A very heartwarming Background look at how this wonderful Windrush Cymru visit came about:
Professor Uzo Iwobi went to Windsor Castle earlier this year to receive her CBE from Prince William. There, she invited him to her community.
She said: ‘When I came to receive my CBE, I told Prince William, if you think anything of what you are putting on my chest, come and greet the elders in Wales; shake the hands of these elders who have sacrificed for 75 years to make Britain what it is. They have never met royalty.’
William first told her to write to his office, but she insisted: ‘Promise me.’
At that Prince William said: “I will make this happen and I’ll bring Catherine.”
Professor Uzo further added about William:
"Today when he saw me, he said: 'I promised you and I keep my word.'"https://x.com/canellelabe...;t=SLo5iiUhZ52O6n1B3sM_wQ
