Professor Muhammad Imran received a personal invitation to an event celebrating British South Asian Communities, held on Monday 3rd October at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and hosted by King Charles III and the Queen Consort, Camilla.

Around 200 guests of British Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Nepalese, Bhutanese and Maldivian heritage were in attendance. The event was intended to recognise the contribution that South Asian communities have made to the National Health Service, arts, media, education, business and the armed forces. Working to tackle widespread poverty, inequality and injustice in South Asia, it was founded by the King – then Prince of Wales – back in 2007.

This was the first major event in Scotland hosted by the King and Queen Consort since the mourning period ended for the late Queen Elizabeth II. The couple made sure to spend a moment with each guest, shaking hands and making sure everyone felt welcome. Drinks and light lunch refreshments were served.

With his usual good humour, Professor Imran – who attended with his wife – commented that the event was “very impressive and grand – nearly as good as the University of Glasgow!” Pictured below is his official invitation.
