Prince Charles Is ‘Back on Tour’ & Here’s What We Know About the Trip
It’s official: Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles are back on the road. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall just landed in Amman to kick-start their royal tour of Egypt and Jordan.
The couple revealed the exciting news in an Instagram video featuring their plane landing followed by their exit from the aircraft. “Back on tour!” the post’s caption read.
We first learned about the visit late last month, when the royal family announced it in a separate social media post.
“At the request of the British Government, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and The Arab Republic of Egypt from 16th—19th November,” the caption read. Per the post, the tour will center around the current climate crisis and “will explore how leaders can implement commitments following COP26 (2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference).”
The caption continued, “Their Royal Highnesses will visit Jordan in the year that marks both Jordan’s own centenary and 100 years of the UK-Jordan bilateral relationship. The Royal visit to Egypt will highlight the country’s close relationship with the UK, and will provide an opportunity to demonstrate Egypt’s growing commitment to protecting the environment.”
It’s important to note that the trip marks the first major overseas tour for any member of the royal family since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
So, while it's only a few days, we have a feeling these two have a ton planned.
