When the Grand Ducal has an audience, is this something that you're invited to or can anyone attend?

Here are photos of the Jazz Concert from tonight at the Jeronimos Monastery.

Nascarlucy, normally audiences is just a word used for a meeting between two people, So when the Grand Duke & the President sat down together it's called an audience. Normally head of states invite people of interest and who have done good things for their country to have an audience with them, which is just a private meeting.

Would it be worth it?

Can we agree that MT looked absolutely nice here:
Cour grand-ducale de Luxembourg - Visite d'Etat au Portugal

AND I was reading a lot of comments regarding the colour combination of her dress and the emerald jewelry - guys - red and green are the colours of Portugal - I think she was simply trying to make a nice gesture.
