King Charles III has spoken of the “heartbreaking loss of life” in Israel and Gaza during an event at Mansion House in the City of London.

As he stressed the importance of understanding, he said, “This includes the practice of our religious faiths, in freedom and mutual understanding. One of my first acts as Sovereign, a little over a year ago, was to open the doors of Buckingham Palace to the leaders of the major Faiths represented across these islands, to welcome them with respect and indeed love, and to re-dedicate my life to protecting the space for Faith itself within our shores. Such understanding, both at home and overseas, is never more vital than at times of international turmoil and heartbreaking loss of life.”

The event at Mansion House marked the symbolic arrival of the new monarch, and the Pearl Sword was presented to the King. This ceremony dates back to the 14th century.
