Biding Ministers Farewell

While the royal world is currently focusing on the events going over in the Netherlands, Grand Duke Henri was busy biding farewell to two long serving ministers today. There's a bit of a cabinet reshuffle going on in the Grand Duchy and so the Grand Duke said goodbye to François Biltgen, the former Minister for Justice, for Communications and the Media, for Religious Affairs, for the Civil Service and Administrative Reform, and for Higher Education and Research - a lot, I know, but he was the minister with the most fields in the government - as well as Marie-Josée Jacobs, the now former Minister of Family, Integration and Equal Opportunities during two audiences this afternoon.

The two new ministers, Marc Spautz and Martine Hansen, will have audiences with the Grand Duke tomorrow so they can be sworn in.

Two small pictures are located on the website of the government, bigger ones are available on the website of the cour. RTL's evening news included a report about the two meetings, starting at 2:19.
