Crown Prince Guillaume in Brussels
(CS) Future Grand Duke Guillaume has begun a three-week stint in Brussels, shadowing justice commissioner Viviane Reding and meeting other EU officials.
The prince will spend the first two weeks with Reding, accompanying her to meetings and visits to the head offices of the EU in Brussels associated with Reding's work.
Guillaume is set to also meet two further commissioners, Connie Hedegaard from Denmark, responsible for climate, and Latvian Andris Piebalgs of the development aid department.
The third week of his stay will be spent at the Grand Duchy's EU embassy in the Belgian capital.
There, Crown Prince Guillaume will get the chance to participate in a meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives (Coreper), where the agenda for the Council of the European Union meetings is prepared, one of the central decision-making systems in the European Community.
