Portuguese João Vale de Almeida presented diplomatic credentials to Queen Isabella II

An expired Citizen Card is used to travel and apply to reside in the United Kingdom.

The ceremony took place at Buckingham Palace, where the ambassador arrived in an official horse-drawn carriage, a pompous ritual that has hardly changed since the Victorian era of the 1800s.

Credentials are official documents in which an ambassador is appointed by the head of the diplomatic mission in the UK.

An in-person hearing with the 95-year-old queen recently resumed after being temporarily suspended during the covid-19 pandemic.

For about a year, they were held remotely, via videoconference between the Queen, who was at Windsor Castle, and diplomats who were traveling to Buckingham Palace.

On his Twitter account, Valais de Almeida posted a photo detailing the preparations, in which he shows the cufflinks with the official EU flag, consisting of 12 stars in a circle.

The recognition of the head of the EU Delegation to the UK was delayed because the British government understood that diplomatic status should be granted only to representatives of states, not to “organizations.”

In response, the EU also postponed the accreditation process for the new UK ambassador to the EU, Lindsay Croisdale-Appleby, and restricted access and activity of the diplomat, who was number two in the negotiating group on the post-Brexit deal.

The European Union has 143 delegations around the world to which the host countries and their officials have granted privileges and immunities accorded to other diplomatic missions.

The UK officially withdrew from the EU on January 31, 2020, but until December 31, it completed a post-Brexit transition period during which it continued to follow European rules and retained access to the single market.

"Lionel Messi is not an Argentine, Cristiano Ronaldo is not a Portuguese..."

O Brazilian defender Marquinhos said players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are a “privilege” and a “treasure” for football and football fans.

The Paris Saint-Germain centre-back spoke to reporters ahead of the Brazilian’s second World Cup game against Switzerland, scheduled for this Monday. Marquinhos, Messi’s PSG teammate, was asked about the role of these players in the king of the sport.

“I think what’s happening with these players is that Messi is not Argentine, Cristiano is not Portuguese… they move on. They are a perk for football. For people who love this sport, tournaments, competitions, they are a treasure. They don’t just belong to their countries. We all enjoy their presence watching them play. I played with Neymar, with Messi, and I benefit from their presence. Life goes on, other generations will come, but we have to make the most of it,” the centre-back explained.
