Finally! It seems like it has been awhile since we have last seen photos. This doesn't look like the most exciting event, but the Grand Duke and Duchess both look wonderful.

Thanks for that Kyansaunt20! There's two more here:
Cour grand-ducale de Luxembourg - Visite Ã* l'Institut Saint-Joseph
The Grand Duchess visited the Saint Joseph Institute, whose work is somehow connected to Youth & Family, although I'm not sure what FARE Service is, maybe a Luxembourg member can help?

Cour grand-ducale de Luxembourg - Audience de l'asbl ProActif
Another audience with the Grand Duke, this time with the members of the board of ProActif asbl, whose job is to promote employment defined by the National Plan for Employment. The same photo is available in a slightly larger format here on the site of ProActif asbl: Bienvenue chez ProActif a.s.b.l. - Espace Client

And if anyone's interested in the specifics, the audience which was in the link Kyansaunt20 posted was with:
The Prime Minister and members of the government
The President
Members of the Chamber of Deputies and the Council of State (I'm not sure on this one, as it just says "The office of the Chamber of Deputies etc)
Representatives of the European Institutions
Heads of diplomatic missions in Luxembourg
Members of the House(hold?) of TRH.

Sorry about my rather dodgy translation

Yikes, bronchopneumonia seems to be making the royal rounds lately. First Queen Fabiola and now GD Henri! Let's hope they both make a speedy recovery.

In case anyone is interested:

I have not read anything about him being hospitalized. It sounds to me as if he is recovering at home. I really hope that he is starting to get well.

He must be feeling a bit better, as he attended a presentation about the proposed extension of central storage pumping in Vianden today. This extension will include the construction of a pump-turbine of 200MW and additional expansion of the upper and lower reservoirs of the order of 500.000m ³

"Grand Duke Henri, who recently cancelled his engagements due to a bout of broncho-pnuemonia, today returned to work, attending a presentation about the proposed extension of central storage pumping in Vianden. This extension will include the construction of a pump-turbine of 200MW and additional expansion of the upper and lower reservoirs of the order of 500.000m³.
It is not known when the cancelled engagements, including a state visit to Vietnam, will take place."
