Stéphanie makes a stunning impression at Gala dinner

Luxembourg's Grand Duke Henri gave the ultimate blessing to his son and daughter-in-law when, during Friday's gala wedding reception, he told them “you were made for each other.”

During the glitzy reception at the palace to celebrate the wedding of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume to Stéphanie de Lannoy the Grand Duke gave a rousing speech, thanking his distinguished guests.

And, he had plenty to say to the bride and groom. "When we see you, there is absolutely no doubt that you are made for each other, ready to share joyful moments, but also the downside of life with each other, and to be there in the service of your family as well as in the service of the country, over which you will one day prevail."

The dinner, hosted at the palace in Luxembourg City, the Chamber of Deputies building next door and the Cerle Cité in Place d'Armes, attracted dignitaries and nobility from all over Europe. Other important guests are expected to attend Saturday's religious ceremony at Luxembourg's Notre-Dame Cathedral.
