The Prince's commitment to the Scout Movement

Prince Guillaume has been involved with the Scouts since he was very young. Since 2019, he has been Luxembourg's new Chief Scout, a very important role for the Prince, which he took on following the death of his grandfather, Grand Duke Jean. Did you know that Luxembourg currently has around 7,500 scouts?

The Scout Movement was founded in England by Baden-Powell in 1907. It didn't take long for it to arrive in Luxembourg. Just seven years, in fact. And then it grew very quickly. There are now 85 active Scout groups throughout the country. They offer children and young people (aged 6 to 20) the chance to get involved in a wide range of activities, from outdoor adventures to aid missions.

Grand Duke Jean was a Scout until his death, handing over the scarf to his grandson, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume. He has been Luxembourg's Chief Scout since 2019. He took over this task after the death of his grandfather, Grand Duke Jean. Prince Guillaume has also taken on responsibilities in the World Scout Foundation. The values promoted by the Scouts have always been important to the Grand Ducal Family. These values include teamwork, taking responsibility, respect for others and the environment, as well as supporting the personal development of every child.
