New mum Princess Stephanie looked beautiful in a £159 white lace and pleated dress by Seraphine as she held her baby son in her arms, who was swaddled in a cream blanket. The royal couple wore face masks as they left Grand Duchess Charlotte Maternity Hospital In Luxembourg City, but removed them briefly for a photo call with the press.

He continued: "We are delighted to do so in a time that has been a bit more difficult especially for families who have been separated for a few months, which in the next weeks are going to be able to see each other again. A birth is a message of hope, it is a blessing. This is what we are so happy to be able to share with Luxembourg, but also over the borders with all the different countries."
