On Thursday, a New Year's reception for the diplomatic corps was held in Liechtenstein. Prince Hans-Adam, Princess Marie, Hereditary Prince Alois, and Hereditary Princess Sophie welcomed accredited diplomatic representatives to Schloss Vaduz for this year's annual event. Also present for some of the events were Prince Nikolaus, Prince Stefan and Princess Maria Pia.
As noted last year, the reception is now organized as two events: a morning reception and an afternoon reception. The guest list is similarly divided, to ensure that everyone can fit comfortably in the space and spend time visiting with the members of the Princely family who are there to greet them.
