New Military Rank for Guillaume

On May 25th, a Grand Ducal decree was issued appointing the Hereditary Grand Duke to the rank of a lieutenant colonel in the army. Until know (since around the time of National Day 2010, if I recall correctly), Guillaume held the rank of a major. After being the first one of Grand Duke Jean's grandsons to graduate from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in August 2002, the Hereditary Grand Duke was sworn in as an officer in the Luxembourgish army later that year.
