Prince Charles Jean Philippe Joseph Marie Guillaume of Luxembourg was born on 10 May 2020 in Luxembourg City’s Maternité Grande-Duchesse Charlotte (Grand Duchess Charlotte Maternity Hospital). He is the first child of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie and is second in line to the throne.
Charles’s baptism took place on 19 September 2020 at the Abbaye Saint-Maurice de Clervaux (Abbey of St. Maurice and St. Maurus of Clervaux) in Luxembourg. His paternal uncle, Prince Louis, and maternal aunt, Countess Gaëlle de Lannoy, were named as godparents.
The little royal regularly accompanies his parents on engagements in Luxembourg, with his most recent appearance being on 5 May, when he joined his parents on a visit to Parc Merveilleux. Prince Charles was seen petting and greeting many of the animals in the tourist park and zoo. He was even given a chance to ride a children’s with his mum and dad.
