Prince William back on the field, two days after giving up a mass in Windsor ​

Date:

Two days after canceling his appearance at the memorial mass in memory of his godfather, King Constantine II of Greece, the Prince of Wales returned to public engagements on February 29, 2024. The heir to the throne visited a synagogue in central London to participate in discussions about the rise of anti-Semitism in the United Kingdom.

Despite the tormented period that the British royal family is going through, work must continue for the eminent members of the “Firm”. This February 29, 2024, Prince William went to a synagogue in central London, two days after having given up going, for “personal reasons”, to the memorial service in memory of King Constantine II of Greece organized at the St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The Prince of Wales makes his first public appearance since the surprise announcement of this cancellation.

This engagement at the Western Marble Arch Synagogue should have been held on January 27, the international day dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust, in the presence of Kate, but had to be postponed due to the abdominal operation of the Princess of Wales. Without his wife, still recovering, but with a smile, the eldest son of Charles III participated in a series of discussions on the rise of anti-Semitism in Great Britain. He notably spoke with two Holocaust survivors, Manfred Goldberg and Renee Salt, as well as with young Jewish victims of this upsurge. “Prejudice has no place in society. I have said it before and I will say it again. I want you all to know that you can talk about it and talk about your experiences, confided Prince William, whose remarks are relayed by the Daily Mail. Catherine and I are extremely concerned about the rise in anti-Semitism that you spoke about this morning and I am truly sorry if any of you have had to experience this. This is not right place, that’s why I’m here today to reassure you that people care and are listening and that we can’t let this go,” continued the heir to the Crown.

This visit also allowed Prince William to meet ambassadors of the flagship project led by the Holocaust Educational Trust entitled “Lessons from Auschwitz”. The latter, it is explained on the dedicated website, “explores the universal lessons of the Holocaust and its relevance today. The LFA project aims to increase knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust among young people and to highlight highlights what can happen if prejudice and racism become acceptable. During this engagement, the Prince of Wales, more than ever on the front line after Kate’s operation and his father’s cancer, received a bouquet of flowers intended for his wife. Despite her absence, the Princess of Wales remains on everyone’s minds.
