Luxembourg's Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple Visit Japan

Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg and his wife Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie visited Tokyo, Japan today to meet with fellow royalty, and government and business leaders.

Guillaume and Stéphanie were greeted by Crown Prince Naruhito at Akasaka Palace, formerly the residence of the Crown Prince and now the official accommodation for visiting dignitaries.

The Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple also met with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzō Abe.

The visit also included lunch with Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, and a visit to the Meiji Shrine, which honours the late Emperor Meiji and his late wife Empress Shōken.


  1. Thanks for this post Charlotte!! I so rarely see news about this royal couple since their beautiful wedding, it's nice to see what they're up to. I really like Stephanie's updo, very professional but lovely. Not a huge fan of the coat she's wearing, it's a bit much on the eyes, like an optical illusion.

    Stephanie is lovely and I love her elegant hair style. I agree with Lauri on the coat though, something Escher would dream up. Perhaps she thought it looked Japanese but it doesn't to me.
