A Luxembourg and Liechtensteins in Morocco

The 25th Crans Montana Forum took place between March 12 and March 14 in Dakhla, a city in Western Sahara under Moroccan control. Founded in 1986 in Crans Montana, the Swiss organisation's aim is to give a platform for direct contacts between business, government and political leaders of from around the world. 

This year's forum was themed “South-South cooperation and the development of Africa” and counted King Mohammed VI of Morocco among its speakers. Now finally getting to the point why this point made it onto the blog: Prince Jean, who has long been involved with the Crans Montana Forum, also was in Morocco for the occasion. Other regular and not-so-regular Luxarazzi faces involved with the organisation include Hereditary Prince Alois as well as his second cousin once removed Prince Anton of Liechtenstein. According to reports, a Prince Georg of Liechtenstein was also present for this year's event. I'm inclined to believe it was Prince Anton's son as Hereditary Prince Alois' son Georg is probably a bit too young to appreciate such an event.


  1. Guillaume, prince de Luxembourg is a descendant of the 4th generation of a 3rd cousin of Ernest, prince d'Arenberg.

    Indeed, Charles, duc d'Arenberg (1721-1778) ans his wife Louise-Marguerite de La Mark, comtesse de La Marck (1730-1820) are at the same time
