Kuwait ambassador honoured by Queen with ‘rare and exceptional honour’

Queen Elizabeth II has honoured Kuwait’s Ambassador to the UK, Khaled Al-Duwaisan, with the Order of St. Michael and St. George.

Marshal of the Diplomatic Corps Alistair Harrison told KUNA on Wednesday that the order is a rare and exceptional honor bestowed by the British monarch in recognition of Al-Duwaisan’s efforts to strengthen ties between the two countries.

Harrison praised Al-Duwaisan for his role as a senior diplomat in the UK for the past 30 years. Al-Duwaisan has served as Kuwait’s ambassador in London since 1992, rising to the position of diplomatic field chief in 2002. The Queen sent a special car from Buckingham Palace to transport the ambassador and his wife to the award ceremony, according to Harrison.
