Taking up his appointment as Canadian Ambassador to Greece, Mr. D'Arcy McGreen performed his first official function recently when he presented his credentials to King Paul of Greece.
The King, who is currently living in his summer residence in Corfu, travelled to Athens specially for the presentation and arrived in the Greek capital the night before Mr. McGreen called on him.
Members of the Canadian embassy staff, accompanied by the King's ADC, left for the palace first and were followed by the Royal Rolls Royce car carrying Mr. Edgar D'Arcy McGreer and the Grand Marshal of the Court, M. Stathatos.
Escorted by the Royal Guard, the car proceeded through the main boulevard of Queen Sophia and Herodus Atticus.
After presenting his credentials, Mr. McGreer drove back to the embassy together with the mounted escort.
