Guillaume & Stephanie I
Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Countess Stephanie de Lannoy exchanged civil vows at Luxembourg's town hall, mingling afterwards with enthusiastic crowds. I only caught the tail end of the live stream, but video highlights are available here and here. I usually wish I were British, but this weekend would be quite happy to be Luxembourgish. The couple's relaxed, warm, and happy demeanour is clearly reciprocated by their future subjects. There is not much of a sense of pressure; everyone is just having a good time. Blessed in many ways and enjoying its rare turn in the spotlight this weekend, Luxembourg is truly a fortunate country to have Guillaume & Stephanie as its future grand ducal couple.
