The President of France was visibly impressed by the Prince of Wales’ linguistic skills. President Macron bestowed the ‘Legion D’honneur’ on England’s capital city in recognition of London’s wartime role.
Prince Charles said: “Thank you for generously bestowing this high distinction to London.
“It is with immense pride and great pleasure that I accept this Legion D’honneur on behalf of London, the United Kingdom and all those who fought for freedom next to France.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron will most likely talk about the global fight against the novel coronavirus and Britain’s future relationship with the European Union at talks later on Thursday.
“President Macron is visiting London to mark an important event in the shared history of our two countries and to commemorate the sacrifices made during the Second World War,” Johnson’s spokesman told reporters.
“But it is also an opportunity for the PM and the president to discuss a range of other issues and I expect them to talk about the global fight against coronavirus and also for our future relationship with the European Union to come up.”
