About a month ago, Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider decided who would become the new Chief of General Staff of the Luxembourgish army after considerations with a number of people including the Grand Duke. The change came into effect this month and today Grand Duke Henri received the outgoing Chief of General Staff, Mario Daubenfeld, as well as the incoming, Romain Mancinelli, for audiences at the palais. Pictures of both are available on the website of the cour. Attentive national day viewers will know Romain Mancinelli as the colonel giving the commands to the soldiers during the parade including the triple vive for the Grand Duke and the Grand Ducal Family.
