London, March 17: British head of state Queen Elizabeth II is said to have fast-tracked the new Indian High Commissioner vtej Sar’s presentation of credentials — which took place on Wednesday — to avoid a breach of protocol. All ambassadors and high commissioners accredited to Britain are required to formally present their credentials to Queen Elizabeth. As per protocol, such envoys can only meet her or attend an event where she is present after such a formality has occurred. Though Sar arrived for his posting in January, diplomatic sources indicated that his presentation of credentials had been tentatively scheduled for early April. However, on Wednesday evening, the queen was to attend the annual high commissioners’ banquet hosted by the lord mayor of London and the Royal Commonwealth Society. (IANS)
