June 2021 General Meeting/Speaker Series – A Royal Review with the Queen’s Deputy Lieutenant
3 June, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Our June GM has gone through several permutations not least the passing of HRH, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip. Well necessity can be the mother of invention with the booster shot of the extreme kindness and generosity of special friends. So, I am particularly grateful that John Barber, Representative Deputy Lieutenant for the London Borough of Newham and Deputy Lieutenant for Greater London agreed to be our special guest. No one is better qualified for a front seat, up close and personal, discussion of the Royals as we honour the 95th birthday of HM the Queen and, sadly, commemorate HRH the Duke of Edinburgh. Lost to the royal family and the country a few months shy of his 100th birthday, Prince Philip fulfilled his oath of “liege man of life and limb.” Following a few steps behind HM, he completed a remarkable number of engagements as the longest serving royal consort in history.
John Barber will join us in full uniform and regalia to profile his duties which, I promise, will fascinate you. John has a long career in property and a Rolodex the length of the Book of Kells which is only appropriate as he loves Ireland where he has a vacation home. A Freeman of the City of London, John has been a Prime Warden of his livery company, The Blacksmiths as well as one of the founding Liveryman 0f the Worshipful Company of Arts Scholars. He is a busy man indeed dedicated to charity and service making me all the more grateful for his finding time to address KCWC.
