His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge and Earl of Strathearn KG KT has sent a letter to the General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen in his role as Lord High Commissioner.
Prince William passed on Her Majesty's "very best wishes" and "continued support" to all in the Free Church of Scotland.
Acknowledging the difficulties the Church has faced over the last year due to the pandemic he was particularly impressed to hear how congregations had used technology to continue supporting their communities.
Prince William was appointed Lord High Commissioner in 2020. The General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland was moved online last May due to COVID-19.
The Lord High Commissioner is the Sovereign’s personal representative to the Annual General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland and attends on behalf of the Sovereign.
