The Foreign Affairs Ministry and the British High Commission today said the document which is currently being circulated purporting to be a guide in ‘royal etiquette’ issued by a ‘Welcome Committee of British Royals’, was false.

In a joint statement, the ministry and the High Commission said no such committee has been constituted by either.

The document has been signed by one D.F.P de Mel who is the supposed committee’s secretary.

    De Mel must be either deaf or dead!!!

    Perumal Saturday, 03 February 2018 01:22 PM

    " 18 guidelines to be followed when welcoming the visiting Earl and Countess of Wessex, is ... " - I would suggest to take them for a swim in the Victoria reservoir.

    This is 21centuary,what is so special about the royal family. Most of them have no university education and live on tax payers money.

    Deshapala Friday, 02 February 2018 06:45 PM

    Still better than the sri lankan politikkas!

    Deshapala Friday, 02 February 2018 06:48 PM

    Still better than Sri Lankan politikkas who we stand up for

    CID should investigate and find the culprits.

    Sugath Friday, 02 February 2018 06:38 PM

    70 years of independence and we invite the son of the British head of state as the guest of honor.Should have invited him in 2015 to celebrate 200 years of Britain conquering Lanka.Missed celebrating 500 years of the arrival of Portuguese because there was a change of government in 2004

    Stan Friday, 02 February 2018 09:19 PM

    Please stop.

    das Friday, 02 February 2018 08:51 PM

    Just a simple question for the hostile commenters: Is this Sri Lankan hospitality?

    Banda Friday, 02 February 2018 09:29 PM

    You must be one of the Christian convert,sold your identity to benefit from the invaders.

    das Saturday, 03 February 2018 09:24 AM

    So banda, asking people to be nice to visitors to this country makes me a convert and a traitor? You must be an MR supporter

    rew Saturday, 03 February 2018 11:41 AM

    Some Sri Lankan's prefer impunity to procedures or protocol

    Fernando Saturday, 03 February 2018 08:06 PM

    das,don't twist the argument.They are not ordinary visitors but former rulers who killed,plundered,and converted our people.

    das Saturday, 03 February 2018 09:51 PM

    @fernando, Get over it. Forgive and forget, or do you believe that they are coming here to conquer us again?

    godaya Saturday, 03 February 2018 09:58 PM

    Fernando, you must have your head examined if you think they are anything more than visitors. BTW if you are so concerned about conversion etc, why don't you drop Fernando and get a nice real Sinhala name?

    Alex Friday, 02 February 2018 09:28 PM

    Govt.should take immediate steps to interrogate this person and punish for distribution of such document that belittles Sri Lanka dignity.

    lanka Friday, 02 February 2018 09:35 PM

    This couple is at the bottom of the heap of British Royals! They are non-entities and this shows what esteem UK has for Sri Lanka! They are getting a free holiday for nothing. Hope the Sri Lankan tax-payer does not have to pay for this.

    Jaliya Saturday, 03 February 2018 07:52 AM

    It dosn't matter ... they are British Royals with civilized values that we don't have here. Don't advertise your stupidity in public. (and) for the guy above name Kaveen ...... what is so special about the royal family ? YOU ASK YOUR GRANDMOTHER she will give you long lesson on history.

    Mahila Saturday, 03 February 2018 09:17 AM

    Moronic Comment considering Sri Lankans are considered a welcoming, Hospitable citizens and promotes overseas tourists to ensure that they have enough food to fill there stomachs

    Mahila Saturday, 03 February 2018 09:19 AM

    Do you consider yourselves at the TOP OF THE HEAP, and Sri Lankan taxpayer does not pay for your education, health etc.

    AM Saturday, 03 February 2018 05:45 PM

    SL is promoting tourism and when you mfs make anti statements it wont help our tourism industry. It's like our parliament one side is making the other I'd breaking. 70 years, even in 170 years we will be the same. SL attitude before the 70s was excellent compared to now. Pls try to change for the good of the country

    Banda Saturday, 03 February 2018 07:53 PM

    Jaliya,people like you always exist in every society.Born with no shame,self respect but only the ability to win over benefits.

    Dr Narendran Saturday, 03 February 2018 08:01 PM

    Jaliya,Manila; British Royal family led a criminal empire for 300 years which resulted in the deaths of millions of people all over the world,destructions of cultures,and plundering of wealth. Your education must be very limited,fault is with your parents.

    dalu banda Saturday, 03 February 2018 09:54 PM

    @banda. You are clearly a man with an inferiority complex. Living in an imaginary past and confused about everything. This country will never develop when we have with fellows with that mindset.

    realist Saturday, 03 February 2018 10:01 PM

    Con-Doctor Narendran, the British empire is no more. You seem to be unaware of this. Your parents seem to have taught you only to hang on to your hatred.

    Rohan Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:19 AM

    Banda,you are speaking the truth ,smart Sri lankans would agree with you .Converts,hotel cooks,labourers who live on tourists would be against you,these are the morons of Sri Lanka.

    Sangaralingham Saturday, 03 February 2018 10:08 AM

    Was they invited. Then due courtesy should be extended. Good morals

    Sue Saturday, 03 February 2018 12:55 PM

    It's obviously a fake to make the govt. Look silly and still bowing down to the British. Investigate who was behind it because this is no joke.

    no worries Saturday, 03 February 2018 10:03 PM

    Only idiots who will vote for the criminal cartel anyway will think this will make a bad impression.

    Arnold Saturday, 03 February 2018 01:05 PM

    We would be better off if we did not get independence.

    Logan Saturday, 03 February 2018 08:03 PM

    Of course you would say so,you shameless convert.
