Opening of the Fourth Assembly

Yesterday Ngakma Nor'dzin attended the opening of the Fourth Assembly at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. The 7th June started wet but brightened up by about 10 am. Her Highness the Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall, officially opened the Assembly.

Ngakma Nor'dzin shook hands with the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles and Carwyn Jones, the new First Minister. Prince Charles asked who she represented and Ngakma Nor'dzin was pleased to be able to tell him of the Buddhist Council of Wales.

After the opening ceremony the Royal party, government officials and guests enjoyed a delicious meal at the Millennium Centre.
