On Thursday, December 4th, members of the Grand Ducal family hosted the annual reception at the Château de Berg for the members of the Luxembourgish army and police after all. (A few small question marks remained as no pictures became available in what seemed an eternity and a half.) Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria-Theresa, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were there to greet those who served in the peacekeeping and humanitarian missions during 2014.

The reception welcomes not only the members of the army and police force but also their spouses, significant others, parents, and children. This event occurs shortly before Christmas every year, as the Grand Ducal family opens the grand dining room and the ceremonial hall to their guests. The Luxembourgish the forces participate in the KFOR (Kosovo Force) and ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) missions. The Luxembourgish army has served with KFOR since 2000 and ISAF since 2003.

  1. I hope to God she is isn't dating or is going to marry this guy, as he's basically a truffle salesman, not that that is any of my business, but I do really hope she marries a nobleman. Then again, I just want to see her marry, been waiting for so long. It's exiting though, I just hope she marries well, and her husband will take good care of her.
