Before we head into a new week full of events for the Grand Ducal and Princely families, let's make a quick addition to last week's post as we somehow omitted the cutest event of the week: Prince Amalia and Prince Liam joined their dad, Prince Félix, and grandparents, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa for the EME Family Day at the Philharmonie. The aim of the EME Foundation is to entertain elder, ill, disabled or marginalised people by music. Archduchess Marie-Christine, niece of the Grand Duke, and her sons Léopold, Constantin and Gabriel also joined the fun.

On February 10, Prince Nikolaus attended the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Liechtenstein Press Club. The prince is the patron of the organisation. His older brother, Fürst Hans-Adam, also hosted a reception for the members of the Press Club at Schloss Vaduz that day. A news report at 1 FL TV. Meanwhile his oldest daughter Princess Anunciata was among the guests of an event for Frieze in Los Angeles this week as Vogue notes.
