Princely Family Celebrates National Day

Unfortunately, this year is no different to previous years when it comes to visuals of Liechtenstein's national day. As always, it takes a while until pictures and videos of all the different events of the Staatsfeiertag become available online. It probably also doesn't help too much that national day was on a Saturday this year. As we, however, do not want to keep you waiting too much longer, here's our attempt at a complete list of links thus far. (Though make sure to check back later on as we will update this post during the coming days.)

Vaterland is offering two lovely galleries of visuals from the festivities, one including pictures of the state ceremony and the reception in the rose gardens and another one with pictures from the evening events. During the afternoon and evening, there is a fair held in Vaduz which is usually also attended by members of the Princely Family, such as Prince Hans-Adam and Princess Marie as well as Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie or the younger generation, in various degrees of low-key fashion. Volksblatt has a gallery of the state ceremony, one of the reception and  one gallery of the evening events thus far.

Short news reports about national day can be found at Austrian ORF as well as Swiss TV station SRF and TVO. Videos of Hereditary Prince Alois' speech, the speech of the President of Parliament and interviews of Liechtenstein's leading politicians interspersed with footage of national day are available via Volksblatt. 1 FL TV has a video from the rose garden (inluding interview bits with Prince Michael at 02:58, 10:03 and 15:42), another one from the rose garden (including interview bits with Princess Maria Pia at 0:54, 2:58, 4:38) as well as a video of the Hereditary Prince's speech.
