    King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla of England recently celebrated the contributions of East and Southeast Asian communities to the United Kingdom by holding a reception at Buckingham Palace.

    The reception hosted over 300 people at Buckingham Palace on Feb. 1, marking the end of Lunar New Year celebrations

    During the event, workers at the King’s official London residence served champagne and canapes to guests from various different fields, such as the Armed Forces, the arts, business, healthcare and others. 

    Among the notable guests were fashion designers Alexa Chung and John Rocha, as well as Tengku Amir Shah, the crown prince of Selangor.

    Other members of the royal family were present, including the Princess Royal, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke of Kent, the Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra. 

    The king and queen consort marked the festival last year by visiting Chinatown in London when they were the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. 

    As part of the trip, the king joined a discussion on anti-Asian hate crimes. The queen consort met police officers, immigration caseworkers and clients at the Chinese Information and Advice Centre.

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.

    However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.

    We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way.  Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
