Later this month, Prince Charles and Camilla will travel to Greece from March 24-25. The visit is made at the request of the British government, following an invitation from Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
During the visit, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will take part in the Bicentenary Independence Day celebrations in Athens. They will also attend a reception at the reopened National Gallery of Greece and a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma Square. A traditional military parade takes place on the last day of their tour.
This is not Charles and Camilla ‘s first trip to Greece. The royal couple last visited the country in May of 2018. Prince Charles had previously visited the country in 1998.
This is not their first overseas trip since the coronavirus pandemic began. Last October, Prince Charles traveled to Kuwait City to pay his condolences following the death of the late Amir, Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah. And in November 2020, Prince Charles and Camilla traveled to Germany for the country’s National Suppression Day, which celebrates victims of war and fascism.
As the pandemic continues, and the UK remains locked up, the royals will take steps to comply with COVID-19 regulations and guidelines during their journey. Fortunately, both Charles and Camilla were vaccinated. They got their first shots earlier this year.
