King’s birthday party at the British residence in Zagreb

A reception was held on June 20th,  to mark the first official birthday of the former Prince Charles since he became king.  Normally, the birthdays of British monarchs are celebrated in May or June, regardless of when they were actually born, for example, Charles was born in November, and his late mother, Queen Elizabeth, on April 21th.

This tradition is more than 260 years long in order to hold the military parade in nice and sunny weather in otherwise quite rainy London. After the UK  Ambassador to Croatia  His Excellency Simon Thomas  and his wife Kristina welcomed the guests, mainly from the political life and business world, and other ambassadors in Zagreb.
