Photos of Rita being named honorary ambassador to Kosovo at the Kosovo Embassy in London today have been added to the gallery! Check out the photos below.
Accepting the honour, Rita said: ‘I will wear the title of honorary ambassador with great pride and responsibility.
‘I grew up in Britain, a country which has given me so much for which I’m grateful. But I will always have a special place in my heart for Kosovo, my country of birth.
‘I’m lucky I’m in a position to travel the world and bring more awareness to my country of birth and let the rest of the world know what a beautiful country it is and how friendly the people are.’
The president went on to say: ‘Rita embodies all what we are about as a nation. What we have been through and what we can achieve when given the chance.
‘Beyond her talent and success that makes us all proud we are most thankful that she’s a Kosovo girl that is proud of her roots, the best bridge between Kosovo, the country she was born in and Britain, the country she now calls home.’
