Guillaume and Stéphanie in Belgium

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were in Belgium a while ago where they attended a charity dinner to benefit the Fondation St. Luc hosted by Count and Countess Nicolas Boël at their home. The money raised by the event will be used to support a new project of the foundation, the Institut Albert II devoted to the treatment of cancer. For the occasion, the Hereditary Grand Duchess repeated a gown both she and her mother-in-law have worn previously.

The Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc (UCL-St-Luc) is a non-profit-making hospital associated with the Université catholique de Louvain, the Hereditary Grand Duchess' alma mater, and situated in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, Brussels. The Fondation St. Luc works to support both the hospital and the students. One of the three honorary presidents of the foundation actually is another familiar face of this blog, Prince Philipp.

While I did not see him or any of his immediate family among the guests, there were another few Luxo-Liechtenstein relatives including his sister-in-law Countess Birky de Villegas de Saint-Pierre Jette, who is one of the foundations's administrators; Count Jehan de Lannoy, brother of Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie, and his wife Countess Beatrice; as well as Prince Michel of Ligne, son of Princess Alix of Luxembourg, and his wife Princess Eleonora.
