There's a cabinet reshuffle going on at the moment in Luxembourg and today saw the protocolar string of events that traditionally follow. Two days ago, Maggy Nagel resigned as Minister for Housing and Minister for Culture. And so today, Grand Duke Henri received several politicians in audience, starting with Marc Hansen, thus far State Secretary and now Minister for Housing. This was followed by a farewell audience for Maggy Nagel herself, during which she was awarded with the Civil and Military Order of Merit of Adolph of Nassau. While Prime Minister Xavier Bettel himself will take over the role as Minister of Culture, a new state secretary was named for his state ministry. Guy Arendt has taken on the position and was sworn in by the Grand Duke today.
