PRESIDENT NOVÁK LEAVES FOR LONDON TO ATTEND QUEEN'S FUNERAL

 

Hungarian President Katalin Novák left for London on Sunday to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. “I am leaving for London with my husband, István, to pay my last respects at the queen’s bier on behalf of the Hungarian nation, and attend her funeral service along with world leaders tomorrow,” the president wrote on Facebook. Novák said that although she had never got the opportunity to meet Elizabeth II in person, she respected her for her attitude, wisdom and service of her nation. The Queen died on September 8 at the age of 96 at her summer residence of Balmoral Castle in Scotland after 70 years on the throne.
