To His Royal Majesty the King, Albert the Second, and Her Majesty the Queen Mary,

It is with both great sorrow and appreciation in my heart that I write this letter; sorrow that such an occasion has visited itself upon my people, and appreciation that, though we have long remained isolated, there are leaders in this world who welcome us with warm sympathy. It is my sincerest hope that I never find myself reciprocating sympathy for any such catastrophe befallen your people. However, we will remember your kindness in times of our great pain.

Humbly yours,

John Valentino,

Keeper of Man

A Centenary message from His Majesty The King to the
Royal Gallambrian Air Force


On this, the centenary of its formation, I send my heartfelt congratulations to the Royal
Gallambrian Air Force at home and overseas, and to all of its families and loved ones.

The anniversary of one of the world's oldest independent Air Force's is of great significance, and it is
fitting to pay tribute to the tenacity, skill and sacrifice of the men and women who have served within its ranks
over the last century, and who have defended our freedom so gallantly. Through its enduring focus on
professionalism, excellence and innovation, the Royal Gallambrian Air Force stands as a shining
example of inspiration around the World today and for the next generations.

May the glory and honour that all ranks have bestowed on the Royal Gallambrian Air Force light
its pathway to the future, guarding our skies and reaching for the stars.

Per Ardua Ad Astra.

To: His Majesty, Albert II, King of @Gallambria; the Government of the Kingdom of Gallambria
From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Ahromanion

Your majesty,

The grave news of the terrorist attacks that have rocked your great nation have shocked the Arhomaioi to their core. Your nation has always been perceived by Arhomaneia as stable and mature, and your people level headed and not given to rash and foolish actions. That a group of your citizens has decided to take up arms against the rightful government is profoundly shocking, especially so in the appalling and indiscriminate manner in which it has been carried out. This will surely call down God's wrath upon them, not just for their actions against their appointed monarch, but for the murders that have stained their hands.

For that is what these attacks were - nothing but murders, in an attempt to destabilise your honoured country for short-sighted and ill conceived ends. I pray to Christ and his Saints that you and your people will rise stronger than ever from these horrendous acts, and that these murderers will be brought to justice, no matter where they may flee to or hide.

If you have need of any aid that the Megas Agios Basileia, then all you have to do is ask. I do not doubt that all of Eurth will stand with Gallambria.

I will include the people of Tamworth, who have suffered so much, and Gallambria in my prayers, and I have ordered that similar prayers are to said in every church across Arhomaneia.

May God guide you and your people in this, your hour of need,

Kommodos III,

by the Grace of Christ the God,

Agios Basileos kai Autokrator ton Arhomaion

Full Text of The King's 2020 Christmas Message

At this time of year, few sights evoke more feelings of love than seeing families around the wurld gather to celebrate Christmas.

In 1991 during the Marenesian War, I spent Christmas onboard the HMGS Monmouth as a father of two children, the first time having been away from my family at this time of year.

Since then, I have endeavoured to remain at home here to be with the ones I loved.

Gathering around the table here at Santhope House for Christmas lunch, gives us a chance to think about the year ahead - I am looking forward to a busy 2021.

It also allows us to reflect on the year that has passed, as we think of those who are far away or no longer with us, for me personally, my son the Late Duke of Wessex.

Many people say the first few Christmas' after losing a loved one is particularly hard. But it's also a time to remember all that we have to be thankful for.

This year, as part of my Christmas tradition of donating to charity. I am glad to announce, that Mary and I have agreed to establish the Duke of Wessex Foundation and Institute for Brain Cancer Research.

It is true that the wurld has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Bible contains a passage, which many see as a verse of hope and prosperity. "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

Sooner or later we all become award of the passing of the years, but every now and then we get a sharp reminder that time is moving on rather quick than we expect.

This happened to me last month when we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Mary and I were very touched that so many of you were kind enough to send messages of good wishes.

There is no point in regretting the passage of time. Growing older is one of the facts of life, and it has its own compensations. Experience should help us to take a more balanced view of events and to be more understanding about the foibles of human nature.

Like everyone else, I learn about what is going on in the wurld from the media, but I am fortunate to have another source of information. Every day hundreds of letters come to my desk, a I make a point of reading as many of them as I possibly can.

The vast majority are a pleasure to read. There are also sad ones from people who want help, there are interesting ones from people who want to tell me what they think abut current issues, or who have suggestions to make about changing the way things are done. Others are full of frank advice for me and my family and some of them do not hesitate to be critical.

It is only too easy for passionate loyalty to one's own country, race or religion, or even to one's favourite football club, to be corroded into intolerance, bigotry and ultimately into violence.

We have witnessed some frightening examples of this in recent years. All too often intolerance creates the resentment and anger which fill the headlines and divide communities and nations and even families.

From time to time we also see some inspiring examples of tolerance. Mr William McInnes, whose daughter Catherine lost her life in the horrifying Tamworth Terror Attacks, impressed the whole world by the depth of his forgiveness.

His strength, and that of his wife, and the courage of their daughter, came from their Christian conviction. All of us will echo their prayer that out of personal tragedies of Tamworth and other similar tragedies, may come a reconciliation between communities.

There are striking illustrations of the way in which the many different communities can come together in peaceful harmony. In August, I attended the National Day of Remembrance inter-faith service Observance at St Christopher's Cathedral in Tamworth. At that service we were all united in our willingness to pray for the common good.

This is a symbol of mutual tolerance and I find it most encouraging. Of course it is right that people should their beliefs and their faiths strongly and sincerely, but perhaps we should also have the humility to accept that, while we each have right to our own convictions, others have right to theirs too.

At the Remembrance service, I had the opportunity to talk to Allan McMurtrie, the leader of the Cambrian Independence Party, who was the leader of the Cambrian Revolutionary Army during the Cambrian Uprising. While he was a part of the Cambrian independence movement in the 90's, he unreservedly stated that political violence has no place in Gallambrian society, particularly not in this day and age when we have so much at stake.

But, I am afraid that the Christmas message of goodwill has usually evaporated by the time we lay our heads down for a much needed sleep at the end of the day. This year I hope we will remember the many victims of violence and intolerance and the suffering of their families. Christians are taught to love their neighbours, not just at Christmas, but all the year round.

I hope we will all help each other to have a happy Christmas and, when the New Year comes, resolve to work for tolerance, peace, and an understanding between all people.

Happy Christmas to you all.

      MEDIA RELEASE - GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON THE SHOOTING DOWN OF
      FLEUR DE LYS AIRCRAFT.
      Today, The Prime Minister along with his National Security Advisor and the National Security Council held an emergency meeting in regards to the disaster that took place today in @Derthalen airspace. Officials from the Armed Forces, Gallambrian Intelligence Agencies, and representatives from other Government ministries attended. They discussed what more we have established about the nature of the incident; the latest information on the precursors to the incident; and progress towards a credible investigation into the incident.
      While it is too early to be categoric about the cause of the incident, the growing weight of evidence suggests that the @Fleur de Lys aircraft was shot down by a Derthalan Air Force fighter aircraft. This is backed up further by information provided to the National Security Council by Royal Gallambrian Air Force's Airspace Surveillance Section that stated, that there was no prior communication between the two aircraft and that the Derthalan Air Force fighter aircraft acted without provocation.
      We believe that it is vital that an international team of specialist investigators are able to access the wreckage to establish the full facts of what  happened and to ensure that the remains of the victims are returned to their loved ones as soon as possible.
      Furthermore, the Prime Minister and the National Security Council has asked the Chief of Defence Staff to provide support of any kind to Fleur de Lys and to step up concentrated Airspace Surveillance of the airspace approaches over Derthalan.
