MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – King Charles and Imelda Romualdez Marcos are no strangers to each other. The two met in 1975 during the coronation of King Birendra of Nepal. Charles was then a Prince and Marcos, First Lady of the Philippines.
The King wanted very much to have Mrs. Marcos present at his coronation on May 6 in London but the latter’s health condition prevents her from traveling.
But no worries, Mrs. Marcos’s son, President Bongbong Marcos will personally hand over to the King, a priceless coronation gift — no, not a speedboat, but a signed, framed photograph of the two during their 1975 meeting.
It will be one for the books and for the esteemed treasures at the Buckingham Palace!
