On Tuesday 3 May, The Queen held an audience with the Syriac Orthodox Church Youth Association.
Father Chabo Elkhoury presented The Queen with a gift from the Patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox Church in Damascus. When the Youth Association visited the Patriarch in Damascus, they took a copy of The Queen's Prayer Book as a gift. The Patriarch now wanted to give a gift to The Queen. The gift was a handwritten Bible in Aramaic.
