Today, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa were at the Monument National de la Solidarité to participate in a commemoration ceremony to mark the end of World War II in Europe. The Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess first arrived at the Kanounenhiwel, where Henri laid a wreath at the monument of the Flamme du Souvenir (remembrance flame) and then rekindled it after attendees observed a moment of silence.

After this, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa went inside the monument to sign the guest book and visit with other attendees, including those who participated in putting the ceremony together. Additionally, Henri and Maria Teresa spoke with a group of young people who were active in the day's events.

Also in attendance were Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider, and President of the Chamber of Deputies Mars de Bartolomeo.
