Grand Duke Meets Prime Minister of Portugal

In what seems like one of the most cordial official visits - just look at the picture links - ever, the Prime Minister of Portugal António Costa paid a visit to Luxembourg today. Among other things on his agenda, he was received by Grand Duke Henri at the palais. It's probably no surprise that the Portuguese PM felt right at home in Luxembourg: And estimated 120,000 of the 550,000 people living in the Grand Duchy were either born in Portugal or are of Portuguese ancestry - and I guess the Grand Duke himself doesn't actually count into the statistic but he, of course, has two Portuguese great-grandmothers as well.

Pictures (though no more of the Grand Duke) at Wort and Le Quotidien, a video including a short glimpse of Grand Duke Henri at RTL.
