A visit focusing on the vulnerable
Britain’s ambassador to Morocco, Thomas Reilly says he is “really excited to showcase the vital roles that girls’ education and youth employment are playing in shaping modern Morocco.
“When we began planning for this visit, I had a very clear view in my mind of the story we wanted this visit to tell. It’s the same story we’ve been telling consistently at this embassy for the last 20 months since my arrival here.
“This official visit by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will highlight Morocco’s focus on women’s empowerment, girls’ education, inclusivity and the encouragement of social entrepreneurship.”
