King Charles III

On Tuesday 14th November King Charles III was celebrating his 75th birthday. The book about his life The Leadership and Vision of a Modern Monarch was lunched that Tuesday in the most prestigious hotel in London Claridge’s in front of 200 invited guest among whom was also our Principal Dr. Sci. Martin-Tino Časl with his wife Zdenka Časl. Author is Robert Robson who has been a keen observer of the Royal Family and the history, tradition and changing persona of British royalty for more than 30 years. A royal editor and correspondent for major media outlets around the world, he has extensive first-hand experience of royal life – both in the glare of public scrutiny and behind the scenes – having toured with the royals on countless occasions. Arthur Edwards, whose photography features within pages of book, is a legend of royal reporting. From the mid-‘70s onwards, wherever the senior royals have traveled, Arthur and his camera have accompanied them, documented over 200 royal tours to more than 120 countries. The book also includes a wider societal narrative, highlighting stories of success and progress during His Majesty’s lifetime in social, technological and commercial spheres. The book presents a celebration of Charles’s life and achievements in the year of his Coronation and 75th birthday, and looks forward to how he intends to shape the future of the monarchy over the years to come. The book has 6 chapters: The young prince; Family life; The new king; The global leader; An environmental pioneer; A vision of modern Britain. In the last chapter there are several British schools presented including British International School of Zagreb. We are very honored that our school is included in this magnificent monograph. It was presented by authors and Craig Vye from St James's House. In a very spontaneous environment, the three of them told numerous anecdotes about Charles's life from his school days to the present day. They were joined by Kevin Gant - The Mirror Photographer and Ken Wharfe - Former personal protection officer to the Princess of Wales, Prince William and Prince Henry. Our Principal spent a pleasant afternoon talking to old acquaintances from previous promotions at Westminster Abbey, two and four years ago. The pictures show part of the atmosphere from that event.
