During the past couple of days, Hereditary Princess Sophie kept busy making the traditional pre-Christmas visits to the Landesspital hospital in Vaduz as well as different retirement homes throughout Liechtenstein. On Friday last week, she visited the Landesspital followed by visits to the retirement homes St. Mamertus in Triesen and Altersheim Schlossgarten in Balzers on Monday. On Wednesday, she paid a visit to the elderly living in St. Laurentius in Schaan as well as St. Martin in Eschen. During her visits the Hereditary Princess spent time with the patients and residents and presented them with little gifts. This tradition of the ladies of the Princely Family visiting the hospital and retirement homes prior to Christmas has existed for many, many years.
