Indian High Commissioner presents credentials to King Charles

London, Dec 8 (PTI) Indian High Commissioner to the UK Vikram Doraiswami presented his credentials to King Charles III at Buckingham Palace in London on Thursday, marking the formal start of his UK posting.

Doraiswami is the first Indian envoy to be received at the palace by the King since the death of Britain’s longest-serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, in September.

The ceremony steeped in tradition involves a horse-drawn carriage, which conveyed the High Commissioner and his wife, Sangeeta, from their official residence to the palace.
