Her Majesty sends a message to the people of Hahoe Village, read by The Duke of York during his tour

Published 14 May 2019

I am very pleased that my son is visiting Andong today.

It is over twenty years since The Duke of Edinburgh and I paid a State Visit to the Republic of Korea, and I recall with great fondness the many places we visited in 1999.

In particular, I remember the very warm welcome that I received in Hahoe Village, on the occasion of my 73rd birthday.

In the months and years ahead, Prince Philip and I wish you every good fortune and happiness.

Elizabeth R
