All Kinds of News *

In always yawn-worthy news of any royal news blog, Hereditary Prince Alois received new four new ambassadors to Liechtenstein; Charalambos-Gerassimos Manessis of Greece, Antonio Gustavo Trombetta of Argentina,  Peter Howard Rider of New Zealand and Franc Miksa of Slovenia presented presented their credentials over the the Principality's acting head of state today. 

Also in not socks knocking off news, Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume attended an annual gala dinner of the Euro-Toques Luxembourg, a union of star chefs trying to preserve the European culinary heritage, last night. A few pictures are available at Wort.

Not really exciting either but worth a mention, on Friday the Fürstengruft, the burial place of the Princely Family, will be open to the general public like every year on All Saints' Day. Between 1pm and 4pm, everyone will be able to view the crypt near the St Florin cathedral in Vaduz that has been the last resting place for about 30 members of the Princely Family since around the end of World War II. On a similar note, Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Archduchess Marie-Astrid and Prince Jean will be attending a mass for the deceased members of the Grand Ducal Family on Saturday which is All Souls' Day.
