LONDON – On both sides of the Atlantic over the past week, senior members of the British Royal Family have appeared on the world stage – and put their main concerns at the forefront.
The diplomatic war of members of the British Royal family is very important to show the existence of the country. Not only in its former colonies or colonies, but to guarantee the world’s trust in Britain.
Here are 2 British royal diplomacies in one week.
1. King Charles Visits France
In what appeared to be carefully coordinated timing, England’s King Charles made his first state visit to France as monarch, landing in Paris a day after his eldest son and heir, Prince William, completed a two-day trip to New York City.
“There has been speculation that King Charles III’s reign would have been more focused on England than on the world stage, as some of these longer tours did not take place,” said Toronto-based author and royal historian Carolyn Harris. interview, reported by CBC News.
“But now we are seeing King Charles III and the Prince of Wales step onto the world stage and that is likely to continue in the coming months.”
Charles’ three-day visit, which ends on Friday, was postponed from March, when there were mass protests over pension reform in France.
This week’s trip is just the latest in a series of royal visits to the country across the English Channel. Charles made 34 visits there as Prince of Wales.
This time, as king, there was also high-level diplomacy at play.
“There is an important diplomatic element to this visit, as the UK is renegotiating its relations with other European countries following Brexit,” Harris said.
While this journey may look to the future, there are also parallels to the past, and a new king emerging on the world stage following the death of his long-reigning mother.
