- Story Text: Britain's Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, undertook on Thursday (May 11) one of her first solo official visits to Luxembourg City, to mark the 150th anniversary of the Treaty of London which established the Grand-Duchy's independence and neutrality.
Greeted by Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg Princess Stephanie, the Duchess of Cambridge began her one-day visit at Modam, the modern art museum, before continuing to the grand-ducal palace at the heart of the city.
The Duchess, who is married to Prince William, the second in line to the British throne, and mother of infant Prince George and Princess Charlotte, greeted well-wishers who had come out especially for her, many long-time British residents of the small landlocked nation.
The visit will finish at the Drai Echelen museum before returning to Britain this evening.
