Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa visited the homeless shelter in Findel, 3 March 2018.

The centre is part of the Wanteraktioun programme run by Caritas during colder weather months.

The royal couple visited the shelter during breakfast time, meeting clients who had spent the night, according to a palace statement. (Low temperature mark on Saturday morning: -4.)
