On behalf of the Government and people of the Republic of Seychelles, and on my own behalf, it gives me great pleasure to offer our warmest congratulations on Your Majesty’s accession to the throne.

In these, as in other matters of which you have been an ardent proponent, such as the environment, climate change, renewable energy, and Small Island Developing States, I pledge to you my full support.

Seychelles and the United Kingdom enjoy excellent relations. We value our ties with the United Kingdom and our membership of the Commonwealth. I am convinced that these bonds of trust, friendship, and cooperation will be further strengthened during Your Majesty’s reign.

I wish Your Majesty and the Royal Family good health, happiness, prosperity, and every success, and look forward to meeting you again in the near future.”
