Mr Vladimir Putin
President of the Russian federation
I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of former President Boris Jeltsin.
I extend my condolences to you and would ask you to convey my deepest sympathy to his family in their bereavement, and to the Russian people.
“If there is one piece of advice I would give you today, as King, godfather and grandfather, it is this: Be yourself,” said His Majesty The King in his speech at the luncheon celebrating the confirmation of Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra was confirmed today in the Palace Chapel, just as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were before her.
