Warm wishes on the eve of Bermuda’s national holiday have been sent by King Charles III to David Burt.

The monarch sent the “warmest congratulations” to the Premier and the people of Bermuda.

“I look forward to the continuing warm friendship, and the strong and close partnership that we share, working together for prosperity, democracy and peace, as we face these challenging times.

“As you, and the people of Bermuda celebrate today, my wife joins me in sending you our warmest good wishes for the year ahead.”

Originally Empire Day, the holiday started as a celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday, evolved into the May 24 holiday and was renamed Bermuda Day in 1979.
