Grand Duke Receives Portuguese Prime Minister

Grand Duke Henri received the Prime Minister of Portugal in audience today. The visit is part of Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho's two day working visit to Luxembourg. Prime Minister Coelho will meet with many Luxembourgish politicians discussing matters ranging from education to emigration.

Portugal and Luxembourg have a special relationship because more than 16 percent of the population are of Portuguese origin. The Grand Duke is himself descended from King Miguel I of Portugal no less than 3 times!

Another photo of the Prime Minister and the Grand Duke shaking hands can be found at the website of the Cour. More pictures can be found at Wort.
