Members of the Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg Host a Private Dinner for U.N. Secretary General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon. Plus, News Regarding My Oh So Favorite Royal at the Moment, His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain.

On April 17, 2012, His Royal Highness Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg held an audience with United Nations Secretary General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon at the Grand Ducal palace in Luxembourg.  Afterward, the grand duke along with Their Royal Highnesses Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg hosted a lovely private in  for Mr. Ki-Moon and his wife, at Château de Berg.

Meanwhile, the Spanish newspaper, El Pais, is reporting that His Majesty King Juan Carlos’ recent $57,850 elephant killing vacation in Botswana last week was allegedly paid for by a wealthy man named Mohamed Eyad Kayali.  Mr. Kayali is apparently a “…Syrian businessman…”*  who resides between Marbella and Madrid and “…tends to act as a representative for the royal house of Saudi Arabia in Spain, whose business he defends and promotes.”  Now,  El Pais is a reliable and highly respected newspaper in Spain; however, it is unconfirmed by the royal court of Spain as to whether or not El Pais’ reports are true.
