Message from HRH THE GRAND DUKE:
" I address you from the intensive care unit where my brother-in-law is hospitalized in Geneva.
Moved by a spirit of opening, transparency and modernity, I accepted that the mission that the prime minister wished to perform.
In The course of all this mission, and waiting for the corresponding report, articles have been published in the media, in which my wife, mother of our five children and grandma, has been unfairly put into question. This has affected my whole family.
What's the point of attacking a woman?
To a woman who defends other women?
To a woman who is not even allowed to defend herself?
Since my arrival to the throne we have wanted to contribute together to the modernisation of our constitutional monarchy, and it is our wish to continue on the same path
The causes of my wife, who have always deserved my support and those who will continue to dedicate our efforts, are of fundamental importance: the fight against dyslexia, the fight against sexual violence, the situation of minors imprisoned in Africa, the development of Microfinance, and the education of youth and women. I am proud of the commitment, intelligence and effort with which my wife carries out all her activities. Your delivery to the service of our country, by my side, for 39 years is exemplary and I find it indispensable.
We will continue at your service, working for you and Luxembourg. Especially at this crucial moment in which our children start a family life, we consider our duty of parents to allow them to enjoy these precious years in their quality of hereditary princes.
Great Duke of Luxembourg
Geneva, January 26, 2020 "
