Message from Her Majesty The Queen to His Royal Highness Grand Duke Henri

Published Monday April 29 2019

“Your Royal Highness,

 I was tremendously saddened to learn of the death of your father Grand Duke Jean who served your country so well and for so many years.  I have very fond memories of your father, including from the time he spent in the United Kingdom during the Second World War. As you know, wishing to contribute to the liberation of his country, he volunteered for the British Army, serving with distinction in the Irish Guards of which he was later to become Colonel of the Regiment.

 Your father will be greatly missed, both inside and outside Luxembourg.  Prince Philip and I offer Your Royal Highness and the people of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg our most profound condolences. Elizabeth R”
