On Wednesday (December 9th), Grand Duke Henri received in audience a delegation from the Comité Alstad, to mark the 125th anniversary of Grand Duke Adoph's swearing-in before the Chambre des Députés. To brush up on the history of this event, see this Luxarazzi 101 link.

As part of the 125th anniversary, the Comité Alstad has commissioned portraits of six Luxembourg heads of state: Grand Duke Adolph, Grand Duke Guillaume, Grand Duchess Marie-Adelaide, Grand Duchess Charlotte, Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duke Henri. These portraits will be sold, with the proceeds going to benefit the Foundation of the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess.

A little more information at the Cour website.
