AUSSIE boy made good Mark Regev officially became Israel’s ambassador to the Court of St James’s last week, when he presented his “letters of credence” to Queen Elizabeth.
The former Mount Scopus Memorial College student, who was born Mark Freiberg, met Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace last Friday, together with his wife Vered.
The letters confirmed Regev’s diplomatic credentials and, according to the Israeli Embassy, “affirmed the deep ties between the United Kingdom and Israel”.
The new ambassador, who served for several years as chief spokesman for Benjamin Netanyahu, said, “It was a great honour to present my credentials to the Queen. Israel and the United Kingdom are partners and allies. The strong cooperation between our two democracies serves to make both our peoples more prosperous and more secure.”
