Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg gets own website



Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg now has her own website dedicated to her royal work. It can be found at https://www.grande-duchesse.lu/.

The website is to shine a light on her dedicated work and commitments. The Grand Ducal Court said in a press release, “Whether in the humanitarian or social field, the Grand Duchess strives to support the poor, to give a voice to those who are not heard or listened to, point to injustices and draw attention to problems in society often ignored.”

They added, “The site also helps to discover the personality of the Grand Duchess, the person behind the official functions that she occupies. The Grand Duchess opens her personal family albums and throws a look behind the scenes of the palace, to share intimate moments with her children, her hobbies and interests.”

There are sections focused on her life with images and information from her childhood to meeting Grand Duke Henri, having her children and her royal life and charitable work.

Visitors to the site will also find a list of her patronages alongside events she has attended for those organisations. For example, her recent trip to Lebanon is featured, as is her work throughout Luxembourg.

Images and videos are also posted from her travels across the globe working on behalf of organisations close to her heart.

Her Royal Highness’s website will be updated regularly with information on her activities and the causes she supports.

It has been launched ahead of the forum “Stand, Speak, Rise” – aimed at ending sexual violence – which Her Royal Highness has organised in Luxembourg. The forum will take place on 26 and 27 March 2019.

This is a separate website from the official site dedicated to the Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg.
