In March, Prince Charles and Camilla jointly visit the countries of Cyprus and Jordan. The Prince of Wales packs his bags a bit earlier, because he visits the republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina solo. Clarence House announced this on Tuesday.
Prince Charles will be in Sarajevo and Srebenica on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 March. He will pay his respects at the Srebenica Memorial to the victims of the genocide that took place 25 years ago. He also meets survivors, including mothers who are still looking for their missing relatives.
Camilla accompanies her husband as he continues his journey in Cyprus. The visit to Cyprus is the first royal visit since Queen Elizabeth visited the Mediterranean island in 1993. The new visit aims to re-establish historical ties with Cyprus in areas such as science and education. Until Saturday March 21, Charles and Camilla will visit the capital Nicosia as well as the Troodos Mountains and the port city of Larnaca to immerse themselves in traditional Cypriot culture.
After the visit to Cyprus, Charles and Camilla will be in Jordan until Wednesday, March 25, where they will be accompanied by members of the Jordanian royal family for much of the trip. During the royal visit, Jordan shows how the country receives refugees and how these refugees manage to integrate into the Jordanian community with the support of organizations.
