Some very British visitors

Last weekend our children and young people in Bucharest welcomed some very unusual guests: two British officers from the Grenadier Guards regiment, who were visiting the British Embassy.

After a traditional welcome with gifts of bread and salt the guests were treated to a feast of Romanian dishes prepared by the youngsters. Then, after dinner, the two gentlemen treated the children to a short documentary about their work with the British royal family.

They also answered questions from the children, who were particularly intrigued by their uniforms. As our picture shows, the Busby hats proved especially popular!

Thank you to the British Embassy Bucharest, for facilitating this memorable meeting.We look forward to welcoming the Grenadiers again one day.
