President of Germany visits Abbey

The President of Germany, His Excellency Dr Frank-Walter Steinmeier, visited Westminster Abbey on Tuesday 28th November during an official visit to the United Kingdom.

The President, accompanied by his wife, Elke Büdenbender, was welcomed by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, who invited him to lay a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

The Dean escorted the President on a tour of the Abbey, before inviting him to sign the Distinguished Visitors’ Book.

I’ve worked here for over thirty years and have seen many of the major services - it’s strange to realise that you are in a small way part of history.


Pamela - Rector's Secretary
