The Prince of Wales welcomed six Egyptian scholars from the UK-Al-Azhar scholarship programme, including Mohammed Gamal Abdelnour, to Clarence House in a reception that was also attended by British Ambassador to Egypt, John Casson and a number of supporters of the programme.  The meeting was a part of a mutual cooperation program between His Royal Highness and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb in order to promote interfaith dialogue.
