While in London for the grand Coronation ceremony of the UK’s monarch at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar met with King Charles III at a reception shortly after his arrival on Friday.
Dhankhar and his wife, Dr. Sudesh Dhankhar, are among the estimated one hundred world leaders invited to attend the coronation of Britain’s next queen.
“Hon’ble Vice President, Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar & Dr Sudesh Dhankhar arrived to a warm welcome in London to attend the Coronation Ceremony of H.M. King Charles III,” the Vice President’s Office tweeted.
During a reception at Marlborough House in London for Commonwealth leaders, “Hon’ble Vice President, Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar interacted with King Charles III,” reads another tweet.
The vice president arrived in London on time to join other Commonwealth leaders for talks at Marlborough House, hosted by Commonwealth General Secretary Baroness Patricia Scotland.
Before the Abbey ceremony, this was Dhankhar’s first chance to meet the 74-year-old monarch.
