Inquam Prințul Charles la Patriarhie

The Prince of Wales received from His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel an icon made of a Murano glass mosaic portraying Saint Andrew and participated, in the Patriarchal Cathedral, in a short religious music moment performed by a Byzantine choir. The Prince was welcomed by His Eminence Nifon, Archbishop of Targoviste and Michael Tita, head of protocol at the Patriarchal Administration.

In the lobby of the Patriarchal Palace, he was welcomed by Patriarch Daniel, who presented to him the murals in the room, as well as their significance. The Patriarch told his guest that in this building the Union of the Principalities, Moldova and Wallachia, was signed in 1859. Continuing, the high prelate showed Prince Charles the conference room, of which he said was consolidated and restored recently using European funds. "It was very hard work, but the building is much stronger now than it was at the beginning," the Patriarch added.

The Prince of Wales asked if the room is used frequently, and Patriarch Daniel answered yes, because it is used for special events and conferences. Later, the two delegations held talks for approximately half an hour, afterwards the two officials exchanged gifts. The Prince of Wales offered Patriarch Daniel a set of plates. "I will use them next time, when you will be here for longer," Patriarch Daniel said.

His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel also received a framed photograph of His Royal Highness. Another important moment was represented by the visit to the Patriarchal Cathedral, where HRH lit a candle and recollected. In the church, he was not joined by Patriarch Daniel, only His Eminence Nifon, who was his guide within the church, offering details on the importance of the institution. All throughout their tour of the Patriarchal Cathedral, a Byzantine choir performed religious music. The Prince of Wales was joined during his visit to the Patriarchy by the Ambassador of the United Kingdom in Bucharest, Paul Brummell. The talks were also attended by Romania's ambassador in London, Dan Mihalache.
