His Majesty, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asante Monarch, will not attend the events marking the funeral ceremony of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
This was communicated officially to King Charles III’s household and the Commonwealth and Development Office in a letter sighted by Opemsuo radio.
The letter noted that His Majesty cannot attend the events.
This was in response to a personal invitation extended to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II by the new British Monarch to attend the events marking the funeral ceremony of the late Queen which will take place today, September 19, 2022.
The invitation also went out to the wife of Asantehene, Lady Julia Osei Tutu.
By the invitation, Otumfuo was to attend the Queen’s Lying-In-State, the King’s Reception, the State Funeral Services and the Foreign Secretary’s Reception.
