Grand Duke Commemorates

Today was National Commemoration Day in Luxembourg and, as every year, Grand Duke Henri participated in some of the events marking this day. This morning a church service was held at the Cathédrale Notre-Dame, you probably know from the yearly Te Deum held on National Day.

Thereafter he visited the Monument National de la Solidarité that shall remember the fallen of the Second World War, as well as Luxembourgish resistance and solidarity. At the monument the Grand Duke laid a wreath and relit the eternal flame burning on the Kanounenhiwwel were it is situated.

Pictures of both the mass and the wreath ceremony are available at Wort. More pictures can be found on the official website of the Grand Ducal Family. The always convenient RTL has a video of today's activities.
