List of ambassadors of the United Kingdom to Luxembourg
The Ambassador from the United Kingdom to Luxembourg is the United Kingdom's foremost diplomatic representative in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and in charge of the UK's diplomatic mission in Luxembourg. The official title is Her Britannic Majesty's Ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Although diplomatic relations were established in the 19th century, the United Kingdom's Ambassador to Belgium was concurrently accredited to Luxembourg as a non-resident Envoy until 1940, when Belgium was overrun by Nazi Germany. Upon liberation of Luxembourg, in 1944, the United Kingdom appointed its first resident head of a diplomatic mission to Luxembourg. Upon the end of the war, the head of the mission to Luxembourg reverted to Brussels, with the resident structure being predominantly replaced by the military mission, but a resident head of mission was soon restored, in 1949. Geoffrey Alchin held the title of Minister until he was upgraded to Ambassador in 1955; since then the heads of mission have been Ambassadors.
