The Prince of Wales will start, on Wednesday, his official visit to Romania, the Romanian National News Agency Agerpres being the sole media partner of the event. The British Ambassador in Bucharest, Paul Brummell, stated last week in an interview granted to AGERPRES that the visit of Prince Charles, a great friend and admirer of Romania, represents the celebration of the strength of the ties between the two countries. "This is His Royal Highness' second official visit here to Romania, but he is no stranger to Romania. He visits very frequently on a private basis. He is a huge friend and admirer of Romania, he has a foundation here in Romania, supporting the preservation of traditional architecture and development of traditional crafts, for example," the British diplomat stated.
He emphasized that the visit of Prince Charles represents "celebrating and underlining the strength of our bilateral ties". Paul Brummell showed that Prince Charles will have meetings with President Klaus Iohannis and Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu, but also organizations working in various domains, but which "have a common denominator of involving collaboration in one way or another between the United Kingdom and Romania". "I think that is really the underpinning message of his visit is that it will be a celebration of the amazingly diverse ways in which British and Romanian people and organizations are working together to do really good things," Brummell said.
The Presidential Administration has announced that President Klaus Iohannis will welcome, on Wednesday, Prince Charles at the Cotroceni Palace and that the topics of discussion will target the development and deepening the Strategic Partnership relation between Romania and the United Kingdom, including the security domain, the evolution of relations between the two countries in view of the Brexit, with emphasis on the situation of the Romanian community in the UK, as well as the ample charitable activity of the Prince of Wales in Romania.
The head of state will confer upon Prince Charles the Grand Cross of the Star of Romania, as a token of high esteem for his activity in Romania and for his promotion of Romania's image abroad. Prince Charles's official visit to Romania will conclude on Friday. The British Embassy in Bucharest and the Romanian National News Agency AGERPRES have concluded a partnership for the media coverage of the official visit to Romania of the Prince of Wales.
According to a release of the Embassy of the United Kingdom to Romania, all information regarding the event will be communicated in a media pool system. AGERPRES, as sole media partner of the event, will make available for the other news broadcasters of Romania, freely, video and photo materials, as well as text materials from the public meetings that will take place during the Prince of Wales's visit.
