On Tuesday, July 2nd, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume was at Wimbledon to cheer on Luxembourg athlete Mandy Minella in her match against Kiki Bertens.

On the 3rd, Hereditary Prince Alois received the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Titov, who paid a courtesy visit to Schloss Vaduz. While in Liechtenstein, the Deputy Minister highlighted the 25 years of diplomatic relations between the countries, and both sides agreed about the importance of continued diplomacy.

Additionally, in light of the recent political scandal in Liechtenstein, with the dismissal of Councillor  (and former Foreign Minister) Aurelia Frick, Hereditary Prince Alois commented on the potential for further fallout. He noted that he wasn't concerned about significant impact, particularly from an international perspective.
