President of the EU commission, who assumed the Presidency of the European Commission after Jean-Claude Juncker stepped down in December, almost became a Luxembourger.
The comment came following her visit to the Grand Duchy, during which she met both Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Gran Duke Henri. Her tweet reads: "I was born in brussels but almost became a Luxembourger (my father first worked in #Luxembourg & two of my brothers were born here." ;) Great to meet His Royal Highness The Grand-Duke of Luxembourg and PM Xavier Bettel."
