In expressing his delight at Andrée Hentgen-Theisen's acceptance of the role, Darren Robinson, President of the British-Luxembourg Society, highlighted her active participation over the years. He noted her frequent visits to the United Kingdom with the BLS and her consistent engagement in various events and initiatives.

"We are thrilled to welcome Andrée Hentgen-Theisen as our newest Patron," said Mr Robinson. "Her dedication to the Society and her active involvement over the years have been exemplary. We are grateful for her continued support and look forward to her participation in this new capacity."

As a Patron, Mrs Hentgen-Theisen's role is expected to further strengthen the BLS's mission to promote cultural exchange, foster friendship and deepen understanding between the people of Britain and Luxembourg.
