The Hereditary Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg spent some time at the traditional Emaischen festival in Luxembourg City today.

Guillaume and Stéphanie were treated to music, dancing and displays of peckvillercher, hand-crafted ceramic birds. Traditionally, the birds are given as gifts between lovers. Guillaume was seen blowing into the tail of one bird, as the ceramics are designed as whistles.

The festival is celebrated every year on Easter Monday, originally in the southern town of Nospelt, but now also takes place in the capital’s Fish Market.

    Guillaume is not the Grand Duke, he is the Grand Duke’s eldest son…

    @Rob yes, that is correct. As heir apparent, however, Guillaume carries the title of Hereditary Grand Duke, given to him when his father Henri ascended the throne in 2000 upon Grand Duke Jean’s abdication.
