NEW Episode: The White House 1600 Sessions Podcast
White House Historical Association President Stewart McLaurin
and British Ambassador to the U.S. Dame Karen Pierce
Discuss Unique Tie Between Nations
WASHINGTON, May 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The White House Historical Association released a new episode of “The White House 1600 Sessions” podcast today featuring a conversation with Dame Karen Pierce, British Ambassador to the United States, about the unique nature of the U.S. – British Alliance. In the episode, Stewart McLaurin, president of the Association, and Dame Pierce sat down ahead of the coronation of King Charles III to discuss how the special relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States continues to evolve.
“It’s wonderful to have occasions like the coronation to remind people in both countries of the history that we come from,” said McLaurin. “History is vitally important. So much of American history can be taught through the prism of the White House itself and the decisions that have been made there. The same could be said for the monarchy which has existed for over a thousand years.”
King Charles III will be crowned almost 70 years to the day of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Ambassador Pierce recalls the numerous trips both have made to the United States, and their affinity for the American people.
The White House 1600 Sessions is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
