The Crown Prince of Luxembourg Guillaume de Luxembourg (also know as the Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume) and his wife the Princess Stephanie have concluded a visit to New York City. Over a one week period, the princely couple attended several functions throughout the city including two high-visibility Luxembourgish community events:
The Luxembourg Business Awards are a biennial black tie gala dinner event honoring business successes between Luxembourg and the United States. This year’s edition was held May 15th at the historic Guastavino’s venue near the United Nations headquarters. Over 300 guests were in attendance including among different dignitaries, Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider, the Ambassador of Luxembourg to the United States and the Ambassador to the United Nations. The Awards went to honor Amazon for its huge investments in Luxembourg and Sacred Heart University (Ohio) for 50 years of presence in Luxembourg. The awards were given out by the Crown Prince and the Deputy Prime Minister.
Later in the week, the Princely couple held a private reception at the Consulate General of Luxembourg for 30 individuals who have recovered Luxembourg nationality. During the intimate reception, the Crown Prince delivered remarks to the group about Luxembourg and the history with the USA. The Prince and Princess then took the opportunity to meet with each and every participant at the event. It was a very diverse event with individuals from as far as Brazil and Minnesota attending the event, with participants from ages 2 to 90.
