He also had a newly-cut grey hair-his kippah that represented his badge of office. He portrayed important facts concerning his life while at the ceremony. The fact that he may be one of his country’s leading diplomats was not going to make him change his beliefs and practices as an Orthodox Jew.
The Queen was well aware that Daniel gave up his British citizenship and she asked him how representing a country that he had immigrated over thirty years earlier was going to feel.
