Je suis ravie d'être ici ce soir et je voudrais vous remercier pour votre accueil chaleureux.
Your Excellency, Companions, Ladies and Gentlemen As the proud Royal Patron of Emmaus UK, I am delighted to be here tonight to commemorate its 25th anniversary.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I really am delighted to have had a brief opportunity to meet many of you just now and would like to commend you on your strenuous efforts – at long last – to address the grave threats to health posed by antimicrobial resistance.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a huge pleasure to welcome so many supporters and friends of Duchenne UK here at Highgrove tonight.

Ladies and Gentlemen,


As the very, very, proud President of Maggie's, I'm delighted to be here in Manchester today to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this unique charity and to open the new Maggie's Centre at the Christie Hospital.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am delighted to have this chance of joining you, albeit very briefly at the end of visit here to Prizren and indeed to Kosovo.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dame i Gospodo, veliko mi je zadovoljstvo da sam danas ovde u prilici da vam se kratko obratim. (Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my great pleasure to be here today to have the opportunity to say a few words to you).

Ladies and Gentlemen, I couldn't be more delighted to join you here this evening, particularly as Vice Patron of the British Council, which incidentally, to my horror I discovered I've done for 37years. I am delighted to be able to join you this evening to celebrate their 70th Anniversary in Zagreb, which is a wonderful record of dedication over all those years.

Madam President, I am enormously grateful to you for your very kind words on such a special occasion and I'm so grateful to you for arranging such a special dinner this evening.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I hate to get you back into your seats again, but I had to say before I go that it has been a very special afternoon and I have been particularly touched by those kind words.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is a remarkable institution here, the Harrogate International Festival. So I must just say on this occasion how enormously proud I am to have been associated over the last several years with this, it has become a national treasure really I think.
