ROYAL COUPLE AT MEMORIAL EVENT FOR HUMANITARIAN AID WORKERS

19/08/2019

Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine attended at Westminster Abbey a memorial service and laid flowers for all those who sacrificed their lives for the sake of humanity and humanitarian work.

In his speech, Crown Prince Alexander said: “My connection with Westminster Abbey has been a special one since I was christened here many years ago, my godmother is the Queen Elisabeth and my godfather was King George VI.

During the war which broke out in 1992, and indeed, after that war, in my country – the former Yugoslavia, humanitarian aid was desperately needed. It was faithfully brought by many people including Tony Richards, Neil Golightly and Julie Morant, whom we know lost their lives delivering vital aid, and whose loss was the reason why this event was started.”

Their Royal Highnesses were accompanied by Dr. Elaine Laycock, the Medical Advisor of Lifeline Humanitarian Organization United Kingdom.
