Abbey welcomes President of Latvia

The President of the Republic of Latvia, His Excellency Raimonds Vējonis, visited Westminster Abbey today, Tuesday 19th July 2016, and laid a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

The President, who was accompanied by his wife Ms Iveta Vējone, is on a governmental visit to the United Kingdom and was later escorted on a tour of the Abbey by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall.

I feel very privileged to work here. I take so much pride in working for a beautiful place like the Abbey, it’s unique.


Alex - Abbey Marshal
