German Minister for Health Jens Spahn (CDU) congratulated Merkel on the sidelines of the cabinet meeting, saying "I wish her all, all the best, happiness, health".

When Chancellor Angela Merkel presumably resigns her post in 2021 at the latest, she will join the Gallery of German Chancellor portraits in the capital.

"The Federal Ministry of Defence, the Minister of Defence, is the holder of command and authority".

Von der Leyen, who was confirmed on Tuesday by the European Parliament as the next head of the European Union's executive commission, steps down from her German role on Wednesday.

On Monday her spokesman became as soon as forced to elevate an announcement about why Mrs Merkel regarded somewhat breathless at some level of a flow to to Paris. But Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer has struggled to boost the fortunes of the CDU since taking charge in December. Kramp-Karrenbauer is expected to take up the appointment around 11am on Wednesday.

Nick posted two photos of his lady love, in which she is wearing a pink saree and smiling wide. "Light of my world". ET caught up with Nick in April, where he called blending his and Priyanka's family a "beautiful thing."

But Kramp-Karrenbauer, 56, whose governing experience is limited to a stint as premier of the tiny state of Saarland, promised earlier this month to stay out of government, saying "there is enough to do in the CDU".

Basically, though, German media is respectful, with many commentators adamant that the chancellor must be taken at her be aware and her privateness must be revered.

After nearly six years in the post, she has been mired in accusations about Germany's military readiness, with helicopters that can not fly, submarines that can not sail, and an investigation into her use of outside consultants.

A collection of excessive shaking incidents at reputable occasions has got Germans speaking about her properly being.

The decision had Merkel's blessing. But she will have to navigate deteriorating transatlantic relations.
