Governor hosts first citizenship ceremony since taking up the post

The Governor, Sir David Steel, took part in his first citizenship ceremony yesterday since taking up the post in Gibraltar.

Organised by the Civil Status and Registration Office and held at The Convent, he received the oath of allegiance to the Queen and a pledge of loyalty from three new British citizens, and presented them with their certificates of nationality.

“Although the numbers were small whilst we adhere to the guidance from HM Government of Gibraltar, the event made for a warm and intimate occasion,” he said.

“Congratulations to the new additions to the British Gibraltarian family.”
