Ahead of the birthday celebrations on Monday, the young prince planted a cherry tree with his parents, Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie. The young prince was born on May 10 last year and is second in line of succession to the Luxembourgish throne.

In new photos shared on Instagram, Prince Charles was photographed wrapped in a blanket in the arms of his mother, while his father looks down adoringly.

In other photos, he is seen grabbing hold of a blue shovel as his father plants the cherry tree.

The caption read: “The Prince Guillaume, Princess Stéphanie and their son, Prince Charles, went to Oetrange to plant a cherry tree donated by the municipality of Contern in honor of the little Prince, born almost a year ago.

“The choice of this fruit tree, typical of the Syre valley region, underlines the municipality’s attachment to this variety.

“This interest is particularly evident in Medingen, a locality in Contern known as the “cherry village.

“During the ceremony, which took place in the presence of the College of Mayor and Aldermen as well as the municipal council, LL.AA.RR. and the Mayor of the commune of Contern, Mrs. Marion Zovilé-Braquet, unveiled a commemorative plaque while Prince Charles received a spade for children in memory of this morning.”

As Prince Charles was born during lockdown last year, his family were not able to meet him until a month after his birth.

Luxembourg’s royal family shared a series of photographs showing the heartwarming moment the Duke was finally able to see his grandson.

The photos were shared by the grand ducal family on Instagram.

In one of the pictures, Prince Charles can be seen resting on a large teddy bear as he takes a nap.

Other pictures show the Prince, who is now six-weeks-old sleeping on his mother’s arms at Fischbah castle.

“It is with great pleasure that Prince Guillaume and Princess Stéphanie reveal new pictures of their son Charles,” the caption read.

The royal baby is seen wearing white woolen dungarees, paired with a matching sweater and some beige woolen socks.

The young prince was pictured by himself, with his mother, with both his parents and with his grandfather Grand Duke Henri.

The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess could not meet Charles when he was born due to the social distancing measure implemented in Luxembourg during the coronavirus pandemic.

The royal couple resorted to a video call to be able to see their grandson for the first time.

Speaking of the birth of his son in May, Prince Guillaume said it was “probably the most incredible day that we will have in our life”.

He added: “To be able to greet the child that comes into one’s life is the most magical thing, parenting, a couple can have”.

In a statement, the Luxembourg royals said they were “delighted to announce the birth” of their son.

It read: “The Hereditary couple is delighted to announce the birth of their son this Sunday, May 10, 2020 at 5.13am at the Maternity Grande-Duchesse Charlotte in Luxembourg.

“The baby will bear the first names of Charles Jean Philippe Joseph Marie Guillaume.

“The child weighs 3.190 kg and is 50 cm tall.”
