It's audience day in the Grand Duchy! This morning, Grand Duke Henri received the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz - picture here - as well as Japan's outgoing ambassador Wataru Nishigahiro - no pictures available - at he palais. In the afternoon, the Grand Duke was joined by Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, one shiny jacket and a scarf possible stolen from the Hereditary Grand Duchess to welcome Peter Maurer, president of the International Red Cross, in the Grand Duchy. The Luxembourg branch of the Red Cross celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and another event attended by the Grand Ducal couple to mark the occasion started a few minutes ago, but more on that later on cause it would totally destroy my perfectly alliterated headline.
