United Kingdom

In its early history, Britain was subjected to many invasions and migrations from Scandinavia and the Continent. The Romans occupied Britain for several centuries. The Normans, the last of a long succession of invaders, conquered England in 1066.
Under the Normans, pre-Celtic, Celtic, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Norse influences blended into the Briton of today. In addition to the ethnic groups indigenous to the British Isles, immigration in the past few decades has added large numbers of Africans, Europeans, and South Asians to the British population. London, the capital,
is one of the largest cities in Europe and a center of international commerce, education and the arts.
The London diplomatic corps consists of about 2,000 members and the consular corps has some 125. Each November, the Queen hosts a formal evening reception at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle for Heads of Mission and diplomatic staff.
