It is with great sadness that the British-Luxembourg Society has learned of the passing away this morning of
Grand Duke Jean.

Grand Duke Jean was for many years the Patron of the Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Lectures and we were recently advised by his Chamberlain that the Grand Duke was pleased to hear that we are reviving the Lectures.

Grand Duke Jean was a great friend of the United Kingdom having served in the British Army as an officer in the Irish Guards during the second world war. He was subsequently Colonel of the Regiment and an Honorary General in the British Army. He was frequently to be seen at the annual Trooping of the Colour riding behind Her Majesty the Queen.

HRH Grand Duke Jean was much loved by all who came into contact with him.
We send our condolences to the Grand-Ducal family and to the people of Luxembourg.

The state funeral will take place on 4th May at 11am in the Cathedral in the city.
