    and also welcomed to my official residence

    And I went as the first Irish president to the United Kingdom and met with Queen Elizabeth II, and also welcomed to my official residence -- which we call "Áras an Uachtaráin," the house of the president -- members of the royal family, including, notably, the Prince of Wales.

    Is welcomed a past tense or a past participle in the above sentence?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: and also welcomed to my official residence

    Past tense. Simplified, rearranged, and split in two, the sentence says "I went to the United Kingdom. I also welcomed members of the royal family to my official residence."
