New York, New York *

Originally scheduled for 30 October 2012 and supposed to be attended by Prince Félix as a stand-in for his honeymooning older brother, the Luxembourg-American Business Award had to be cancelled last year due to Hurricane Sandy hitting New York City on precisely that day. A few months later, the event finally took place at the University Club in New York last night.

This time around, the Hereditary Grand Duke himself as well as his lovely wife, the Hereditary Grand Duchess, were on hand to hand out the award to the Airtech Advanced Materials Group during the black tie dinner hosted by the Luxembourg-American Chamber of Commerce. Since 1999, the award is presented every two years to recognise special and longstanding relationships between a North-American corporation and Luxembourg.

On a sidenote, the Hereditary Grand Duchess' gown looks strikingly similiar to one worn by her mother-in-law a few years ago, assuring us that the clothes sharing within the Grand Ducal Family goes on.

Having already made their way over the big pond, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie also used the chance to meet up with representatives of the Luxembourgish expatriate community in the United States on Wednesday night.

Wort in German, Wort in French and Wort in English all have articles about the visit, the LACC a gallery of visuals.
