Earlier today, Prince Rahim attended the Commonwealth Day Service of Celebration, in the presence of His Majesty The King, Head of the Commonwealth, at Westminster Abbey in London, England.

Prince Rahim, representing Mawlana Hazar Imam, led the procession of Loyal Societies in his capacity as Vice President-designate of the Royal Commonwealth Society.

Following the event, Prince Rahim met with His Majesty The King, as well as senior members of the royal family and delegates including representatives from other faith communities.

Commonwealth Day is celebrated each year with a multi-faith service at Westminster Abbey. This year, His Majesty delivered his Commonwealth Day message during the service, in his new role as head of the Commonwealth.

Organised by the Royal Commonwealth Society, the Commonwealth Day Service celebrates the Commonwealth of Nations and provides an opportunity to focus attention on this voluntary association of 56 countries and their commitment to promoting democracy, human rights, the rule of law, and equality for their 2.5 billion citizens.

Senior leadership of the UK Jamat were also in attendance.
