Here’s King Charles III’s Message To Filipinos After Coronation
KING CHARLES III – Britain’s King Charles III delivered a message to Filipinos after the coronation.
The people in the United Kingdom once again saw the crowning of British royalty after many years. King Charles III was recently crowned as the new monarch of the United Kingdom and the heir apparent to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled the country for many years until her death on September 8, 2022.
King Charles is the eldest child born to Queen Elizabeth II and the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The crowning of the King of Britain was attended by world leaders. President of the Philippines Bongbong Marcos was among those who attended the great celebration.
Based on a report from ABS-CBN, King Charles III gave a message to Filipinos after the coronation. He expressed his gratitude to the Filipinos in the United Kingdom.
He handed it over to Philippine Ambassador to the UK Teodoro Locsin Jr. at the Presentation of Credentials of the Philippine envoy held at Buckingham Palace. The presentation of “Credentials” is for the newly-appointed Ambassador or High Commissioner to the UK, where the “Letter of Credence” or Credentials is carried by the reigning monarch for a formal ceremony.
“It was wonderful. He knows about the Philippines. It was such a long exchange,” said Locsin.
Teddy Locsin said it started with saying hello and the conversation turned to nature, which is close to the King’s heart. “We have the strictest environmental law in the world. We do not even allow the burning of hospital waste. He was very happy about that and then we talked about the climate change,” he shared.
King Charles also did not forget the Filipino healthcare workers. Locsin said, “He mentioned again the work, especially of the nurses. He asked how many are there. I said some 40 thousand nurses. He was very happy and surprised.”
According to the Nursing and Midwifery Council in the UK at the height of the pandemic, there were more than 42,000 registered Philippine-trained nurses in the country.
Locsin added, “The honour is given to you because that was very clear: The gratitude of the King for all the good work that the Filipinos in the UK have done in the United kingdom. I was just a messenger.”
