Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is in London to attend a Greek Investment Conference, jointly organized by the Athens Stock Exchange and Morgan Stanley, will meet with King Charles III at the Windsor Castle this evening, Monday. The two will discuss the restoration and development project of the former royal estate in Tatoi, north of Athens, according to official sources.

Charles, then Prince of Wales, had visited Tatoi in 2021 as part of his trip during the commemoration of the 200 years since the start of the Greek War of Independence from the Ottoman Empire.

A foundation established by Charles, The Prince’s Foundation, is said to advise on restoration plans. The foundation manages Dumfries House, an important British 18th century heritage site in Scotland.

Mitsotakis attended, yesterday, a meeting of members of his New Democracy party in London. Today, he will meet with managers and prospective investors at the conference and will visit Windsor Castle at 7 p.m. (local time)

Later Monday, Mitsotakis will meet with Kevin Featherstone, Professor in European Politics at the London School of Economics and Director of the Hellenic Observatory, which was founded 25 years ago.

The Greek PM will give a speech today at the LSE. He will talk, as government sources note, about the challenges faced by both Greece and Europe, about the reforms promoted by the government, the challenges in the run-up to the Greek elections, the country's position in a volatile geopolitical environment and a "difficult" region, but also about his vision in view of claiming the new government term.
