The British Government had rolled out the red carpet for the foreign minister of the GOS in London, having arranged for a trio of rolls royces to bring him and his delegates to 10 Downing, were they were prepared a special lunch by some of the top chefs in London.  Prime Minister Urquehart would great them there, "Hello everyone, thank you for coming to London on this most auspicious day, we hope your long flight was a good one?" he said shaking hands before sitting down at the table.

The trip to London would be a first, of presumably many abroad for Illio Rayzio, an Exalted Guardian, a member of the inner circle of the Grand Circle, one of the Grand Masters' most trusted associates. Utilizing one of the few existing ultra-long-range business jets that the Grand Order had in possession, the trip would be made light; only a few staffers and aides would make the trip with Illio. Along the trip, the small group would discuss further external affairs, as well as discuss the objectives set forth by the Grand Master for this first official venture abroad by diplomats of the Order. A few hours sleep would also be afforded before the plane arrived in London to the pomp set forth by the British Government.

 

Alongside Illio, the rest of the delegation would be wearing formal attire; business suits that were well pressed and had pins with the coat of arms of Sol adorning their lapels, a small patriotic touch. Making the journey into the city proper, the delegation would enjoy the comfort afforded them by the government cars sent to fetch them, commenting positively on the effort that was being put into their visit.

 

"Sol, and I, personally thank you for your hospitality shown thus far," said Illio, speaking for the rest of his delegation when he greeted Urquehart at 10 Downing. "The trip was a long one, flying across one hemisphere to another is always an experience that takes a little getting used to." He and the rest of the delegation would move to take a seat once their hosts had indicated their intentions to have luncheon.

Due to events the initial meeting had to be cut short however Illio would be given significant guarantees on his safety and that of his delegation. After King William took power it was decided an audience with the King directly was justified as such the Solinese would be taken to Buckingham Palace. Once past the entrance and in the throne room William had been waiting.

 

"Exalted Guardian, my apologies for recent events. I can promise you Britain has made a return to full stability now"

After being assured his safety in London, despite the few days of turmoil, Illio would remain along with his counterparts in a relatively obscure bed and breakfast whilst the government of Britain was reformed. Although he would not attend any government functions during that time, he and his staff would utilize the time to get work done for their own nation, conducting informal meetings in one a provided study to discuss future diplomatic moves, and ongoing diplomatic events. Europe was in a time of eventful transition, and it would require treading carefully over the next few months, if any discussions were undertaken with any nation now.

 

With a new invitation extended to him, Illio would proceed to Buckingham Palace with his staffers for a meeting with the monarch after a few days in London, the Exalted Guardian now much more rested, given his time spent in the British capitol, and not having to traverse the length of the Atlantic for the meeting. Upon arrival before the King, Illio would bow in customary fashion.

 

"Apology accepted, Your Grace, thank you for extending a personal invitation to me, I'm honored by the chance to speak directly to you," he stated, in a polite tone. "I'm glad that Britain has made a return to stability, there is much movement in Europe at this moment."

William nodded. "Indeed, Europe has been through too much and once again was faced with destructive war. Luckily it seems most of these conflicts have settled down now and a relative state of stability has returned." He said while some servants would provide chairs for both the Exalted Guardian and his staffers. "That being said I must say I and my government have been impressed with the advances your own state has made as of late. Both the rise and the increase in influence to such a previously anarchic region came as a welcome surprise"

"I am glad that things have been able to settle down, despite the upheaval, especially with Carthage collapsing quite quickly. Although we have seen some whispers of internal problems in Ukraine, it appears that much of the continent has settled back to a peaceful status quo, like you said," noted Illio, thanking the servants for the chairs quietly, before taking a seat before the monarch.

 

"There is much work still to do in the south, our nation is fighting an internal conflict of its own, cleansing strongmen and what amount to feudal overlords from our lands, so that all our citizens can live in freedom's embrace. Much has been accomplished, but there is still quite a bit more to do, admittedly. I'm glad that our nations' coming has been a welcoming surprise, it seems as though news of its arrival was taken with some hushed complacency. But I don't think the Grand Master would have it any other way, Gottfried is a man of quiet composure, and keeping a low profile is part of his [i]modus operandi[/i]."

William nodded "A man after my own heart, now as for business. We live in a fragile world, it is in such a world that partners are hard to come by and friends even less so. The United Kingdom sees a likeminded state in Sol, while I understand if you would be reluctant to engage in agreements that provide you an obligation at this point I would ideally like to see some form of agreement that includes easing of trade as well as a general commitment to developing relations"
