The Grand Duchess and I were deeply moved and saddened to learn of the passing of Your dear mother, Her Majesty the Queen.
The Queen played a considerable part in shaping the history of the United Kingdom as its longest serving monarch. We profoundly admired Her moral strength and determination. She was an exemplary monarch, most loved and respected by people all over the world.
Luxembourg has never forgotten the extraordinary support the United Kingdom gave to Grand Duchess Charlotte and her son, my father Jean, during World War 2. Their safe haven in London helped to preserve the very existence of my country in those dark times.
We are grateful for the close ties of our families and Her Majesty’s extraordinary and unique example of service to our country.
The people of Luxembourg join us in expressing to You and to the Royal Family, as well as to the people of the United Kingdom, our most heartfelt condolences and warmest sympathies.
