(CS) With the due-date of their first child only a few weeks away in June, Luxembourg's Prince Félix and Princess Claire visited a perinatal centre in Itzig on Monday.

The couple were welcomed at “Initiativ Liewensufank” by president Claudine Claire, as well as manager Maryse Arendt and deputy-manager Monique Fey.

The soon-to-be-parents were given a presentation about the services offered by the centre, as well as touring the facilities.

Félix and Claire also joined a group of future parents for a course on how to hold and carry a newborn.

The young royals have long been supporters of the centre, raising funds for “Initiativ Liewensufank” at their wedding in September last year, when guests and well-wishers were asked to donate money to the project instead of a wedding gift.

While Claire's precise due-date has not been revealed, the Grand Ducal household said that the baby is expected for June when it announced the pregnancy earlier this year. In a recent interview, Prince Félix said that the baby would be born in Luxembourg. It is not known whether the couple are expecting a prince or a princess.
