In a series of pictures shared on the social media platform, the Luxembourg cherub was seen in the arms of his doting mothers as Guillaume and Stephanie went about their duties.
He seemed particularly interested in the opening of the playground named after him, and didn’t seem bother by the rain drizzling down on the town in south-west Luxembourg.
After expertly cutting the ceremonial ribbon, Stephanie and Guillaume stopped for a family cuddle before bringing Charles to the brand new slide which had been co-funded with the donations that had been received at the time of his birth.
The little one was then photographed beaming while sitting with his parents by the playground’s slide.
The stylish mother-of-one was wearing a sleeveless red, white and blue dress but wore no bag, keeping her hands free for her little one.
Her husband, the heir to the throne of Luxembourg and son of Grand Duke Henri and son of Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, looked smart in a blue suit with a crisp white shirt.
The family was welcomed to the country’s second biggest city by a little girl who offered flowers to Stephanie and Charles
All except Charles, who was too young, were wearing face masks when the Grand Ducal couple arrived
Stephanie and Guillaume both wore face masks during the event.
‘Ahead of tomorrow’s National Day, the hereditary couple revived the tradition of travelling to Esch-sur-Alzette, the country’s second biggest city, after festivities didn’t take place in 2020,’ a post on the social media platform read.
The visit was limited in size and followed a slimmed-down programme due to coronavirus restrictions.
The couple first attended a memorial service at the city’s war monument, before they opened the ‘Prince Charles’ inclusive playground.
It was co-financed by the town of Esch-sur-Alzette and the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess Foundation, which use the money that had been donated to mark Charles’ birth in 2020.
