Duchess of Cambridge tours Luxembourg with princess

By Tony Jones

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Luxembourg yesterday for a visit hailed as a boost to relations between the UK and EU.

Kate flew to the country to join celebrations marking the signing of a treaty, brokered 150 years ago in London, that secured the future of the land-locked state.

Yvonne White, Britain's deputy ambassador to Luxembourg, insisted the visit was not linked to Brexit. But she added: "It will certainly help bilateral relations."

The Duchess was joined by Princess Stephanie from the Luxembourg royal family on a visit to the capital city's museum of modern art, Mudam.

Before leaving, Kate went on a walkabout and met a group of children from St George's International School.

British-born Alison Huckle, whose six-year-old son, George, met the Duchess said: "She was very down to earth."
