His Excellency Mr Lee Myung-bak,
President of the Republic of Korea,
Cheong Wa Dae, Seoul
I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former president Kim Dae-jung.
I extend my condolences to you and would ask you to convey my deepest sympathy to his family in their bereavement, and to the people of the Republic of Korea.
“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.
