King Charles and Queen Consort give young fan special audience, to pay respect to Queen Elizabeth II on Remembrance Day

City of York Councill Twitter

King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla recently visited their subjects in York. They spent some time with a young fan called Jason. The heartening moments came after the five year old’s mother wrote a letter to Buckingham Palace saying that her young son would not be able to see the King and his Queen as he had poor eyesight.

Young Jason wrote a letter to the York Council, which was sent to Buckingham Palace. The letter said that his visual impairment was serious and it would not allow him to see the royal couple in the crowd. So, staff arranged for him to meet them up close.

 

Jason Tweedie-Long was seen wearing a multi-colored court in two pictures with King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla. In one photo he is standing in front of Her Majesty and in the other he is in the center holding hands with both of them. All three of them are smiling.

The royal couple visited York to unveil a statue of Queen Elizabeth that was commissioned to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee.

On Saturday, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla as well as other British royals gathered at the Royal Albert Hall for the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance. They were attending the event to commemorate those who had died in the war. Prince William, King Charles, Princess Kate and Queen Consort Camilla sat in front, with Princess Anne behind them, during the Saturday night service.  All of them wore the poppy motif.

 

On Sunday, there will be a Remembrance Day Service that will take place at the Cenotaph, in White Hall. King Charles will lay a poppy wreath. It will incorporate a scarlet, purple and gold ribbon, which are his racing colors. It will be a extremely poignant moment as this is the his first service as King. Queen Elizabeth II always considered the Remembrance Day Service as one of the most significant and important engagements in her royal duties in her 70-year old reign. There will be a special tribute to her.
