Grand Ducal Couple Welcome French Presidential Couple

On the evening of the 12th, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa welcomed French President Emmanuel and his wife Brigitte for dinner at their vacation property near Fort de Brégançon. This follows a tradition dating from 1945, in which the French head of state dines with neighbors (so to speak) -- heads of state from nearby nations and other dignitaries -- while staying at Fort de Brégançon.

Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa were first received by the French Presidential couple, after which they made their way to Tour Sarrazine. The two couples apparently traveled by electric vehicles, a reflection of the Grand Duke's focus on the environment.

Update: Pictures are now available on the website of the cour.
