Welcome to our very first weekly roundup of the latest news and events of the Luxembourg and Liechtenstein families. Read here what it is all about - and then, without much further ado, let's delve deep into a busy week.

Our first bit of news actually dates back to Friday of last week, which would have been September 21, but as we haven't covered yet, here we go: Hereditary Prince Alois received a UNICEF delegation and representatives of the municipality of Ruggell as the latter was honoured as a child friendly place by UNICEF. More information here.
