England: King Charles offers prayers at Guru Nanak Gurdwara, lauds langar by Sikh community

Britain’s King Charles III, during his visit to a gurdwara, lauded the pop-up Covid-19 vaccine clinic and the langar services by the Sikh community.

During his first tour as monarch of the eastern England region of Bedfordshire, the 74-year-old covered his head with a kerchief and offered his prayers. He sat on the floor with Sikh devotees in the prayer hall, as visuals released following his visit showed.


King Charles inaugurated the Guru Nanak Gurdwara (GNG) Luton and spoke to the local volunteers about its langar service, an associated soup kitchen for the needy and Covid vaccine clinics during the coronavirus pandemic.

Throughout the year, the Luton Sikh Soup Kitchen Stand serves vegetarian hot meals seven days a week. “During the pandemic, the Gurdwara also ran a pop-up Covid vaccine clinic, which was one of the first of its kind in the UK. The Gurdwara encouraged other places of worship to tackle misinformation regarding vaccine hesitancy,” the Twitter handle of the British royal family tweeted. The Twitter handle also shared videos and pictures of King Charles' visit.
