The newly announced monarch of Britain, King Charles III, is back to his duties after ending the official mourning period in the Royal family of the UK. King visited to meet the settled families of Aberdeen from Afghanistan, Syria and Ukraine and heard about programmes established by Aberdeen City Council to support them.
On arrival in Aberdeen, King Charles III was greeted by The Lord Provost before heading to the city’s Town Hall, where he further had a meeting with some key workers who helped support Aberdeen’s refugee communities.
The King then joined a reception where he met Afghan, Syrian and Ukrainian families who Government Schemes have supported in Aberdeen.
King of the United Kingdom had the opportunity to hear personal stories from families on their evacuation, arrival in Aberdeen, and some of their challenges.
The official website of the royal family also shared the information while adding, “The reception came to an end with a choir, made up from Dyce Primary School pupils and Robert Gordon University students, who sang ‘The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen’ with support from Afghan, Syrian and Ukrainian people who have settled in Aberdeen.”
The King also had the chance to meet some well-wishers who had gathered in Aberdeen.
