Your Majesties, Royal Highnesses, Monsieurs et Madames:
As I near my eighteenth birthday in a few months, I believe it is important for me to fully fit into my role as the Hereditary Prince of Horne. From working with certain charity groups and public volunteering to communicating to my friends, it is my foremost duty to represent the Principality and what it represents.
With great honour, I am excited to announce I will be making official visits in Europe during the months of September and October of this year. My father, His Highness the Prince of Horne, and I will be making visits to Munich (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Brussels (Belgium), London (England), Paris (France), Zurich (Switzerland), Vaduz (Liechtenstein), Innsbruck (Austria), and Venice (Italy) on behalf of the Principality of Horne.
Most importantly, we will be making an official visit to our pledged motherland of Horn in the Kingdoms of Belgium and the Netherlands. It has been 452 years since my family’s rule over Horn for 700 years and it is important to me, personally, to connect to the land and people of Horn.
Dank u. Merci.
Dylan d'Orléans, Hereditary Prince
