Paul Dühr has been officially sworn in as the Marshal of the Grand Ducal Court, taking over the role vacated by Yuricko Backes, who stepped down in January to become the country's finance minister. 

Dühr, a career diplomat and a lawyer by training, was appointed to the position at the end of February and formally sworn in at a ceremony on Wednesday. He replaces Yuriko Backes, who became the Grand Duchy's first female finance minister in January

Dühr previously held a range of roles in Luxembourg's diplomatic service, including at the Council of Europe, the United Nations and World Trade Organization, and also served as ambassador in Paris and Rome.
