Gov. Bryant receives Freedom of the City of London

Bryant receives honor in London, hopes to increase U.K.-Mississippi trade

Winston Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower, Morgan Freeman, Jimmy Choo and Gov. Phil Bryant.

Bryant on his recent trip to London joined a list of dignitaries and celebrities dating to 1237, recipients of the Freedom of the City of London. Its closest U.S. equivalency would be a key to the city presentation from an American town. Oscar-winning Morgan, who received the honor in 2014, and Bryant are the only two Mississippi recipients, Bryant’s office said.

“It was a phenomenal trip,” Bryant said of the May 14-18 cultural and trade trip he and Mississippi Development Authority officials took to London.
