In a bit of a nice surprise, the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess hosted an official dinner for French President François Hollande at the palais this evening to round off his official visit. They were also joined for the event by Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie fresh off their economic mission to the Middle East.
Alas, as this wasn't a full-blown state visit - you know, the three-day kind of thing - there were no tiaras. Here's hoping for the real deal to come up soon though in another alas - the Grand Duchess apparently not joining her husband's official visit to Cabo Verde next week - I guess we will need to wait for a tiara-filled state occasion. (There's always national day coming up in June as well as possibly the wedding of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden but both of those just seem so far away for the tiara-lovers among us.)
