Weekly Roundup: New Year's Receptions, Concerts, and Interviews

For this week's Roundup, we're featuring the different New Year's events that occurred in recent days.

Hereditary Prince Alois participated in an interview around December 31st, but we're still trying to locate more about it. (We'll update if and when it shows up.)

Additionally, Prince Hans-Adam gave a New Year's interview, in which he talks about Christmas with a large family, as well as how fortunate he feels that his sons have been able to take on professional roles that suit them individually. He also mentions that the 300th anniversary of Liechtenstein will be observed this year, so there are some exciting events to look forward to. Part 1 of the interview here and Part 2 here.

Of course, we also want to post again about Grand Duke Jean's 98th birthday celebration on January 5th, with the wonderful family picture that was released.

Also on January 9th, Grand Duke Henri attended the New Year's Concert performance from the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, under the direction of Sir Lawrence Foster. The Grand Duke has been a patron of this event since 2013.

And back in Liechtenstein, Prince Hans-Adam, Princess Marie, Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie also held a New Year's reception at Schloss Vaduz on Thursday. Many more photos available here.

Earlier today, the sad news that the father of Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie has passed away reached us. For more information, we direct you to this post.
