According to Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, both the baby and the mother are doing well.

"It gives us great joy to be able to hold such a small baby in our arms."

It's one of the most beautiful moments that a family can experience together. Circumstances were very different when Prince Charles was born during the pandemic.

The day of Prince François' birth, Grand Duke Henri came to get Prince Charles, so that he could spend the day together with his grandparents.

"It was very endearing to see Charles' reaction when he was told that little François was born. He was very lovely and didn't hesitate to approach him."

The Grand Ducal palace announced the birth of little Prince François on Monday 27 March, with a 21-gun salute to mark the new addition's safe arrival.
