If crown prince Guillaume wasn’t the heir to Luxembourg’s grand ducal family, he’d be a chef preparing Italian cuisine he told pupils at St George’s international School.
During a visit to the primary section of the private school on Thursday to mark its thirtieth anniversary, the oldest of Grand Duke Henri’s children opened up to pupils about his personal life.
While his youngest brother, Prince Sébastien, attended St George’s International School, the crown prince completed his schooling at the Lycée Robert Schuman, followed by the Institut Le Rosey and then Beausoleil college in Switzerland.
He confided in the youngsters that history had been his favourite subject in school. When not participating in official duties and taking care of his infant son, Charles, he said he enjoys playing tennis and eating Asian cuisine.
On a more serious note, the young heir spoke of his admiration for Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, the "banker to the poor" who pioneered the concepts of microfinance and microcredit.
During the visit, Prince Guillaume unveiled a history mural depicting highlights from the school’s three-decade history.
