On the 17th, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were in Madrid to attend the awarding of the 23rd Prix Marquis de Villalobar. This award, which was created in 1987, recognizes individuals or companies that foster positive connections between Spain and other European nations (specifically Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands in this case). The Prix Marquis de Villalobar for this year was presented by the Belgo-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Spain to Luxair; Adrian Ney, the Director General of Luxair, was on hand to receive the award at the gala event.

The award was developed by Carlos Saavedra y Ozores, the Marquis de Villalobar, as a way of recognizing social, cultural, and economic ties between nations and focused toward a more united Europe.
