a family duty. The lovely couple visited the premises of the project "Streetwork" by Caritas Luxembourg.

The project try to provide activities and a port of call in cases of questions and problems for teenagers and young adults between the ages of 16 and 26 from difficult backgrounds. Prince Louis and Princess Tessy specifically viewed a newly opened gym that has been installed to give young people a way to rebuild confidence while learning that strength does not have to go hand in hand with violence.

On a sidenote, this was not only a nice summer surprise but also a surprise in general as this visit was the first big official engagement that Louis and Tessy had together. We have seen them attending events together with other family members in the past but to the best of our combined recollections this is the first time that they ventured out of their home together all on their own. Me likey, where can I sign a petition to make this happen more often?!

A bunch of pictures are located at Wort in French, Wort in English and on the website of the cour, while RTL has a video.
