PM John Briceno on King Charles III

King Charles will be officially proclaimed King on Saturday. This will happen at St James’s Palace in London, in front of a ceremonial body known as the Accession Council. The symbolic high point of the accession will be the coronation when King Charles is formally crowned. Prime Minister John Briceno shared today that he has personally met King Charles, describing him as humble. 

John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “I think that if he were to follow the example of his mother who served selflessly for 70 odd years and he has had a first hand look at what his mother was doing. I have every confidence that he will be able to serve, not only with grace but also with humility to be able to lead the United Kingdom especially during these turbulent times. So I wish him well. He has been understudying his mother for decades and I do have every confidence he will be able to serve his, in the United Kingdom and also the Commonwealth countries. I have met with him on a few occasions and I’ve spoken to him. I know that he is big into conservation. He was into conservation before it was en vogue, before it was a thing to do. Probably from the seventies he was calling for conservation. So every time we meet we talk about conservation and what is it that we can do. He is excited about what Belize has been doing. The last time we met,. I think it was in *Unclear*i and he was very excited about the Blue Bond and I was asking him for an explanation, how it has worked out and he also was putting us in touch with other groups that can help to raise funds for conservation so I know him to be a person that has some wit you know, when he’s speaking with you. He’s down to earth. He’s humble despite the fact that, you know, he comes from such a very important family and I do believe that he iis going to do well.”
