Following Sir Adrian Johns’ departure today, Alison MacMillan has been appointed to the office of Governor to perform all the functions of Governor and Commander-in-Chief as required by the Constitution until the Governor-designate’s arrival in December.
On taking the oath of allegiance this afternoon in the Banqueting Hall at the Convent, Alison MacMillan said:
‘Gibraltar is a very special place- geographically, historically, culturally- and it will be a privilege to serve in this role. As a family, we have always been made to feel so welcome in Gibraltar. It is the place in the world where we all feel most at home.’
