'Villa Hilda' ​in Berg

This is the house where Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie lived before moving to Fischbach Castle in 2019.
This residence is located in Berg, close to Berg Castle.
The historic house "Villa Hilda" was also inhabited in the past by Princess Hilda of Luxembourg.

I visited the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg City. I had to pay ! in Brussels free. Very small Palace because of the location in the City and absolutely not glittering, odd Curtains! I remember most of the Paintings of the Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses of the Past were removed in the second Room and in the main Paintings of the Grand Duchess and her Family. I did not remember a big dining Room and don't know if the Royals during their State Visit have their Room in the Palace or in a Grand Hotel in the City !

There was once a Report before a big State Visit that the use the Chamber of the Parliament (which is then emptied) for such big Dinners. Both buildings are connected to each other

It wouldn't be my favourite residence and I have noticed the curtains in photos so I tend to agree.

I have to tell a story that happened when I lived in Luxembourg between 1972 and 1978. Prince Charles of Luxembourg , Grand Duc Jean 's Brother succeeded to have "GoodYear" in Luxembourg. One of the Manager received an Invitation for an Evening Event at the Palace. She said to his wife, we will go to Paris to buy an Evening Dress.
When they arrived at the Grand Ducal Palace , someone rushed to them and said "Madame you are wearing the same dress as the Grand Duchesse" and they had to return home and an old Dress was worn for the Event.

In view of World Autism Awareness Day, which is being held this Saturday, the Grand Ducal Palace is adorned, until 3 April 2022, with blue illumination in support of the solidarity movement.
