Queen celebrates Commonwealth contribution at palace reception
Prime Minister Theresa May and Boris Johnson made a surprise visit to the event.
The Queen has celebrated the contribution of the Commonwealth diaspora to the UK at a glittering Buckingham Palace reception attended by the Prince of Wales and Prime Minister.
Charles, Camilla, Theresa May and Boris Johnson made a surprise visit to the event which heralds the start of a series of major Commonwealth events this year culminating in a heads of government meeting for global leaders in London this April.
But the Commonwealth Secretariat has denied that a high level group of Commonwealth officials has met in London to consider who might follow the monarch.
He is likely to use the opportunity of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April as an opportunity to meet leaders and discuss common issues.
