Luxembourg's Grand Duke Jean will step down as regent of the European Union's smallest and wealthiest state Saturday, abdicating in favor of his eldest son, 45-year-old Henri. The hand-over is more about continuity than change for a tiny nation that has carved out a place for itself between more powerful neighbors. Luxembourg has a constitutional monarchy, requiring the grand duke to sign bills into law and giving him the power to dissolve parliament.
