Election Day **

Photos: Anouk Antony / Luxemburger Wort /
Today it is general election day and the Grand Ducal Family was out in quite a force to cast their vote -- Yes, they do. Grand Duke Jean, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie, Prince Félix sans his German wife Princess Claire, Prince Louis and Princess Tessy, Princess Alexandra as well as Prince Sébastien were at the Ratskeller of the Cercle Cité at Place d'Armes in Luxembourg City this morning to meet their civic duties.

More pictures of the Grand Ducal voters are located on Manuel Dias' website as well as at Tageblatt, Revue, Wort in German, Wort in French and Wort in English. RTL has a little sound bite from the Grand Ducal Family at the polling station - scroll down to Groussherzoglech Famill a Xavier Bettel ware wielen: N. Graf - including a few words by the Hereditary Grand Duke who said, "It's a big day for the country and we will be keenly awaiting the results tonight. It will be a new phase."

I'm fairly certain that we will also get to see videos of the Family voting later today, so make sure to check back. And indeed the first one is now available at Wort, just skip ahead to 1:35 if you do not wish to view the interview with prime minister Jean-Claude Juncker. Another one can be found at RTL, once again just skip ahead to 5:15.
