Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, is paying an official visit to Macedonia, and today he is set to meet  President Stevo Pendarovski.

Prince Edward will attend an event on the ties between the UK and Macedonia in education, environment and art at the National Philharmonic.

During the Skopje visit, he will meet with Chevening scholarship recipients by the British Government, as well as with young leaders and educators, and will visit a kindergarten where an ECD program implemented by UNICEF with the support of the UK will be presented.

This is Prince Edward’s second visit to Macedonia. In 2006, he opened the new premises of the British Embassy.
