I like how Guillaume is studying political science. It will give him a good background for when he does become Grand Duke and it shows that he is thinking about his future and about one day being Grand Duke. He didn't choose some random major that won't help him when he's older. He's a smart kid.

Well, he doesn't seem to be too athletic, so he probably is smart.

Although, I guess he would have to be reasonably athletic to have completed his training at Sandhurst... well, back then anyway. Hmm... brains and brawn... fantastique!

Guillaume's speech when he became HGD

Guillaume's speech was given in Luxembourgese (I know that's not spelled correctly). This is a from a French translation:

Mesdames, Messieurs,

Monsieur the President of the Chamber and Monsieur the Minister of State have just underlined, in their cordial speech, the great tasks which I will begin to assume during the course of the following years.

You wish, rightly, for me to benefit from my studies so that they will prepare me for the responsibilities that I will later have to assume.

Monsieur the Minister of State declared that I will be able from now on to attend the Council of State to learn how our democratic institutions work.

As of September, I was pleased to accompany the Minister of State and Madame the Foreign Minister at the plenary assembly of the UNO. In April, I will assist Monsieur the Minister for the Economy and Board of Economic Development during my first voyage to Korea, and tomorrow, I will learn about the function of the President of the Krääizbierg Foundation: as you can noted, I endeavor to fulfill my mission as well as possible.

Dear parents,

The title of Hereditary Grand-Duke was conferred to me today and my role was thus officially established by our authorities and of our institutions. This title is proof of the great confidence that you have in me and I thank you for that. You, like my grandparents, led by example and taught me how to work for our country. I am determined to follow this example. Two months ago, you took the country in this direction. Luxembourg in its entirety grants to you the support of our fellow-citizens because they know that you share in the lives of each one of them.

To conclude, I would like to confirm to you, to all of you, that I will do my best to work in the interest of our country and our people and to ensure equity, solidarity and well-being for all.
