Putin sends congratulations to King Charles despite past mockery of Hitler

Russian President Vladimir Putin jumped up to meet King Charles III. on his new royal role on Saturday, becoming one of the first world leaders to do so in a two-sentence message from the Kremlin.

“Please accept my sincere congratulations on your accession to the throne,” Putin said wrote in a note sent to the UK by the Russian Embassy. “I wish Your Majesty every success, good health and all the best.”

Earlier in the day Charles was officially proclaimed reigning monarch of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth at St James’ Palace in London.

The congratulations came 8 years after Charles, then Prince of Wales, attracted international attention when he reportedly compared Putin to Germany’s Adolf Hitler in a private conversation.

The remark, made as the future king spoke to a woman whose family fled Poland before it was occupied by the Nazis in 1939, came in the wake of Russia’s forcible annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region.

Also King Felipe of Spain extended congratulations to his fellow monarch.

The King, a cousin of the British royal family, wrote to “dearest Charles” to convey “my best wishes… for a fruitful and prosperous reign”.

“Queen Letizia and I wish to convey our personal affection and assurances of our deep friendship to Her Majesty and the Queen Consort,” added Felipe.
