On the evening of the 4th, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa were in Paris to recognize the 90th anniversary of the Fondation Biermans-Lapôtre, which houses Belgian and Luxemburgish students who are attending the Cité Internationale Universitaire. The Fondation Biermans-Lapôtre hosts more than 500 students each year and has housed around 25,000 since its inception.

The celebration included a tour of the exhibit "Les anciens ont du talent" ("The Alumni Have Talent"), followed by other events hosted by former residents of the Fondation Biermans-Lapôtre. Also in attendance were Mertens de Wilmars, the Ambassador of Belgium in Paris; Martine Schommer, the Ambassador of Luxembourg in Paris; and Jean-Marc Sauvé the President of the Cité Internationale Universitaire.
