Merry Christmas 2013
The wishes of HRH Crown Prince Leka of the Albanians
Dear fellow Albanians,
In my name and in the name of the Albanian Royal Family, I wish a Merry Christmas to all Albanians, wherever they happen to be, whilst celebrating this joyful day.
Congratulations and blessings for Peace on Earth to those of goodwill during this traditional holiday which is characterized by joyful spirits. This wish is ever more important this year commemorating the 1300th anniversary of the Edict of Milan by which the Roman Emperor of Illyrian origin, Constantine the Great, allowed the practice of Christian worship, giving the example of religious tolerance and unity. A message unique to the Albanians which we can offer to the world with great pride.
This heritage and treasure, The Albanian Royal Family, in which all the religions are represented and integrated so naturally, considers as one of the most precious values of our nation. I am determined together with many to preserve and promote these values within our society!
Peace be upon you, brotherhood and unity to all albanians and our friends world wide.
Warm greetings from the heart to all.
LEKA II, Crown Prince of the Albanians
