Instagram captions . . . “Following a series of devastating earthquakes in the region, The King has met members of the Syrian and Turkish diaspora communities in London to show his support to those affected during this difficult time.
Over 13 million people have been impacted across Turkey and Syria.
In Hounslow, His Majesty met volunteers who have been collecting, packaging and organising the transportation of food, blankets and warm clothing for vulnerable people in Turkey.
In Trafalgar Square, The King launched Syria’s House, a temporary Syrian community tent where members of the Syrian community can come together to support those who need it most.”
My reaction . . . I think the King looks the part, and is fitting in to his new place very well. He is no longer trying to do what he wants to do whilst keeping himself firmly in second place. Now he is more assured, more self confident and it shows, it enables him to do the job better, but doesn’t make him come across as cocky or arrogant. I think he is making, and will make, his mark, positively, but quietly. Here, he is giving the white helmet woman all his attention and taking in what she is saying – making good contact and sending her a good message.
