Kensington Palace‏@KensingtonRoyal
The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Luxembourg on the 11th of May and attend the commemoration of the 1867 Treaty of London.

It is the next stage in what has been dubbed the Royals "Brexit tour" of Europe, which will see them visit Paris, Romania, Italy, Austria, Germany and Poland in the first half of the year.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said: "The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Luxembourg on the 11th of May and will attend the commemoration of the 1867 Treaty of London which confirmed Luxembourg’s independence and neutrality.

Is the Duchess of Cambridge going to be with any member of the Royal Family of Luxembourg?

Presumably there will be other royals present at this commemoration?

Good, time for the Duchess to meet other royals on her own.

She's already started.

Last fall she had lunch with King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima and their three daughters at the royal residence, Villa Eikenhorst.

These visits are at the request of the Foreign Office. She can't just up and travel to Denmark and meet with Prince Fredrick

Good. I like it when spouses go solo. Makes them less of an appendix to their royal husband/wife.

Between the diamond jubilee and London 2012 Olympics, Kate would have met tons of foreign royals. Even with WWI 100th anniversary, she would met some of them again.

Catherine had lunch with just the King. The Queen was in Argentina at the time. The Princesses were probably at school as it was a normal schoolday that day (Tuesday).

At minimum, I expect GD Henri and GD Maria Teresa to attend. It'd be weird if no one from the GDF attended the commemoration.

Several argumentative posts have been removed. If you wish to discuss the relationship between the Windsors and their European counterparts, please use this thread: The Windsors and Europe

This thread has also been renamed upon move to the Luxembourg forum.

THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT LUXEMBOURG Thursday 11th May, 2017

The Duchess of Cambridge, at the request of Her Majesty's Government, will visit Luxembourg on 11th May to participate in the official commemoration of the 1867 Treaty of London. During the visit, Her Royal Highness will also attend a series of engagements to celebrate the cultural and historic ties between the UK and Luxembourg.

On arrival, the Duchess will visit Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM) to tour current exhibitions by British artists Sir Tony Cragg and Darren Almond. At the museum, Her Royal Highness will also attend a reception with leading young Luxembourgers in the fields of culture, education, business and the charitable sector.

In the centre of the capital, the Duchess will visit Place Clairefontaine, and tour a cycling-themed festival, which celebrates the shared UK and Luxembourg passion for the sport. Her Royal Highness will be introduced to the Grand Duchy's most famous cycling icons, and meet children who are designing Tour de France jerseys, ahead of the tour coming to Luxembourg in July. The Duchess will also unveil a mural of British cyclist Tom Simpson and Luxembourgish cycling legend Charly Gaul.

Next, The Duchess will call on Their Royal Highnesses The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg at the Grand Ducal Palace.

Her Royal Highness will then join the official commemoration of the 1867 Treaty of London, which confirmed Luxembourg’s independence and neutrality, at Luxembourg City Museum. Here, a new collection about Luxembourg's history will be unveiled. Following this, Her Royal Highness, with other guests, will be led on a short walk outside the museum to take in the stunning views of the capital on the corniche (viewing trail).

The Duchess of Cambridge will continue to Dräi Eechelen Museum for the main commemoration event, where the Prime Minister, Mayor and Museum Director will speak. The Duchess will be given a guided tour of 'Luxembourg 1867 – Open City', the new exhibition, which explains how the dismantling of Luxembourg’s fortifications laid the foundation for the transformation of Luxembourg into an open and outward-looking city and country.

Loving the fact that our Catherine is flying solo on the royal stage. It shows how far she's come and her dedication to duty.

Yes I think it's neat that she's doing these day trips outside the UK....and if I understand it correctly she's being asked to come (or a member of the BRF is being asked to come) visit when she's going on these visits...it's not just 'busy work' being created.
