This week was much influenced by Luxembourg's National Day which took place last weekend. For our coverage please have a look at our posts about the National Day events, the gala and the fashion during all the events. The National Day events continued with a second garden party on Monday this week hosted by the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess. More pictures.

On Tuesday, the launch of the white paper about the "Stand Speak Rise Up!" conference hosted by Grand Duchess Maria Teresa was announced.  The white paper is available here.

On Wednesday it was audience time in the Grand Duchy as Grand Duke Henri received the directorate general of the Caisse Médico-Complémentaire Mutualiste, a supplemental health insurance supplier, as well as representatives of the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation.

On Thursday, Grand Duke Henri got to be bus driver for a day as he visited the transportation company Sales-Lentz Group. (Well, sort of - he simply toured their facilities and got to sit down in some fancy busses and more.)

Continuing his run of fun activities that day, the Grand Duke also visited the valley of the river Syre and the birdringingstation Schlammwiss. Parts of the valley are run by the the Fondation Hëllef fir d’Natur - natur&ëmwelt, the Grand Duke is patron of. Plenty of photos at the cour.

There weren't an awful lot of Liechtenstein news this week apart from Hereditary Prince Alois receiving several new ambassadors to the country to be presented with their letters of credence. The new ambassadors came from Benin, Saudi Arabia, Chad, Bulgaria and Vietnam.
