Serbian Orthodox Church Patriarch Irinej has received the Prince of Wales, who is on Wednesday visiting Serbia.
Prince Charles – known as a great advocate of dialogue among the world’s most widespread religions – previously took part in an interfaith dialogue of representatives of Christian, Islamic and Jewish communities at Princess Ljubica’s Residence, Tanjug reported.
Earlier in the day, Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, took a walking tour of Kalemegdan, after which the prince walked to Princess Ljubica’s Residence, while the duchess visited the Home for Children without Parental Care, where she met with representatives of UNICEF and the Novak Djokovic Foundation.
Later in the day, the prince is scheduled to visit the Temple Saint Sava, whose history also links the peoples of the United Kingdom and Serbia.
Tanjug said that British missionary and benefactor Francis McKenzie, who lived in Belgrade from 1876 until his death in 1895, “is among the few foreigners whose name is on the list of the cathedral’s major benefactors.”
