Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia to the United Kingdom Aleksandra Joksimović presented Letters of Credence to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 26 March 2019.
Ambassador Aleksandra Joksimović also communicated a message from Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić that the royal family is always welcome to Belgrade and that every visit, like the one in 2016, when Prince Charles visited Serbia, contributes to better mutual relations.

The Ambassador highlighted the First World War as important for the common history in which, along with Serbian fighters, Admiral Ernest Trubridge and Lady Padgett took part.
“We sincerely hope that the next generation of the royal family will be ready to visit Serbia,” said Ambassador Joksimović, who gave the Queen a Collection of Works on the topic of 180 years of Serbian-British relations.
