Prince Charles reunited with old friend the Dalai Lama
Pair meet ahead of spiritual leader’s Scottish visit
THE Prince of Wales and the Dalai Lama greeted each other at Clarence House like old friends when the two men met for the first time in four years.
Charles is a long-time supporter of the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, who is seen by China as a separatist threat.
Since the heir to the throne last met the Dalai Lama, he has held discussions with China’s president, Hu Jintao, raising the subject of Tibet with the leader during talks in London in 2009.
The Tibetan spiritual leader was today travelling to Edinburgh, Dundee and Inverness to promote his message of non-violence, compassion and universal responsibility.
Meanwhile, Charles’ son the Duke of Cambridge, turned 30 today. Prince William was expected to mark the occasion with a private celebration.
