King Charles Photographed At Windsor Home While Hosting Royal Guest For Dinner

On Bank Holiday Monday, the King hosted a distinguished guest at Windsor Castle. Grand Duke Henri, the head of the Luxembourg royal family, attended a dinner at the British monarch’s residence in Berkshire.

A photograph posted on the Grand Ducal Court’s Instagram account depicted King Charles, 75, and Grand Duke Henri, 69, both elegantly attired in suits, standing in the Grand Corridor at Windsor Castle. The background featured an array of ornate paintings, statues, and furniture, along with the gilded ceiling and domed window.

The caption read: “During a short stay in England, HRH the Grand Duke was received on Monday by HM King Charles III for a dinner at Windsor Castle.”

Charles and Henri are distant cousins, tracing their relation through King George II and Queen Caroline, who reigned in Britain in the mid-1700s.

Grand Duke Henri and his wife, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, both attended King Charles’ coronation at Westminster Abbey in 2023.

Recently, the royal couple welcomed their eighth grandchild following the birth of their daughter Princess Alexandra’s first child. The baby girl, named Victoire, was born in Paris on 14 May. However, the Grand Ducal Court has not yet shared the first photograph of the infant.

The Monarch’s Calendar

On Monday, the monarch issued a personal message, sharing his and wife Queen Camilla’s “heartfelt condolences to the families and communities” affected by the landslide in Enga, Papua New Guinea.

The King was also presented with the first seedling grown from seeds collected from the Sycamore Gap tree, nearly eight months after the historic tree was felled in an act of vandalism. The much-photographed tree, which had stood next to Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland for 200 years, was chopped down in September last year, causing national outrage.

Once the seedling has matured into a sapling, Charles plans to have it planted in Windsor Great Park for visitors to enjoy as a symbol of hope and beauty emerging from loss, according to the National Trust’s statement on Monday.

On Tuesday, the King held an audience with the President of the Republic of Latvia at Buckingham Palace.
