Luxembourg State Visit to Germany; April 23rd-25th, 2012
Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa are on a three-day state visit to Germany from April 23 - April 25, 2012.
The last state visit to Germany was made in 1977 by Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte.
Today's programme includes a welcome ceremony with German President Joachim Gauck and his wife, a meeting with the Mayor of Germany's capital Berlin at the famous "Brandenburger Tor" and a lunch at Charlottenburg Palace. A wreath laying ceremony will be followed by meetings with politicians. In the evening there will be a gala dinner at Bellevue Palace.
Here are some pics of day 1:

Is it the first State Visit for the new President ?
No, it's not his first state visit. The first one already took place at the end of March, a couple of days after
he's been elected. The Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj and his wife paid a state visit to Germany
back then :flowers:

May I ask why Guillaume was absent in the events that took place earlier in the day but was present in the evening gala/ dinner??? Since both the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess were there, I do not see his presence being needed, but he came to attend the evening gala/ dinner. Could it be possible that he did not want to miss such events because he is looking for a new gf??? LOL!
Here are some more pics and a video from yesterday:

Wonderful Hairdo much better than for the Nobel Price it Sweden!
Happy the see Prince Guillaume , it is sad that our King and Queen never did that with their son Philippe.
When Grand Duchess Charlotte paid a State Visit in the USA (President Kennedy), her Son Heditary Grand Duke Jean was there also.
