Grand Ducal Family at Torchlight Parade

We got a full house for National Day this year: After the visits to Esch-sur-Alzette and Larochette yesterday afternoon, the Grand Ducal Family rounded off the day by attending the traditional torchlight parade last night - and out in full force they were! Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa brought along not only Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie but also Prince Félix and Princess Claire, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra as well as Prince Sébastien for the event on the eve of the Grand Duke's official birthday.

The torchlight parade features firefighters, scouts and basically everyone who is old enough to hold it carrying (surprise, surprise) torches. In addition there are folklore and musical groups and associations performing. The torchlight procession is part of the street festival taking place in the city on the day prior to the National Day. The pre-celebrations were rounded off by a fireworks display watched by the Grand Ducal Family from the balcony of the Place de la Constitution.
