Almost a week of no news blogging later, it's time for us to catch up on what the Luxembourg and Liechtenstein families have been up to during the last couple of days.

In music news... The musical school in Schaan, Liechtenstein's biggest municipality, celebrated its 50th anniversary over the weekend. Among the 3000 guests at the event was no other than the Princess Marie herself. A video of the event is located at Volksblatt.

In church and state news... You might remember that Prince Nikolaus recently participated in a discussion forum about the seperation of church and state in Liechtenstein, 1 FL TV now has a lengthy video about the event including the speech of the country's non-resident ambassador to the Holy See.

In audience news... On 2 July, Grand Duke Henri welcomed Oleg Betin, the governor of Tambov Oblast in Russia, at the palais. A picture of the two gentlemen can be found on the website of the cour.

In Olympic news... A day later, Grand Duke Henri and Princess Nora, both members of the International Olympic Committee, assisted at the extraordinary IOC session in Lausanne, Switzerland, which lasted two days. More information on why they met and such is located on the website of the IOC.

In garden party news... On Wedneyday, archbishop Jean-Claude Hollerich invited the homeless to the his home for a garden party including food, music and fun. Besides a bunch of politicians, Prince Louis and Princess Tessy were among the guests and even brought along their sons, Gabriel and Noah - both nice to see them out and about and supporting such a worthy cause. More pictures are available at Wort in German, Wort in French and Wort in English; a video at RTL.

In other news... The Hereditary Grand Duke and the Hereditary Grand Duchess visited Clerveaux today but we're going to have a seperate post for that as soon as more pictures, videos and such roll in.
