The British Embassy in Belgrade celebrated the coronation of King Charles III with a reception at the residence of Ambassador Sian MacLeod
Due to the tragic events that rocked Serbia last week, the embassy had previously canceled the official viewing of the coronation ceremony and the picnic for the British living in Serbia. The Belgrade reception included a significantly smaller number of guests, a different tone, and changed the protocol, including a suitable musical program prepared by the St. George Strings.
The string players, with the support of Ambassador MacLeod, performed works by Elgar, Skoryk, and Handel. On Saturday, King Charles III became the 40th British monarch to be crowned at a ceremony in Westminster Abbey, attended by around 2.000 guests. More than 6.000 members of the British Armed Forces and nearly 400 of their colleagues from 35 Commonwealth countries participated in the London coronation ceremony and parade.
