PH ambassador to the Holy See Grace Relucio Princesa assumes post by Leslie Ann Aquino | Manila Bulletin

Philippine Ambassador to the Holy See Grace Relucio Princesa formally assumed her diplomatic mission over the weekend.

Princesa presented her credentials to Pope Francis during a meeting at the Vatican on September 1.

In a CBCP News post, the 62-year-old ambassador said she is ready to take steps to further improve the country’s ties with the Vatican.
“I will see how can I improve enhance Philippine-Vatican relations since we have commonalities on issues like migration, climate change, and interfaith,” she said.

“I also hope to assist the estimated Filipino religious community here,” added Princesa.

It was last January when President Duterte nominated Princesa as Philippine Ambassador to the Holy See. Her nomination was later approved by the Commission on Appointments.

Also known as “Nanay Amba”, Princesa was born in Ligao, Albay.

A widow and mother of five children, she had spent more than 20 years in the Philippine Diplomatic Service before she was named Assistant Secretary of the Foreign Affairs Department’s Legislative Liaison Unit.

She was also the first female Philippine Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates and had previous postings in Iraq, USA, Egypt, and Switzerland.

Princesa has a degree in International Relations from the University of the Philippines and took a master in Migration Studies in Miriam College.
