In a surprising announcement on Luxembourg’s National Day, Grand Duke Henri announced he will be stepping back from his royal duties.

In October 2024, his son, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, will take over the governorship of the country.

The Grand Duke will retain his title, but he will be represented by his son. Officially, his son will be Vice-Representative in October.

In an X post, the Grand Ducal Court wrote, “In this context, I, together with the #GrandeDuchesse, Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie, inform you that I have decided to transfer the Lieutenancy to Prince Guillaume this October.

The #GrandDuc has appointed #PrinceGuillaume Lieutenant-Representative.”
