The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg first met their fifth grandchild by video call after his birth in May, as coronavirus social distancing guidelines were still in place in the country at the time. Prince Charles was brought home by his parents three days after his birth, with the royal couple donning face masks as they left the Grand Duchess Charlotte Maternity Hospital in Luxembourg City.
